Real Madrid are champions for the eleventh time, after beating Atletico Madrid in a high-tension game that ended 5-3 through penalty after 120 minutes of play with scoreline ending at 1-1.
Zidane became the seventh manager in the history of the champions league to win the title both as a player and as a coach. The French man has coached for less than five months, yet is already just the seventh man to both coach and play for champion teams in the competition’s 61-year history. The France great, who scored the winning goal for Madrid in the 2002 final, joins an elite group that includes Johan Cruyff and Pep Guardiola.
Atletico missed a penalty in the 48th through Griezmann when his shot hit the bar. The penalty was awarded for Pepe’s clumsy tackle against Fernando Torres.
