Real madrid makes History: Wins Champions League back to back as Ronaldo wins it for Real Madrid
Real Madrid have become the first ever team to win the Champions League in successive years since 1992 after a 4 – 1 victory over Juventus in Cardiff on Saturday, thanks to a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo.
Zinedine Zidane\’s men created history with this win which was also the club\’s first ever Champions League – La Liga double since 1958. Though Real opted to start with Isco rather than Bale, they roared into the lead in the 20th minute when Ronaldo found the bottom corner with a first time finish off Carvajal\’s cutback.
Juventus went on to equalise seven minutes later when Mario Mandzukic scored a stunning overhead kick to leave the game in the balance at half-time.
However, Real Madrid unleashed their lethal self in the second half. With Juventus defending in numbers, Casemiro saw his hopeful long ranger take a deflection and beat Buffon. A few minutes later, Cristiano Ronaldo bagged his brace with a neat side-footed finish at the near post after Modric\’s cutback. Marco Asensio applied the finishing touches late on to make it 4-1.
A shell-shocked Juve had nothing to offer for the rest of the game as Real Madrid danced their way to a historical triumph that will be talked about for years to come!
