19 June 2017

Gareth Bale's dreams came true as Real Madrid clinched a historic Champions League triumph in his home city of Cardiff.

"My age is just a number", Ronaldo said.

A few days earlier, they also got hold of the La Liga title, finishing three points above rivals Barcelona, meaning the Duodecima celebrations had to be big and nearly never-ending. Sergio Ramos and Marcelo offered the cup to the supporters and the president of the region, Cristina Cifuente, wore the Real Madrid t-shirt.

For the eighth time in their history, Juventus were left contemplating a loss on the biggest stage of all.

As fans celebrating on the streets of Cardiff proudly sang "Somos los reyes de Europa (We are the kings of Europe)", a traditional team chant, it was only fitting that one of the dignitaries congratulating players in the changing rooms was Spain's former King Juan Carlos.

Zinedine Zidane led his team to the club's first La Liga and Champions League double since 1958 after they saw off the threat of Barcelona to earn the Spanish title too, but they will not rest on their laurels. I like to play freer, when we play 4-4-2, I like it more. He scored six goals in his last nine games and kept on impressive in all the cameos he got for Real Madrid but despite that Gareth Bale, Alvaro Morata and Marco Asensio got the nod ahead of him on the Real Bench. It's why you're a footballer, it's the reason I came here.

"I'm not going to confirm I'll stay here all my life". The same applies to Andrea Barzagli, who will still be with us for at last another year.

What a transformation from the opening 45 minutes, when Juventus took the game to Madrid, attacking with conviction and scoring a goal worthy of winning the Champions League, let alone merely equalising in a final.

Zidane's sensational strike as a player in the 2002 final was greeted with the loudest cheer as all of Real's goals from their 11 previous final wins were played before kick-off.
