The Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. A cautious first half with Real Madrid leading and the break. An equaliser from Carrasco late on and the teams went in at full time 1-1.

Real Madrid with the first effort at goal in the form of Ronaldo. Ronaldo couldn’t get enough contact on the ball to trouble Oblak in the Atletico goal.

Good attacking pressure from Atletico. A cross from the right wing wins them a corner. Headed away by Real Madrid but Atletico came back at them but couldn’t make more from the attack.

Continuous attacking pressure from Atletico, Real Madrid players began to look tired. The red and white striped won 2 corners back-to-back but couldn’t benefit.

Real Madrid went up the field with a counter attack, Ronaldo on the right wig plays a pass into the box to Isco, he let it run to Gareth Bale whose shot was blocked by determined Atletico defenders.

Half time of extra time came quickly and the teams still level at 1-1.

The second half began with Real Madrid players looking very tired. Modric played a pass out wide to Ronaldo and struggled to continue his run with what looked like leg cramps.

With 10 minutes to go in extra time, Real Madrid worked the ball forward well, although with no real pace. They managed to win a corner but it was easy for Griezmann to head away.

Fernando Torres tried to control the ball on his chest about 35-yards from his own goal, he was deemed to have used his hand by referee Mark Clattenberg. A free kick to Real Madrid with 6 minutes left to play.

A tired strike of the ball hits the wall and goes to safety.

Some good pressure from Real Madrid right at the end of the game. Danilo with a shot but great defending from Atletico sent the ball out for a corner. It came to nothing.
