Real Madrid lifts 11th Champions League trophy
Real Madrid crushed its cross-city rival, Atletico Madrid, in a 5-3 penalty shootout in Milan, Italy, on Saturday night, winning the Champions League title for the record 11th time.
The match ended in a 1-1 draw between the two teams, following the 120 minute-long field play, which resulted in a penalty shootout. Cristiano Ronaldo’s decisive spot kick during the penalties gave Real Madrid its victory. But Atletico’s striker Juanfran missed his team’s fourth kick.
In the fifteenth minute of the game, Sergio Ramos put Real Madrid in front with a goal.
Real Madrid was penalised for Pepe’s foul on Atletico’s Fernando Torres in the second half of the match. However, Atletico striker Antoine Griezmann missed the chance to tie the score, as he missed the penalty kick.
The tie locking goal was struck by Yannick Carrasco, 79 minutes into the game, and took the match to overtime.
The game went into a penalty shootout as the thirty minutes of overtime was not sufficient for a goal.
In the shootout, Real’s Vazquez, Marcelo and Gareth Bale hit the spot for Real. Penalties by Atletico’s Griezmann, Gabi and Niguez matched the score, 3-3.
“I knew I was going to score the winning penalty. I was confident. I asked coach Zidane to let me take the last penalty,” stated Ronaldo, who won his third UEFA title.
This was the second game in which the two rivals from Madrid faced off in a Champions League Final.
The first match took place in 2014, when Real Madrid defeated Atletico 4–1 in overtime.
It’s been five months since Zinedine Zidane has been appointed as Real Madrid’s manager, making him the seventh man in history to win the Champions League as player and coach.
“I am very happy for everything we’ve achieved together. It’s not easy at all. We’ve really worked hard, fought it out,” Zidane said after the game.
“When you have players of this calibre, with this talent, you can achieve something big like we have tonight.”

Football, hugely popular in Turkey, was brought there in the second half of the 19th century when English tobacco and cotton traders visited the main harbour towns of the Ottoman Empire.
In the beginning they played football with each other, and later taught the game to their Turkish neighbours.The first football match on Turkish grounds was played in Salonika in 1875. After that, football was played in Istanbul and İzmir. But during this time, football was only played between English and Greek people. This was also the case in the first Turkish league, named the Istanbul Football League.But some young Turkish men, who loved this game at once, began to play football in open fields without observing any rules.
These young players formed the first Turkish team, playing their first match on 26 October, 1901, against a Greek team. Then the club Beşiktas, founded in 1903, became the first Turkish club to enter the Istanbul League.
When the clubs Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray also entered this league, the real period of Turkish football began.
A very strong love for football widened to the whole nation. After this period football in Turkey started to develop very fast and treating football like a “national matter” continued until now.
Turkey has a big potential in footbal. There are 4,956 football clubs organized in Turkey, and a registered 4,775 professional and 136,823 amateur players with 233 women. 796 male and 20 female football referees are licensed by the TFF.
