'Ronaldo Final' will go down as one of Champions League greats

'Ronaldo Final' will go down as one of Champions League greats

Real Madrid are attempting to become the first team since AC Milan (1989, 1990) to win back-to-back European Cup/Champions League trophies.

The strike was Madrid's 500th in the Champions League - Ronaldo's next was the 600th of his career and took him beyond great rival Lionel Messi as top scorer in this season's competition.

Juve had been bidding to complete a Treble of Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League successes and Allegri said they could still reflect on their season with pride.

Ronaldo underscored his status as Europe's most lethal striker with the first and third goals as Real were crowned champions of Europe for a record-extending 12th time.

That moment was historic in itself as Ronaldo became the first player to score in three different finals.

Real, who now have a record 12 European Cup wins, grabbed the lead in the 20th minute through Ronaldo, who slotted the ball low into the corner after a clever cut-back from Dani Carvajal following a classic counter attack. For seven minutes, they played with that sense of objective that comes from winning two Champions Leagues in the past three years, that sense they were born to rule.

Minutes later, Ronaldo put in his second goal of the game to take control of the match.

Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, one from Casemiro and another from Marco Asensio sealed Los Blancos' victory over Juventus in another huge night in Real's illustrious history.

Ronaldo reached 400 goals for Real during the current season as well as 100 in the Champions League.

But their defeat means they have now lost their last five Champions League finals. Defender Casemiro scored the winning goal on the hour mark. Perhaps we ran a bit too hard and didn't make the most of that advantage on the field.

Madrid's supremacy was clear in the second half.

"We knew that Juventus are an unbelievably good defending team". He finally won the Champions League as a Madrid player in 2002, scoring an fantastic volley in the final against Bayer Leverkusen in Glasgow, Scotland.
