Bale enjoys 'dream' Madrid win in Cardiff

04 Juin, 2017, 10:06 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Kroos played as Madrid cruised to a 4-1 win over 10-man Juventus in Cardiff on Saturday, becoming the first team in the Champions League era to retain their title. They also had a very lucrative one.

Ronaldo, who also scored in the 2008 and 2014 finals, swept home in the first half to edge a purple-clad Real Madrid in front. Ronaldo made it three, before Marco Asensio, who replaced Isco, made it 4-1 as Juve lost with an even bigger margin than they did to Barcelona in final of the tournament in 2015.

Not bad for a night's work.

Madrid have been the dominant side in Europe in recent years, but Juventus have done exceptionally well on a smaller budget - and having had to sell their best players.

Juventus and Real Madrid are set to square off in Cardiff for the most coveted prize in European club football today, the UEFA Champions League title.

But Real took over in the second half and Casemiro's long distance strike, which took a huge deflection off Sami Khedira, set the Spaniards on their way to glory.
