Real Madrid reach Champions League Final Despite Defeat by Atletico

  May 17, 2017

The whistle goes! Real Madrid have reached their 15th European Cup final! They’ll play Juventus in Cardiff, where they’ll have a chance to become the first team to defend the trophy in the Champions League era! They jig and dance in glee. Deservedly so: they were the better team over the two legs. But in many respects tonight is about the vanquished Atletico, who bravely hauled themselves back into this tie. For a while, an astonishing comeback looked to be on. But then Godin, Savic and Gimenez let Benzema slip away, Isco scored a vital away goal, and the tie was as good as over. The rain pelts down, in and around Atletico hearts, but at least they can say they won the last-ever European match at the Vicente Calderon. Which has got to mean something. Right?
