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?
