UEFA Champions League

Result: Atletico Madrid 2-1 Real Madrid (2-4 on aggregate)

Date: 10 May 2017

Venue: Vicente Calderon

Real Madrid's defence of their UEFA Champions League title continues, after they claimed a 4-2 aggregate win over Ateltico Madrid to progress to the final in Cardiff.

Los Blancos came into the clash with a healthy lead, after Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick secured a 3-0 win in the first leg.

Atletico broke the deadlock in the 12th minute as Saul Niguez rose well to head home Koke's corner into the back of the net.

The hosts were then awarded a penalty four minutes later when Sergio Ramos brought down Fernando Torres. Antoine Griezmann stepped up and converted the spot-kick, 2-0.

Zinedine Zidane's charges were finding it tough to break down the Atletico defence for most of the opening half.

However, Los Blancos eventually reduced the deficit in the 42nd minute, as Isco poked home from close range after Toni Kroos' shot was saved by Jan Oblak.

The score remained 2-1 to the home side at the halftime break.

Diego Simeon opted for a change 10 minutes into the second half, as Torres made way for Ghana star Thomas Partey.

Keylor Navas came to Real's rescue in the 64th minute, as he produced a superb double save to deny Yannick Carrasco and Kevin Gameiro in quick succession.

Zidane opted for a double change after 76 minutes as Marcos Asensio and Lucas Vazquez replaced Benzema and Casemiro.

The home side pushed for more goals in the closing stages but the Real defence managed to withstand the pressure.

Despite suffering a 2-1 defeat on the night, Real advance to the final after winning the tie 4-2 on aggregate and will now face Juventus.

And that cat Isco...... He's actually quite nice that kid. Casameiro, the dirty hard man in that midfield is key to Madrid's success. Danillo goes unnoticed killing forages into Madrid's half superbly. Dr Luka Modric, genius. Marcelo, evergreen..... Easily the world's best left-back. Sergio Ramos, Commander-In -Chief.... Best center-back in the world (or will that only be proved in the final against the best defenders in the world..?). Toni Kroos.... Mr Number-Dont-Lie, almost perfect. Atleti's Carasco is super nice..... Very clever and skillful. Gabi and Godin cost them. Griezy never shows up in the big games and was lucky he didn't have his spot kick saved by a brilliant Navas on the night. Torres flopped after Ronaldo told him he's woth 100 x more than him... That just killed El-Nino who I really like:-( ......... It's going to be a wonderful night of football in Cardiff..... Maybe not exciting but certainly intriguing and enthralling..... Can't wait for the 27 May 2017-Save the date :-)

Benzema skinning players on the touch line in build up to Isco's goal was magical,Zizou has a great team in his hands.

There is one thing that this season's UEFA CL proved. It has proved that: Buffon is the best goalie ever in the history of the game. Alves and Marcelo are respectively the best right and left back in the world currently.

CR7 will molest Juve and then be tested for substance abuse, when actually he should be tested for abusing defenders and goalkeepers.
