All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Atletico Madrid:

It was a war. Real Madrid did well in the first half controlling the tempo, but after the break, Atletico kept growing in stature and looked the more dangerous of the two sides. Both teams were battered and bruised as the game approached its end. Atletico barely looking the fitter of the two sides and eventually, a penalty shootout seemed inevitable...

Earlier in the game, it was Sergio Ramos who gave Madrid the lead. His slight touch from a Bale header was enough to beat Jan Oblak early in the first half, and Madrid seemed well on their way. And the performance was excellent as well. The Merengues moved the ball quickly and efficiently and when they didn't have it, they made sure that Atletico did nothing meaningful.

As the second half approached Real Madrid were clearly in control. However, Atletico aren't a team to take lightly and they started the second half brightly attacking Madrid again and again. Eventually, the pressure got to Madrid and a Pepe tackle in the box led to a penalty for Antoine Grizemann. Quite shockingly, the Frenchman clattered his shot off the cross bar and Madrid survived.

Still, Madrid remained in danger, as Atletico Madrid continued their onslaught. An apparent muscle injury to Dani Carvajal meant Danilo had to come on and the Brazilian, who has struggled all season, had a torrid time marking second half substitute Yannick Carassco, though he was good going forward...

And it would be Carrasco who brought Atletico back into the game late. A close range finish from a Juanfran cross was enough late in the game and suddenly Madrid looked in grave danger of falling to their seemingly fresher and fitter city rivals.

Time ticked by and eventually we were in extra time. And that's when fitness issues started to become a real hinderance. Filipe Luis and Koke for Atletico, Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo for Madrid. It seemed everyone had a cramp or muscle injury at any time. It also became clear that both sides were ready for penalties. And they were.

A series of makes from both sides left both keepers bewildered as the pressure kept mounting. Soon it was 4-3 and Juanfran stepped up. The veteran right back could only manage to hit he post and soon the stage was set for Cristiano Ronaldo to net the match winner. Who else really? And that he did, his penalty hit the back of the net as Oblak guessed wrong. And there it was... After a season seemingly filled with so much turmoil, Madrid have ended up as European champions again.

Two times in the last three years now Real Madrid has tasted glory in Europe and for Zidane to do so in his first season? Astonishing.
