Real Madrid won their eleventh European Cup after a penalty shoot-out win over cross-city rivals Atletico.

The two clubs from the Spanish capital couldn’t be separated after 120 minutes of action at San Siro, but Cristiano Ronaldo won it from the spot

Sergio Ramos had given Real Madrid the lead after just 15 minutes, with the Bernabeu club far the stronger side during the first half.

But Diego Simeone’s introduction of Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco at half-time changed the game.

The Belgian winger scored the equaliser with eleven minutes to go, but it would have been the winner had Antoine Griezmann not slammed a penalty against the crossbar earlier.

Both sides had chances in a tired period extra time but neither could land the killer blow, taking us to penalties.

Juanfran was to be the heartbroken man, rolling his spot-kick against the post and setting up Ronaldo to seal his third Champions League win.
