Real Madrid Win UEFA Champions League

Real Madrid came from 1-0 deficit on Saturday night to defeat fellow La Liga rivals, Atletico Madrid 4-1 in the final of 2014 UEFA Champions League played in Portugal.
The match, which entered an extra time saw Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a spot kick to put an icing on the cake as he ends a successful season in his native country.
Real won the Champions League for the tenth time thanks to extra time goals from Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo as they came from behind in dramatic circumstances to beat Atletico in Lisbon.
Atletico seemed set for their first ever European crown as they led deep into stoppage time thanks to Diego Godin’s first-half header, but Sergio Ramos took the game into extra time with a towering header in the 93rd minute.
And for the second time this season having already scored the winner to hand Real the Copa del Rey against Barcelona last month, Bale scored the crucial goal when he headed into an empty net after Thibaut Courtois had parried Angel di Maria’s effort.
With Atletico committed to finding an equaliser, Real were able to counter-attack at will and Marcelo killed the game off when his low shot had too much power for Courtois before Ronaldo sealed his return to Lisbon with a fourth from the penalty spot.
