Real Madrid beat Atletico to advance to 2017 UEFA Champions League final

Real Madrid beat Atletico to advance to 2017 UEFA Champions League final

It is also more heartbreak for Atletico, who have lost to Real in the final twice in the past few seasons, and have now been handed another exit by their Madrid rivals.

Looking ahead to the Cardiff final, the Frenchman quickly squashed ideas that his side are favourites to win a 12th European Cup/Champions League title.

Although 18-year-old Kylian Mbappe, who is playing his debut season, struck a consolidated goal for Monaco in the 69th minute, it was not just enough to emerge victorious against Juventus.

"Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus - there's a lot of money that's come into the English game, but all the English teams seem to be in a transition".

This gesture did not go down well with Fernando Torres who clashed with the Portuguese superstar seconds after the gesture. We need a little bit of patience with the managers, we need to keep all of our better players.

Atletico dominated the entire first half and looked desperate and hungry for the third goal.

"I just feel like the English teams are in transition all the time", McManaman argued.

"The first thing would be to clone some of our players", he said.

"I'm happy and proud to have shown what we are all about".

Real boss Zinedine Zidane insisted last week that Navas would not be affected by rumours linking the club with a move for De Gea.

Whenever businesses are hit with a nasty new levy, there is a predictable response: we'll pass it on to customers. At the time of writing, Macquarie, the other major bank affected by the new tax, had yet to release a statement.


"I did not think he could do it", Zidane said with a smile. "He could not tell me either".

Benzema wriggled out of a seemingly impossible situation surrounded by three Atletico defenders and crossed for Toni Kroos, whose initial effort was blocked by Oblak before Isco shot home the rebound. The French striker was surrounded by three Atletico defenders at the byline, but somehow found a way past all of them with a pair of quick touches. It should not have happened. We learn from this and will improve from it.

The midfielder brought a new energy as Real saw the game slipping from their hands.

A place in the Champions League is now awarded to the victor of Europe's second-tier competition, but they would normally only enter the tournament at the play-off stage unless the victor of the Champions League also qualified directly for the group stages through their domestic league placing. "When he is inspired he can make the difference in a world class way".
