Real Madrid become first team to win back-to-back Champions League finals

Real Madrid  become first team to win back-to-back Champions League finals after lifting Champions League trophy against Juventus of Italy on Saturday, June 3, 2017.

Zinedine Zidane‘s side proved too powerful for Juventus, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring twice and Casemiro adding another as they dispatched the Italian champions 4-1.

Mario Mandzukic might have scored the goal of the match to draw Juve level before the break, but they were largely second best throughout at the Millennium Stadium and finished with 10 men as Juan Cuadrado was dismissed in the closing stages for clashing with Sergio Ramos. As the match moved into stoppage time, Sergio Asensio added a fourth to the Spaniards’ tally.

The last time any team won successive European Cups was Arrigo Sacchi‘s AC Milan, who won the competition in 1989 and 1990.
