Cristiano Ronaldo (CR7) fired home the winning penalty as Real Madrid won Europe’s biggest prize for the 11th time in its history.
Sergio Ramos’ controversial finish put Zinedine Zidane’s side ahead before Atletico striker Antoine Griezmann missed a penalty.
However, substitute Yannick Carrasco sent the Champions League final into extra-time with a close-range finish.
So yet again .. Real Madrid got a record-extending 11th European title and left Atletico with a bitter third loss in the continent’s biggest game. In its two previous finals, Atletico gave up last-minute equalizing goals.
“I don’t believe in injustices,” Atletico coach Diego Simeone said in Spanish. “In football, the team that wins deserves to win. They were better during the shootout.”
Simeone said he will consider his future at Atletico, where the combative Argentine has coached for five years.
