Champions League final: Why we lost to Real Madrid - Allegri

Cristiano Ronaldo netted twice as Zinedine Zidane's side overcame Juventus 4-1 on Saturday

The 39-year-old Buffon would be a hugely popular victor if he finally fulfilled his Champions League dream.

Back home at the Santiago Bernabeu, Ronaldo took centre stage as he sung about his own candidacy for the Ballon d'Or, which he claimed ahead of Barcelona foe and five-time victor Lionel Messi a year ago.

Ronaldo also became the first player in history to score in 3 Champions League finals and scoring his 600th career goal in the process.

In truth, he's likely keen on staying at the Bernabeu where he continues to regularly collect trophies, but with just nine goals and five assists in 27 appearances this past season, he'll need to do more moving forward for Zinedine Zidane's side.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has branded his side "deserving winners" after they defeated Juventus 4-1 to retain the Champions League crown.

And there might be more celebrations after the off-season break when Madrid face Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup in August, before taking on bitter rivals Barca in the two-legged Supercopa de Espana.

Trump Son-in-Law Included in Probe into Russian Meddling in US Elections
The President has stressed he was not under investigation, and has taken to Twitter to dismiss the entire investigation as a hoax. A close Trump associate said this week the president was considering firing Mueller, although the White House later denied it.

"We know all about pressure at Real Madrid", Zidane said. "He knows that we are a very good team and that is why we proved it in the second half". They nearly went ahead on six minutes as Miralem Pjanic's 20-yard effort brought an excellent flying save from Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas. The goalkeeper blocked a header and strike from Gonzalo Higuain, and produced a one-handed save when Miralem Pjanic picked a gap through a crowd of defenders.

It was the culmination of a counterattack of breathtaking speed launched by Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

"Buffon will still be goalie next season and Barzagli with be with us for another year".

His first goal at the Principality Stadium to put Real ahead in the 20th minute against Juve illustrated that perfectly as he had the wit to lay the ball off to Dani Carvajal on his right and then the smartness to hold, wait for the cut-back pass and then use his technique to bury the ball in the bottom corner.

This time, Zidane was a spectator on the Madrid sideline. It owed much to Madrid controlling midfield, largely thanks to Modric, who set up Ronaldo's second.

Substitute Juan Cuadrado's late dismissal, picking up a second yellow card for a late foul on Ramos (who arguably embellished the contact) was the final ounce of fight from a beaten Juve side. And to compile their misery, Asensio beat Buffon again as the 39-year-old goalkeeper missed out on a first European title. "They showed their class and the attitude needed to play in this kind of game".
