Dominant Real creates Champions League history

"We have achieved a historic feat", Madrid left back Marcelo said.

'But at the same time we know that next year is going to be much more difficult and we will have to work harder.

The superstar scored twice in the 4-1 win over Juventus to hand Real back-to-back titles in Europe. "This is one of the most important years for me, I hope there will be more like this in the future". I'm very happy and we shall enjoy it.

The score was at 1-1 after Ronaldo had netted against the run of play and Mario Mandzukic had equalised but Juventus were creating the better chances and Gianluigi Buffon's net had otherwise gone untroubled.

It was a different story after the break, however, and though Juve's drilled defence initially kept Real at arm's length, it was undone by a two-goal salvo - one each from Casemiro and Ronaldo - before Asensio finished things up. 15 years after scoring the victor for Real in Glasgow, Zidane as coach came to Cardiff and led the Spanish champions to their third European Cup victory in the last four years.

Zidane's joy was his former club Juve's despair, Massimiliano Allegri's side crashing to a fifth successive defeat in Champions League finals and seventh in total, extending their own desperately unwanted record.

There are some players who have probably played their last game for the club like Fabio Coentrao, who has barely featured this season and is likely to leave as they seek a deal for Atletico Madrid defender Theo Hernandez, with reports in Spain suggesting he has already passed his Madrid medical.

"I think the project is well laid out", Madrid president Florentino Perez said. The world player of the year knocked the ball across to Dani Carvajal on the right flank before drifting into the penalty area to receive it back and beat Buffon.
