It almost slipped away, but Real Madrid have won ‘La Decima’. Down 0-1 against Atletico Madrid as extra time was added, Sergio Ramos kept Real alive with a miraculous goal at the 93 minute mark. After regaining their composure, Madrid took the lead thanks to a goal from Gareth Bale at 110′. But they didn’t stop there: Marcelo and Ronaldo chipped in goals before it was all over, resulting in a 4-1 Real Madrid win for their 10th European title. This caps off a long road to redemption for the storied club, who appeared in their first Champions League finals since a win in 2002. Now, over a decade and a billion dollars later, they’re back on top. Be sure to catch the cleats worn for all four of Real’s historic goals after the break.
