The lottery of the penalties ended with our third final of the continental showpiece. If against PSV, we had passed to the quarter-finals from the penalty spot, destiny wanted that this final was decided on the penalty shootouts and Juanfran, who scored the decisive goal against the Dutch, crashed the fourth one on the post. The fans said a proud farewell to our players, who gave their all in the match.
The match began marked by a goal by Ramos fifteen minutes in, in a play in which an offside was asked for. The second half could not have started better for our team. Torres suffered a penalty by Pepe but Griezmann’s shot crashed on the crossbar in the first minute. Far from affecting Atlético, it was an incentive, the Atlético domain began and a series of plays that brought us closer to the goal. But the tie came in the final stages of the match thanks to Carrasco after a measured cross by Juanfran from the right.
The extra-time began and did so with a powerful Atlético, superior to its rival, accumulating scoring occasions and corner kicks, locking up Real Madrid in their field. In the second half, many of the players from both teams had with physical problems and the final was decided on the penalties with a fatal outcome for our team.
