Cristiano Ronaldo scored the decisive penalty as Real Madrid won the Champions League for an 11th time with a 5-3 shoot-out win over Atletico Madrid at the San Siro on Saturday.Sergio Ramos gave Real the lead in the 15th minute but, after Antoine Griezmann smashed a penalty against the bar, substitute Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco made it 1-1 with 11 minutes remaining to send the game to extra-time.
Neither team could find a winner in the added 30 minutes as players on both sides tired, but the penalties were perfect until Juanfran hit the post with Atletico's fourth attempt.
It is the 11th time Real have lifted the trophy - four more times than any other club - while Atletico have now been beaten three times in the final.
It was Real who started brighter and could have taken the lead after six minutes when Casemiro poked Bale's free-kick goalwards, but Jan Oblak produced a brilliant point-blank save.
The Atletico keeper was beaten shortly afterwards, though, as Bale flicked on a free-kick and Ramos turned home from close range.
Needing to change the tempo, Diego Simeone introduced Carrasco at the break.
Atletico should have equalised moments after the restart as Pepe clumsily fouled Fernando Torres in the box, but Griezmann fired the penalty against the crossbar.
But Real resisted and should have doubled their lead, with Karim Benzema shooting at Oblak and Bale then having a shot blocked on the line.
Moments later, Atletico levelled as Juanfran volleyed a first-time cross into the middle and Carrasco turned in from six yards out, running to kiss his girlfriend after picking her out in the crowd.
Ronaldo also missed the target with a header from close range in extra-time while Bale had a goal-bound shot blocked.
