Real Madrid won their 11th trophy from Europe’s premier club competition two years after a comeback win against Atletico Madrid in Lisbon, although coach Diego Simeone had assembled a side he had hoped will bring Los Rojiblancos their maiden Champions League title.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane and Atletico counterpart Simeone kept to the script with no real surprises in their line-ups for the Uefa Champions League final at Milan’s San Siro on Saturday.

The game kicked off four minutes late.

90’ -- Once again a Champions League final between the two teams heads into extra time after Atletico equalised with 11 minutes remaining.

79’ -- Half time substitute Yannick Carrasco turned home Juanfran’s cross from close range to send the Atletico fans wild.

47’ -- Antoine Griezmann misses a penalty shot as Atletico Madrid spoil their best chance to level the game against Real Madrid.

Griezmann smashed his effort onto the crossbar, much to the despair of his team’s own supporters packed behind that goal. He is the first player to miss a penalty in the Champions League final since Arjen Robben in 2012.

Fernando Torres won the penalty for Atletico after he was barged over by Pepe soon after the game re-started.

French striker Antoine Griezmann, the scorer of seven goals in the competition so far, leads their attack alongside Fernando Torres -- who knows the San Siro well having played for AC Milan.

They will be supported by a four-man midfield marshalled by Augusto Fernandez and captain Gabi, with Koke and Saul Niguez the wide men.
