Real Madrid to face Juventus in the UEFA Champions League final

This is the triumph of a great squad, as Zidane said in press conference after getting the ticket at Vicente Calderón stadium, but we should give all the credit to the coach, Zinedine Zidane. "It's been a very long road and it hasn't been easy".

Next up for Real is a tough home fixture against Sevilla, where they will be looking to extract revenge after Jorge Sampaoli's men won 2-1 back in January. We need a little bit of patience with the managers, we need to keep all of our better players.

Atletico Madrid, ahead through Saul Niguez's header on 12 minutes doubled the lead with Antoine Griezmann's penalty just four minutes later.

Madrid, meanwhile, will take the defence of the trophy right to the final game after beating Atletico Madrid 4-2 across the two legs of their last-four encounter.

"They started strongly but eventually we were able to find our game", Zidane said.

Since then Las Palmas have won just one game and suffered defeats to sides such as Sporting Gijon and Leganes, while conceding five goals against both Atletico Madrid and Athletic Club Bilbao.

With over 120 appearances to his name in the Champions League Iniesta has been apart of incredible victories where has has set up countless goals, whilst managing to score a few for himself along the way.

The Madrid derby tie was eventually settled on 42 minutes played, with a close range goal from Isco.

"I am improving in all aspects (as a coach), but that doesn't mean anything", Zidane said.

Three games over the next eight days will determine if Madrid can end Barcelona's dominance of La Liga.

"Those first 20, 25 minutes will be in the history of the club."The atmosphere was one of those magical moments in the Calderon that will live in people's memories forever".

"We'll go there with everything we've got and we'll fight to produce a good performance to finish the season strongly".

Zinedine Zidane's side can become the first team to retain the Champions League title when they face his former club Juventus in the final in Cardiff on June 3.

Carvalho played for Madrid between 2010 and 2013, and has since moved to Chinese side Shanghai SIPG after more than 90 games with AS Monaco.

Before the game, Atletico fans displayed huge banners that read, "proud not to be like you", a response to Madrid's message before the first leg.
