PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

REAL MADRID ARE CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE YET AGAIN. WHAT A TEAM. WHAT A MANAGER. WHAT A CHAMPION THEY HAVE IN CRISTIANO RONALDO. 

WHAT A SPELLBINDER OF A CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL - AN OPEN END-TO-END FIRST HALF FOLLOWED BY A STUNNING DISPLAY OF TACTICAL ASTUTENESS FROM ZIDANE IN THE SECOND FORTY FIVE

DESERVED WINNERS - THEY ARE THE FIRST TEAM SINCE THE GREAT ARRIGO SACCHI'S AC MILAN TO RETAIN THE PREMIERE CROWN IN CLUB FOOTBALL. WHAT AN ACHIEVEMENT. HISTORY IS THEIRS. 

CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL FOR GIANLUIGI BUFFON, THOUGH, HIS FACE - AS EVER - SHOWS EVERY EMOTION RUNNING THROUGH HIM AND ITS HEARTBREAKING. 

LETS LEAVE YOU THOUGH WITH HAPPINESS - REAL MADRID ARE CHAMPIONS OF SPAIN, AND OF EUROPE AND DESERVED CHAMPIONS AT THAT. 

IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE BRINGING THIS MATCH TO YOU. THANK YOU FOR THE MAILS AND THE COMPANY.

ANIRUDH MENON SIGNING OUT...

TOODLE-OOO
...
93' Bale tries one from thiry yards - why not - but it's easily blocked. Alves then ambles forward - even he looks like dejected - but Madrid clear with utmost ease
...
92' Madrid are walking this - Morata tries an ambitious shot from nowhere and gets absolutely hollered at by his teammates. You lot have already won, calmaaaa!
...
Marcelo recovers that blocked freekick, whisks past Mario Lemina like the latter doesn't exist and smacks in a lovely pass that Marco Asensio smashes in with no hesitation. Lovely goal. 

You can't but feel heartbroken at seeing Buffon's face, though
...
90' GOOOOOOALLLLL!!! ASENSIO!!!!!
...
89' The excellent Modric does ever so well to draw a  foul off Alves - Ronaldo sends it into the wall, but it doesn't matter....
...
88' Alvaro Morata comes on for Toni Kroos - could this be the Spaniard's last game for Los Blancos? More pertinently, it now gives Madrid a target to aim for when hacking clear. 
...
87' Real Madrid are sitting deep now, smartly so, and Juventus simply can't find a way through - Alves tries to get onto the end of a Khedira ball, but Navas is out quickly to smother
...
85' Bonucci lifts a superb ball into the box but Mandzukic's header to Higuain is too meek to reach the Argentine. Ten Men Juventus are still trying valiantly - though Higuain's wild hack is no way to go about doing it
...
83' Sergio Ramos flies into a superb tackle on Juan Cuadrado and then shows his ugly side by diving after a mere touch from the Colombian. The ref inexplicably shows him a yellow - that's his second - and he's off. Disgusting from Ramos, though
...
81' Juve move forward and Dani Alves sends in a lovely little freekick that Alex Sandro guides a whisker away from the post. Zidane meanwhile gives young Marco Asensio his first taste of a big, big, final as Isco gets taken off to a standing ovation. The dancing Spaniard played a brilliant hand. 
...
80' On the pitch, meanwhile. Ronaldo races in beyond Chiellini and tries to set up Bale but Bonucci gets a leg in.
...
79' There's news filtering in from Turin that an absolute horror has unfolded in Turin at the screening where there were 60,000 in attendance at the San Carlo square and a sudden stampede has just taken place. Will keep you up to date on what's happening. 
...
77' Karim Benzema is taken off of after a typically selfless performance and local hero Gareth Bale trots off. Allegri's mental fragility is there for all to show as Paulo Dybala (the only one in black and white with the streak of magic that could have saved them) is taken for Mario Lemina.
...
76' Isco Isco-s his way past Dani Alves and the Brazilian is pulled up for a tug on the dancing Spaniard. 
...
75' Modric, Ronaldo, Isco, Kroos, Benzema.... passes are exchanged with swift certainty before the Frenchman's final is cut out by Bonucci. Marcelo's follow-up is wild and sails into Cardiff city central. 
...
73' OW OW OW! RONALDO! Benzema toys with Alves, sits him down, and lays the ball off to Marcelo. The left-backs pass into the box, though, is way too strong for anyone and it careens off Ronaldo's shins and into row Z
...
71' Ronaldo is loving this at the moment - he starts accelerating from the half-way line and Juan Cuadrado pulls him down. That's a yellow for the Colombian
...
70' Juventus move forward - but it all ends with a wild Alex Sandro lunge on Raphael Varane. That's a yellow. Meanwhile, Pjanic is taken off for Marchisio
...
69' Ronaldo tries to turn provider - but his cross is awry and it's just a goalkick
...
67' Real Madrid suddenly look utterly in command. That's what a two-goal cushion does for you. Zinedine Zidane has thoroughly outsmarted Allegri in the second half till now. Brilliant from the Madrid boss.
...
65' Miralem Pjanic goes into the book for a frustrated challenge on Ramos. Allegri meanwhile heaves the kitchen sink on to his shoulders and throws on Juan Cuadrado for Andrea Barzagli.
...
CRISTIANO RONALDO! CRISTIANO RONALDO! CRISTIANO RONALDO! The little magician Luka Modric whipped a ball past Sandro and into the box where the King had arrived, ghosting past any markers, and smashed an unstoppable shot beyond Buffon. Sublime goal 
...
64' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!!!! SIIIIIIIIIIIII!!! RONALDOOOOOOOOO!! 
...
63' Mandzukic tries to pick out Higuain in behind the Real Madrid defence, but the Argentine has waddled his way offside. 
...
Casemiro. No seriously, Casemiro. Kroos' initial shot is blocked off by Bonucci, but the Brazilian defensive midfielder has an absolute whack from nigh-on forty yards... it takes a deflection of Khedira's calves and it's beyond Buffon.
...
61' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALLL!!!! CASEMIRO! WOOOOOOOF!
...
60' Real Madrid continue employing the squeeze on Juve and the Bianconeri can barely get out of their own half. 
...
59' Isco let's fly from distance - and why not - but his shot lacks in direction what it had in power and intent. 
...
58' OH MY!!!! Some superb passing opens up space for Marcelo who curls in a delightful little ball thatt evades the twin fortresses of Bonucci and Chiellini but bounces just a couple of inches over Ronaldo's outstretched boot.  
...
57' Madrid are squeezing Juve further and further into their own defensive third. More intricate passing precedes a burst of pace by Varane, but the Frenchman is cut out by an alert Chiellini.  
...
56' Juve move forward, but they lack the conviction they had shown in the first period and Dani Alves' ball swings out of play! Higuain then goes on to lose the ball with another horrendous first touch. 
...
55' Higuain once again loses the ball a the edge of the box and Real Madrid counter at pace through Toni Kroos. He feeds the ball to Isco who dances around Barzagli, but his return to the German is blocked off by Khedira. Marcelo then hammers a follow-up well wide of goal
...
53' What a wonderful little passage of play. Isco, Carvajal and Marcelo all have nice parts to play as Luka Modic is set up for a left-foot shot that hammers into the grateful Buffon's gloves. 
...
52' Toni Kroos goes into the book for a foul on his fellow German Sami Khedira - truth be told, it looked harmless. Zidane's bald pate is probably hot enough to boil water at the moment. No Glasgow kisses now, Zizou, calma!
...
51' Boy that Dybala has some quick feet - he shuffles past two purple shirts like it's nothing - but ref calls play back for a foul suffered by Dani Alves. He got stood on by Marcelo and that looked painful! 
...
50' Juventus do the passing about-bit for a while as they try to draw the sting out of Real Madrid's early attacking endeavour. The ball is then lost by Higuain with a pass straight to Isco.
...
49' The corner amounts to nothing, but Bonucci's been clattered into, by the ball - which smacked him on the nose - and he looks a touch dizzy... hopefully, it's not a serious concussion. 
...
48' Things are definitely not calm now. Isco sneaks in behind Barzagli after a second Marcelo ball in behind the Juve right back - but the veteran does superbly to recover and limit it to a corner. 
...
47' Things are calm. For now.
