Atletico de Madrid started stronger, more determined & very intensely to put Real Madrid totally on the back foot. Atletico goalkeeper Oblak did an early save to keep the spirits high for his team & they all reacted with plenty of goal chances. The first came in the 12th min through a SAUL header, while was followed in the 16th min by a second from a penalty that GRIEZMANN converted.

It seemed the dream start for Atletico de Madrid but they began to concentrate more on "rough stuff tactics" & forgot about Football. Real Madrid on the other hand withstood the storm & regained their Football composure.

A piece of magic by Benzema, taking & neutralizing 3 defenders, found ISCO who scored Real Madrid´s only goal in the 42th min. A bucket of cold water as things got uphill for the home side.

The 2º half saw chances to both teams with an Atletico de Madrid opportunity failed by Gameiro, after two superb Kaylor Navas saves, that could have brough back into the match At. Madrid. But overall At.Madrid fizzed out while Real Madrid took control & managed the match to their advantage until the clock ran out. Experience & overall talent perhaps the main factor in this phase of the game.

Overall, Real Madrid was the better Club in the semi-final two match tie & deserve their ticket for the Cardiff final. The Spanish Football Club has the opportunity to make Champions League History if they can beat Juventus & get back-to-back titles.
