"It seems like here we have grown up in Beverly Hills", said Ramos on Tuesday. If Real beat Juventus, they will be first team to defend their title since the tournament was rechristened and the first team since Milan in 1990 to do so.

"The team showed once more why they have been competing at this level for so many years", said Atletico coach Diego Simeone. At the start we let in goals that we didn't want but we knew that it was going to be hard.

Atletico got the goal they needed to get back into the tie 12 minutes in when Koke's outswinging corner was met powerfully by Saul for his fourth Champions League goal of the season.

You see, although it hurts me to say so, I'm hoping Real Madrid get through, but purely for my own selfish reasons.

A close range goal from Isco on the break of halftime was vital in easing Real Madrid into the final 4-2 on aggregate after a blistering start from their rivals, who won 2-1 on the night.

Juve and Real Madrid meet again after the Bianconeri's 3-2 aggregate victory in the 2015 Champions League semi-final. I have full confidence in my players and I am sure we'll do things well. Surrounded by opponents, Karim Benzema swerved brilliantly down the left flank with the ball glued to his foot, just about keeping it in play before cutting back to Toni Kroos. "It's very hard to score against this Juve side", said Zidane. Wrestling in fact did not work - all four of his goals "Real" scored in 35 minutes, and then quietly brought the matter before the final whistle.

He will hold his first media briefing as president at 2:30 p.m. (0530 GMT) on Wednesday after a simple inauguration ceremony. Speaking to supporters on Tuesday night, Mr Moon said he would serve all South Koreans and build "a just, united country".

"I only focus on what we have tomorrow".

Navas had two make two hard consecutive saves in the 66th on a shot by Yannick Carrasco and a header by Kevin Gameiro, and Cristiano Ronaldo had a goal disallowed for offside in the 69th.

While a repeat looks highly unlikely, in any given 90 minutes of football, pretty much anything can happen - as Paris Saint-Germain found out when they strolled into Barcelona 4-0 up from the first leg of their last 16 encounter.

It is their second Champions League final in three years.

Atletico was upset by the banners and provoked Madrid in the run-up to the second leg.

Although Messi's 2016-17 stats top the Portuguese's, we have to remember Zinedine Zidane has been resting Ronaldo on away games this season to keep his star fresh for the title surge this season.
