PHOTO: La Decima hero Gareth Bale with the Champions League trophy
Real Madrid won a tenth European Cup this evening in Lisbon, with Gareth Bale scoring the second of Los Blancos’ four goals against cross-city rivals Atletico Madrid.
Bale, 24, completed a fairy tale year with a goal in the Champions League win, having moved to the Bernabeu for a world record £85m last summer from Premier League side Tottenham, and was pictured lifting the famous trophy after game.
His goal came in the 109th minute of the match, with Real vs Atletico having to go to extra-time after a 1-1 score after ninety minutes. The Welsh winger rose to head home after Angel di Maria’s shot was well saved by Atleti keeper Thibaut Courtois.
