Real Madrid have made their 14th Champions League final following their 1-0 win over Manchester City in the semi-final second leg on Wednesday night at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

They will face their city rivals Atletico in Milan later this month, a repeat of the 2014 final.

Gareth Bale was the hero as his 20th minute shot forced a Fernando own goal that would end up being the lone goal scored by either side after 180 minutes of football. Bale looked to have scored his first Champions League goal of the year but UEFA have ruled it as an own goal.

City never found momentum after captain Vincent Kompany was forced off yet again early on and they had Joe Hart to thank for keeping them in contention right until the end.

The hosts were by far the superior side but were unable to put away a pesky City side that stayed in it until the final whistle.
