Real Madrid score back-to-back goals to take two-goal lead in Champions League final


With less than half of an hour to go in the Champions League final, Real Madrid have a two-goal lead! After Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic traded brilliant first half goals, Casemiro has thrust Los Blanco back into the lead in the 62nd minute thanks to a massive deflection.

Just a minute later and Ronaldo had bagged his brace after racing to the near-post and flicking a great cross by Luka Modric over Gigi Buffon and into the net. It’s a huge swing in momentum after Juventus controlled most of the first half and Real Madrid are on their way to the European cup once again!
