Thanks to Real Madrid, tonight Spain has won its 17th European Cup, thereby strengthening  the country’s European Cup dominance. With this glorious 17th title, the country enjoys 5 wins over Italy and England on the competition’s over-all scoreboard. In so doing Real Madrid has also strengthened its own position as the European Cup’s dominant force. It is, moreover, the first team to ever successfully defend the title in the UEFA Champions League era which began in the 1992-93 season.

With a stunning 4-1 victory against Italy’s Juventus in the 3 June 2017 Champions League final in Cardiff, Wales, Real Madrid notched its 12th Champions League trophy. Real was pitted against a Juve who has the best defense in Europe, according to the UEFA ranking system, so that the match wasn’t expected to be a cakewalk for the Champion.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Twenty minutes into the game, Cristiano Ronaldo goaled for Real Madrid. On his second goal Ronaldo overtook Leo Messi, FC Barcelona’s forward, as this season’s top scorer, taking his UEFA Champions League record to a total of 105 goals.
