My thoughts go towards the Juventus who are being forced to stick around on the pitch and watch the Real Madrid players celebrate while they wait to collect runners-up medals.

Madrid will lift the trophy in their white strip. Always thought lifting the cup in the shirt you won the game in makes that particular strip more iconic (Juventus in 1996 for example), but each to their own.
it was just too much for Juventus. In fact, the weight of history was too much for the famous old Italian team. This was their seventh defeat at this stage; they have won this trophy just twice.
But Real Madrid are the team who appropriated the old European Cup at its outset. Now they are dominating the modern era. This was their 12th trophy of all time. But never before in the modern era of the Champions League has the trophy been defended. It has now.
Cristiano Ronaldo, at 32, is still demanding centre stage. He won an FA Cup final at this stadium in 2004 as a callow youth against Millwall. It was his first ever trophy. On Saturday night he secured his 20th.

The opposition was somewhat more glamorous here, the prize more treasured but the performance remained the same. He did what he does, which is to lead from the front and ensure that, if silverware is at stake, he is the man left holding it at the end.
