Real Madrid and Juventus were deadlocked in the UEFA Champions League Final on Saturday at the National Stadium of Wales in Cardiff when Casemiro struck in the 60th minute.
The defensive midfielder received the ball in the attacking half and took a rip from 30 yards out. The ball deflected off a defender shortly after leaving Casemiro’s foot and found its way past Juventus goalie Gianluigi Buffon to give Real Madrid a one-goal lead.
Four minutes later, Cristiano Ronaldo netted his second goal of the match to increase Real Madrid’s lead to two.
Ronaldo reached a career milestone with that goal.
Los Blancos were the better side during the second half, and their aggressiveness paid off in a 4-1 victory.
