Diego Coast held to his with a doublet that balanced the so many of Karim Benzema and Sergio Bouquets, but was Saúl the one who decided with another golazo and after him Koke finished.

And if it is necessary to use the term 'another', is because the one of Largato remained with the first target to frame, and hardly took a minute in reaching it. The forward won the jump to Sergio Bouquets, the career to Raphaël Varane and fusiló almost without angle to Keylor Navas, premièred the marker to the big and putting very of face the clash.

During a lot of minutes were the 'colchoneros' arguing the command of the men of Julen Lopetegui, that little by little went doing with the control and found oil with the answer of Karim Benzema. It had warned Marco Asensio forcing to lucirse to Jan Oblak, but went the French the one who surpassed to the esloveno with a finish of head to centre of Gareth Bleat.

Again they equalised strengths the two Madrilenian groups after the rest, but a penalti of Juanfran was about to to complicate the night. The side tried to clear another sending also with the testa, but what found the spherical was his hand and Sergio Bouquets converted. The distances were minimum and there was a lot for playing .

And with the chronometer running inexorably, everything aimed that the celebrations would be for the edict 'merengue', but again appeared an inspired Diego Coast. The chain of errors in the defence madridista finish with a stab of Ángel Correa in the small area, and his pass hardly had to expect it very planted the ariete to push the leather to the network.

The strengths were increasingly just in Tallin, but the Athletic came of a moral impulse and the Madrid of a hit and this finish noticing. In another failure to forget of the saga, the whites gave a balloon to the rival forward, and the centre, this time of Thomas, connected it Sául with a volley tremenda that did to burst to the fans rojiblanca. It remained every time less and the first triumph in Europe against the rival maximum was about to to arrive.

The one who approached it a bit more was Koke, that answered to one against lethal of the ones of the Cholo Simeone to put earth of byhalf . Two goals in five minutes in the extention that were a losa for the ones of Lopetegui, that neither with a brief rest attained to react. Little rondo the tie and could fall the fifth, but the marker did not move more and the supercampeón is the Athletic of Madrid.
