Atletico Madrid are 45 minutes away from completing an incredible double and winning their first-ever UEFA Champions League title.

In the 35th minute a corner was cleared to the edge of the box but the ball was hooked straight back in and Diego Godin headed over Iker Casillas who made a real hash of trying to come off his line.

Casillas was caught in no man’s land and the ball soared over his head and just crossed the line before the Real Madrid captain could claw the ball way. Atletico were 1-0 up despite failing to get control of the the ball and Real dominating possession.
