Real Madrid have cemented their place in the final of the Champions League after going past Atletico Madrid in the semi-final on Wednesday night.

Real Madrid lost 2-1 to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night but won 4-2 on aggregate to progress to the final of the Champions League.

Saul Niguez and Antoine Griezmann scored early to give Atletico a two-goal lead and close to overturning the first leg deficit, but Isco scored just before the half time break after some good work by Karim Benzema as Real reached the final once again.

Real Madrid will hope they can successfully defend their title when they face Juventus in the Cardiff final later this month.
