Ancelotti and Real Madrid still on top of Europe. Perez is already aiming for his sixteenth Champions League

If they call him King Charles, there must be a reason. Ancelotti he knows how to do it: his real Madrid he suffers but holds on, in the second half he passes and in the end he also wins with extreme serenity. For the fifteenth time in their unrivaled history, the merengues they are European champions: beat Borussia Dortmund, 2-0 in the Champions League final at Wembley.

Hey Jude, the old guard is here. Bellingham is among the most anticipated, but disappears for large stretches of the match. I go to the chair galacticos of the new era: 8 on the report card for Thibaut Courtois, who made his debut in this Champions League this evening. But also to the match winner Dani Carvajal it’s at Toni Kroosat the last with the Real shirt and clubs in general.

Ancelotti’s joy. He had taken a nap in the afternoon, the most successful coach ever in the history of Europe’s most prestigious cup. “The key is the history of this club and the quality of the players, I do what I can”, says the Italian coach humbly at the end of the match. He looks to the future Florentino Perez, who has the new Champions League in his sights: “Now we’re aiming for the Sixteenth”, says the president who overtook Santiago Bernabeu in the competition’s roll of honour. Meanwhile, on 14 August there will be an all-Italian challenge: with Gasperini satisfied, the European Super Cup will be Real Madrid-Atalanta.
