On This Day In 2014: Real Madrid Scripted History To Win Their 10th Champions League Title- La Decima

Real Madrid, a club which has had an illustrious history, scripted another chapter in their fairytale when they lifted their 10th UEFA Champions League title on May 24, 2014. The final took place in Lisbon, the home of Cristiano Ronaldo. And Real Madrid made sure that they leave Cristiano’s home with the most prestigious trophy in club football.

The 2014 UEFA Champions League final was a major milestone in world football. The game gave away certain tags and announced Real Madrid’s era of domination in European football. Mr. 92:48, the current captain of the Los Blancos, Sergio Ramos earned himself a tag of being the late finisher for the Men in Whites through this game.

Today, we take a look at one of the most interesting finals in the history of the UEFA Champions League, the 2014 game between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid Received An Early Shocker Of A Goal

The final in Lisbon was set to be an all-Spanish final. To add the cherry on the cake, it was the Madrid derby that was set to entertain the Portugal crowd and leave their hearts on the pitch in Lisbon. The two Spanish rivals, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, under the leadership of Diego Simeone and Carlo Ancelotti, walked into the Estádio da Luz stadium amid the 65000 spectators ready to witness 22 men spill their blood and flesh onto the pitch.

The only aspect that separated the two sides, was the illustrious history mentioned earlier. Real Madrid had already won nine Champions League titles coming into the final. Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, were chasing their first-ever title. Although Real had a history with them, Atletico was fuelled with passion.

The same passion was visible enough as the referee blew the first whistle on an auspicious night. Atletico fought and fought well with the Los Blancos and exerted tremendous pressure on set pieces and counter-attacks. The pressure finally paid off in the 36th minute as Diego Godin lobbed the ball over Iker Casillas, the most veteran hero of the Los Blancos squad.

This just goes on to show the amount of pressure involved in such high-profile games. However, the lads on the pitch were men, not boys. And for men, defeat isn’t a possibility until they shed their last ounce of blood in a battle. Same was with Real Madrid. After all, coming into the final, they had avenged a famous defeat against Bayern Munich and depicted that they were ready to become the champions of Europe.

Real Madrid Kept Attacking And Fortune Favoured Them Just When Everyone Thought It Wasn’t Meant To

Going into the second half, Real Madrid knew that from hereon, they have nothing to lose. This is when experience comes into play. Manager Carlo Ancelotti made a couple of attacking substitutions on the half-time mark as Fabio Contreao was replaced with Marcelo on the left-back position and Sami Khedira made way for Isco, the attacking midfielder. Real kept pushing men forward in search of an equalizer but Atletico’s defence was way too resilient.

It was in the 3rd minute of the stoppage time, that witnessed Sergio Ramos pen down his name in the history books of the Spanish giants. The Los Blancos earned a corner and Luka Modric delivered an inch-perfect ball only to see Sergio Ramos, the leader, rise above everybody to slaught the ball past Thibaut Courtois and bring his team back into the game.

There are certain moments in a match that completely change the tide of the game. In the 2014 final, it was at 92:48 that Atletico Madrid knew that they have slipped the game from their hands and it was visible not only among players but also on Diego Simeone, a manager who seldom seems out of place in any game.

Cristiano Ronaldo Sealed Off The Victory In His Country For His Team

As Ramos rose to the occasion, the entire stadium went into a frenzy. Real Madrid smelled victory at the very point and knew that their 12-year long wait for the UEFA Champions League title was soon going to come to a close. The match headed into extra-time as per the rules and it saw the Los Blancos join the party.

Angel Di Maria tore apart the Atletico defence in the 110th minute of the game and shot at goal only for the ball to be deflected by Courtois and Gareth Bale to rise up and score a header. Marcelo Vieira, the super sub ran riot through Atletico’s defence and scored a worldie in the 118th minute. To garnish the meal for Real Madrid, their talisman over the years, Cristiano Ronaldo, smashed a penalty in the final minute of the game only to hammer the last nail in the coffin for Atletico Madrid.

The rest, as they say, is history. The 2014 UEFA Champions League final saw Real Madrid announce their domination in world football. After this, the Los Blancos went on to win three consecutive UEFA Champions League titles from 2016 to 2018 and became the first team in the history of football to do so.

Although Real Madrid emerged as a deadlier team in the coming years, it was the 2014 final that set the tone for them to script history time and again when they stepped on the pitch.

Kieran Tripper Completes £21.7million Move To Atletico Madrid

Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid have agreed a £21.7million deal for Kieran Trippier.

28 year old, England right back, Kieran Trippier has moved to the Spanish capital to join Atletico Madrid. He has signed a 3 year contract, keeping him at the club until 2021.

Atletico Madrid signing the English defender makes him their first English signing in 95 years. He joined the squad immediately after the announcement. The players gave him a guard of honour at training. He is likely to make his debut on 20th of July against Numancia in the Club friendlies.

Trippier had starred for the national team in World Cup 2018, Russia. He left the World Cup with an injury after England’s semifinal exit from the tournament. However, he struggled in regaining his scintillating form back for the club.

The right back spent 4 years at Tottenham making over 100 appearances for them. He joined the North London side from Burnley in 2015. Trippier played his last game for Spurs in their Champions League loss to Liverpool in his new home stadium Wanda Metropolitano.

Trippier had not travelled with the squad for the Asian Premier League. Pochettino has also left their left back, Danny Rose at home indicating his exit from the club soon. With 21 year old Argentine Juan Foyth, showing good trust to play for Argentina in the Copa America, Pochettino may depend on him for the next season at the right back position.

Tottenham have also shown interests in Fulham’s teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon, and a deal may take action, since Fulham’s relegation to the Championship.

Atletico have reinforced their falling side after making some important signings. They’ve lost very important players from the side this summer, namely; Antoine Griezmann, Rodri, Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin and Juanfran. In a quest to revamp their squad they’ve made quite afew signings .

They have signed 19 year old Portuguese sensation Joao Felix for a €126 million deal from SL Benfica. 24 year old defensive midfielder, Marcos Llorente was transferred in a deal worth €30 million from Real Madrid C.F.

F.C Porto centre back Felipe and midfielder Hector Herrera have joined the Spanish side in a €20 million and a free deal, respectively. They also signed Left back Renan Lodi from Brazilian club Athletico PR for €20 million. And lastly, Kieran Trippier joining from Spurs.

Barcelona Announce Signing Of Antoine Griezmann From Atletico Madrid

F.C Barcelona have paid Antoine Griezmann’s €120 million release clause to bring him to Camp Nou.

World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann who rejected a move to the Camp Nou last year, secures his transfer to Barcelona this summer window. Griezmann had caused much conflict when he released a video last year to announce his staying at Atletico Madrid, leaving the Barca fans and board furious.

The French star has signed a five year contract with the club keeping him at the club until 2024. F.C Barcelona released a video starring Griezmann titled “Life is all about second chances”.  Barca have set his release clause to a whooping €800 million.

Real Sociedad will be getting approximately €24m (£21.5m) due to the 20 percent sell-on clause in the initial deal to sell the player to Atletico.

However, there are still complications in the move, with Atletico demanding €80 million more. Atletico have said that Barca had an agreement with Griezmann before his release clause dropped to €120 million on 1st June, and hence they will need to pay the prior clause which was €200 million.

Cerezo, Atletico Madrid president, said the club had proof that Griezmann and Barcelona negotiated early and planned to request a greater fee.

“If the club have made this statement it’s because there’s evidence,” he told RAC1.

“We have to study it and we’ll demand the amount we consider to be necessary.”

Barcelona are planning to unveil Griezmann on Saturday at the Camp Nou and have still not responded to the claims by Atleti.

The 28 year old scored 133 goals in 257 appearances for Atletico Madrid as the club’s fifth-highest goalscorer. During his tenure he won the Europa League, a Spanish Super Cup and a UEFA Super Cup with the Madrid side.

F.C Barcelona are still highly linked for a move for Neymar Jr. to bring him back to the Camp Nou which could see one of Coutinho or Dembele being swapped with PSG. With big moves Barcelona are aiming to win it all after being disappointed last season.

Madrid, Dec 14: Atletico Madrid’s head coach Diego Simeone said on Friday that holding the second spot in La Liga standings requires more work from him and his players, adding that he is critical most of himself.
