Real Madrid progressed to the final of Champions League on aggregate 4-2 scoreline despite losing their semi-final second leg 2-1 to Atletico Madrid at Vicente Calderon Stadium. "They're looking over their shoulders all the time".

The French striker was surrounded by three Atletico defenders by the end line, but found a way to get past all of them with a pair of quick touches.

Just three minutes later Atletico truly believed they could pull off the most unlikely of comebacks when Fernando Torres was upended by Raphael Varane inside the box.

Real Madrid are at home against Sevilla in a game that kicks off at the same time as Barcelona's game and go into the game after qualifying for the Champions League final on Wednesday night.

The Italian champions were in risky form as they disposed of the best side in Ligue 1 this term, winning both legs to progress 4-1 on aggregate. "They were also very important for me, gave me everything too".

"We are getting closer and closer to the goal". The update comes as the Merengues get ready for what Zidane has called "four finals" in pursuit of La Liga and Champions League crowns.

"We have three finals in LaLiga remaining and we are going to start with the first one".

The Frenchman only took charge 16 months ago but could now become the first coach to guide a club to back-to-back Champions League titles, following Real's penalty shoot-out success over Atletico in last year's final.

"I am happy and proud that once again we have shown why we are competing at the top level just behind Real Madrid and Barcelona", said the Argentine.

It was a tense match early on, with players from both teams trying to pressure the referee and complaining with each other.

"I am improving in all aspects (as a coach), but that doesn't mean anything", Zidane said.

'I hope he's ready before and I hope he can be with us more than anything. "Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus".

No team has ever won back-to-back titles in the Champions League.

The game ended in the middle of a tremendous thunderstorm and despite their sides exit, the home fans cheered their players off the pitch.
