The numbers behind Real's win
Real Madrid defeated Atletico Madrid 4-1 in extra time to win La Decima, the club's elusive 10th European Cup title, three more than any other team. Here are five notes on the first intra-city European Cup final:
- After transferring last summer for a record $145 million, Real Madrid's Gareth Bale scored the go-ahead goal in the 110th minute, for the first extra-time goal in a European Cup final since 1992, when Ronald Koeman scored Barcelona's game-winner against Sampdoria. Bale's goal came after Sergio Ramos tallied the first second-half stoppage-time goal in a final since Manchester United's Ole Gunnar Solskjaer beat Bayern Munich in 1999.

- Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty was his 17th Champions League goal this season, extending his single-season record. It was his 67th career Champions League goal, tying Lionel Messi for second-most all-time, four behind Raul's record. He also scored for Man United in the 2008 final, making him the the second player to score for two different teams in the European Cup final. The other was Velibor Vasovic, who struck for Partizan Belgrade in 1966 and Ajax in 1969.
- Real Madrid is the second team to score three extra-time goals in a European Cup final, along with Manchester United in 1968. The three-goal win matches the second-largest final victory in the Champions League era.
- In his record-tying fourth European Cup final, Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti won his third European Cup, adding this title to his two with AC Milan. He's the second coach to win the European Cup three times, joining Bob Paisley, who won with Liverpool in 1977, 1978 and 1981.
- Angel Di Maria created Bale's go-ahead goal, capping a stellar performance for the Argentine. His 48 touches in the attacking third after halftime were 19 more than any other Real Madrid player. As a team, Real Madrid created a total of 14 chances in the second half and extra time, after creating zero in the first half.
