We controlled the Game- Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo said that there are no doubts over Real Madrid’s place in the Champions League final. 

Ronaldo returned from a hamstring injury and helped Madrid reach a 14th European Cup final. A Gareth Bale shot deflected off Fernando in the 20th minute was all Real Madrid needed to dump Man City out of this season’s Champions League. 

Ronaldo said: “We are happy because we are in the final and it is special. It was tough, but we played better than City, created more chances and were more intense. We knew after our goal that City would press, but we controlled the game. We had chances through [Luka] Modric and myself, and it was the kind of game we had to kill off. One-nil is a close result but we were the better side.”

Ronaldo, who was declared fit after missing the first leg in England, added: “I have not competed for 15 days but people forget I recover quickly. I’m tired but really happy.” 

Madrid’s victory set up a repeat of the 2014 final, when Madrid won the title after securing a 4-1 extra-time win over Atletico Madrid. Real Madrid are eyeing a 11th UCL trophy this season.
