Ronaldo's 20th-minute opener was cancelled out by a stupendous Mario Mandzukic goal, the Croatian chesting down Gonzalo Higuain's volleyed lay-off and arcing a sublime volley over Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

"We are disappointed. We played very well in the first half, we thought we had enough to win the game", the 39-year-old said. "In the second half we were too static", beaten manager Massimiliano Allegri told his post-match press conference. The difference was we didn't defend as well as we usually do. Football can be a nightmare. (Miralem) Pjanic's shot was deflected wide, Casemiro's shot was deflected into the goal.

"After we conceded the second goal, we should have stayed in the game, we should have kept playing, we should have been mentally tougher". Allegri was full of praise for his team on their season, but not on their second half display, when he spoke after the game.

This club is the biggest in Champions League history ever, it's great to be a part of and we want to win more". It's important to reach finals.

"To play a final in your home city is incredible, but to win it is better still".
