It was Zidane's stunning volley against Bayer Leverkusen that won Real the 2002 title in Glasgow, while previous year, five months after replacing Rafael Benitez as coach, he breathed new life into a demotivated team and took them to the Champions League trophy.
Real Madrid were three points ahead of Barcelona on the La Liga table and needed a draw or win against Malaga to win the 2016-17 title.

The 24-year old lefty, who allowed seven runs on four homers in that game, is 4-2 with a 3.54 ERA. But 30 of his pitches were fouled off as Boston Red Sox hitters didn't let him get many quick at-bats.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri said even his side's rock-like defence was powerless to resist Real Madrid's firepower as the Italian club's hopes of a first Champions League triumph in 21 years ended in heartache on Saturday.

With recently hired coach Andre Agassi calmly sitting in his player's box, Djokovic had to scramble in spells against Granollers, but the Serb was able to routinely have success against the World No.76's second serve and he parlayed that into eight break points converted out of 20 break points earned.
However, Real Madrid came smoking in the second half as Casemiro saw his hopeful long ranger take a deflection and beat Buffon. The Italian side were reduced to 10 men with under 10 minutes remaining when substitute Juan Cuadrado was booked for a second time - rather harshly to be honest - for a slight touch off-the-ball on Sergio Ramos.
It is what it is. "No ifs, ands or buts, we got to figure out how to combat that", James said of Durant's onslaught. "But that's what stands out".

Amla's 103, his 25th one-day global ton, should have been the platform for a heftier target in glorious sunshine on a flat Oval pitch. Opting to bowl first, Sri Lanka adapted well to the conditions, restricting South Africa to only six fours and one six in the first 20 overs.

(630), Jim Thome (612) and Sammy Sosa (609). Barry Bonds still holds the Major League record for most home runs in his career with 762.

Jake Guentzel scored the first goal, assisted by Sidney Crosby and Ian Cole . The Nashville Predators kept alive their hopes of winning a first Stanley Cup with a 5-1 rout of the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game Three of the final series on Saturday.
He is best remembered for trying to make a unsafe first turn pass for the lead on the final lap at the 2012 race. The Chip Ganassi driver recorded the fastest lap and four-lap qualifying average in 21 years. Both face an uphill battle to reach victory lane at the Brickyard. Just four attempts earlier, IndyCar rookie Fernando Alonso posted the fastest average since Helio Castroneves' 2002 pole-winning speed.
This is what it sounded like after the Predators went up 2-1 on the Penguins in the second period of Game 3. Game 4 is Monday night in Nashville. The big question for Nashville is whether he can keep it up. And if it's up to him, it'd go to a guy whose performance has been so great that he'd earn MVP honours without playing in every series .
Juventus' supporters carry an injured woman in Piazza San Carlo after a panic movement in the fanzone in Turin, Italy, June 3, 2017. That was enough to trigger a stampede out of the city's Piazza San Carlo, in which the injuries occurred.
Guentzel, already with two game-winning goals in the series, put the Penguins up 1-0 on their second shot with a wrister off a rebound of Ian Cole that beat Rinne just 2:46 into the game. "It's the best atmosphere I ever played in. We had seven or eight minutes of really good hockey".

"It's another record and these players deserved it, me too because I scored two goals and finished as the top scorer in the Champions League ".
In a league where seemingly every team is trying to go small as often as possible, there is no configuration any team can put together that's more risky than the "Hamptons Five", as the Warriors quintet was dubbed after a recruiting meeting in the Hamptons where Durant was convinced to join them as a free agent last July.
The pressure they created could have earned more rewards, but Lasith Malinga failed to get a hand on a Faf du Plessis top edge when he was on only eight. Tharanga had completed a fluent half-century but he was caught by David Miller playing a pointless lofted drive to deep cover, sparking further wild excitement from the bowler who could probably produce a competitive time at the world indoor 60 metres heats if the starter's gun could be synchronised with a successful lbw appeal.
Speculation had been rife ever since the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chose not to automatically extend the tenure of Kumble as head coach, choosing instead to advertise the position on their website on May 25. Pakistan , captained by Sarfraz Ahmed , one of the world's leading wicket-keeper/batsmen, have plenty of variety in their attack. Cricket fans, not only in India and Pakistan , but across the globe would be having their eyes glued on television sets when the ...

And having lifted the European Cup once with Manchester United , Ronaldo has done it three times in four seasons with Madrid. Ronaldo became the first player to score in three Champions League finals and took his tally of career goals to 600 with a man-of-the-match performance against a Juventus side that started brightly but badly lost their way in the second half.
He said the team has rectified the mistakes it made in the West Indies. There is no need to be extra motivated against one particular side. India go into the tournament as a the defending champions after winning the 2013 tournament in which they trumped England in the final to lift the trophy for the second time.
One boundary an over is no longer considered impossible and in the remaining 250 balls 120 or 130 is easily gettable. "Whichever team handles the pressure in a better way-holds the edge". The bowling is slightly underdone but Kagiso Rabada and Kishan Maharaj are no pushovers. "Laxman also insisted that captain Virat Kohli , Kedar Jadav and Ravindra Jadeja , were amongst runs too".
When Madrid flew to Turin for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final in 2003, the "Galacticos" appeared on the brink of yet another memorable conquest. Zidane got one back, but it was Juventus who advanced to a final they lost to AC Milan. A long-range deflected effort by Casemiro and a neat finish by the irrepressible Ronaldo within four minutes effectively settled one of the most entertaining finals for years, with a late tap-in by substitute Marco Asensio adding the gloss.
Juve had been bidding to complete a Treble of Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League successes and Allegri said they could still reflect on their season with pride. "I prepared for this, we've won big things in the end". This is the sixth time Ronaldo has clinched the top-scorer prize in the Champions League-not to mention his fifth time in succession.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the opening goal for the winners in the 20th minute. And in the process he notched his 600th career goal as well as becoming the first player ever to score in three Champions League Finals. Like 2011, the 2017 final showed signs of a close encounter only for the Spanish side to pull clear with a dominant second-half performance. According to Manchester Evening News , Manchester United dropped their interest in Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann in order to ...
Instead of being aggressive, I didn't really do much and he won that point. In the third set, Del Potro's challenge wilted under a barrage of hefty Scottish groundshots and deft drops. I couldn't believe that I lost that set, because I had many opportunities to win. "Mentally I feel pretty good just now", Murray said after the win.
Juventus started the brighter and Mario Mandzukic's overhead kick will live long in the memory, but Ronaldo's brace along with efforts from Casemiro and Marco Asensio left Real celebrating a surprisingly comfortable 4-1 win. The first Champions League final to be played beneath a closed roof saw Juve hit their heads against a familiar ceiling as they missed out on a chance to complete the first Treble in their history.
