Real Madrid defeated Manchester City 1-0 thanks to an own goal in the first-half on Wednesday to line up a Champions League final against city rival Atletico Madrid.

The winner came after Gareth Bale’s superb strike from a tight angle in the 20th minute deflected off defender Fernando, giving Madrid a 1-0 aggregate victory after a scoreless first-leg draw in England last week.

Real Madrid will be trying to win its 11th Champions League title in the all-Spanish showdown in Milan on May 28, a rematch of the 2014 final - when it beat Atletico.

Wednesday’s win ended City’s best ever participation in the Champions League.
