Real Madrid stars given heroes welcome in Spanish capital as delighted fans gather for parade after third consecutive Champions League triumph
Real Madrid fans are somewhat getting used to Champions League title parades but the novelty will never rub off as they turned out in their numbers on Sunday to welcome their hero players back.
The Spanish giants beat Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday night thanks to a freak Karim Benzema goal and a double from substitute Gareth Bale – including a fantastic bicycle kick – at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev.
Despite being pegged back at 1-1 through a Sadio Mane tap-in, Madrid showed off their incredible winning mentality to claim their third straight Champions League triumph.
