Fifth consecutive extension in finals between Real Madrid and Atlético

    The extension it seems assured in any final they have to Real Madrid Y Atlético de Madrid as protagonists This has happened on the last five occasions in which the two Madrid teams have played a title, like this Saturday in Jedah (Saudi Arabia) in the end of the Spain Supercup

    The first was the final of the Copa del Rey 2013 in Valencia, conquered by Atlético de Madrid with a goal from Miranda in extra time after the regulation time ended with a draw (1-1). The next two finals also concluded with a draw after one after 90 minutes. They were those of the Champions League which was awarded the Real Madrid in the cruelest way possible for mattresses.

    Real Madrid won two Champions League finals (2014 and 2016) and Atlético those of the Copa del Rey (2013) and the European Super Cup (2018)

    The first was in Lisbon with the head goal of Sergio Ramos in the 94th minute that matched the one marked by Diego Godín. The goal of the camero sank those of Diego Pablo Simeone, who in the extra time saw how Bale, Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo left the final 4-1.

    History repeated itself two years later in Milan
    . Sergio Ramos scored again but somewhat from Yannick Carrasco extended the game half an hour more. There were no goals and the Champions League was decided from the penalty spot. He did not forgive the team of Zinedine Zidane who won 5-3.

    Sergio Ramos scored in three of the previous four finals

    In 2018, in Tallinn (Estonia), the two teams met again in a final, that of the European Super Cup. This time the tie at the end of the 90 minutes went to two goals with Benzema and again Sergio Ramos as scorers while the many rojiblancos were both the work of Diego Costa. In the extra time the cat took the Atlético with so many of Saul and Koke to leave the 4-2.

    The extension of this Sunday in Saudi lands is the first in which neither team manages to score a goal in 90 minutes. Nor did they do so at the end of the 30 complementary minutes, so for the second time the game was decided from the penalty spot.
