Yet another UEFA Champions League knockout match. Yet another historic comeback from Real Madrid.

Having gone behind to Bayern Munich, Los Blancos pulled off a 2-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu last night to book their ticket to the UCL finals in Wembley.

Joselu was the saviour for Real Madrid, scoring a quickfire brace late in the game after coming on as a substitute to win it for his team.

The Spanish centre-forward, who was in the audience supporting the Merengues in the UCL finals in Paris two years ago, managed to help the team secure a place in the finals where they will face Borussia Dortmund.

Naturally, it was an emotional evening for Joselu and his celebrations after scoring the goal said everything.

And once the final whistle went, the striker was overcome with emotions, as he fell on the pitch in tears, having led the team to the finals of the Champions League.

Joselu reacts after the game

Speaking to the media after the match, Joselu touched upon how he was in the stands supporting Real Madrid two years ago and now gets to experience the final more closely.

“Two years ago I had the opportunity to support Real Madrid and now I’m going to live it more closely,” Joselu stated.

“One dreams of having nights like this, in my dreams they are not so beautiful,” he added.

Touching upon the season he has had, the striker remarked: “I have 17 goals, don’t take it away from me, I have always said it, I have come to help, to contribute. I am happy and I continue working, we are league champions and we are in the Champions League final.”

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
