That's a pity. Atletico just ran out of steam.

Di Maria had been fantastic.
He's been the difference.

Di Maria has been great running at the defenders but his crossing has been very poor.
Marcelo has made a difference I think, he's been very impressive.

Simeone has really let himself down there. What a stupid way to end a season like this.

Very cruel on Atleti in the end. They just didn't have the legs for another half hour.

Arseblog:

This allowed Ronaldo to do what he does best – make it all about himself.

His celebration was, frankly, execrable. A repugnant display of self-promotion and narcissistic conceit. He tore off his shirt, and flexed his muscles like some kind of special needs Hulk impersonator, as if he was the one who had scored the goal that had won the trophy for his team.

He ignored completely the two goals that had come before it that had actually done just that because, I’m sure, he simply refused to accept their worth. It was the equivalent of cold-clocking a child and dancing around as if you’ve just out-punched Mike Tyson over 12 rounds.

The world had to see his pecs and obliques, and those grotesque, bulging trapezius that, no matter how buff he makes them, singularly fail to hide the fact that his tiny head makes him look like something from a carnival freak show and not the sculpted Adonis he seems to think he is.

“Come see the monster. A body like Atlas but the head of a flea! Roll up, roll up!”

After a game during which he’d done the square root of fuck all, divided by infinity, to behave like that after scoring a penalty which meant nothing to the overall story of the game summed him perfectly. I’m sure he’ll have the moment framed and mounted on the ceiling of his personal fap room – a lair plastered with so many pictures of himself that even Brendan Rodgers would look in awe and wonder.

The rest of us just have to look at the ludicrousness of what he did and even if you admire his footballing talent, his total lack of anything approaching basic decency would be hilarious if it wasn’t just so utterly odious.

Completely over the top obviously but I agree with the sentiment. Ronaldo's a fucking obnoxious character.

I seen no problem with his celebration or Simeones reaction. It's the CL final, emotions are high.

I don't have a huge issue with him going apeshit, although I do think Arseblogger's right to an extent. The pout at the end was justreally cringeworthy. I think a major issue is that I don't find Ronaldo's arrogance/antics amusing. I find the likes of Balotelli and Zlatan funny at least.

As for Simeone, I thought he made a fool of himself. Getting that wound up by a 21 year old basically passing the ball to you is embarrassing.

I don't think you need to be jealous to consider Ronaldo an arrogant prick.
