Away goal ‘killed’ Atleti – Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo believes Real Madrid’s greater level of experience than Atletico Madrid was the difference between the two in the Champions League.

Isco’s away goal five minutes before the break was enough for Los Blancos to advance to their third final in four years as they aim to become the first side to successfully defend the title in the Champions League era.

"We knew that with a goal we would kill them, we had more experience and we showed it," Ronaldo told Cadena SER.

"Everything can happen, but I see the team well, we are strong. The players are very good, both those who play more and less often."

Ronaldo’s impact has been crucial in the run to the final – netting five goals against Bayern Munich and a hat-trick in the 3-0 first leg victory over Los Rojiblancos.
