Diego Costa scored after just 49 seconds to put Atletico in front before Karim Benzema equalised for Los Blancos midway through the first period.

A controversial penalty decision gave Madrid the chance to go ahead as Sergio Ramos stroked home, but it was that man Costa at it again, who rifled in the leveller.

Marcelo nearly won the game for Madrid with the last kick of normal time, but Atletico surged ahead after the restart, with their two star midfielders scoring to seal the trophy.
