Real Madrid Stars Given Hero’s Welcome In Spanish Capital As Delighted Fans Gather For Parade After Third Consecutive Champions League Triumph

Real Madrid fans are getting used to Champions League title parades but the novelty will never rub off as they turned out in their numbers on Sunday to welcome their hero players back from Kiev.

The Spanish giants beat Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday night thanks to a freak Karim Benzema goal and a double from substitute Gareth Bale – including a fantastic bicycle kick – at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium.

Despite being pegged back at 1-1 through a Sadio Mane tap-in, Madrid showed off their incredible winning mentality to claim their third straight Champions League triumph. But Bale, who starred, was something of a misfit on Sunday. The Welsh star, who hinted at an exit in the summer post-match, was at the back of the bus and away from Real’s other key players.

And on Sunday, ecstatic Madrid supporters turned up in their thousands to give their stars a hero’s welcome as they proudly paraded their 13th European Cup around the buzzing Spanish capital.

The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Casemiro, Marcelo and slightly subdued match-winner Bale were pictured arriving for the celebrations in sunny Madrid, with the former seen high-fiving the fans before the parade got underway.

The festivities began with players and team members participating in a ceremony at a local cathedral. Then they met with the city mayor and community president before addressing fans from a terrace at the Puerta del Sol square, one of Madrid’s main locations.
