Yannick Ferreira Carrasco has stunned Real Madrid with a late equalizer at the San Siro. Atletico, all but out of the game and looking short of options, are heading into extra-time with Real Madrid and appear to be in better shape than their opponents.

Diego Simeone only used one sub, Carrasco, while Zidane has used up all three of his. Carasco has written himself into Atletico folklore with his goal and as for his celebration..it would melt your heart.

One of Atletico's strong points all season, and for the last three to be fair, has been their attacking full-backs. Juanfran surged forward and drilled a lovely cross that teased Real Madrid and with Carrasco arriving late, there was only going to be one result. Have a look below for yourself..

The Belgian has been sensational since coming on and, despite not starting for Diego Simeone, and adds another dimension to Atletico's attack. Much of the debate surrounding the final was whether Carrasco or Augusto Fernandez would start. If the games continues as it does and Atletico manage to find a winner, Simeone will have proven yet again why he is one of the most highly-rated managers in the world.

This is just beautiful.
