As a result, the outcome once again included extra time, but with a happy ending for another side: playing at home, the team led by Simeone won 4-2, with a goal from Brazilian Samuel Lino and brilliance from Griezmann.

Before the ball rolled, Vini Jr was the target of racist abuse from rival fans, who called him a “monkey”. On the field, the number 7 had been playing well before failing to score Griezmann’s goal. It was his beautiful pass to Bellingham to provide the assist for Joselu to score Real’s second goal.
