El Real Madrid fue campeón por primera vez tras eliminar a tres equipos que eran finalistas de la edición anterior y campeones de dos de las grandes ligas europeas. PARIS. - Esta Champions apoteósica pasará a la historia del Real Madrid no solo por las remontadas que llevaron al equipo blanco a conquistar la Decimocuarta.

NYCFC Sets Team Record, Stays In Second Place With Win

New York. - The New York City Football Club continue their unbeaten streak with a 1-0 win over the struggling Chicago Fire on Sunday and in the process, set a new team mark with 5 consecutive clean sheets. Scoring their lone goal would come on a penalty kick from Heber in the 23rd minute after a questionable handball call inside the box on Miguel Angel Navarro that officials rules a penalty. With Striker Taty Castellanos out due to yellow card suspension Heber's second goal of the season would prove to be the difference maker as the team rifled off 15 shots in total with 2 bouncing off the crossbar. Additionally, the Gents in Blue (or in fact Orange on Sunday) came just minutes away from setting a new MLS record by holding the opposing team without a shot on goal for three straight matches, however goal keeper Sean Johnson was forced to make an easy save in the final minutes of additional time to keep NYCFC out of the MLS record books.

A pair of shots off the post by DC United plus multiple scoring chances nearly cost NYCFC the lead. However a much needed goal from Golden Boot winner Taty Castellanos goal via penalty kick during added time in the first half took the wind out of the United sails and seemingly deflated the home crowd as well.

No Taty, Poor Weather Means Only One Point for NYCFC

New York. - On a cold and rainy night in New York for May, the Gents in Blue struggled offensively from start to finish in what can only be described as an offensive slog in a 0-0 tie. Operating without Golden Boot winner Taty Castellanos due to a “lower body injury”, NYCFC managed only three shots on goal (compared to no less than eight each of their previous 5 MLS matches) as the soggy terrain did little to help put shots on net.
