Real Madrid have won their first Champions League group stage final of the season and will host Juventus in the semi-finals on Wednesday night.
Coach Rafa Benitez’s side were the surprise package of the tournament and it was a fitting climax to the run of form that saw them reach the quarter-finals in the last 16.
Juventus, who lost in the first leg, will be looking to avoid their first defeat since they were eliminated in the quarter finals of the Champions League in 2016.
“It’s a big step for us,” Benitec said after his side had dominated the first half.
“We know that we’ve got to win this game to qualify for the Champions league.”
Real Madrid’s first Champions league victory of the campaign came in the 2015-16 campaign when they drew 1-1 with Bayern Munich at the Bernabeu.
But Beniteg said he was “trying to make the most of the moment” in his team’s 2-0 win.
“We know we’ve had a big season, we know that’s a huge victory for us and a huge boost for our season,” he added.
“And then it was just a case of getting the right result and making the most out of it.”
