Real Madrid Juvenil A wins UEFA Youth League for the first time after defeating Benfica U19

Raul’s Real Madrid Juvenil A side have won their first-ever UEFA Youth League trophy after defeating Benfica U19 3-2 in the finals.

Los Blancos dominated the first half and goals from striker Pablo Rodriguez and an own-goal from Henrique Jocu gave them a 2-0 lead.

Benfica then pulled one back early in the second-half through Goncalo Ramos, but Miguel Ortega’s 50th-minute goal proved to be our winner even though Ramos scored another one in the 57th.

The Portuguese side threw everything at and even won a penalty late on, but a brilliant save from Luis Andugar sealed the win for us.

Raul has done a brilliant job with the U19 side and this is his crowning achievement, something that can further boost his chances of becoming the senior team’s boss in the future. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
