Diego Simeone‘s charges inflicted Real Madrid‘s first defeat in a continental final for 18 years in Tallinn on Wednesday, with Atletico Madrid winning the UEFA Super Cup.

Los Blancos have won the last 13 continental finals they have played in this millennium, yet fell short against their fiercest rivals after extra-time.

Atleti had never won a European final against their local rivals, losing two Champions League finals in 2014 and 2016.

Not since November 28, 2000 have Real Madrid lost a continental final when they were beaten 2-1 by Boca Juniors in the Intercontinental Cup final.

From that date onwards, the Spanish giants won consecutive finals against Bayer LeverkusenFeyenoordOlimpiaAtletico MadridSevillaSan LorenzoKashima AntlersJuventusManchester UnitedGremio and Liverpool.
