Atletico got off to a flying begin with Diego Costa scoring the opposition's speediest objective only 50 seconds in, yet Madrid returned to take a 2-1 lead as Los Blancos attempted to demonstrate they can at present win trophies without Ronaldo and with another mentor.

Be that as it may, Costa leveled late in the match with his second objective before Saul Niguez and Jorge "Koke" Resurreccion fixed the triumph in additional time on a cool night in Estonia's capital.

Atletico's triumph over its crosstown adversary had included criticalness after it lost two Champions League finals to Madrid in 2014 and 2016. Diego Simeone's group was additionally wiped out by Madrid in the 2017 elimination rounds.

"I'm elated," Costa said. "Genuine Madrid has constantly beaten us in these finals. The ball was in our court to win a last."

The misfortune leaves new Madrid mentor Julen Lopetegui as yet proving that there is life after Ronaldo, who scored 450 objectives in 438 matches previously joining Juventus this late spring and helped lead the club to three straight Champions League titles.

"I'm pitiful. I'm disappointed. It's a last that we lost," Lopetegui said. "Be that as it may, I likewise realize that we should wake up and set ourselves up for our first group match and begin the season on the correct foot."

Gareth Bale demonstrated looks of his pace and aptitude, yet couldn't emulate Ronaldo's capacity to choose an amusement all alone.

Rather, Costa was the person who overwhelmed at the Lillekula Stadium in Tallinn. He overwhelmed Madrid's inside backs in the main moment after a long ball from Stefan Savic, first winning a header against Sergio Ramos and afterward muscling past Raphael Varane to cut into the zone where he beat goalkeeper Keylor Navas at the close post.

Karim Benzema leveled in the 27th moment, heading in a pinpoint cross from Bale, who could split far from Lucas Hernandez on the privilege and twist the ball into his individual forward's way. Bunch, who was given a more liberated part than he's utilized to, caused inconvenience for Atletico's barrier in the principal half as he exchanged between wings. He was Madrid's principle inventive start by then, with his colleagues always attempting to nourish him the ball.

He blurred in the second half, however, Lopetegui was satisfied with Bale's execution.

"Gareth has played great. At this time of the season, every one of the players is not in the best physical way," the mentor said. "We are content with his execution and we trust he will put in merited exhibitions in the following matches."

Sergio Ramos scored a punishment in the 63rd moment after Juanfran Torres took care of in the region as the ball flew over him from a corner.

Juanfran compensated for it in the 79th by taking the ball off Marcelo close to the touchline and afterward going to Angel Correa. The substitute at that point skipped past two or three Madrid protectors and cut the ball once more from the byline to Costa, who jabbed the ball into the top of the net.

In additional time, substitute Thomas Party set up the conclusive objective when he stripped the ball off Varane and played a one-two with Costa before spilling toward the byline. Gathering at that point slice the ball back to Saul Niguez, who volleyed the ball first-time to send the ball past Navas to make it 3-2 in the 98th. Koke completed Madrid off with a cool complete in the 104th.

Lopetegui, who joined Madrid in dubious design and was let go as Spain mentor just before the World Cup, should demonstrate that he can expand on the achievement of forerunner Zidane and can win with new strategies.

Now and again, Madrid looked awkward playing under the new ownership based framework and appeared to miss Ronaldo's style and capability.

"We have to enhance the every one of the periods of the group," Lopetegui said. "We don't care to commit errors."

Madrid needed to play without new goalkeeper Thibault Courtois, as the previous Atletico player didn't dress for the match. Spanish media reports said the group didn't enlist him in time with UEFA following his exchange from Chelsea.

For Atletico, the triumph gives the group a lift before the season begins, Simeone said.

"The club is developing. We have another stadium," he said. "We have players who need to go along with us, players who would prefer not to abandon us. I think this says a lot."
