Zidane's team re-emerged from the Calderón tunnel for a final time, adorned in t-shirts paying tribute to their '12th man'.

In a symbolic act, Madrid captain Sergio Ramos laid two club flags on the turf. Both bore the Real Madrid club crest; one with a white background, the other imposed on a Spanish flag.
