LISBON, Portugal -- Real Madrids record 10th European title will be written down as a seemingly convincing 4-1 victory over Atletico Madrid. In reality, "La Decima" was a lot harder to come by. Atletico was minutes away from its first Champions League title Saturday when Sergio Ramos began Reals comeback by heading in the equalizer in injury time. Real then broke down Atleticos resistance with three goals in the last period of extra time to create an unfairly lopsided score. "Its the most important goal Ive ever scored," Sergio Ramos said of his game-changing strike. "We made history against a great rival. " As Atletico faded, Gareth Bale scored the winning goal with a header in the 110th minute, before Marcelo slotted in the third in the 118th and Cristiano Ronaldo polished off the win with a penalty at the end. "Madrid was better," said Atletico coach Diego Simeone, who lost his temper toward the end after failing to complete a La Liga-Champions League title double. "They were able to get out on the break and that hurt our chances." Diego Godin had put Atletico ahead when his 36th-minute header looped into a Real goal left vacant by captain and veteran goalkeeper Casillas reckless rush out. Atletico -- which had to substitute striker Diego Costa early in the first half -- then simply wore out in extra time as the team failed to follow up on the Spanish league title it secured last weekend. Had Atletico held on for its first European title, Ronaldo and Bale would have shared some of the blame for a series of missed chances in the 90 minutes. Instead, the star forwards added to their storied clubs illustrious history in club footballs most prestigious competition. "Ive learned from past experiences to keep going, to forget about the chances you miss and keep persevering," Bale said. "The celebrations of the crowd meant everything to me." Real coach Carlo Ancelotti also ties the record with three European Cup victories as a coach, after winning in 2003 and 07 with AC Milan. The Italian becomes the fifth coach to win with two different clubs. "The hardest thing was to tie the game because it was so tough for us at that point," Ancelotti said. "They suffocated the space and were doing it so well. The goal gave us strength." Casillas also won his third Champions League title, being the only player remaining from the clubs previous 2000 and 02 victories. After Ramos goal made up for his own mistake, Casillas ran deep into Atleticos half to share a long celebratory hug with Marcelo. Bales decisive goal sparked wilder celebrations, while Ronaldo pulled off his shirt before provoking tempers with a muscle-flexing pose after scoring his penalty -- extending his record for a Champions League season to 17 goals. Atletico coach Diego Simeone -- known for his fiery temper -- came on the pitch for a second time in extra time in the final minutes and confronted Real defender Raphael Varane after he kicked the ball toward the Atletico bench. Simeone had to be restrained by his own staff and was sent to the stands. "Hes a young player with a bright future, hopefully he learns," Simeone said. For pulling off his shirt, Ronaldo earned one of 12 yellow cards shown by referee Bjorn Kuipers of the Netherlands in an often physical match. Ronaldo and Bale were both sent tumbling by tough tackles within three minutes, but it was Atleticos 36-goal forward Costa who had to quit early. Costa hobbled off after just nine minutes, making it clear that the gamble by coach Diego Simeone to put him in the starting lineup had backfired. Costa also exited last weekends 1-1 draw at Barcelona in the Spanish league decider and received a horse placenta treatment on his right hamstring in midweek. Four minutes after Bale wasted Reals best early chance, scooping a left-foot shot wide from 12 metres (yards), Godin made Real pay. Casillas charged from his line when Juanfran lifted a high ball toward the penalty spot, and was stranded when Godin rose to loop a header toward the empty goal. The ball crossed the goal line before the veteran keeper could swipe it away. In a second half of increasingly hectic Real attacks, Ronaldo tested Thibaut Courtois with a curling free kick but was off target with a pair of headers. Bale was guilty of a series of miscued shots with the outside of his left boot, and a handball in the Atletico penalty area that added to Real fans frustrations. Atletico was less than two minutes from the title when its tough defensive line was finally breached by Ramos sixth goal in seven games, including two in the semifinal against defending champion Bayern Munich.
