Sergio Ramos' Champions League final goal was almost certainly offside

Ramos hadn't scored in 17 straight Champions League games before tonight's final - dating back to his header against Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid side in the 2014 final that helped earn Real Madrid a record-breaking 10th European crown.

However, that's all changed now after he scored the opener in the first half of the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid got off to a lightning start, while Atletico didn't register a shot on target in the first 30 minutes of the game.

Oblak was tested from very close range and pulled off a brilliant early save from Casemiro, but there was little he could do when Sergio Ramos bundled home Toni Kroos' wicked cross.

However, Atleti fans were up in arms because the Spanish defender appeared to be in an offside position. 

Check out the image below and make your mind up for yourself:

It's certainly a tight one for referee Mark Clattenburg and his assistants to call - but it would appear they made the wrong decision, just a week after he hit the headlines for a string of bad calls in the FA Cup final between Manchester United and Crystal Palace.

Who do you think deserves to win the Champions League final?
