Gareth Bale cut a frustrated figure after Real Madrid CF were denied a second successive UEFA Champions League final appearance on Wednesday.
The Merengues drew 1-1 on the night with Juventus, losing out 3-2 on aggregate following last week's semi-final first-leg defeat in Turin. Madrid had gone ahead through Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty in the Spanish capital but then conceded an equaliser which Bale admitted "dented the confidence" of the holders.
