Florentino shelled out the record transfer outlay to reach the final of this season's Champions League at Real's Santiago Bernabeu. But like Alcorcon in the Copa del Rey, modestly-assembled Lyon ended Florentino's European dreams.
Only Karim Benzema (€36m) and Xabi Alonso (€30m) missed last night's game. But Cristiano Ronaldo (€96m) and Alvaro Arbeloa, through to Kaka (€65m), Ezequiel Garay and Esteban Granero, all featured. And Real Madrid's €250 million project fell apart in a disastrous second half.
