At 35-years-old, the 2018 Ballon d'Or winner pulled the strings and no Gladbach player could lay a hand on him.

The Croatian international has featured in every 'Los Blancos' game this season and remains an important part of the team.

Fans reacted to his performance and they think it was a perfect showcase of Modric's ability.

Zidane was delighted with his side's performance and said it was the 'most complete' they'd looked all campaign.

"This was the objective: to finish first," he said per Goal. "We played a spectacular game, from the first minute to the last. We interpreted the game really well.

"It's true this team has that [quality]: when the difficulties are great, it appears.

"I'm happy for the players because they are the most important thing. I'm fighting with them and I'm happy for them. It was a good game."
