Real Madrid finished the season at the 2nd position in Primera Division and they can’t be satisfied with it because they wanted to win the title. They are also eliminated from Copa del Rey for fielding ineligible player Denis Cheryshev against Cadiz, so the match against Atletico Madrid is the match of the season for them and they will be fully motivated to win this trophy. Real Madrid played against Atletico last season in the Quarter-finals of Champions League and eliminated them with 1-0 victory at Santiago Bernabeu. Interesting fact is that Real failed to beat Atletico in Primera since 2013. Big blow for Real Madrid and French national football team is the injury of Raphaël Varane, who will miss the Champions League final and EURO 2016.

Atletico Madrid have already played against Real Madrid in the final of the UEFA Champions League, two years ago, and Real Madrid beat them 4-1 in the extra-time. More about that match and preview you can read here.

Atletico Madrid finished the season in Primera at the 3rd position and they can’t be happy with that. Their main goal before the season started was to reach the place which leads in Champions League and they did it. Atleti failed to win their trophy in this competition in 2014 when they conceded a late equalizer and lost in extra-time. They have better squad than before and without any doubt they could be very dangerous. Despite the fact that Real Madrid are favorites to win trophy, I can’t underestimate Atletico Madrid who have amazing and very strong team. Many of their players know that they will not have many chances to play in the final of this competition and win this trophy, so they will be fully motivated to win Champions League. Their captain Gabi is optimistic and he believes that they can make another big step. “It’s the most important match of our lives.” – said Gabi for the official Atletico Madrid website.

English Mark Clattenburg will referee the 2016 UEFA Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid in Milan on 28 May.
