Real Madrid and Atlético will play on the 28th of May the final of the Champions League in San Siro. The neighbours will face each other again after the Lisbon final two years ago.
There are some reason to believe that Real Madrid will raise again the Champions League:
1. Good performance in finals
Real Madrid has played only 14 Champions League finals in their history and have won 10. This is a great record and the best example is that Los Blancos have won the last four final they’ve played. Last time Real Madrid lost a final was in 1981 against Liverpool in Paris.
2. More European experience
If Real Madrid have played 14 Champions League finals, Atlético played only 2, and they both beaten in the last minute. Los Blancos’ favourite competition is the Champions League whereas Atlético de Madrid have very little experience in these important moments.
3. Good moment
Los Blancos are in a better moment that Atlético de Madrid. Zidane’s squad won the last 12 games of La Liga in a row. They were able to beat Manchester City and Wolfsburg in Champions League. Since Zidane’s arrival, Real Madrid earned more points in La Liga than any other team.
4. Team and player believe in Zidane
The good results have changed the atmosphere in the changing room. Or maybe is the other way around. The players were boosted by Zidane’s arrival and have played much better with the French coach. It’s quite evident that the players and the coach are working together to win a major trophy.
5. The experience of Lisbon
Lisbon final was traumatic for Atlético de Madrid’s players and fans. Sergio Ramos’ last minute goal is been a nightmare for Colchoneros in the last two years. On the contrary, Real Madrid know they are a fearable team, especially in key moments.
