Real Madrid will face Atlético de Madrid on Saturday at 20:45 local time for the European glory. Los Blancos can hold for the 11th time the Champions League title, the second time in a row against the city rivals.
Zidane’s men are really focused on the game and have travelled on Friday to Milano. Real Madrid have never won in San Siro but they expect to change the history in the second Champions League final in only three years.
Everybody remembers the Lisbon clash, where Sergio Ramos scored in the very last minute (at 92:48 exactly) to secure the extra time. There, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo scored the goals to lift La Décima.
Having this in mind, Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid will face each other for the third time this season. Atlético won 0-1 at Bernabeu and they drew 1-1 at Calderón, still with Benítez on the bench.
Real Madrid don’t have any new injuries for the game. Raphael Varane will be the only player to miss the match due to a thigh injury. Cristiano Ronaldo is fully recovered after his physical problems and he’ll start with Bale and Benzema. The full squad have travelled to Milano to celebrate the title in case they’re able to lift the trophy.
Simeone doesn’t have any injury problem as well and he has only the doubt of including Giménez or Savic in the defense. The Uruguayan has more probabilities to start along with Godín as a full back. Fernando Torres and Griezmann will bring all the danger to Navas’ goal.
