This is the big one. It all boils down to one game to decide who are the kings of european soccer. Real Madrid and bitter cross-city rivals Atletico Madrid go head-to-head in the Champions League Final on May 28 at 2:45 p.m. EST in what should be an epic contest. Will Cristiano Ronaldo make the difference? Click here to watch!
It doesn’t get any bigger than this! Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will lock horns for the second time in three years at the Champions League Final on May 28, with the red and whites desperate to get revenge over their more successful neighbors for that 2014 loss. Will Diego Simeone‘s men be able to exact revenge on Los Blancos, or will the Real machine add another Champions League to their already illustrious record? Click down to watch!
Real will be pinning their hopes on golden boy Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, who will be desperate to show his nemesis, Lionel Messi how it’s done. The Portuguese has been absolutely unstoppable again this season, and his 16 Champions League goals in 11 games makes him the leading scorer in the competition this year.
But what Atletico has is an uncanny ability to keep prolific forwards out. In their 12 Champions League games this year, the opposition has failed to score against this resolute Atletico 7 times. They are organized incredibly by coach Diego, and they’re just so tough. They will do whatever they can defensively to stop you, so Cristiano can expect some rough treatment.
This will be a game rooted in tactics, and who gets it right on the night. Expect Atletico to sit deep and look to counter attack Real with their quick players in the final third. That might just be enough to earn Atletico their first ever Champions League win.
