Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid: Casillas, Carvajal, Ramos, Pepe, Coentrao, Modric, Di Maria, Khedira, Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema Atletico Madrid: Courtois, Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Luis Felipe, Turan, Gabi, Tiago, Koke, Adrian, Diego Costa UEFA Champions League have come to the final. This is the first time in the history of this competition two teams from the same city to play in the final. I expect an interesting match and I expect a draw. Real are favorites, but Atletico Madrid could also win the trophy. Atletico’s top goalscorer Diego Costa is in the centre of the attention. As You probably know, he was injured. Costa then visited the Serbian Capital Belgrade to see the famous D-r Mirjana Kovacevic. She uses fluid derived from horse placenta to repair damaged cells. “It all depends on the horse treatment used, but I have no idea about it as I’m not a doctor,” Atletico president Enrique Cerezo said. Kovacevic has previously treated some other players like Van Persie and Lampard. And the most important, she was successful. It seems she did another miracle and Diego Costa took part in the training session with other Atletico players. Diego Costa seemed to be running freely during a light training session as he attempts to recover from the hamstring injury which threatens to rule him out of the Champions League final against Real Madrid on Saturday. The 25 years old striker even managed a couple of sprints. The coach Diego Simeone is giving Costa until the last possible moment to prove his fitness and will make a final decision on whether he is to take part in this match. Simeone led his team to the Primera title earlier this month after played a 1:1 draw with Barcelona at Nou Camp. It is interesting how the key midfielder Tiago spoke about Simeone during the pre-match press conference on Friday evening: “He (Simeone) is like a God for us. He arrived and changed everything. What he says comes through to us. We follow him if he asks us to jump from the bridge, we jump. He knows a lot of football. We follow him and we are proud to have him as a coach.” It is clear there is a chemistry in the team and I believe this could be a crucial factor. But Real are also a strong team. They have three players able to make the difference in a match like this – Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. Considering the previously mentioned facts, I don’t see a clear favorites here and I expect the match to be decided in extra time. I expect a draw after the regular 90 minutes.
