Preview –
Atletico Madrid is a big name in Spanish football now-a-days. They have won the league and also done really well in Champions League playing the finals of this tournament twice in last 3 years. They lost 1 match before their last league match which took them out of the league before it finished but until that match they were in the 2nd position with equal points to Barcelona and this proves how good they have been recently. They ended the season with being 3rd and they will look to at least get the Champions League. Considering their recent success and the fact that they have done well against Real in the recent past puts them in a very good position but I would still say that they are the underdogs in this match. Maybe, they are nearly at equal footing here but still, its most probably 49% on their side from my prospective.
And that means that I believe that its Real Madrid who is the favorite here. They have done well to bounce back after a hectic season opening where they couldn’t win in away matches. After the new coach Zidane took charge, the team transformed and is finally playing very well. They won all 5 of their last matches and is very stable on the field. They defeated Manchester City by 1-0 in the semi-final to come here and they are at the top of this match. 2 years ago, they defeated Atletico in the final to get the Champions League and maybe they will try their very best to do that as well. Their key players are all rested and good to go. They will be playing this match from the upper position as I see it.
Prediction –
We predict that Real Madrid will win this match by a narrow 2-1.
