With the European Championship kicking off next month, Champions League final marks the final club game of the 2015/16 campaign. Local rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will be locking horns with each other for the third time this season at the San Siro in Milan on Saturday night for the biggest prize in European football.
Atletico have overcome the odds this season, beating European juggernauts in Barcelona and Bayern Munich en route to the final. On the other hand, although Real were lucky to draw comparatively weaker opponents in AS Roma, Wolfsburg, and Manchester City, the path to the final was never a bed of roses as the latter two almost managed to eliminate them.
With Barcelona winning the La Liga and Copa del Rey, winning on Saturday night is suddenly imperative for either club as they would otherwise end their campaigns trophyless.
