Ramos marca el gol de la Décima

Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid will come face to face once again in a European final, two years after the one that saw the Blancos crowned Champions of Europe for the tenth time. Two years on, the Rojiblancos will be looking for revenge for that 93rd minute goal scored by Sergio Ramos that deprived them of their first-ever Champions League title and helped their fiercest rivals win it.

The two squads are very different. On the one hand, the team led by Cholo Simeone will not be able to line up seven of the 14 footballers who played (counting the substitutes) in Lisbon: Courtois, Miranda, Raúl García, Diego Costa, Adrián, Sosa and Alderweireld. Zidane, who was Ancelotti’s second-in-command back then, will also not have all those who played in Lisbon available: Casillas, Coentrao, Khedira, Di María and Morata are no longer at the club.

The desire for revenge on the part of both teams is clear. Atlético de Madrid have beaten their rivals this season in the league, and are candidates for the title as well, ahead of Real Madrid, but the bitter taste left in their mouths by that final defeat is still there. The victories in the domestic competition have partly compensated the bitter disappointment they felt on losing the final in Lisbon, but they have a burning desire for the glory that escaped from them in extra time at the Estadio Da Luz. On the Merengue side as well, the hunger for revenge and the need to prove themselves is enormous. The Blancos‘ play has been criticised a lot, both in the domestic competition as well as in the Champions League, and lifting another ‘Big Ears’ would not only confirm them as the top team in the Spanish capital, but also in Europe.
