UEFA Champions League: Simeone's side take on Real Madrid in Saturday's final


05-27-2016 15:50 BJT

To football and with just a day to go until the UEFA champions league final, Atletico Madrid have arrived in Milan ahead of their showdown with city rivals Real on Saturday.

In 2014 the two sides faced off in the title match and Los Blancos ran out 4-1 winners, but Colchoneros boss Diego Simeone is expecting a much more even encounter this time.

That final in Lisbon had to go to extra time after Atletico had led until the 80th minute of the match.

Two years on and their main threat now comes in the form of Antoine Griezmann who has netted 22 times in La Liga this season and also grabbed key goals in their European campaign, most notably against Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.

Ronaldo and Atletico will have to break down the meanest defence in Europe if they want a record 8th European title. This season Atletico conceded only 18 goals.
