REAL MADRID vs. ATLETICO MADRID
Real’s regular starters have struggled going into Tuesday’s game at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, where Zinedine Zidane’s team needed a late goal to beat Valencia at home in the Spanish league over the weekend. It conceded late in a loss to Barcelona last week and needed extra time to eliminate Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinals two weeks ago.
But Real has a winning record against Atletico in European competitions, beating its rival in a penalty shootout in last season’s final to secure a record 11th European Cup title. Two years earlier, it beat Atletico after extra time in the final. In the quarterfinals in 2015, it edged Atletico 1-0 on aggregate before losing to Juventus in the semifinals.
“It will be a very tough and hard-fought game, and just like our most recent meetings, it will come down to details,” Real right back Dani Carvajal said.
Zidane, who won the Champions League as a player with Real Madrid, has a chance to lift the trophy for the second straight time as a coach, less than 18 months since making his debut as a manager.
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone will have to find a way to stop Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid’s other stars to earn another shot at the trophy. A win this season would establish Atletico Madrid as a top European club, and silence critics who say the team’s recent successes have been flukes. Atletico Madrid also lost the 1974 final, that time to Bayern Munich.
