Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Champions League Final 2016
Real Madrid face off against Atletico Madrid at the San Siro in the final of the 2016 UEFA Champions League, in a huge match between the two Madrid rivals.
Los Blancos come into this match in excellent form and will be looking to better maintain that form ahead of this huge showpiece final. They ended the season as runners up in La Liga, losing out to champions Barcelona by an agonising one point in the end and they will be looking to salvage their season with an eleventh win in Europe’s elite club competition.
They don’t come much bigger than city rivals Atletico Madrid, who will also be looking to avenge the 4-1 defeat they suffered at the hands of Los Blancos two seasons ago. Gareth Bale has been stoking the fires this week by incredibly insisting that none of the Atletico squad would make it into the Real Madrid side and Real will be hoping it is a PR stunt that does not backfire on the Welshman.
Real have lost just one fixture in the Champions League this season and that was a resounding 2-0 defeat at the hands of Wolfsburg but they were able to put that right in the second leg winning by a 3 goal margin. There were question marks about Cristiano Ronaldo’s fitness ahead of this showpiece event but he has insisted he is fully fit and will take his place in the starting XI in Milan.
The last time they played Atletico earlier in the season they were beaten by 1-0 against Diego Simeone’s men but they do have the psychological advantage in Europe where they beat Atletico 4-1 in extra time to lift their 10th Champions League crown. They will be hoping history repeats itself in Milan.
Atletico Looking For Revenge
Atletico Madrid come into this match looking to win their first Champions League title and go some way to avenging the 4-1 defeat they suffered in the 2014 Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Atletico come into this match in mixed form and will be looking to produce another excellent result against Los Blancos this season having beaten them 1-0 at the Bernabeu in February of this year.
They finished third in La Liga and had an excellent season, it was only a shock loss against relegated Levante that ended their interest in a league and cup double, with Barcelona narrowly securing back to back La Liga titles. Diego Simeone will be very keen to add a Champions League win to his CV and that would complete a clean sweep of trophies for him as Atletico manager.
Atletico have lost three games in the Champions League this season but have progressed to the final the hard way, by beating pre tournament favourites Barcelona and Bayern Munich over two legs and beating city rivals Real really would be the icing on the cake for Diego Simeone and his charges.
Fernando Torres will have extra motivation for this match with Atletico not only his hometown club but he has despite an excellent season failed to earn a place in Vicente Del Bosque’s European Championships Squad, he will be keen to show him exactly what he is missing on the biggest stage.
Real Madrid come into this fixture with a record of five wins and one draw in their last six matches. Atletico Madrid head into this fixture with a record of four wins and two defeats in their last six matches.
Both teams are 1/1 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Real Madrid are Cristiano Ronaldo at 7/2 with Karim Benzema at 9/2. For Atletico Antoine Griezmann is at 9/2 with Fernando Torres at 13/2.
The last time that these two sides met Atletico won 1-0 in February and the odds of the same result are 7/1.
