18:45 - Hello everyone I am Danial Kennedy and welcome to VAVEL's coverage of the 2016 Champions League final between Real and Atletico Madrid
It was Godin who gave the then underdogs the lead but was denied the victory by Sergio Ramos’ late header and goals in extra-time from Bale, Marcelo and Ronaldo gave then Carlo Ancelotti’s the victory.
However their most famous clash in the past few years was at the same stage of Europe’s elite competition two years ago when Real secured their tenth European title.
That didn’t change this season with a 1-1 draw at the Vicente Calderon in October and a single goal from Griezmann back in February gave them the victory at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Since Atletico’s superior rise over the last few years have begun to match Real in terms of quality with just one defeat in their last ten matches with their city rivals in all competitions with five of those been victories.
Simeone will be boosted by having no significant injuries going into this game, there was concern over star defender Diego Godin who had a thigh problem but is fine to play in the Milan on Saturday.
Fans took a sharp intake of breath when footage showed talisman Ronaldo limping out of training in the week but he has insisted that he will be fit for this clash.
Zidane was dealt a big blow when it was announced that young defender Raphael Varane who suffered an injury in training will sit out of the fierce derby in Milan and has been replaced in France’s Euro 2016 squad by Sevilla’s Adil Rami.
Despite goals from Xabi Alonso and Robert Lewandowski, Griezmann popped up with the crucial goal at the Allianz arena to seal passage to their second Champions League final in three seasons.
The Champions League has where they have shined this season with their defensive style of play outwitting the likes of Barca and German giants Bayern Munich in the last four.
A surprise 2-1 defeat to Levante ended their chances but ended the season on a high with a routine 2-0 win over Celta De Vigo with goals from Fernando Torres and Antoine Griezmann saw them finish three points behind Enrique’s side.
Like their bitter city rivals, Atletico have had a good run of form recently with three defeats in their last 12 matches in all competitions and like Real were very much involved in the La Liga title right down to the wire.
Diego Simeone will be looking to seize this opportunity at the second time of asking and will be hoping that he can banish the demons of the 2014 final with a long-awaited victory on Saturday.
There has been a big focus on Europe from Zidane and his side but have failed to really impress in the latter stages of the Champions League but have still managed to dispatch every team in their way. Manchester City were the latest victim with a single heavily-deflected goal from Gareth Bale in the second leg setting up this tie at the San Siro.
Madrid did their part with a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo gave them a simple 2-0 win over Deportivo but a Luis Suarez hat-trick for Luis Enrique’s side saw the Madrid outfit miss out on the title by just a point.
Real have improved massively since the arrival of Zidane and the departure of Rafael Benitez especially in the final leg of the season losing just one of their 12 matches and Barcelona’s minor demise sending the Spanish title right to the final day.
Having just missed out on the La Liga title on the final day of the season, club legend and manager Zinedine Zidane will be desperate to deliver Real Madrid’s 11th European Cup on Saturday night.
