So both teams have a very tough starting eleven. But the 2 players to watch out for especially when they are with the ball are Cristiano Ronaldo and Diego Costa. While Diego had scored 8 goals in this tournament, Ronaldo scored 16 goals.

                                         Real Madrid walkthrough to the Finals

With a good football in their group stages, Real Madrid were the top in the group after beating FC Copenhagen, Juventus and Galatasaray.

Real Madrid took the next flight(Second Round)  and  Schalke 04 was the victim and if you saw that match, it was like  Schalke 04 coach(Jens Keller) cheated on the wife of Carlo Ancelotti and he decided to revenge with the football game with a 9-2 win on aggregate...It was like fun for Real Madrid boys after a 6-1 in an away match and another 3-1 at the Bernabeau.

Quarter Finals 

Real Madrid met with the same team that sent them out of the league last season, Borussia Dortmund. This was not a game served on a gold platter because even though Real Madrid won the match at their home ground with a 3-0 win, but almost fell to the Jürgen Klopp boys as they played 2-0 making the game 3-2 on aggregate. It was a tough game for Madrid that night on the BVB home ground.

The Semi-Finals : This is where you tell your neighbour,Real Madrid is here to lift the UCL. The Real Madrid team met with the reigning champion of the UEFA champion league, Bayern Munich. We were all expecting a great show for our money, but Real Madrid entertains us for the worth of the money with a 5-0 on aggregate to move to the big game finals. They had secured a 1-0 victory and while we all expect some magic game from one of the team rival coach, Pep Guardiola, who had managed Barcelona and we expect him to know the tricks of the trade was showed the other way round by the Ancelotti boys with a victory of 4-0 or like Patrick Wright will say 4 Nil.



                          Atletico Madrid walkthrough to the Finals

The Atletico Madrid team started well from the group stage as they won other group team like Zenit Saint Petersburg, Austria Vienna and Porto. 

The second game was a walk in the park as the Atleti team won one of the best Italian team, AC Milan with 5-1 aggregate. Ac Milan won't forget the name Diego Costa.

Moving ahead, the new La Liga champion, shows one of it's finest game as Coach Diego Simeone team played a 2-1 on aggregate in the Quarter finals. Diego Costa played a good match here, Koke finished the game, with Neymar scoring the 1 goal in the first leg.

José Mourinho might not see the winning of the Atleti team as he is referred to as the special one.Nothing was special about the match as the Atleti played a 3-1 on aggregate to knock out Chelsea from the UCL campaign. Twitter went agog on the night of these matches, home and away as everyone claimed Chelsea will be playing Real Madrid in the finals and this might have given José Mourinho the chance to meet his former club Real Madrid. 

But Simeone boys had a special plan for the special one(José Mourinho). After a 0-0 game at Vicente Calderón Stadium, the Atletico Madrid team traveled back to Stamford bridge and the whole twitter chorused the same nursery school rhymes,

 London bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down

London Bridge is falling down, my dear Chelsea.

While Real Madrid might be a lot of fan favourites, we also should not forget that Atletico Madrid is the La liga champion. Some games played between the 2 team as they are both spanish team includes a 2-2 draw and copa del rey with Real Madrid winning 5-0

Difficult to decide who wins, so we should all enjoy the UEFA champions league final


Atletico Madrid is the first team to break the break what we have known the La liga to be, La liga as defined by a good friend of mine as a league for Barcelona and Real Madrid team. All those changed last night as Atletico Madrid changed the norms after playing a draw match with the league past champion Barcelona. 

The last time another Spanish team aside from Barcelona and Real Madrid won the La liga was 2003-2004, the team that won back then was Valencia under the Rafael Benitez management. This is a fresh air for Spanish football.

According to a Doy News reader who talked to us via skype., he said.

This is a change in Spanish League football and am sure it's going to be a lot of parties this weekend for the fans of Atletico Madrid.

It was a standing ovation at the Camp Nou as both Barcelona fans and Atletico Madrid fans applaud the players.
