Fans who watch the Real Madrid vs. Atlético Madrid match live stream in the UEFA Champions League final will be in for a great game as two of the top Spanish clubs face-off in the all important encounter.
The UCL final is significant for Real Madrid for a couple of reasons, and the stakes are high after a disappointing third place finish in La Liga.
First they are attempting to win “La Décima” for themselves and, more importantly, their fans, who have waited for 12 long years to add the 10th title to the team’s annals.
But first Cristiano Ronaldo and company have to get past a very inspired Atlético Madrid, which captured the La Liga title this past Saturday with a draw against Barcelona. It was one of the most dramatic endings to the Spanish league in recent memory.
Real Madrid and Barcelona were the two heavy favorites to win La Liga this season as usual. However, Atlético Madrid surprised even the experts with its strong season, which propelled them to win it all and shut down the heavy favorites.
Secondly, Ronaldo will be playing at Estádio da Luz in Lisbon in front of more than 65,000 spectators and many millions online and television sets all over the world. The Portuguese striker has said that winning “La Décima” for Real Madrid at home would be a dream come true.
Fans who watch the Real Madrid vs. Atlético Madrid match live will see manager Carlo Ancelotti completely focused on taking “Los Blancos” all the way to victory, which is said to be his personal obsession.
During Real Madrid’s media day earlier this week, the Italian veteran skipper — whose future at the Spanish club is uncertain –told reporters:
“I’m not thinking of my future. It doesn’t depend on what happens in the final. I’m happy to stay with Real Madrid, whether we win “la décima” or not. I’m optimistic. I’m only thinking about how we’ll win.”
Meanwhile, Atlético Madrid’s Diego Simeone hopes to capture the UEFA Champions League for the first time ever, which would end an incredibly successful season.
Fans who come to watch the UEFA Champions League final in Lisbon and those who watch online can cheer on local Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be playing despite suffering from an injury that sidelined him in the last La Liga match for Real Madrid.
