Champions League 2014: Real-Atlético, a Madrid-focused finale

Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid, in the Liga, will be in the final of the 2014 Champions League for a historic derby.’s sport writing was interested in the respective courses of the two Iberian clubs to reach the final level of the competition.

This is a first in the history of the Big Ears Cup: two clubs in the same city will face each other in the final. While Real Merengues were too strong for Bayern (0-4), the Rojiblancos of Atlético Madrid qualified for the Champions League final 2014 at the expense of Chelsea (1-3). Thanks to their high aerobatic services, the two Madrid teams will meet on May 24th at the Stadium of the Luz of Lisbon for a final 100% Spanish. The second in a row for the same country, after the German duel between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in 2013. The Spanish Championship – which was said on a downward slope as to its level in recent years – shows its supremacy in the eyes of football Europe. On the occasion of this derby in the final.
Poster head of a group B rather noted with Galatasaray, Juventus and FC Copenhagen, Real Madrid has brilliantly negotiated its stage of hens. 16 points to the counter, with 5 wins and a small draw (2-2) at Juventus Stadium, allowed him to finish first of his group. Results like the Madrid neighbour, for that matter. Atlético has, too, won all of its hen matches, conceding only a draw on the lawn of the Zénit Saint Petersburg. With its 15 goals recorded in 6 matches, the other club in Madrid dominated a group G composed of FC Porto, Austria Vienna and Zénit Saint Petersburg.

The eighths of the final

On the next round, the Colchoneros were opposed to AC Milan, a big European name in trouble this season in the championship. At the end of a trap game in San Siro where he was put in trouble, Atlético ripped off an important victory (0-1) to approach the return match serenely. Appointment they did not miss since they corrected the men of Seedorf (4-1), thanks in particular to a doubled of Diego Costa. The Real Madrid rubbed itself to the Germans of Shalke 04. Off all suspense during the game go off-Rhine (1-6), Karim Benzema and his teammates ensured the match back to Santiago Bernabeu (3-1), in a game at the relative stake.


In the quarterfinals, the protégées of Florentino Perez had the opportunity to take their revenge against their executioner of 2013: Borussia Dortmund. Revenge that they managed to snatch in pain. After a resounding success (3-0) at home, the Real was frightened at the Signal Iduna Park (2-0) with a glimpse of a miracle return of the players of the BvB. Atlético Madrid, for its part, was awarded a first 100% Spanish duel against FC Barcelona. Already opponents 4 times (for 4 draws) previously on the national stage, both teams delivered a rather closed performance to the match Go (1-1). In an equally locked back confrontation, it was the men of Diego Simeone who logically validated their ticket for the last square (1-0).
The semi-finals

At the edge of the last four matches before the final, it was difficult to know which clubs would be heading towards Lisbon. With a tantalizing Atlético – Chelsea and a great Real – Bayern, the semi-finals were preparing to reserve two duels on the sidelines of the story. After a draw (0-0) Insipido provoked by José Mourinho and his ultra defensive tactics, the Colchoneross returned from Stamford Bridge with a glittering victory on return (1-3) allowing them to qualify a second time (after 1974) for the final of The Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo, author of his 15th and 16th goals of the competition (a record on a season), and his own have overthrown him from the title Munich by imposing himself hard at home to the Go (1-0) and by spraying the players from Guardiola to return () (0-4). A tactical recital on the part of Ancelotti.
See you on May 24th for the final, so. Football fans are just waiting for that. What is your favorite for the final?
