Spanish rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will face each other in the Champions League final for the second time in three years at the San Siro in Milan on 28 May.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport Europe.


Real Madrid are on a 10-game winning run in all competitions but have failed to beat Atletico Madrid in their last six head-to-head meetings. The 10-time European champions got the better of their city rivals in last year's Champions League quarterfinal, though, and also beat Diego Simeone's side 4-1 in the 2014 European Cup final in Lisbon.

Raphael Varane will miss the match with a thigh injury, while Alvaro Arbeloa (knee) is also likely to be sidelined. Zinedine Zidane has no other injury concerns.

Atletico Madrid have won seven of their 13 previous European encounters with Spanish clubs, losing only three. The Rojiblancos are bidding to win their first ever Champions League after their previous two European Cup final appearances – in 2014 and 1974 – both ended in defeat.

Simeone has no injury concerns. Midfielder Tiago returned from a long-term injury in the league game against Celta Vigo on 14 May.

What managers say

Zinedine Zidane: "It's two months since we lost to Atletico in the League. We've worked well since then. Losing a final is difficult. At this moment we don't think about losing, just what we can do to win. I wish it was Saturday already. I'm happy and excited. The feelings are mixed. What I can say is I am very lucky to share this with the players. I have a lot to learn but the desire to learn is tremendous. I'll improve, I'm convinced. But I have a lot to learn to be a great coach."

Diego Simeone: "We'll play against a team with fantastic players and who are among the top three in the world. We'll try to take the match to where we are most comfortable and feel most protected. It's great to play two finals in three years, and that's very important for us. [Milan] is about pure football. If there's a stage which represents football, it's in Italy."
