CONFIRMED: Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid lineups – Diego Costa starts!
The pair will face off in the first ever final to see two sides from the same city fight it out to be crowned kings of Europe.
Real Madrid will be desperate to finally get their hands on ‘La Decima’, their tenth European Cup success, with their last win coming 12 years ago courtesy of a stunning Zinedene Zidane volley against Bayer Leverkusen at Hampden Park.
A win tonight will be a first ever for Atletico, with Diego Simeone’s side beating all the odds this season to not only win their first La Liga title for 19 years last weekend, but also traverse a number of difficult Champions League ties to make it to the showpiece final tonight.
Here are the confirmed starting lineups:
Real Madrid: Casillas, Varane, Ramos, Coentrão, Khedira, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Carvajal, Modric, Di María
Subs: Diego López, Pepe, Marcelo, Arbeloa, Morata, Isco, Illarramendi
Atletico Madrid: Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe Luis; Tiago, Gabi, Koke, Raul Garcia; Villa, Costa
Subs: Aranzubia, Mario Suarez, Adrian, Rodriguez, Alderweireld, Diego, Sosa
