Atletico Madrid beat Chelsea FC in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final match up to advance to the title game in late May. That sets up an All-Madrid final, or a Madrid derby. It is the first time that two teams from the same city are meeting in the Final. It is the second straight year that two teams from the same domestic league will play in the final, in 2013 there was an all-Bundesliga final between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
The two Madrid sides have played four times this year and know each other well so anything could happen.
But what does Twitter think about the all-Madrid final?
