Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid live stream: Watch Champions League Final online


For the first time in history, two teams from the same city will square off in the Champions League final. Until the change to the tournament’s format, two teams from the same domestic league was rare but now it has happened for the second time in a row. It is also the third time in six years that it has occurred.

For Real Madrid they’ve achieved a Final spot, and a Copa Del Rey win, with first-year manager Carlo Ancelotti replacing Jose Mourinho. Ancelotti has won the trophy twice as a player and twice as a coach, bringing a wealth of experience to the club. Real captain Sergio Ramos had a lot of praise for the team’s boss and gave him a lot of credit for the team’s success this season.

“Apart from being the boss, the skipper, the captain of the ship, he’s a friend and he understands us perfectly,” Ramos said, via ESPN FC. “That makes the job a lot easier and it lifts your self-esteem and confidence.

“In this sense he’s one of the main reasons behind the great season that Madrid has had, fighting for the league until the end, winning the Copa del Rey and now having the chance to play in the Champions League final.”

While Real Madrid is looking for their 10th European Cup, Atletico Madrid is looking for their first. They’ve made it to the final once before in 1974, and they lost to Bayern Munich who went on to win the next two European Cups to make it three in a row. Atletico has been led by Diego Simeone, who has brought them a La Liga and Copa Del Rey trophy domestically. On the European stage he was led them to a win in the UEFA Europa League Final in 2012 and a Super Cup that same season. Atletico Madrid midfielder Tiago was also quick to praise his manager, like Ramos, but maybe even more enthusiastically.

“I think for us, for all the club, he’s like a God,” Tiago said, via ESPN FC. “He arrived to the club and changed everything. What he says comes true.

“If he asks him to jump from a bridge, we jump. I think he knows a lot of football. We as a group follow him, and we’re very proud to have him as a coach.”

Nevertheless, booth coaches find themselves in a situation with a lot of pressure to defeat their rival. For Ancelotti it is the 10th European Cup win, and for Simeone it is getting the club their first. This might be where Ancelotti’s experience gives him an edge. Ancelotti said that he feels like giving his squad clear tactical instructions helps keep the players relaxed ahead of the big game.

“In this moment, the most important is to be relaxed,” Ancelotti said, via ESPN FC. “We will try and train well today and give them clear instructions for the game. This is a good way to avoid the pressure of the game. They can think about how to play it the best.”

Because it is two Madrid teams, from the same domestic league, it might not be as appealing of a match up on the international or even European stage. Despite that it should be an incredible final to watch because it pits two rivals against one another. Imagine the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox squaring off in the World Series.
