It's all set. In about three hours, the UEFA Champions League will have a new champion.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Coentrao, Khedira, Modric, Di María, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Atlético Starting XI: Courtois, Juanfran, Godín, Miranda, Filipe Luis, Tiago, Gabi, Koke, Raúl García, Villa, Costa.

This is it. Make or break. Win the tenth or keep being stuck with nine. Get your name written down in the history books or be just one more Real Madrid player throughout the years.

Ancelotti has trusted Khedira ahead of Illarramendi, so the team will probably play with a 4-4-2 formation that will definitely change Modric's game. The Croatian player will be vital for Real Madrid's chances as Atleti's midfield will surely press high. If Khedira and Modric know how to play together and Di María and Bale help Carvajal and Coentrao, Real Madrid will be able to get the trophy home.

Diego Costa is also starting in Atleti's 4-4-2, and so is David Villa. Varane and Pepe will need to be careful with them.
