The road to the UEFA Champions League Final in Berlin is almost set. Real Madrid will have to play against Atlético de Madrid.

It will not be an easy tie. In fact, Atlético de Madrid clearly have the edge in this one. Apart from Real Madrid's victory in the last Champions League Final, Atlético de Madrid have won 4 out of their 6 last four meetings against their city rivals. Atlético's form is not great at the moment, that's true, but they are a team designed to stop Real Madrid. Furthermore, Simeone and his coaching staff will make sure to have their players completely ready for this tie, and they always have showed more desire to win.

The return leg will be played at the Santiago Bernabéu, so it will be extremely important for Ancelotti and his men to get a good result at the Vicente Calderón.
