New, comments

The stage is set.

Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid published the starting XIs for the 2016 UEFA Champions League final in Milan.

Real Madrid projected XI: Keylor Navas, Dani Carvajal, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema.

Atlético de Madrid Projected XI: (To Be Confirmed) Jan Oblak, Juanfran Torres, Diego Godín, Stefan Savic, Filipe Luis, Augusto Fernández, Gabi, Saúl Ñíguez, Koke, Antoine Griezmann, Fernando Torres.

there have been no surprises from what was initially reported this morning, with Casemiro starting in the midfield alongside Luka Modric and Toni Kroos while the BBC starts upfront.

For Atlético, coach Diego Pablo Simeone has kept it quite simple as well. Real Madrid must be careful with Griezmann and Torres' pace off counterattacks, especially Sergio Ramos and Pepe. Marcelo and Carvajal will also need to keep Koke and Saul busy and under control for most part of the game while also trying to match their intensity.
