SPANISH CUP - COPA DEL REY - FINAL 2013 | POSSIBLE STARTING 11 TEAMS LINE-UPS

Friday 17th of May at 21.30 hours the city of Madrid will stand still while its two biggest Football Club play it out in the Spanish Cup - Copa del Rey - Final at the "Santiago Bernabeu" Stadium. Maximum rivalry, with Real Madrid wishing to end the season with at least one major trophy after failing in Liga & Champions League, while Atletico de Madrid wants to shake off the 15 year drought of "no wins" against Real Madrid & put a cherry on their great season cake ( apart from "sticking it up" the city rival).

spanish cup final 2013

There is fair unanimous consensus on the starting 11 line-ups of both Clubs from the Spanish Football commentators & observers this time around. Although predicting teams is a "risk affair", this Final has everyone betting on the same names as team starters. 

Real Madrid suffered an important loss last weekend in the Liga game against Espanyol with the knee injury of defender Rafael Varane which he was later operated. This could have put a smile on the face of Pepe who is on the margin after questioning his Coach Mourinho in the "Casillas affair". But most observers think Pepe won´t be so lucky & will stay on the bench with  his "punishment". 

The speculated starting 11 team line-up for Real Madrid in the Spanish Cup Final is :

Diego Lopez, Essien, Albiol, Ramos, Coentrao, Xabi Alonso, Khedira, Modric, Ozil, Cristiano Ronaldo & Benzema


For Atletico de Madrid Coach Simeone has a fairly clear idea of which players will be making up his starting 11 line-up team for Atletico de Madrid in the Spanish Cup Final:

Courtois, Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Luis Felipe, Gabi, Mario Suarez, Koke, Arda, Diego Costa & Falcao

As always these are speculated line-ups & changes could occur in the last moments. I´m going for Atletico, & being sporting, may the better team win.

 Aupa Atleti :O)
