UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL 2014 PREVIEW | REAL MADRID-ATLETICO DE MADRID

Tomorrow Saturday 24th of May at around 21.50 (Lisbon, Portugal) time, either Real Madrid CF or Atletico de Madrid will be proclaimed UEFA Champions League season 2013-2014 winners. This naturally will be the case if the Final between these two Spanish Football Clubs does not go into extra-time or later into a penalty shoot-out.

Both teams have already given their pre-match press conferences & both teams have trained on the Lisbon (Benfica - "Estadio da Luz") playing field for tomorrow. All questions, all eyes & all Sports media cameras were focused on the players from both teams under a "injury cloud" for the Final.

The end result is still blurred & "up in the air" for some players. From Atletico de Madrid Arda Turan looked OK, as did Diego Costa who may have held himself back somewhat, except for a positive hard spirit that lifted hopes.

Real Madrid saw a confident & free flowing Cristiano Ronaldo who should play, but Pepe & Karim Benzema did not answer either way the questions or solve the doubts if they will make it. All I can say after watching both squads on TV is that they all seemed to be moving OK.Tomorrow all questions will be answered & all doubts will be cleared.

Thus speculation on tomorrows starting XI team line-ups is still just that, speculation as the training sessions did not reveal much nor diminish pre existing doubts. I get the feeling both teams are hiding their "cards".

From here all my best wishes to both team - obviously as a Atletico de Madrid fan my heart will be with them - & may the better team win.

I will be out tomorrow night on a personal affair but will be watching the Final. I will not be able to give all the post-match details & photos so please forgive me readers, but will be posting Sunday all the images of the teams & the celebrating Club with will be from Madrid either way.
