Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid Champions League Final - 28-05-2016

Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid
Competition: UEFA Champions League Final
Date: Saturday, 28 May 2016 - Time: 19:45 BST
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milano

Real Madrid team finished as runners up to Barcelona, just one point in arrears. They won 28 of 38 league games, drawing six and losing four with 110 goals scored and 34 conceded. The Blancos have had to overcome one major hurdle en-route to Milan. A 2-0 defeat at Wolfsburg left Zinedine Zidane’s men on the brink of crashing out in the quarter-finals, but a Cristiano Ronaldo's second-leg hat-trick that sent the Merengues into the semi-finals where they  knocked out Man City. Locked away at 0-0 after their clash at the Etihad, Real came through in a tight affair at the Bernabéu with a dramatic 1-0 victory.
Cristiano Ronaldo limped off the pitch during Tuesday’s training session but the Portugues start is expected to be fully fit for the final. Raphael Varane will miss the final and Euro 2016 with a thigh injury. Otherwise Zinedine Zidane can select his strongest XI. Gareth Bale and Benzema will partner Ronaldo upfront while Casemiro, Modric and Toni Kroos will start in midfield.
Atletico Madrid finished third in the standings, three points adrift of champions FC Barcelona and just two behind Real. They won 28 of 38 league games, drawing four and losing six with 63 goals scored. They have overcome two world class teams in Barcelona and Bayern Munich en route to the finals and they conceded just 18 goals in La Liga – one of the best records on the entire continent. It's very hard to play a scintillating football against this Atletico and they are one of the toughest team to beat in today's football.
The Colchoneros have no players missing through injury or suspension and Diego Simeone is likely to select the same XI that started against Celta Vigo in their last league match. Midfielders Koke and Augusto Fernandez are in contention to start alongside Gabi in the middle of the park while Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres are expected to lead the line.
This season, the Colchoneros have already frustrated Real on two occasions. In October, the first came when Simeone's men snatched a 1-1 draw at the Vicente Calderon, while the second occurred when they beat the Galacticos 1-0 at their own turf. The last four meetings between the sides had witnessed under 2.5 goals. Half of these sides’ last 12 matches have ended level.
In 2014, the Madrid rivals met in Lisbon when Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid won their 10th UCL trophy. A Sergio Ramos goal on 93 minutes dashed Atléti’s hopes and sent the game to extra time, where Real Madrid scored three in the last 10 minutes to win 4-1.

Probable lineups:
Atletico Madrid: Oblak – Juanfran, Gimenez, Lucas Hernandez, Filipe Luis – Gabi, A.Fernandez, Saul Niguez, Koke – Griezmann, F.Torres.
Real Madrid: Navas – Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo – Modric, Casemiro, Kroos – Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo.

Having finished 7th in the Italian Serie A standings, Milan require a Coppa Italia triumph in order avoid a third straight season without European football. The untested manager Cristian Brocchi has seen the Rossoneri show little improvement in his six matches in charge with just two wins to his name.

Cristian Brocchi will be missing left-back Luca Antonelli with a leg injury while right-back Ignazio Abate is listed as doubtful. M'Baye Niang could be in contention after almost three months out. Alessio Romagnoli and Davide Calabria are expected to start in midfield, while Giacomo Bonaventura and Keisuke Honda are likely support Carlos Bacca and Mario Balotelli in attack.
Juventus team claimed a record-equalling fifth consecutiveScudetto this season and signed off on their 2015/16 Italian Serie A campaign with an emphatic 5-0 win at home against Sampdoria last weekend. They have won 24 of their last 25 league fixtures before a surprising defeat to Hellas Verona two weeks ago.
Allegri is unable to count upon key centre-back Leonardo Bonucci due to suspension while midfielder Sami Khedira is still out through injury. Patrice Evra and Alex Sandro fighting out for a spot on the left flank, while Stefano Sturaro could be given a start in the middle of the park. Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic are likely to lead the line. Claudio Marchisio is a long-term absentee.
In recent meeting between the two sides, Juventus has won 7 consecutive matches. The Rossoneri lost both encounters with Juventus this season, going down 1-0 in Turin before a 2-1 defeat at San Siro.

Liverpool vs Sevilla - Competition: UEFA Europa League Final
For the second time in his first season as Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp will lead his side out for a major final. Last time they came up short, losing a penalty shootout in the COC Final. The Reds just ended a disappointing domestic campaign that saw them finish 8th in the table, so this is their last chance to win silverware this season. Their UEL form remains solid and they produced a sensational fightback to oust bookmakers favourites Borussia Dortmund in the quarter-finals and knocked out Manchester United and Villarreal on the road to Basel.
Kolo Toure will partner Lovren at the back, Can and Milner will start in midfield and Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge will make up an exciting attacking unit. Mamadou Sakho is ruled out through suspension while Divock Origi suffered an ankle ligament injury in the Merseyside Derby last month and will miss the match. The likes of Joe Gomez, Danny Ings and Jordan Rossiter all miss out for the Reds.
Saturday's 3-1 defeat at the hands of Athletic Bilbao means that Sevilla side ended the season seventh in La Liga, eight points behind the final Europa League qualification spot. Unai Emery's have been the dominant force in this competition, winning the UEFA Europa League in the last two years and no less than four times over the past decade. Anyway, Sevilla team outfit  failed to win in their last nine league matches and ended the season with no wins in win any of their away games in La Liga, collecting just nine points. Furthermore, they lost all three of their group stage games in the UEFA Champions League and won just one of their four away Europa League matches, losing to Norwegian side Molde.
Gameiro is expected to lead the line in a 4-2-3-1 formation, while Coke, Banega and Vitolo are likely to play as offensive midfielders. Former Stoke City Steven N'Zonzi and Grzegorz Krychowiak will start in the middle of the park. Michael Krohn-Dehli recently sustained a horrific knee injury and misses out, with Jose Antonio Reyes joining the Dane on the sidelines. Benoit Tremoulinas is missing with a knee injury as well as former Inter defender Marco Andreolli.
Probable lineups:
Liverpool: Mignolet – Clyne, K. Toure, Lovren, Moreno – Lallana, E.Can, Milner, Coutinho – Roberto Firmino, Sturridge.
Sevilla: Soria – Mariano, Carrico, A. Rami, Escudero – N’Zonzi, Krychowiak – Coke, Banega, Vitolo – Gameiro.

Tottenham vs Southampton
Competition: Premier League
Date: 8 May 2016 - Time: 13:30 BST
Venue: White Hart Lane, London 
Monday night’s 2-2 draw away against Chelsea team decisively ended Tottenham’s hopes of winning the title. They must now refocus because they suddenly find themselves fighting to retain second place in the table. Bitter rivals Arsenal are just three points behind them. Spurs have won 10 and lost just one of their last 15 English Premier League fixtures (D4). Furthermore, they have won six of their last nine in the league at White Hart Lane.
Nabil Bentaleb remains the only absentee from Tottenham's first-team squad while Dele Alli and Mousa Dembele are both suspended. Ryan Mason could deputise alongside Eric Dier in the double-pivot, with Heung-Min Son, Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela likely to form the attacking midfield trio behind lone striker Harry Kane once again. Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld are both available after recovering from injuries picked last time out.
Southampton team come into this fixture off the back of a hugely impressive 4-2 victory at home against Man City last weekend. They have only lost to leaders Leicester in their last eight matches and they are chasing European football for next season as back-to-back wins has moved them to within three points of Man United, albeit having played a game more.
Boss Ronald Koeman could name an unchanged side as Florin Gardos is his only injury concern.  Sadio Mane, Steven Davis and Dusan Tadic look likely to form the attacking midfield trio. Graziano Pelle was dropped from the matchday squad against Man City and may be left out once again, leaving Shane Long to operate as the lone striker once again. Jay Rodriguez will be hoping for minutes having come off the bench last weekend. Cuco Martina may again get the nod ahead of Cedric Soares at right-back.
Tottenham have now won seven and lost just one of their last nine matches against the South Coast club (W7-D1-L1) including a 2-0 win at St Mary's in December in which Kane and Alli scored in the space of three minutes just before half time.
Probable lineups:
Tottenham: Lloris – Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies – Dier, Mason – Lamela, Eriksen, Son – Harry Kane.
Southampton: Forster – Soares, van Dijk, Fonte, Bertrand – Wanyama, Clasie – Mane, Davis, Tadic – Long.

The sides are separated by just one goal, after Saul Niguez's brilliant strike at the Vicente Calderon gave Atletico Madrid the 1-0 success. Bayern Munchen put their Bundesliga title celebrations on hold at the weekend as the Bavarians drew with Monchengladbach 1-1.

Anyway, the Colchoneros have kept a clean sheet in 7 of their last 9 UCL matches.
Jan Oblak, Jose Gimenez, Juanfran Torres and Gabi Fernandez were the only players to keep their places in the starting XI on Saturday as Diego Simeone also rested his star men.

Manchester United vs Leicester City - Competition: English Premier League
Man United team enter the match with momentum on their side after beating Everton in the English FA Cup Semifinals on Sunday. They are locked in a titanic battle with Arsenal and Man City for the final Champions League places. They have won six straight league matches at Old Trafford and haven't conceded there in 381 minutes since beating Arsenal 3-2 on Feb. 28. The Red Devils have only conceded seven goals at home in the league all season.
Louis van Gaal may name an unchanged side even if the likes of Juan Mata, Schneiderlin and Herrera will all be pushing for recalls having been left out against the Toffees last time out. Jesse Lingard and Martial look set to continue out wide, with Marcus Rashford starting as the lone striker. Luke Shaw, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Will Keane remain sidelined. Phil Jones stepped up his return to the first-team squad with the U21s in midweek and may come into consideration.
Leicester City team head into Sunday’s game on the back of their stunning 4-0 win over Swansea at the King Power Stadium last weekend, a victory that have seen them moving seven points clear of Tottenham at the top of the league table with three games left. Leicester have won 6 of their last 7 league matches and kept a clean sheet in 6 of the last 7 as well.
Claudio Ranieri will again be without Jamie Vardy for the trip to Old Trafford. Ulloa could fill in once again following his brace, although the striker is suffering from a back injury and will be assessed closer to the time. Jeffrey Schlupp started on the left of the 4-4-1-1 formation last weekend, and may keep his place ahead of Marc Albrighton. Newly-crowned PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater and N’Golo Kante are expected to form the rest of the midfield, with Shinji Okazaki operating in the support striker role.
The reverse fixture this season ended in a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium as Schweinsteiger cancelled out Vardy's opener - a goal that saw Vardy score in a record 11th consecutive league game. Manchester United have won their last 6 home matches against Leicester in all competitions.
