Champions League final starting lineups for Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid

If Atletico Madrid wins today's Champions League final, it won't be because Real Madrid fielded a weakened lineup. The famed BBC is in place with Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo leading the Zinedine Zidane's 4-3-3.

Diego Simeone will counter with what is effectively the exact same 4-4-2 that has gotten him here with the blazing hot Antoine Griezmann alongside the resurgent Fernando Torres, who is enjoying his most productive season since 2009-10.

This promises to be a wonderful chess match as Zidane tries to add to his amazing playing resume by winning a Champions League title in his first managerial campaign. Simeone is also attempting to win his first Champions League title as a player or coach.
