After visiting Neptune for the sixth time since Diego Forlán’s extra-time match-winner against Fulham in 2010 and receiving the god’s blessing, los Rojiblancos are ready to face off against rivals Real Madrid in the Champions League Final. Lisbon’s Estadio da Luz is set to host the biggest derbi madrileño of all time this Saturday at 20:45 CET.
Atlético enter Sunday’s league encounter versus Real Sociedad having experienced a panoply of emotions in the days and hours leading up to the match (19:00 CET). To the elation of the Rojiblanco faithful, qualification to the semifinals of the Copa del Rey was secured after a spirited comeback effort in San Mamés on Tuesday. The
Saturday was a sad day for Atlético supporters. Luis Aragonés passed away.
The most prolific midfielder to have played for Atlético Madrid was a country-wide legend for having led the Spanish National Team out of decades of mediocrity into the golden age it presently finds itself in.
