On a side note, Bale failed to impress on the biggest stage he's ever going to play on and I stand by what I said earlier about Modric! LVG sign him up sir!!!!!"

Adam says: "Fully deserved The goal was coming I know I've been saying this all night but I can see Real Madrid running away with this in extra time brilliant final." You have to say they now have the momentum, can Atletico rally?

Modric tees up Bale but he shoots wide with a low effort from the edge of the box. That's the second chance he's had.

Watched them a lot before this season and they are a TEAM not costly individuals !!!!!!! Cha Ching... " Wow, good luck Paul, the drinks are on you!
Christian says: "I just cant wait for second half to start,i am seeing real Madrid strongly attacking and forgeting to defend! though with chance,for each goal atletico scores, real will score a double!"
Adam says: "Very good defensive first half from athletico my 2nd half Predection is 3-1 Real Madrid " I agree, they are a tough nut to crack, solid and then with a great keeper, it will need some magic from Ronaldo or Bale I feel....
Katy says: "Come on Real, got the Atletico goal I needed don't want them to score anymore or all bets down minimum of 2 goals off Real needed, wish me luck!" Good luck Katy, I also predicted two goals for Real in a 2-1 success!!
Chris says: "The game isn't over by any stretch of the imagination - so I hope Simeone's men don't sit back in the second period, as Real have gone close to scoring on a few occasions." Yes but I fancy Atletico now, they are well organised as long as they don't give the ball away like Tiago did to Bale....
Fancy a bet? Sky Bet now go 4/1 for a Real win, 9/4 for the draw and 4/6 for an Atletico victory. What are your views / predictions for the second half? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post up the best when I get back with my brew!

Casillas comes to claim the ball after it's cleared then headed back into the area and the keeper then tracks back and tries to claw the ball out of his net but it is rightly adjudged to have crossed the line. Game on!!!
Michael says: "Handbags! Did we all really expect anything less in the Madrid derby! Still real for the win! But two red cards before 90 mins are up!! Worth a cheeky fiver!!!" Chris says: "Losing Costa to injury - arguably their best player - is a bitter blow, but I still believe that Simeone's men have enough quality to produce a shock result. Anything is possible in finals, regardless of whether you're the underdogs or not - so nothing can ruled out."
Tiago plays the ball square across midfield and makes a mistake, passing straight to Bale. He runs into the box and shoots from 12 yards in the centre but puts his shot wide. It is the first clear chance of the game and perhaps Bale was put off by Tiago tracking back.
Juanfran crosses from five yards on the right and Lopez hits a shot from 12 yards but Real clear after a bit of pinball.

Gabi and Coentrao tussle on the right flank for a Atletico free-kick near the halfway line. There is a bit of afters, quickly broken up by team-mates. Atletico punt the ball forward to Real clear.
Christian says: "Michael i agree with you, hope vaan gal wont make a mistake of letting Shaw go to Madrid,because that kid has potential to being the best 4 years from now." Luke, Isle of Wight, says: "looks like my £20 on Costa to score first is down the drain." Too true mate, it was always a doubt unless he scored quickly...

Aaron has been back in touch to say: "Okay, I'd like to see Bale lift the trophy and dedicate it to all the help he received at Spurs, better? Haha" Slightly better Aaron!
Katy says: "I've covered myself with bets on Real to win 2-1, 3-1, 4-1 and 5-1. Can't pick a first goalscorer as both teams have amazing goal records, should be an easy win for Real though. Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale up front, amazing."
Michael Widdas from Manchester has entered the Modric debate. He says: "As a massive Man U fan, I would like nothing better than signing modric! Perfect for where we need to be in midfield! We should have bought him while he was at spurs! I think he is a hidden talisman for any team! Real to win 4-0 for me by the way! Ronaldo all 4!!!!!"
Chris has been back in touch to say: "I'm loving every second of this fascinating debate. Keep up the good work guys!" Just five or so minutes left now Chris before the action gets underway....!
Matthew says: "I gone for a Real 2-0 win with Bale as the first goalscorer at about 35/1." Almost great minds think alike - I'm 2-1 with Bale to score first, we shall see, there's not long to go now!!
Christian says: "Rob you are soo wrong, you dont know what Ronaldo is capable of doing, i personally was there when i witnessed Ronaldo rise on the grandest of stages to score all goals agains sweden, to make it worse i was there for zlatan,but i guess you know what happened!"
Timal says: "Mighty Real vs Giant Killing Atheletico. Past few years Barca or team defeated Barca won this. But I back Real 2-1 win today. With Benzema , Ronaldo & Koke to Score. Come on Ancelotti." Cheers Timal, enjoy the game!
Lakshay says: "Any odds on Costa going off injured in the first 30 mins? have a sneaky feeling he won't make it to the 2nd half !!" I agree, he could easily come off early on with his hamstring, same with Ronaldo though as well..good luck with your odds search!!
Christian has been back in touch to say: "Its high time to regard Modric as one of the world's best midfielders, and i think today will be his day to shine on the grandest of stages! What do you think about Modric?" I agree, he is a top player. Any other views - send them to email@example.com
Aaron says: "As an Arsenal fan, I'd love to see Bale lift the trophy, just to remind Spurs what they let go. I think Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema can muster a goal or 3 between them! Surely!" Now now Aaron, surely you could be more gracious after just lifting a cup yourself!
Rob has been back in touch to say: "I know that Ronaldo is a good player, but is he as good a goal scorer as people say? He's got 16 in champions league and only 31 in BBVA (same as Suarez in harder league). I think Ronaldo has been the reason real have LOST the league this year . Hasn't scored anywhere near enough. But he's done well in champions league - hint a place in Final." Wow, that is controversial Rob, any views on this everyone?
Reuben says: "I think that Atletico will be wanting to win it more and will thwart any Real Madrid counter attacks with their high work rates. 2-0 to Atletico with costa to score both!" Cheers Reuben, enjoy the game!
Iain has been back in touch to say: "Not sure about Robs comment about no pressure on Althletico they have never won the CL? Being the best team in Spain is one thing, being Champions of Europe is a whole different ball game! Bale will flourish tonight, may even score a brace." Cheers Iain, I think Real need this more...if Atletico lose, their fans will still think it has been a good season winning the title, while Real fans will be more disappointed.
Christian in France says: "Personally i am more than sure Real will win the final,Benzema to score a hat trick and atletico to score 2,end in extra time...."
Rob says: "Think Athletico will win tonight. Athletico will sit back, try and keep it tight, and will try and pick real off on the break. Athletico are the champions already. There's little pressure on them. . 2-1. Costa with one, Turan with the other . Ronaldo pen for real "
Nat says: "The pressure is mainly on Real after failing to win La Liga but I can imagine an Athletico win with both teams scoring. Prediction: 2-3, Benzema, Ronaldo (Real), Koke, Costa and Garcia (Athletico) to score. In reply to Chris' question, I do agree that Bale has been an excellent player all year but I would assume that he'll be outshone when it comes to playing tonight." Cheers for that comprehensive post Nat, enjoy the game! Any more views on Chris' question about Bale? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Nick, Walthamstow, says: "I think Ronaldo will want to put the memory of Rome to bed. Hattrick for Ronaldo and a Bale goal."
MY VIEW - I think Real will have too much for Atletico tonight, but it will be tight. So a 2-1 win with Bale to score first, which pays a handsome 35/1 with Sky Bet! What are your views / predictions for tonight's game? Send them to email@example.com
Chris has been back in touch to ask: "Do you rate Bale as one of the best players in the world?" There's no doubt about it Chris, yes! But will he produce on this stage? Personally I think, any other views? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Mohammed says: "I think this game will be even sided but I think Athletico will win 1-0 or 2-1. Pressure is on Real, but I hope they entertain and win by a big margin as well." I agree, the pressure is on Real - how will they respond?
Iain from Northampton, a Spurs fan, says: "Great spectacle of football coming up. I would luv to see Bale lift the trophy tonight, what a difference a year makes for the Welsh wizard! I predict 1-0 to Althletico half time and 2-1 to Real, Bale & Ronaldo one each." Cheers Iain, looking at that Real team, with Bale and Modric in it, made me think if only you could have kept hold of the pair...
Adam says: "Really think that this final will be one sided can only see one winner 5-0 Real Madrid." Wow, that indeed would be a shock, 150/1 with Sky Bet!
Teams - Real: Casillas, Carvajal, Varane, Sergio Ramos, Coentrao, Modric, Khedira, Di Maria, Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo. Subs: Diego Lopez, Pepe, Marcelo, Arbeloa, Morata, Isco, Illarramendi.

One of our regulars, Chris Green from Huddersfield, has been in touch to say: "Real Madrid may be the bookies' favourites to come out on top this evening, but I see their cross-city rivals springing a surprise. Prediction: Real Madrid 1-2 Atletico Madrid." Cheers Chris, enjoy the game!
Ashley says: "As a Chelsea fan I have to support the one man that hasn't hurt us. Want to see Ancelotti lift the title and see Courtois back at the Bridge, ready to redeem himself." I saw the quarter-final against Barcelona in the Nou Camp and Courtois was outstanding, he kept his side in it with some great saves. I think he is ready to be No 1 with Chelsea now, you have to look to the future....
Fancy a bet? Sky Bet go 23/20 for a Real win, 23/10 for the draw and 13/5 for an Atletico victory. Any more views / predictions? Send them to email@example.com

FIRST VIEW - Cian Hughes has been in touch to say: "Hey! Soo exited for this game! I really want Athletico to win this one! It was nice seeing them win La Liga on Saturday, because usually Barca or Real win it, and would really like to see them do the double, I'm going to go for a 2-1 win for Athletico." Cheers Cian, enjoy the game!
But up against this tight defence is the two most expensive players in world football - Bale and Ronaldo.
Atletico have the best defence in this year's competition - conceding just six goals in 12 games - and they are the only unbeaten team.
Atletico Madrid have won four of five cup finals they've played against Real - all in the Copa Del Rey.
Welcome to Lisbon where Real Madrid face city rivals Atletico for European football's biggest club prize. Who will prevail tonight? Send your views / predictions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post up the best throughout the evening.
