|had a funny feeling we'd see a thread like this. firstly, the fact its being played in France means SQUAT. its a neutral ground. the same folks whom using this reason are the same ones whom backed them on the road all year long anyways. didnt matter then, doesnt matter here.

my 2 cents:
this is a MAJOR EUROPEAN FINAL; perhaps not as "sexy" as the CL final, but both clubs got here WHILE STILL managing to qualify for europe next year in their domestic leagues. which is not an easy chore, dont care what league one is from.
but also, its a one-off. this is not some 2-legged home & home affair. one boneheaded mistake, red card, or a dumb handball/foul in the penalty area and the match gets turned upside down. over 2 legs?? h*ll yeah, id be all over Madrid.
keep in mind Madrid is a counter-attacking team whom take forever to figure out what to do when their opponent sits back.
the lines are priced right. get a feeling this is gonna be a snoozefest cuz Simeone always reverts back to his comfort zone.
GL for those backing Madrid and will be cheering them on.
PASS for me. better value elsewhere.
