This stadium, known as the Stadium of Light, has the capacity to accommodate 65,000 spectators. The league is between the Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid. It is queer that the teams from the same city compete in the league. In fact it will be a history in the foot ball tournament.

After the Real Madrid vs. Valencia 2000 final, this is the 2nd all Spanish final. It is also the 5th final between teams represented by the sons of the same soil; earlier incidents being Italy (2003), England (2208) and Germany (2013). This is the 4th Champions League final for the Real Madrid’s present coach Carlo Ancelotti he earlier coached Milan to win in 2007 and 2003 but defeat in 2005.

In a long span of 40 years, Atletico Madrid was able to achieve this first European Cup final, after the defeat of Chelsea (the 2012 champions) on 3 – 1 aggregate.  Atletico Madrid reached their first European Cup final in 40 years after defeating 2012 champions Chelsea 3–1 on aggregate.

This is the lengthiest wait of 40 years from 1974 between two finals has eclipsed the earlier 38 (1972–2010) years wait by Internazionale. Previously, in the 1974 European Cup final, Atlético Madrid’s participation ended up in defeat, after a replay to Bayern Munich. If they play well to win the Champions League, they will be joining the other four clubs, which have won the 3 main European clubs competitions. Such clubs are Ajax. Juventus, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.

Earlier, both the clubs have played in European competitions in derby matches.

Every lover of the foot ball game around the world is anxiously waiting to see the 2014 Champions League Final Kick Off Time and enjoy the wonderful match.
