Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has warned Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain not to let their friendship lull him into a false sense of security for next month's Champions League final, and insisted "sparks are going to fly" in Cardiff.

Real looked to continue their control of midfield in the second half and Atletico coach Diego Simeone responded with a double change replacing Torres and Gimenez with Thomas Partey and Kevin Gameiro.

"I became a man and a better player at Juve". "It's clear that the hearts of some of these players we have are so big that they transmit passion to their teammates and push them in the moments of difficulty and in the complex situations of a match".

Zidane guided Real to another Champions League final having won last year's addition against Atletico Madrid, the same team Los Blancos defeated over two legs in the last fortnight.

"We'll go there with everything we've got and we'll fight to produce a good performance to finish the season strongly".

However, one factor that threatens to halt Atletico's progress is a ban preventing them from signing new players until January.

"After the game I asked Benzema how he was able to do that, but he didn't know either", Zidane said. The price for a home win does not exactly appeal as much as for a Real Madrid victory and both teams to score is available at a more temping 9/10 (1.90) .

"Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus - there's a lot of money that's come into the English game, but all the English teams seem to be in a transition".

Real Madrid have three La Liga matches in the next two weeks, and if they win all three then they will win the league crown.

Atletico were inspired by a sensational atmosphere on their last ever Champions League game at the Vicente Calderon before moving to the new 67,000 capacity Wanda Metropolitano next season.

"We're in this position because of how we've worked all season but we want to keep working and think about what we have left to do".
