- Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak comes out on top against Keylor Navas
- Sergio Ramos and Diego Godin will both hold their defences steady

Cristiano Ronaldo has struggled with fitness this week but could be the man to make an impact for Real, just as Antoine Griezmann can be the difference for Atletico.
Here, Sportsmail rates both sets of players in each position as Zinedine Zidane and Diego Simeone prepare for battle in Milan.
The Real Madrid players gear up for Saturday's Champions League final against rivals Atletico Madrid
Diego Simeone gives instructions to his Atletico players as they trained at the San Siro on Thursday evening
Keylor Navas 8
Great shot stopper who has only conceded against two sides in the entire tournament. Not as commanding in the air as his rival.
Dani Carvajal 8
Spain’s number two right-back but surely only a matter of time before he becomes number one. Superb going forward with a great final ball and improving defensively.
Sergio Ramos 9
For all the occasional lapses in concentration, even the ones that end in a red card, you would still want this man in your team – especially for an injury time equalizer.
Sergio Ramos does have his off moments but when called upon he usually produces a sound, steady display
Much maligned for little indiscretions – like trying to kick Getafe’s Casquero and picking up a ten game ban – but he remains a very effective defender.
Got the third goal two years ago and remains a wonderful attacking full-back, but one who will always be susceptible especially in the air at the back post.
Gareth Bale 9
Always delivers in final. Scored the winner in the Copa del Rey final against Barcelona in 2014. Then got the crucial second goal in the Champions League final two months later. Also scored in the World Club Cup final and assisted Ronaldo in the European Super Cup final in Cardiff.
Gareth Bale wheels away in celebration after scoring Real's second goal during the win over Atletico Madrid in the 2014 Champions League final
Simeone must have been on a bet in his press conference. If he mentioned Casemiro once he must have mentioned him ten times. He does a very important job but he is in the team every game because he is the only one who can do it. Possible weakness.
Toni Kroos 7
Wasted in holding midfield and now given greater freedom to attack because of the presence of Casemiro. Delivers a wonderful corner.
Luka Modric 8
Speaking of delivering wonderful corners – Modric was the man who put the ball on Ramos’ head two years ago. A special player who could really be the key.
Cristiano Ronaldo has struggled with fitness this week but will be ready for the test of Atletico on Saturday
Cristiano Ronaldo 9
Disappointing in the final in 2014 but he says that was because he was nursing a hamstring problem. Says he is 100 per cent fit this time so Atletico beware.
Karim Benzema 9
He’s not going to the Euros so this is his last game of the season. Will want to make it count and make Didier Deschamps sorry for not taking him. And he’ll want another Champions League winners medal of course.
Zinedine Zidane 8
The league table from the day he took over would have Real Madrid top. All the charm we expected but he has also brought plenty of impressive pragmatism too.
Total Real Madrid rating: 97
Zidane is in his first season as manager of Real and wants to end it on high note on Saturday evening in Milan
Jan Oblak 9
What is it about Atletico Madrid and keepers? The lose De Gea and get Courtois; they have to send Courtois back but now have Oblak for keeps. He looks as reliable as anything around.
One of the real success stories of this incredible Atletico team. Juanfran was an average winger before Simeone turned him into the most reliable right-back in the business.
Diego Godin 9
Every bit the hero Ramos is. Got the goal that won the league for Atletico two years ago. And what a defender. Holds this team together and the good news for Simone is that his leader is fit again.
Jan Oblak will be the man Atletico will call on to be their saviour behind their defensive line on Saturday night
Jose Maria Gimenez 7
Godin’s successor both at Atletico Madrid and for Uruguay, whose incredible ability to produce top players from its 3million population shows no sign of abating. Still only just 21 though, so lack of experience will be a test.
Filipe Luis 8
Why did it not work out for him at Chelsea? All the nous of a top defender and with the necessary nastiness too, he is thriving back under Simeone.
Saul Niguez 8
Manchester United want him and it’s not difficult to see why. Would be worthy of their number seven shirt in a Bryan Robson sort of way. Still young but can do everything – including scoring a brilliant goal against Bayern in the Champions League semi-final.
Filipe Luis has really shone at Atletico this season and this final game of the season could be a defining one
Works unselfishly in midfielder – another like Juanfran who just a few seasons ago looked a good player in an ordinary team – at Zaragoza – nothing more.
Augusto Fernandez 7
Only brought in in January but looks like he has been playing for Simeone for years. Very aggressive, wins the ball back with great intensity. A quiet but massively effectively winter signing.
Will play wide left but play very narrow to give Atletico a real midfield numerical advantage. Slowly being overtaken by Saul but still a real talent.
