Despite dropping a 2-1 Wednesday game-two road decision to Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid won their UEFA Champions League semifinal series against their crosstown rivals 4-2 on aggregate and advanced to the Champions League final against Juventus, set to be played at Millennial Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, June 3 at 11:45 AM Pacific Time.
The defending champs will be aiming to become the first club to win back-to-back European club titles since AC Milan in 1989 and 1990, and their 12th title overall while the Bianconeri will look to win their third title, and first since 1996.
The winner of the final will play in the FIFA Club World Cup, set to be staged this coming December in the United Arab Emirates.
