It’s always a special match between these two teams! Real is a giant in Spanish football while Atletico is runner up. For the ‘socios’ from Atletico it is the most important game of the season. All the matches against Real are very special for them. It’s like rich against poor.
This will be the teams first meeting in the final since 1962. Which final were won by Atletico. They were a couple of times together in the final before. In 1960 en 1961 Atletico won and in 1975 Real won the final.
Real Madrid really want’s this titel, because FC Barcelona has already won the Spanish league and both of the giants in Spain are out the Champions League. A season without a price is not done in the white part of Madrid.
Of course Atletico Madrid want’s the price also, and for them it is very important to win from Real.
Friday the 17th of May, a good day for every football fanatic. The Copa del Rey 2013 final, it will be a spectacular match! At the end of this evening there is a winner and sure they are from Madrid. So there must be a party in Madrid anywhere.
