Madrid, May 26 (IANS) Argentine football great Mario Kempes has predicted that Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in Milan will be an “even and nice” game.
The top scorer of the 1978 FIFA World Cup told media outlets on Wednesday that he thinks there is no favourite in the final, as both teams have a fifty-fifty chance, reports Efe.
Kempes recalled that Atletico lost the Champions League final against Real Madrid two years ago in Lisbon, but he believes the Rojiblancos have learnt their lesson and will not repeat the mistakes.
The former Valencia star maintained both finalists deserve to claim the title.
Kempes said that Real Madrid should win the title in terms of their history, while Atletico should lift the cup in terms of their performance.
