Five keys to Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid in Champions League final

A head-to-head comparison of Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone ahead of the UEFA Champions League final.

Saturday's Champions League final pits Zinedine Zidane, a rookie manager, against Diego Simeone, who has created the best-organised team in Europe.

Real Madrid have the superstars, but Atletico Madrid are a superior unit, which should make this a fascinating tactical battle. Here are five key areas where the final will be decided:

1. Real switching play

Atletico are compact not just vertically (from defence to attack) but also horizontally (from left to right). They encourage opposition...

Ronaldo's greatness is unquestioned, but he needs a career-defining moment

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno reports from Milan on the eve of the 2015/16 Champions League final.
ESPN FC's Dan Thomas and Alejandro Moreno give the latest surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo and what will define his career.

"I don't doubt that I will go down in footballing history," Cristiano Ronaldo said earlier this month. "Whether people like it or not, the numbers speak for themselves."

It's tough to argue with that, or to deny his outstanding goal return. But legendary footballers are generally not remembered by numbers. Instead, they're remembered by individual moments.

When Johan Cruyff died earlier this year, obituaries inevitably focused upon his footballing vision and his ability to inspire revolutionary...

Crystal Palace better suited with defensive approach in FA Cup final

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Paul Mariner preview the FA Cup Final between Manchester United and Crystal Palace.

Considering the FA Cup markets itself as the tournament of the underdogs, it has been somewhat overshadowed by Leicester City's remarkable Premier League victory. Nevertheless, a Crystal Palace triumph at Wembley this weekend would be a truly wonderful tale of an underdog shocking a major club -- and complete the most unlikely Community Shield line-up imaginable.

We're getting accustomed to this type of FA Cup final: it is the fourth consecutive contest pitting a huge club against one of the Premier...

Premier League's tactical trends of 2015-16 include the return of the 4-4-2

ESPN FC's Craig Burley looks ahead to next season and whether or not Leicester City can compete for the title again.

The Premier League isn't regarded as the most tactically fascinating division in Europe but it produced one of the most incredible tactical stories imaginable, with Leicester City winning the League with an approach largely based around not having possession. Claudio Ranieri's approach inevitably dominates the tactical trends of 2015-16.

Emphasis upon organisation without possession

Five years ago, the majority of Premier League sides were attempting to dominate possession, inspired by the tiki-taka...

Leicester find success with pressing at Chelsea, Riyad Mahrez pulls strings

Claudio Ranieri spoke of his emotional return to Stamford Bridge, after his side were given a guard of honour by Chelsea.

Leicester produced a late equaliser at Stamford Bridge to win the Premier League by 10 points, in a game that will probably be remembered longer for the tributes to Claudio Ranieri and John Terry than much else.

In some ways, recent history had suggested Leicester might well win the match. They had been the best away side in the division, with 38 points taken, while only Aston Villa had recorded fewer wins at home than Chelsea. Of the five league wins Stamford Bridge has seen this season, four have...

Jermain Defoe, Sam Allardyce deserve praise for Sunderland's late surge

The ESPN FC crew discuss the relegation battle, as the Premier League's bottom clubs fight to survive another season.

Sunderland like leaving it late ... but not too late. For the past two seasons, the Wearsiders have confirmed Premier League survival in their penultimate game, the last Wednesday of the season. Two years ago they defeated West Bromwich Albion 2-0, and last year they recorded a goalless draw at Arsenal. This week, they could make it a hat trick with a victory over Everton.

It says much about the nature of Sunderland that three separate managers have been in charge for each of these three pivotal...
