The rivalry between Los Blancos and Los Colchoneros might escalate a bit more after their European matches in the next few weeks....
Both UEFA tournaments will have a special ingredient this season, as the UEFA Champíons League and UEFA Europa League will include one Spanish contender: Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.
The Spanish capital neighbors will try to beat their opposition in order to make way for an international Madrid derby, but also to achieve something that has only been accomplished once by two inner-city rivals.
24 years ago, Inter Milan and AC Milan claimed European glory in the same year. The neroazzurri won the UEFA Cup against Salzburg, while the rossoneri defeated Barcelona's "Dream Team" in the UEFA Champions League final. That has been the only time in European history in which two teams from the same city have won the two major club competitions in the continent. Now, both Madrid-based sides face the challenge of replicating that feat.
Atlético Madrid will face Olympique Marseille on May 16 in the UEFA Europa League final. Ten days later, Los Blancos will meet against Liverpool in the UCL final showdown. Will any of them claim the trophy?
