Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid, Copa Del Rey Final: Open Thread

copa del rey final 600x450 Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid, Copa Del Rey Final: Open Thread

Today’s Copa Del Rey Final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid could have a lot of implications for the Premier League.

The match will be Jose Mourinho’s final legacy at Real Madrid, where he has a chance to help the club win their 19th Copa Del Rey trophy. While Real Madrid have two league games remaining after this, the title has already been won by Barcelona, so he’ll want to leave Real Madrid with another piece of silverware.

In Real Madrid’s way though are cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid who are led by star striker Radamel Falcao, who will be the transfer target of several top Premier League sides despite the Colombian saying that he wants to stay at Atletico.

For viewers in the United States, the match will kick-off live at 3:30pm ET on ESPN, ESPN Deportes, ESPN3.com and WatchESPN.

Join the conversation before, during and after the game with soccer fans from around the world in the comments section below.
