Experience, they say, is a grade. Perhaps, as he likes to say Simeone “it does not influence a final”, but it does help. That's clear. And the Madrid knows it. Up to 11 players of his current squad could win this Saturday his fourth Champions: Isco, Marcelo, Benzema, Ronaldo, Bale, Modric, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Casemiro and Nacho. They were all in Lisbon -either as starters, as substitutes or as not called-and they lifted their first cup of Europe . Later Milan and later Cardiff would arrive. Now wait Kiev . And everyone can, again, enter the starting lineup. They are part of the fort that has been built Zidane to rise with the 'Orejona' before the summer.
By order, seven were in the eleven to win the Tenth: Sergio Ramos, Varane, Carvajal, Modric, Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema. Then, the team trained him Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid went over Atlético with a goal from the Andalusian central in the 93rd minute and two goals from Gareth, Cristiano and Marcelo in overtime. It was the beginning of the prodigious era of the white set in Europe . Even, Zidane was present-he was the second of the Italian coach. Isco and Marcelo stayed on the bench that day, and Casemiro and Nacho were not called.
After that flash, Milan arrived. Two years later and the same rival, the Atlético de Madrid. And, again, many appeared in the starting lineup. Specifically, eight: Carvajal, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo. Isco jumped in the second half, Nacho was on the bench and Varane was not called. Madrid prevailed on penalties thanks to the maximum penalty ruled by Juanfran – in addition to the penalty missed by Griezmann -.
And after Cardiff . And more of the same. The Madrid won the Twelfth with nine others in the starting line: Marcelo, Ramos, Varane, Carvajal, Modric, Casemiro, Isco, Ronaldo and Benzema. Bale entered the second half and Nacho did not appear. Does not matter. The set of Zidane won his second Champions consecutive with a convincing 1-4 against Juventus (with two goals from Cristiano one of Casemiro and one last of Asensio .
Now, Zidane will try to repeat the same strategy, with many of the protagonists on the bench (or in the eleven) and the certainty of knowing how to build a champion team of Europe will be against Liverpool this Saturday and Kiev . degree and an opportunity to make history: winning his third Champions League consecutive.
