Tonight’s the night. The roles have been metered out. Two rival sides; polar opposites in terms of identity; Real: the immaculate, arrogant landed gentry, steeped in pomp and circumstance; Atletico: the pub car-park brawlers with gravel in their guts and spit in their eyes, ready to jump off bridges for their charismatic ring-leader.
The Estadio da Luz may well bear witness to incredible sporting theatre. It just as may well be a bloodbath (or a lukewarm, 0-0 general anaesthetic of a game – but let’s not dwell on that possibility for too long!).
It’s time for your predictions, people. Feel free to be as specific as you like. There will be a whole shed-load of Pies Points™ on offer to the winner.
Pies predicts: Real Madrid 3-3 Atletico Madrid after extra-time, Atletico win on penalties. The world goes nuts.
