Diego Simeone’s side were thwarted twice by Real on Europe’s grandest stage, the first time in Lisbon in 2014 and then the second in last year’s final in Milan.
And while Atleti performed valiantly on both occasions, Real Madrid supporters still use these games as a stick to beat their rivals with… as they showed prior to tonight’s clash between the Madrid-based clubs.
Real and Atletico are of course playing in tonight’s Champions League semi-final, however, before a ball was even kicked, the Bernabeu faithful unveiled this banner which reads, “Decidme que se siente.”
This of course translates to “tell me how it feels”:

And while Real currently hold the record for winning the most European Cups, Zinedine Zidane’s side look on their way to clinching a 12th title after Cristiano Ronaldo headed the home side in front after 10 minutes.
