Former Manchester United manager Ron Atkinson has exclusively told GiveMeSport that he believes Real Madrid will win their 10th Champions League title this weekend.
Carlo Ancelotti's side take on rivals Atletico Madrid on Saturday in a game in which Real Madrid will be chasing La Decima.
Newly-crowned La Liga champions Atletico Madrid finished three points ahead of Real Madrid to win their first domestic league title since 1996.
However Atkinson, who managed Atletico Madrid for three months in the 1988-89 season, believes Real Madrid will get their own back on their neighbours by lifting the prestigious European trophy at Benfica's Estadio de Luz.
"I nailed my colours to the mast on Real Madrid at the start of the campaign and I am not going to change on that," said Atkinson.
"The only proviso is they certainly need Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale fit for the final.
"It will be very tight. It could even go to extra-time and penalties - who knows? But I think it is Real Madrid's year."
Ronaldo has been deemed fit to start against Atletico Madrid despite struggling to shake off a niggling hamstring injury.
The Portuguese superstar was expected to feature in Real Madrid's final league game of the season against Espanyol at the weekend but failed to make the substitutes' bench.
