He faced the ‘Mundialito’ without three of his great references in a long list of casualties; with a goal without Thibaut Courtois, a defense without Éder Militao and an attack without Karim Benzema. The last two traveled to Rabat after the win to hurry up their options. They will be doubtful until the end, with greater need in the return of a pure 9, despite the four semifinal goals that shaped a deceptive result after moments of difficulty against Al Ahly.
Away from the focus of the controversy that pursues him in Spain, the most lethal version of the Brazilian Vinícius Junior reappeared. Embraced by all, moving away from conflict and provocations, imposing his football full of impudence. Even the rival coach of the final, the Argentine Ramón Díaz, recommends he to “move away from the extra-football”.
Four years and a month after its last conquest, which meant a record to be the third consecutive of Real Madrid that had closed a stage of the leadership of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Real Madrid team is planted in the final of a competition with great European dominance.
Favoritism is marked by history. Up to 14 of 18 editions conquered by the current Champions League champion. Only Brazil’s Corinthians, Sao Paulo, and Internacional were able to alter the order of world football. Never a team from another continent.

For its part, Al Hilal, in its fourth participation in the tournament, will try to prevent the trophy from going for the tenth consecutive year to Europe and to do so for the first time to Asia.
He earned it by hand. Led by a prestigious coach like Ramón Díaz, he began his journey with doses of suffering against the host Wydad Casablanca (1-1), against whom he needed a penalty shootout to overcome it.
He freed himself from the pressure in the semifinals, consummating the rematch against Flamengo, his executioner in 2019, with a great performance. He exploded to play the second half in superiority after the expulsion of Gérson and won 3-2 with the penalty double of Salem Aldawsari and the goal of a striker with a past in Spain as Luciano Vietto.
With the base of the Saudi Arabian National Team left good moments in the recent World Cup in Qatar, such as the triumph for history before which it would later be proclaimed champion, Argentina, and the addition of foreigners with experience such as Gustavo Cuéllar, the Peruvian André Carrillo, Odion Ighalo, Moussa Marega or Vietto himself, will compete without complexes against Real Madrid on the most important day in its history.
