Milan's San Siro prepares to host a Spanish invasion on Saturday evening as Real Madrid meet city rivals Atletico in the Champions League final.

It is the second time in three years that the two teams have met in the final. In 2014, Real Madrid won 4-1 after extra-time in Lisbon.

Speaking to Off the Ball on Thursday evening, Graham Hunter admitted he expected a reverse of the Lisbon result and Diego Simeone's side will win their first European title. They have previously lost their last two finals.

"Everything has improved, two years on", Hunter admitted about the Atletico team. "I think they'll edge it by a goal... I just have a fancy for Atletico... I think they will win it by a goal and I think (Fernando) Torres will score."

The Spanish-based journalist was quick to point out, that despite his fancy for Atletico to win, he would not be surprised if Real went on to win their eleventh title. 

"Would I be surprised if Ronaldo or Bale or Benzema produces and Real Madrid do it? No I wouldn't be surprised at all".

Compared to extra-time in 2014, Hunter thinks the Simeone-managed team "won't fall over".

An intriguing evening awaits...
