Real Madrid are the reigning champions of Spanish La Liga and the most decorated club in Europe, with no less than nine European Champions Cup titles in their trophy cabinet. Los Blancos have beaten mighty Barcelona to the league title last season, while becoming the first Spanish club to reach a 100-point mark during a league campaign.
The Spanish giants are widely regarded as one of the most popular football clubs in the world and currently boast a star-studded line-up led by coach Jose Mourinho. Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo is the number one player on the team sheet, while other star players include Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Mesut Ozil, Karim Benzema, Xabi Alonso and Kaka.
AC Milan have won the European Champions Cup seven times already, the record second only to Real Madrid. The Rossoneri have 18 Serie A titles and 5 Coppa Italia trophies to their name, and they narrowly missed out on the league title last term, after leading the race for much of the season.
The team are orchestrated by talented coach Massimiliano Allegri, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic the only true star in the side. Antonio Cassano, Robinho, Thiago Silva and Alexandre Pato are also considered important members of the squad that are set to undergo major changes this summer. Ricardo Montolivo, Bakaye Traore and Gabriel have already signed for the Rossoneri and the trio, together with other new signings, will have a chance to impress against Real Madrid at Yankee Stadium in New York.
