Atlético de Madrid will complete the remainder of their preparations for Saturday’s Champions League final far from the pressure of the Spanish capital. The Rojiblancos will rest and train away from the prying eyes of the press at Los Ángeles de San Rafael – a residential zone near Segovia some 70 kilometres north of Madrid.

Atlético have used the facilities before – most recently, last year when Simeone decided to escape the capital to concentrate on the team’s preparations ahead of last year’s Copa del Rey final.

The squad arrived shortly after 20:30 hours this evening and while temperatures in the capital have dropped this week, at Los Ángeles de San Rafael, it is a brisk 3 degrees Celsius. Atlético will remain at their temporary training facilities until Friday morning when they will travel on to Lisbon to hold one last pre-match training session, the first 15 minutes of which will be open to the international media, at the Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica.

During their stay at Los Ángeles de San Rafael, Simeone’s preparations will include daily training and video sessions together with individual motivational talks with each member of the squad.
