Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao Live Tonight For Europa League Finals

The 2012 UEFA Europa League title is at stake tonight for the all-Spanish finals of Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao live from Arena Națională in București starting 7:45 PM BST. Watch the two Primera Liga rivals clash in the Romanian capital and see who will emerge in victory.

Atletico Madrid has so far had an 11-game Europa League winning streak, and will most certainly have the momentum in tonight's game. It's interesting to note though that the Los Colchoneros have never played against Athletic Bilbao before in a European competition.

But the odds are definitely in favor of the capital club, which leads with 64 wins against Athletic's 59 in the 150 domestic league meetings. This will be Atletico's eight major European final.

Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao has won only four of their last 11 matches. They have never even won a a European trophy before. But that doesn't mean they should be taken lightly, because the team will surely be in their best form tonight.

Atletico Madrid is expected to field in Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe; Suarez, Gabi; Adrian, Diego, Turan; Falcao. For Athletic Bilbao, expect to probably see Iraizoz; Iraola, Martinez, Amorebieta, Aurtenetxe; De Marcos, Iturraspe, Herrera; Susaeta, Llorente, Muniain in action.
