UCL final tickets for Madrid legends

Real Madrid are bringing along heroes from their previous nine European Cup wins to Lisbon for Saturday's Champions League final against Atletico Madrid, while the scramble for tickets for the decider continues.

Madrid's squad take the short flight to the Portuguese capital on Thursday evening, having requested the same plane and crew which flew them to Munich last month for the 4-0 semifinal second leg victory which secured a first final place in 12 seasons and a chance to clinch the long-awaited "La Decima" -- their 10th European Cup.

Also on board the plane, says Marca, will be representatives of the club's past successes -- including five-time winner Paco Gento [1956-1960], "Sexto" winner Amancio [1966], goalscoring hero of the "Septima" Predrag Mijatovic [1998], Raul Gonzalez, who netted to secure the "Octova" [2000], and captain of the "Novena" team Fernando Hierro [2002].
