#UCLfinal: Legends predict the result

UEFA.com speaks to a number of greats of the game ahead of tonight's match, among them Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Roberto Carlos and Ruud Gullit, to see who they think will win.

Find out what some of the greatest players ever to have graced the game think will happen tonight. Ruud Gullit reckons Real Madrid will win on penalties, but what about Fabio Cannavaro, David Trezeguet, Roberto Carlos and Steve McManaman?

Roberto Carlos, former Real Madrid defender
Real Madrid are the favourites, as they've won ten European Cups. Atlético Madrid are a good team with some good players and a great coach, but I'll go for the club I worked for, the club with which I won three Champions League titles: Real Madrid.

It will be a very tough match, but I think Real Madrid are the favourites, for their history, and for being considered the best team in the world. A tough match, a difficult match but we will win 3-1.

Ruud Gullit, former AC Milan forward
My prediction for the match tonight: it's going to be 1-1. And I think that the penalties will be 5-3. I have no clue why that is, it's still not in my mind, but I think that Real will win it on penalties.

Fabio Cannavaro: former Real Madrid defender
3-1 to Real Madrid
I'm from Naples, and I don't want to bring bad luck, and it is difficult to forecast tonight's final, but I hope this will be the final result. I hope so. Hala Madrid! 

David Trezeguet, former Juventus striker
2-1 to Real. I personally love the attacking trio of Bale-Benzema-Cristiano Ronaldo, they are spectacular. On the other hand, Atlético have a team which always hold their position well and are more physical, but I think football is about attacking and passion. When you've got such quality players up front like Bale, Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, I think they will make the difference.

Steve McManaman, former Real Madrid midfielder
Real Madrid will win 2-0, because they have too many great attack-minded players in their team, and I think they'll overcome Atlético's defence.
