Jonas Eriksson will be taking charge of the Champions League final in Milan on May 28, according to Cadena Cope for whistle the end of next May 28 in Milan, according to the radio station Cadena Cope. The Swedish referee has previously had the whistle for three of Real Madrid's games in which they won two and drew once. He has also officiated Atlético twice with a win and a draw being the outcome for the Rojiblancos.

The last game in which he was in charge for Madrid will live in the memory for the fans of Los Blancos. It was the 1-1 semi-final game in last year's Champions League against Juventus. That draw saw Madrid eliminated.

With Atlético, the most recent meeting with Eriksson dates back to April 22, 2014. The Rojiblancos drew the first leg of the semifinals of the Champions League against Chelsea with no goals scored and then took care of the tie in London with a 1-3 victory. This took them through to the all-Madrid final in Lisbon.

So, neither Madrid teams have ever lost with Jonas in charge. That will have to come to an end in Milan.
