The UEFA Champions League Final is undoubtedly the biggest fixture in club football across the globe and this year it will be between Juventus and Real Madrid at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. The Italian champions face the Spanish champions as they both look to end their great seasons on massive high notes and what better way to do it than with the Champions League trophy. Juventus can complete the treble after winning Serie A and the Coppa Italia while Real Madrid can confirm the double after they won La Liga.


  • Juventus are the only unbeaten side in this season’s Champions League as they won 4 of their 6 group fixtures as well as 5 of their 6 knockout games. They eased past Monaco in the semi-final as they came out 4-1 aggregate winners after a 2-0 away win took the tie out of Monaco’s reach. They’ve only conceded 3 times during the 12 games they’ve played.
  • Real Madrid have only lost once in this year’s competition and the loss came in the second-leg of the semi-final tie with Atletico as they had done more than enough in the first-leg to see them through. The tie ended 4-2 and means Los Blancos have scored 32 goals in just 12 games in the Champions League this season.
  • It’s at the defensive end of the pitch where Juventus have made a name for themselves this season and they haven’t scored too many but their top scorer, Gonzalo Higuaín (5 goals), scored two vital goals to see off Monaco in the semi-final.
  • There’s no prizes for guessing that Cristiano Ronaldo is Real Madrid’s top scorer in the Champions League this season with 10 goals and a goal in the final would tie him alongside Lionel Messi as the competition’s top goal scorer this season.


Real Madrid will be hoping to break their poor run of form against Juventus in recent years as they’ve only beaten the Italian giants once in the last 8 attempts and it was Juventus who knocked Real Madrid out in the semi-finals two years ago. Both teams have scored in the last 5 meetings.


A win in this huge game would top off a great season perfectly for Massimiliano Allegri and Juventus after they’ve already done the domestic double. But it’s Allegri, the manager, who’s picked up a knock going into the game as he injured his right leg in a charity match! The only player that will definitely miss the game for the Old Lady is Marko Pjaca, who has been injured since March with a cruciate ligament injury.

After confirming the La Liga title on the final day of the season, it would be a perfect end to another great season under Zinedine Zidane if they could become the first team to retain the Champions League trophy since its format change. Madrid had a few injuries going into the end of the season but Gareth Bale and Daniel Carvajal have recently returned back to full training, providing a huge boost. Although, Bale himself has revealed that he probably won’t start the final in his home country. Pepe will miss the game with a  fractured rib he sustained in April.

Arguably the two greatest teams in European football this season across all competitions lock horns in Wales to decide who will have the title of champions of Europe whilst earning a place in the Club World Cup in December. Real Madrid are known for their sheer quality going forward while Juventus are the best side in the word defensively and as both sides will look to cancel each other out, it could go either way. It will most likely be decided by a one-goal margin but it could end all square after 90 minutes which will test the sides’ ability to keep calm under pressure which Real Madrid showed last season as they beat rivals, Atletico, on penalties in the final. It looks like this could be one of the great Champions League finals between two incredibly talented teams.
