Chiellini: Juve better than 2015 Champions League final loss

Tuesday, 30 May, 2017

Deb Barber, Chief Executive Officer of Cardiff Airport said: "The UEFA Champions League final is a huge event for Wales, and the arrival of Iberia Express as a new airline with a brand new service to Madrid couldn't come at a more appropriate time". He scored 14 of his 40 goals so far this season in the last 40 days, when, unlike in the previous season, he could begin the last matches reasonably rested.

"There's only one Champions League like there's only one Super Bowl and what matters is being in the right place at the right time".

Juventus and Real Madrid have been informed of the decision.

But Allegri feels not enough has been made of the achievement in reaching the final and does not want to worry about such negative thoughts.

Sami Khedira returned in Juve's final game of the season after picking up an injury in the semi-finals against Monaco, while Mario Mandzukic should also be fit to start.

Real, meanwhile, won the trophy in 2014 and again last season, beating city rivals Atletico in the final on each occasion.

Amidst the wide gamut of things that Zidane had to manage was an aging Ronaldo.

TONI KROOS: Another important link between defense and attack, Kroos maintained his excellent form for yet another season. "It will be a lovely final between two big teams in the world and I just hope that Real Madrid can win this wonderful trophy", Figo said on the sidelines of the Premier Futsal announcement in Dubai, on Sunday.

French striker Karim Benzema showed he's a man of many talents as he played the piano whilst winding down at home.

"They're used to playing the final, as we are".

CRISTIANO RONALDO: Ronaldo has arrived at the final stretch of the season at his best, after pacing himself and skipping several games to get some rest. Similarly, Alvaro Morata's 15 league goals highlight how the entire pool of players was perfectly utilised by Zidane, with 20 players playing 1,000 or more league minutes for the Spanish Champions.

Having finished four points clear of second-placed Roma in Serie A, and won a record third consecutive Italian Cup with a comfortable 2-0 win over Lazio, Juve are now looking to emulate Inter Milan, Italy's last treble winners in 2010 under Jose Mourinho.

However, his experience as one of the greatest players of his generation has given him a huge advantage over his predecessors at the Bernabeu with the respect he commands from an ego-filled dressing room.
