Champions league finals is upon us, greatest event in European football in Cardiff at Millenium stadium will be played between Juventus and Real Madrid on Saturday and i'm sure that we'll watch a great spectacle.
Juventus managed to defend a title in Italian Serie A and in Italian Cup, they didn't had much troubles to continue their domination in Italy but their main goal for this season was Champions league trophy and so far did a great job and only one step are away from great success. Here are facing with another great team which are defending a title here, i'm sure that this will be a great clash and both teams in my opinion are capable to celebrate. Last time they met with Spanish side two seasons ago in Champions league semi finals and had more success, in first leg at home achieved victory while in second at Santiago Bernabeu got a draw and reached finals where were defeated by Barcelona, after two seasons they reached finals once again and have a chance to lift this trophy after 20 seasons. Without any doubts Juventus has one of the strongest defenses in Europe, they proved that in quarter finals against Barcelona where in two games kept a clean sheet against one of the strongest offenses in Europe, tonight will have maybe even harder task to stop great Real but for sure are capable for that. They are without defeat so far in Champions league and fully deserved placement into finals, in previous round were better than Monaco which were really great in this season but in those two games it was obvious that Juventus are more experienced and stronger squad, i believe that now can end domination of Spanish sides in Champions league since in last three seasons only teams from Spain won this title, they are in great form and should be able to confront to a strong Real Madrid. Only midfielder Marko Pjaca (20/1) is injured and will miss this game.
Real Madrid on the other side are had successful season, after four years won the title in Spanish La Liga, in Coppa del Rey didn't had much luck and were eliminated but anyway they were fully focused on La Liga and Champions league, they are playing great offensive football and it will be a real challenge for Juventus to keep a clean sheet. For more than a year they managed to score in every single match, will they manage to extend that great streak we'll see but i have no doubts that this will be a great battle for most important title in Europe. Real Madrid are in good form and i'm sure that won't change their tactics, this is team which always play to score one goal more but it will be difficult against Italian side which showed really impressive skills in defense. Both teams have top class players, big stake is here and both sides are under big pressure, that will probably affect on the game but i hope that this will be nice match to watch. Zidane proved his coaching qualities, since he arrived into the club they achieved really great results, they won Champions league and Spanish Primera and now are very close to achieve historical success and become first team which managed to defend a title in Champions league. In semi finals they eliminated Atletico Madrid, after victory at home with two goals margin they were defeated at Vicente Calderone with only one goal difference and won progress into finals, in quarter finals had really difficult task and faced with German Bayern Munich where after extra time eliminated great side, now must play their football and show pretty good performances but it will be difficult against really great opponents. Defender Daniel Carvajal (36/1) and forward Gareth Bale (26/9) are both in doubt for this match due to injury issues.
This will for sure be a great game, two teams which are among strongest in Europe are facing each other tonight and it's very hard to predict the winner of this match, in my opinion Juventus are slight favorites and i believe that if show great skills like so far can prevent Real Madrid for scoring, i believe that Italians are closer to a victory here in Cardiff.
