Champions League Finals: When Will Real Madrid Battle Juventus & How To Watch

Yet while the Italians are so far unbeaten in the Champions League this campaign, Madrid lost for the first time in the competition this term in their last European match, the return leg of their semi-final tie with city rivals Atletico Madrid.

However, the French coach, who has been in charge at Real Madrid for less than 18 months, does have to resolve one issue ahead of Saturday's game: whether to start with Gareth Bale in his side or with midfielder, Isco.

This year you can enjoy the UEFA Champions League final in glorious virtual reality on your smartphone, courtesy of BT, for a fully immersive experience.

The best of the best of European soccer will arrive at Cardiff, Wales on June 3 for the Champions League Final.

The Italian side will train at the Millennium Stadium later on Friday, while Coach Allegri will answer reporters' questions at a news conference.

A penalty-shootout victory over Atletico Madrid in Milan a year ago delivered an 11th European crown for the Bernabeu club, with Zidane turning around a season that began with rancour and poor performances under Rafael Benitez.

The Champions League final can not come soon enough as Juventus and Real Madrid face off in a mouth-watering clash. Both teams like to play on the counter-attack but Real Madrid aren't as disciplined or clever defensively. "For us he's a key component of our team".

But Zidane feels that the repeat of the 1998 final, which Real won 1-0, will be an open and entertaining affair.

I can see Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini being able to take care of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, using their intelligence and strength to block off their runs.

Dani has won this competition and has four or five years left in his career but I have to exclude this possibility.

The two played together in Madrid from 2007-13 and Higuain said they still maintain contact.

"This time around we are hosting two main viewing galas to give our consumers in the most innovative ways to be part of the action while creating memorable moments", he added. That is the most important thing.

At 39 years 126 days, the Italy worldwide would replace compatriot Paolo Maldini as the oldest player to win the Champions League on Saturday - but such records mean little to someone who still feels like a "young boy". Will Real Madrid make it back-to-back triumphs? However, they more than make up for their defensive frailties with their free-scoring frontline, having netted 32 times this tournament, more than any other side.

Dybala enhanced his burgeoning reputation and increased comparisons with Messi with a two-goal blitz inside the first 22 minutes from which Barca never recovered in the quarters.
