Champion League Final Clash: Managers Speak

Real Madrid FC vs Juventus in the Champions League Final would possibly be one great ‘fight’ ever to be cherished by football fans and lovers of football worldwide

The match between the Spanish giant and Italian Juventus would make history as another match which will thrill football enthusiast globally after consistent meetings over the years. It is not always the case that we have Europe’s two best teams in the Champions League final, so this is a mouth-watering tie everyone has been waiting for.

Here is Karl Matchett’s( Prediction for Bleacher sport on Juventus Vs Real Madrid

“This should be one of the most intriguing Champions League finals in years, without the derby factor when Atletico have met Real Madrid, but still with a side with the same defensive solidity and star quality in attack in Juventus.

Real won’t change a thing from how they usually play; they’ll look to be on the front foot without necessarily dominating possession or pressing high upfield, with most of their best work against quality opposition coming in midfield transitions and getting players forward quickly.

Isco hasn’t just been good enough of late to win a place—he’s helped force an entirely different tactical arrangement, one that gets the best out of Cristiano Ronaldo but may leave Real vulnerable to Juve’s attacks down the wings.

It’s plausible that the main protagonist of the game is Juan Cuadrado as an outlet for Juve, and how Real’s full-backs cope defensively will determine whether they can become the first team to retain the Champions League-era trophy.

Juve, for their part, must learn lessons of previous finals and not be too withdrawn, too patient or afford Real too much respect”.

According to a report culled from Sports Mole, Real Madrid Manager;l, Zinedine Zidane said.
Both Real Madrid and Juventus are deserving of their place in the final of the Champions League but does not see any real difference between the sides.

The Italian giants remain on course to end the UEFA showpiece with the best-ever record in that regard, though Zidane believes that the game will come down to a lot more than simply a defence against attack.

“People say Juve defend better, that we are the best attack, but I do not think like that,” he told reporters. “I don’t feel there is much difference between the teams. These are the two best teams going to play the final. It is deserved after a very long season.”

Juve’s Coach, Massimiliano Allegri on the other side said, ” We must be optimistic but it does not seem fair to say that Juventus will be the favourites.”

He further said. “Real are in their third final in four years and are used to playing in them, even though we have been there twice in three years. It will be a wonderful event and we deserve to be there.

He finally added. Getting to the Champions League final gives me great joy, and I’m lucky to be able to sit on the bench in Cardiff on Saturday.”
