Ticket prices soaring through the roof for Champions League Final

Italian football legend Andrea Pirlo has backed Juventus to beat Real Madrid in Saturday night's Champions League final in Cardiff, claiming that the Serie A champions always deliver in the games that matter.

Cardiff's iconic Millennium Stadium provides a fitting venue for a mouthwatering final full of delicious sub-plots, one of which could see Welsh wizard Gareth Bale make a triumphant return to the valleys of his birth.

It's hard to argue because Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane's squad rotation system has netted Madrid the Spanish league title and yet another Champions League final.

Nicholas Borghi, a 51-year-old bar owner from Milan, said passing through security for the Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid was easy.

As well as becoming the first team to retain the trophy since Arrigo Sacchi's all-conquering AC Milan in 1990, Madrid can complete their first Liga and European Cup double since the 1957-58 season. Juventus has conceded just three goals in 12 Champions League games this season, two in the group and one in the knockout stages. I played football well, but I only scored fa ew goals.

"Too much humility isn't good".

"After so many years without winning the Champions League you never know when the cycle might end and we're proud of what we've done and are enjoying the moment", Ramos said. "I say "we" because even if this time I will not be on the pitch, I will be the number one supporter", the veteran midfielder wrote in a column for La Stampa, the daily based in Juventus's home city of Turin. This is actually their second crack at it in three years, losing the Champions League final to Barcelona in 2015.

However, this year, Juventus have already proved their mettle and have eliminated Barca enroute the final. However, expect Bale to come off the bench during the second half and his presence should shake things up and completely change the course of the Final.

Unsurprisingly Ronaldo, the highest scorer in European Cup history, is favorite to score the opening goal.

"The fact that I'm still to win it pushes me on". Dybala joined Juan Cuadrado and Mario Mandzukic in a trio sitting just behind Gonzalo Higuain, while Miralem Pjanic has been behind them alongside Sami Khedira.
