Ticket prices soaring through the roof for Champions League Final

The last duel the reigning Champions of Italy and Spain was held two years ago in the Champions League semi-final Juventus with two goals graduate of real Madrid, Alvaro Morata went to the finals, where they lost to Barcelona.

Ronaldo has already added his name to more record books during this season's Champions League.

The Italians had won the competition two years earlier, were in their third successive final and possessed a star-studded line-up including current Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

Even though Juventus usually play compact football, the game is likely to be an open one with Real Madrid trying to carve out chances and pushing high while Juventus aim to hit their opponent on counters and release their front three to do the damage.

"Myself and the players realise we are living something spectacular, something very special. But we haven't won anything yet".

It would allow them to proclaim European dominance with a conviction they last possessed during Alfredo Di Stefano's five consecutive wins of the late 1950s.

Juve right-back Dani Alves can become the first player to win three European Trebles, having previously achieved the feat twice with Barcelona.

Football fans are being warned not to buy tickets for the Champions League final on the street as they could be stolen.

I think Real know how to feed off pressure.

Gianluigi Buffon saved a penalty from Madrid's Luis Figo before Pavel Nedved made it 3-0.

As you can possibly guess, I'm backing Juventus, how about you? People always say we are favourites but there are no faves in a final. Well it is the case in point in the Champions League final and we are tipping the immovable object to derail the unstoppable force, only narrowly.

"There's more conviction. Since Berlin, we've grown a lot - everyone - and that's reassuring", he said. But I'm enjoying it.

It would be Europe's best defence team versus the best attack.

Spanish global Isco shone in Bale's absence as Real secured their first LaLiga title since 2012, and manager Zidane remained coy on his selection headache at his final pre-match press conference.
