European giants, Real Madrid and Juventus are set to host the 2016-17 Champions League final in Cardiff on June 3, with two giants of the global game coming to blows in world football’s undoubted club highlight. Domestic champions of Spain and Italy respectively, the teams set to contest the showcase at the Millennium Stadium next month are worthy finalists.
It’s the final countdown to the most important game of the year between Real Madrid and Juventus. Italian Serie A and Coppa Italia winners have a chance to make up for their Champions League defeat in 2015 and have proved to be more determined than ever. Zinedine Zidane’s side, instead, seeks their second consecutive European title after being crowned La Liga winners.
For the Spaniards, winning the title would mean becoming the first team to retain the trophy in the history of the Champions League era. Juventus can only count two European Cup victories – the last one dating as far back as 1996 – while Real Madrid has a long tradition of domination in this tournament with a record total of 11 cups to their name.
Massimiliano Allegri’s success, on the other hand, would put Juventus among the best European giants. The ghost of six Champions League final losses out of eight would finally be discredited. Where and What time is the match and how can I watch it?
