Juve the final hurdle to history for Real

Juventus and Real Madrid meet in the Welsh capital this weekend at the Millennium Stadium for this year's Champions League Final.

"For sure it is special because it was a very important club for me as a player". "I've had my operation, which really caused all of my problems, which is quite unlucky". I'd been in a lot of pain in training and have taken tablets to get through games.

The 49-year-old tactician thanked the group for their efforts throughout the season and said he hoped to get the last piece of silverware before going on vacation. He made a slow start in the Champions League, with only two goals in his first eight games. "I want to be at this club but it depends on what you do on the field". I feel strong, feel fit, [but] obviously match fitness is a different thing.

Real boss Zinedine Zidane has to choose whether to start £85m club-record signing Bale or keep faith with Isco, who has scored five goals in his past 11 appearances.

Zinedina Zidane's La Liga title winners will become the first ever team to defend the Champions League trophy if they can find a way past Juventus in Wales - but the Italian giants will be no pushovers.

"Gareth doesn't have to say anything to me".

Asked directly about the choice between Bale and Isco he added: "The decision is hard because everyone is available and I will have to choose between the entire squad". Right now, I'm only thinking about Saturday. Now, we're taking more of a look at the Spanish champions, posing the question about what aspect of their game is the biggest concern for Max Allegri and his Juventus squad.

While he, Buffon and fellow defensive stalwarts Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli are all in their 30s, Chiellini is hopeful this Juve team can continue together in years to come, building on reaching two European finals in three years.

"It's the last game of the season for us, and in my opinion it's the most important".

"The final is won by scoring goals".

Luka Modric said of his Madrid team-mate: "He was one of the best players at the start of the season and it's not nice for him that he has suffered since". He showed great skill to clear three defenders in a small space to help send Madrid to the final for the third time in four seasons. Not only will he be looking to get his second straight Champions League title, but a win also makes it incredibly likely that he will receive his second straight Ballon d'Or (awarded to the best football player of the year).

Even though he is one of Real's highest paid players, and has a celebrity girlfriend in television presenter Pilar Rubio, Ramos likes to talk about his humble roots in the working class town of Camas outside Seville.
