Spanish heavyweights favourites for Champions League final — Real Madrid legends


"They were very generous and gave us a couple of bottles to celebrate". "It happened in other 16 matches this season and maybe it can happen again in the final". There are no favourites in finals. "If Bale plays, Los Blancos will have more depth, Isco is much more technical".

"We obviously failed to reached an agreement financially", Kroos told Sport Bild. "And that Juve, Buffon and Juventus defenders play a bad game". Higuaín and Alves are also good. "Any Champions League final is special, but obviously this is a little bit extra special".

"It's the last game of the season, the most important one", Zidane said.

I think my position will always continue to be the same. "A final in the city where I was born and we are just one step away from winning the trophy". That's why we're both in the final'. But to last 90 minutes.

"Two brilliant football teams will meet on Saturday".

Sami Khedira should be fit after appearing in the final Serie A game of the season against Bologna.

By beating Real Madrid this weekend, Juventus would become only the ninth club in history to record the league, cup and Champions League treble.

Nice for the fans or the players? It could have been a lot more complicated for Zidane this week, even if it could still leave a few complications in the summer. And he said he's not putting any pressure on Zidane to pick him against Juventus. He has changed the way he plays.

"I want to be at this club but it depends on what you do on the field". He is also a very noble person and that is worth even more'.

Ramos has threatened to cost his team nearly as often as he has saved them, holding the record of 22 red cards at Real, nearly double the tally of nearest challenger Fernando Hierro.

"We had great conviction in our abilities two years ago and the same is the case this time around".

"I think Isco has been fantastic", added Bale.

I can't wait to see Paulo Dybala on the biggest stage. "Whether I play the final or not, it's been a hard year for the injuries I've had". He is ready. He is with us. Playing at home and that's that. The time out of action has at least allowed him to focus more fully on a more fundamental, underlying problem: the rehabilitation of the ankle, which was still incomplete.

'I have one more year on my contract but that doesn't mean anything.

He continued: "You want to come back as soon as possible. We are thinking positively and Hala Madrid!". The future: Saturday and nothing else. Real Madrid defended 25 long minutes until the German referee Hellmut Krug finished the game with the final whistle. "It is not easy to play or coach at this club".

'After we won the league it was something spectacular.

"I had my ankle operation, which still hasn't really recovered".
