Real Madrid and Juventus are separated by the slimmest of margins leading up to Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final in Cardiff, where the Spaniards are chasing their third European title in four seasons.
Los Merengues can become the first team ever to successfully defend the Champions League crown if they triumph in the Welsh capital, and they’ve edged just ahead of Juve as 5/6 (1.83) favourites to do just that.
The Bianconeri have proved they’re no pushovers en route to the Principality Stadium showdown, however, and are deserving of similarly high billing, currently listed at evens (2.00) with most bookmakers entering the clash.
While Zinedine Zidane is attempting to maintain his 100 per cent trophy record as Real Madrid manager, Massimiliano Allegri is hoping to give Italy its first Champions League victor since Inter Milan won the competition in 2010.
Juve conceded just one goal across the four legs of their quarter and semi-final fixtures against Barcelona and AS Monaco, respectively, but Los Blancos promise to be the fiercest test they’ve faced thus far in the tournament.
