Ronaldo back to break new ground at Champions League final

The Galacticos are aiming to become the first team to win back-to-back Champions League titles, and the first to do so under the current Champions League format, but their task will not be easy against a resolute Juventus side who are the only unbeaten team in this year's competition.

Coach Zidane is due to hold a news conference during the afternoon and his players will familiarise themselves with the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff where the match will take place on Saturday evening.

When is the 2016-17 Champions League final? .

While Gareth Bale is "fit", he hasn't started a game since the league loss to Barcelona in April. The former Real Madrid striker will have to be on top of his game if Juventus are to end years of suffering on the European stage.

Now, they face Real Madrid in Cardiff in a bid to add Champions League glory to a phenomenally dominant period at home.

Will Real Madrid have enough firepower upfront to beat Gianluigi Buffon and his defense?

"The team is in a sweet spot and we have to take advantage of that", Ronaldo told Real Madrid TV this week.

All tournament long (and last season's tourney as well, now that I think about it) I have been on the Juve bandwagon, telling anybody who'll give me their ear that the Bianconeri are built for this tournament.

Surprise! Foo Fighters Share New Cut 'Run'
The song itself is sheer Foos - earnest, heartfelt, and with those big crunching guitars lifting everything to a higher level. The track, titled " Run ", is the Foo Fighters' first new release since dropping the Saint Cecilia EP in November 2015.

Nadal turns 31 on Saturday and while he admitted he wasn't asking for any particular gifts, the 14-time Grand Slam victor would love to see Real claim another European title.

While Zidane has already claimed four trophies since taking over from Benitez, Morientes believes the best is yet to come from the 44-year-old Frenchman. I have to rule out this possibility, so yes, it will be much more special for me.

Bettors that want to wager the game in regulation on the three-way line can get Real Madrid at +150, Juventus at +175, and the Draw at +215. It's the last game of the season for us, and in my opinion it's the most important.

At the age of 39 Buffon, a 2006 World Cup victor with Italy for whom he still is the first-choice keeper, will want to end his club's 21-year wait for the elusive title.

"I will be very happy if it happens because it is my former team and my brother [Kwadwo Asamoah]". Tomorrow we have got to win.

They may not be as flamboyant but they'll be able to cope with Madrid from set-pieces and they are vastly experienced.

Speaking to reporters before Juve's training session on the pitch on Friday - with the roof closed - Buffon recalled two previous occasions he kept goal without any hindrance from the elements.

This is because Allegri might opt for a more attack-minded formation, switching from three centre backs to two, with Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado picked ahead of defender Barzagli.
