Juventus Vs Real Madrid / Black or White it is!!!
Juventus last five games
The Italian Champions lost one game in their last five games in all competitions. The defeat came against AS Roma in Serie A away game. In those games, they have scored ten goals and conceded five goals.
Real Madrid last five games
Los Blancos holds same record in last five games. Real Madrid won first La Liga title since 2012 with a clean sheet victory over Malaga at La Rosaleda. Their last defeat came against city rivals Atletico Madrid in second leg of Semi Final that was played at Vicente Calderon. It was last game played at Vicente Calderon.
Real Madrid is set to be the first team to win the Champions League in successive years and the recently acquired LaLiga title will boost their confidence. Juventus on the other hand have been the Italian Champions for the past six years now and the absence of the Champions League trophy deeply disturbs them; they’ll be looking to fill that absence in Cardiff for sure!
Real Madrid has had a spectacular season under Zinedine Zidane who is proving that he deserves to be among the greats in the managerial world as well. Juventus will also be extremely grateful to their Manager Massimiliano Allegri for his excellent framework from which his team operates. Both managers have shaped their squads right up to their potential and claims that they have more in the bag.

Real Madrid showcase an extremely attack minded team that loves to dwell on the ball but with scoring as the only intention in mind. They don’t mind conceding and will always look to outscore their opponents. They depend on their pace all the way from their full backs and chance on their Ariel proficiency by swinging in high crosses and early long balls.
Even though their balls into the box seem extremely obvious at times, it will probably be unstoppable. Who could blame them, they look for Cristiano with those high balls and there ain’t a player in world football that can soar up like Ronaldo does. They have scored in all matches this year and will be looking to keep that form going into the final. With Marcelo, Isco (or Bale), Modric, Kroos and Casemiro also going forward, we can expect a highly intense attacking masterclass. With scoring threats coming from players like skipper Sergio Ramos it is highly unlikely that Real leave without at least netting a goal.
Juventus on the other hand has proven to be the most solid defence the world has seen this season. Buffon’s counterpart Navas has kept just 1 clean sheet in the competition and although this wasn’t due to the lack of his abilities, it seems to be undermined when compared to Buffon’s record where he has only conceded in one match so far.
With Chiellini, Barzagli, Bonucci, and Alves providing a rock solid defence, things might just be easier for Buffon in the final. Although, Juventus might not be able to shut out Real Madrid like they have other teams, they will surely look to contain them better than most. Higuaín and Dybala will look to make some chances of their own at the other end too.
It is sure to be an iconic match and we sincerely believe it will live up to the hike it has received so far. All players and staff are training as hard as they can to be at their best when the world watches them. This is football at its best, be sure to be a part of the dream!!!
