10 days remain until two of the best teams in Europe will clash to contest the UEFA Champions League 2015 Trophy. Both football clubs just won their league’s top flight division titles and I’m hoping this will be one of the best matches this year.
Juventus, 2-time champions in the premier European tournament, will definitely be the underdogs. Barcelona having won this prestigious event 4 times, is the stronger and more dynamic team having acquired the services of ex-Liverpool striker, Luis Suarez. Coincidentally, both clubs are aiming to be in the elite teams having the so-called Continental Treble(winning League title, Cup title and European Cup title in the same season).
Barcelona players (best form for the past 4 months):
Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar Jr., Ivan Rakitic, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Gerard Pique, Jeremy Mathieu,
Manager: Luis Enrique
Juventus players (best form for the past 4 months):
Carlos Tevez, Andrea Pirlo, Alvaro Morata, Gigi Buffon, Arturo Vidal, Patrice Evra, Giorgio Chiellini
Manager: Max Allegri
Historically these are the head-to-head stats with a total of 9 matches spanning from 1952-2003
Alessandro Del Piero, Juventus legend has this to say.
Best of luck to both teams and of course, FORZA JUVE!!!
