Pepe, Fabio Coentrao miss training ahead of Champions League final

When I arrived at this club I had to win the Champions League and I got it with this white shirt.

Liverpool and Wales legend Ian Rush was given the honour of carrying the trophy onto the pitch in the shadow of the Welsh parliament building.

Three days before the Champions League final, and already quotes are being pulled from across Europe regarding the massive clash between Italy and Spain's best, Juventus and Real Madrid.

Now however it is Cardiff's time to shine with the big match taking place at the Principality Stadium - although it has had o be renamed due to UEFA rules on advertising.

As a short and skinny 9-year-old, Gareth Bale used to play football just a 25-minute auto ride from this year's Champions League final venue in Cardiff. "I completely understand it", Bale said.

It will be Buffon's third Champions League final.

Ronaldo, the reigning world player of the year, won the Champions League with Manchester United in 2008 and with Madrid in 2014 and 2016. Zidane involved the Castilla player Enzo in a session heavily based on pressing, possession, sprints and shots on goal, before the team focussed on crossing and shooting.

The finals are so, to make the difference will be the details and because of this I hope Real makes as few errors as possible.

"It's a final, the 90 minutes will be different".

Ramos, one of the stars for Madrid in the last two European finals won by the club, excelled in defence and offence, finding the net 10 times in all competitions this season for his best scoring mark of his career.

The Welshman's status as a fan favorite was cemented after he scored the victor in the 2014 Champions League final. "If Isco plays, he is a lot more technical". "It happened in other 16 matches this season and maybe it can happen again in the final".

"It's been a very hard season for [Bale]", Modric said. "And with the 4-4-2 you have two strikers in the middle, of course it changes the way we play, not only on offense, also defense".

Allegri, a manager since 2003, is in his second Champions League final and seeking his first title.

"There is no magic recipe to win this title", the German was quoted by FourFourTwo. They can play together, but you have to ask this question to the coach.
