Possible line-upsJuventus: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Pjanić; Dani Alves, Dybala, Mandžukić; Higuaín.

Bale has scored 54 goals in 100 games in La Liga during a four-season stay at The Bernabeu.

We have worked for a whole year. We have to win.

Ramos, one of the stars for Madrid in the last two European finals won by the club, excelled in defense and offense, finding the net 10 times in all competitions this season for his best scoring mark of his career. But we need to feel relaxed and confident that we're able to win the trophy. But, at the age of 39, the World Cup victor finally has a chance to win the trophy he dreams of.

He scored two consecutive hat tricks in the Champions League, one in the quarterfinals against Bayern Munich and another in the semifinals against Atletico Madrid. We've been growing gradually.

One of British football's most successful exports, Charles joined Juventus from Swansea City in 1957 and proved a huge hit, scoring 108 goals in 155 appearances and winning three Serie A titles.

LONDON (AP) - The Millennium Stadium will become the fourth British ground to host a European Cup final when Real Madrid faces Juventus on Saturday. "We have to be more convinced and sacrifice ourselves more". In football, you have to give it your all. "I went there a boy, I came back a man", Rush told Wales Online recently. In Turin, Arturo Vidal and Fernando Llorente's scored for their side, but this wasn't enough as Ronaldo and Bale had also scored to make the match a draw game.

"But I'm living it and I'm enjoying it".

We know all about pressure at Real Madrid. We're not favourites, nor are Juventus.

"We've lost a number of finals".

"I've lived and been at Juventus, in Italy there's the famous Catenaccio, but Juve don't just have that". I expect an open game.

People say they won the last Champions League with a goal in offside. "But what I would like to insist on, what's important is what he does professionally".

"I already admired him as a player", Ronaldo said, "and now I admire him even more as a coach because he's a very positive person - a hard worker and very respectful towards the players".

"He's got something inside that he's a born leader".

We're not going to change anything at all.

If we start with Juventus - one such ominous record is that the last time the Italian giants contested a final in England - the 2003 Final at Old Trafford against AC Milan, it ended in a penalty shootout defeat for them.

Rush followed in Charles's footsteps when he joined Juve from Liverpool 30 years later, but things did not go almost as well.

"I sent him a text when I heard he signed for Juventus".

"Obviously what I want the most is to play more freely up front", Ronaldo said, "and that is the opportunity Zinedine Zidane has been giving me as a No. 9".

Going down memory lane, one relives at how spectacular the Real Madrid vs Juventus matches have been in the Champions League. In life and in Juventus, I learned that the best are the most humble, the ones who train the most, the ones who share the most.
