Facing Barcelona in the Champions League final will be either their home rivals Real Madrid or the Italian champions Juventus.

In the first round Juve won 2-1 but Real Madrid’s away goal means that a 1-0 victory would clinch it for them.

After winning the Champions League with the same side last year the Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti knows what it takes to win:

“We have to be calm and focused,” he said. “And that’s what I’m going to ask my players for, because we are very motivated and we are looking forward to play in another final and the most important thing is to be calm.”

The Italian team is expected to put in an attacking side rather than try to defend such a slender advantage.

But they are disadvantaged as they will be without Kwadwo Asamoah and Martin Caceres due to injuries while Toni Kroos is a doubt.

They do expect have France midfielder Paul Pogba helping their cause, however.

Madrid meanwhile may benefit from the presence of Karim Benzema after more than a month off the pitch.
