Champions League, Real Madrid vs Juventus: Preview, possible line-ups and team news ahead of Cardiff final

It is difficult to see the career as Real Madrid player Zinedine Zidane as something more than remarkable. Probably the best midfielder of his generation would be better in many XI of all time.

But the final of the Champions League on Saturday against their former club Juventus said that the French not quite in their way.

When Juventus signed Zidane from the French club of Bordeaux in 1996, only they had crowned champions of Europe. The midfielder was the man they hoped to help ensure greater success in the Champions League.

Italian rivals AC Milan had won the European title three times in a row and, at the time Serie A was the best European league, Juventus wanted, perhaps, the need to follow and dominate the continent.

But that never happened – Juve lost two finals in the Zidane era, and his solo success of the Champions League with Real came in 2002.

In 1997, Juve lost 3-1 against Borussia Dortmund in the final, the Frenchman is largely ineffective, marked by the Scottish environment game Paul Lambert.

The following year, Juve was again in the final phase for the third consecutive season, only to lose 1-0 against Real, with the purpose of Predrag Mijatovic who was the first European title of the Spanish club in 32 years.

“Moments like these are difficult and sad, but they are an integral part of any race in football and you have to accept them.I’m happy to win the competition later with Real Madrid.All races that allow the entry of both good and bad Memories, “Zidane said recently.

The pain was quickly facilitated for Zidane, who won the World Cup race in his homeland with France, but his last three years at Juve were destroyed in terms of trophies.

Zidane was part of two title-winning teams in his first two years at the club, but his last three years have led to the dark UEFA Intertoto Cup.

When he recorded his world record of 75 millions real in 2001, the fans of the Juve were saddened, but there was no outrage.

In fact, the club’s transfer fee has helped bring in three players who require a period of domestic domination: goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, French defender Lilian Thuram of Parma and especially Czech midfielder Pavel Nedved Lazio.

Zidane, who lived peacefully in the country during his stay in Italy, is still beloved and respected among the faithful of Juve. But on Saturday, I hope the team of Massimo Allegri can offer the same trophy that the French could not ensure.

Zidane XI faces a headache over whether to go with Isco Calderon or Gareth Bale. Welsh is the ideal choice, since the end is on its ground, but the problem in the calf 27 years is a little worrisome for the manager. Isco fulfilled all the requirements and splendidly interpreted by Real Madrid, in the absence of Bale.

Raphael Varane should pair next to Sergio Ramos in defense as Pepe is excluded because of the broken ribs.
