Less than a week to go now then.

Who else is excited?

As a neutral hoping for a more of a contest than the cup final and I will think we will get it.

Barca to win with ease in Extra Time.

Also the final Champions League game on Sky Sports for a while which is a real shame!

Really looking forward to it, especially when I head out to my Juve-supporting brother-in-law's to watch it next week and with me rooting for Barca, it should be great fun!

Score, I'll go for Juventus 1 - 3 Barca

Barca should walk it with that front three, it'd be fantastic if Juve show them up though.

I've tend to notice the Champions League finals are always close. They always seem to be anyways. Still I expect a Barcelona win here. That front 3 is unstoppable.

Off the top of my head i don't think there's been 2 goals or more for both teams in a CL final since it started.

Barca will be too strong i reckon. Juve will need to score an early goal to make it tense because otherwise, i really don't see them stopping that front 3.

3 - 1 Barca with each of the front 3 to grab one.

I hope Juve take the lead, would be fascinating to see them try and defend it out.

No of course not. But do you really think Juve will keep Messi/Suarez and Neymar quiet for 90 mins?
Indeed, he's a Chelsea fan that obviously hates Barca so puts a scoreline like that in for what he hopes will happen, not what will be predicted to happen.

I don't think Juventus will win, but football is full of surprises. For example, people would have thought a 7-1 win for Germany was a stupid prediction, but look what happened.

I hope Juve will win, Italian football needs it. It will be surely a very good game.

The only way Juve can win is to get Messi injured early in the game without seeing red card.

Elie, mate, I think you're forgetting the most relevant CL final in your lifetime. It happened in Constantinople.

Really down to how Allegri lines up at the back. Barzagli, Bonucci and Chiellini are their three best defenders but Juve only turned things around in Europe when they ditched Conte's 3-5-2 for four. They tried it one last time in the cup final recently but played terribly.

Barzagli's the best pure defender they have. He's not as strong as Chiellini or as good on the ball as Bonucci but he reads the game better than anyone. So I think Barzagli has to play but starting with three at the back would be suicide.

Edit: Chiellini really is out. Problem solved then.

2 of the most dislikable teams in Europe.

I'm predicting, sorry hoping, for a blood bath.

Seriously though, Barcelona will win 5-0. Juve are going to need a massive Istanbul-esque slice of luck if they're even going to get close to Messi and Neymar.

Even Juve is more likeable tha Chelsea and they got relegated for match fixing!
