Real Madrid can become the first team to retain the Champions League title on Saturday. Can Juventus stop them?
The Italian side have lost no fewer than 6 European Cup finals, the latest against Barcelona in the 2014-15 campaign. After signing stars like Higuain and Pjanic last summer, the Old Lady have been able to win both the domestic titles and have the opportunity to win their first ever treble.
As far as Real Madrid’s team news is concerned, record signing Gareth Bale is still battling a calf injury and it will not come as any surprise if Zidane opts to start Isco ahead of the Welsh playmaker.
The former Tottenham star played his last game back in April against Barcelona. He could only feature for 39 minutes in that contest. We can expect, Isco to start with Benzema and Ronaldo in the attack.
The likes of Kroos, Casemiro and Modric should retain their starting places in the center of the park for the Los Blancos.
Carvajal missed the second leg of the semi final vs Atletico due to injury but he is fit now. He and Marcelo should start in the fullback positions. Moreover, the likes of Ramos and Varane will likely start in the central defense in front of Navas.
Here is Real Madrid’s possible 4-3-3 starting XI vs Juventus.
