The former Juve midfielder has since silenced most of his detractors by steering Real to a first LaLiga title since 2012 and he will not only enter an exclusive club if he wins a second Champions League crown, he will become the first coach to ever retain the trophy.

A combination of pictures created in London on May 31, 2017 Real Madrid's Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo (L) controlling the ball during the Spanish league football match Real Madrid CF vs RC Celta de Vigo at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid on December 6, 2014 and Juventus' goalkeeper from Italy Gianluigi Buffon (R) throwing the ball during the UEFA Champions League semi final second leg football match Juventus vs Monaco, on May 9, 2017 at the Juventus stadium in Turin.

The winger joined from Tottenham back in 2013 for £86m, a world record at the time, and scored a goal in the Champions League Final back in 2014 against Atletico Madrid.

Gareth Bale is not 100%, as the Welsh player is in pain, having returned too early from ligament surgery.

The Italian side will train at the Millennium Stadium later on Friday, while Coach Allegri will answer reporters' questions at a news conference. Spain's Real Madrid, fresh off of winning La Liga, will meet Serie A champions and Coppa Italia victor Juventus on the pitch of Millennium Stadium.

"We know all about pressure at Real Madrid", Zidane said. "We work hard and that's the spirit of this team".

But Zidane feels that the repeat of the 1998 final, which Real won 1-0, will be an open and entertaining affair.

Relief, because it means the club are back in the Champions League - and can keep attracting some of Europe's top names. He also aimed a barb at those managers he described as "poets" who do not win anything.

"How I see Saturday night going?"

While Zidane has already claimed four trophies since taking over from Benitez, Morientes believes the best is yet to come from the 44-year-old Frenchman.

Buffon has been the last line of a Juve defence that conceded only three times en route to the final - the lowest total since Arsenal arrived at the showpiece game against Barcelona in 2006 having let in two goals.

"I live day by day and we've prepared for each game, winning the Coppa Italia, then Serie A and now we are here for this final, to end an extraordinary year, and tomorrow we need to give even more". "But we haven't won anything yet".

I've been very impressed with them and it's the strength all round, in all departments, which says to me they're better equipped to win this match.

Speaking about the three-time FIFA World Player of the Year, Morientes told Omnisport: "It is not a surprise for me because he is a good manager".

The 32-year-old Portuguese has exploded reports of his demise with stunning hat-tricks against Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals and Atletico in the last four. Will Real Madrid make it back-to-back triumphs?
