Up to 170,000 football fans are expected to travel to the capital to watch the showdown between Juventus and Real Madrid on 3 June.

The club scored in every game it played, with 19 players registering on the score-sheets.

While with the La Vecchia Signora (the Old Lady), Zidane won the Serie A twice and played in two losing Champions League Cup finals, with the second in 1998 being a 1-0 defeat against Real. It's an ambition and a dream.

"We must try to keep them away from the area".

"We go to this match with greater conviction that we had two years ago, but we are still facing a strong team in Real Madrid", Allegri declared at a pre-match press conference. Cristiano thinks it won't be very different from the finals against Atl├ętico Madrid: "It will be very similar to the last ones".

"The decision to close the roof was taken by the FAW taking into consideration the recommendations made by the authorities over the last few weeks".

It will be a thrilling game, everybody wants to watch it and the players want to be on the pitch to enjoy it.

The Portuguese talisman also spoke about his coach, Zinedine Zidnae, and said how his admiration for the Frenchman had only grown with time. They are not in the final by accident. They like to cover closely their rivals, like Atl├ętico Madrid.

By shots on target, their 7.0 average pushes them to second-best, with only Barcelona (7.1) ahead.

"As for optimism, there has to be some, but I do not think, as I hear, that we are the favourites". "It's always special playing the final of the Champions League. The team did well and we woke up after the goal". Ke know it's going to be tough but we are Real Madrid and we have a good opportunity to win. "It is a club that also gave me everything", Zidane said after booking Madrid's place in the final.

"It's a wonderful event and we deserve to be here". "I used to admire him as a player and my admiration has done nothing but grow".

"I am the coach which means I am doing something right, but everyone in this squad is doing a phenomenal job", said Zidane after Real withstood an Atletico Madrid onslaught in the semi-finals.
