Imagine being so villainous that everyone's backing your opponents, who are themselves so morally bankrupt that they got relegated for cheating. Good riddance.
Yep I agree, I can't stand Juve, but I was supporting them tonight as they are the lesser of two evils. (Also I want to watch the CL Final with my Italian brother-in-law who hales from Milan but supports Juve, and it'll be fun him shouting for Juve and me for Barca! :D )

Well deserved Juve, didn't think they'd pull it off after Ronaldo scored.

Real were really poor i thought. They will typically blame Bale (and he deserves criticism), but he was just about their only attacking player who has actually trying, Benzema was poor and Ronaldo doesn't seem to care about anything else but scoring these days.

Don't think Juve will the final but stranger things have happened.

Unlike Bayern on Tuesday, I don't think Real did anything wrong apart from not wanting it enough but that is to be expected since they won it last season. Just goes to show you how difficult it is to win the CL two years in a row. The team that started was good enough but the lack of a true DM showed although I don't think RM actually have a decent one aside from Khedira (Lucas Silva looks like a bright prospect). I didn't watch the game properly but RM's defence looked threatened for large periods of the second half while Buffon pulled off only a couple of saves. You'd expect RM to come out all guns blazing after Morata's goal but the big chances never came really.

This is why I reckon Juve have a good chance against Barca. Enrique's 11 is not as good as Guardiola's back in 2009 and 2011 as Xavi & Iniesta were at their pinnacle. If Juve can contain MSN they have a chance of breaking Barcelona. They contained BBC last night and they made it look not too hard so if they can do that in June then they have a chance.
You'd fancy them too as well with someone like Pirlo as regista and somone like Tevez upfront.

Surely Evra and Chiellini will put pressure on Suarez. Other than that, despite Juventus having good defence, I can't see anyone stopping that front 3.

I imagine Bale will be off this summer. Having read about, it seems Madrid's press have actually been sympathetic to him today, however the same cannot be said of all fans.The constant jeering of their own players is typical of Madrid fans. The Casillas incident the other day was unbelievable. They are the most selfish around, an attitude which transfers to the board. I'll be shocked if Carlo keeps his job, which is sad considering his achievements at the club.

I think Bale is still a good player and he'll once again show it if he goes back to England. It doesn't help his confidence that the fans constantly boo him.

Tbh I've no idea why he's still in the first team or even still there. They stupidly got rid of Lopez who was superb there and then started the season with Navas who's no slouch, and then they bring Casillas back when he hasn't shown any form whatsoever and looks shakier than a puppy at the vets.

He shouldn't be. Shadow of the player he once was.


Bit disgraceful towards such a club legend.

I agree, despite his form falling off a cliff (which could be for a variety of reasons), the 'fans' need to show some more respect to someone who has been superb for them since the mid-Nineties. I think he was player of the year at Real once too when they had the first load of Galacticos. Always rated Casillas, but his time does look near.

That would suck, after all he played a huge part in taking Barca to the Final. Anyways, I think Barca will be too strong for Juve. You can't compare "BBC" and "MSN." N>B, S >>B, M>>>> C. Still rooting for Juve though!

in my opinion bale neymar ronaldo messi and benzema are all truly fantastic players no doubt about that at all. suarez is just another tevez that works hard and does the donkey work with a few goals thrown in when he has great players next to him to give him tap ins usually against the smaller teams of which the eredivise and la liga has plenty. the fee that barcelona paid for him is a joke, kind of like what liverpool spent it on but thats another story for another day no doubt about that at all.

Watched the game the other night and was thoroughly impressed with Juventus' solidity and organisation. To get to the final is some achievement and restores some creditability back to Serie A, don't think Barcelona will have it easy in the final at all, could be a fascinating game.
