Juventus should be the favorite heading into the big game IMO.

rooting for my boys but from an objective standpoint, I believe Juventus is better.

However, by June 3rd, a healthier and rested Real Madrid will be exciting. Hope Morata gets the start rather than Benz....

but i'm a broken record already.

Much love for Morata. Hopefully we go up 3-0 and he comes on and scores one last second

Would it have been nice for neutrals if Monaco or Atleti made the final? Sure, but they didn't have the players for it, simple as.

Some of us would prefer a certain English side instead :wink:. It would also be nice for once to have a different set of teams. Not all of us are Ronaldo fanboys. :lol:

Fairs, would love to see English sides do better in Europe tbh but the quality is a tad subpar these days. Tougher to hold on to superstars perhaps? Idk.

:lol: convenient being Portuguese and a Madrid fan in the era of Ronaldo haha

“The UEFA Champions League, UEFA Women's Champions League and UEFA Europa League trophies will be presented to the winning captains on the pitch this year, following a decision by UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin,” a statement on UEFA’s official website confirmed.
“Purpose-built stages have been produced for these venues, and assembling them will take less than five minutes.
“The return to on-pitch presentations will give all fans in the stadiums a better view of the trophy lifts, while the television audience will also get clearer pictures.”
Ceferin explained the decision, which will apply for all UEFA club and international tournaments from now on.
“The pitch is the players' stage and it is only fitting that their achievements are celebrated there.
“It also makes sense that the officials should come down from the stands to the players – to their arena – and pay tribute to them in presenting the trophy and medals on the playing surface.
“Players will also be able to celebrate with their team-mates on the pitch in full view of the fans without the interruption of having to climb up to the stands. Furthermore, all supporters will get a perfect view of the trophy lift wherever they are seated in the stadium.”


I am happy about this
