10 years ago we had to put up with that noisy lot across Stanley Park crowing on about their Champions League success, but luckily a decade on Liverpool will not be in the European final
It will instead be Barcelona and Juventus battling out for the biggest prize on offer, with the duo also looking to scoop their third cup of the season to cement impressive trebles.
The Italian and Spanish champions have already secured their domestic leagues and cups in impressive campaigns and know that only 90 minutes (plus potential extra-time and penalty-kicks) stand in the way of continental glory. The clash will see Massimiliano Allegri and Luis Enrique face off in Berlin’s Olympiastadion and will throw up some interesting duels between the likes of Lionel Messi and Leonardo Bonucci and Carlos Tevez and Gerard Pique.
The Catalans are widely seen as favourites to lift the iconic trophy, but Juve are by no means out of the running after dispatching of Real Madrid in the semi-finals to ruin any hopes of a Clasico bout on the biggest stage.
The crunch match kicks off at 19:45 this Saturday and we at Football FanCast will be providing updates and commentary in our Live Blog in association with William Hill – who have money-saving betting tips on football.
