Real Madrid have reached the final of yet another Champions League season and will be defending their title against the Italian champions Juventus. If they are able to do it successfully, they will be the first team in the history of the tournament to have achieved the incredible feat of winning the coveted silverware in two consecutive seasons.
The Galacticos, however, will have to face a stern test against the current Italian champions, who look to be in great form of their own. The Bianconeri have eliminated teams like Barcelona and French champions AS Monaco on their way to the final. All their players are in very good knick and are looking to make it as tough as possible for Los Blancos to lay a hand on the Champions League trophy this term.
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane will have his Blue Print for the final chalked out and will have certain strategies in his mind to make his team come out on the top. Certain strategies that should be a part of his master plan are as followed-
Mark Paulo Dybala well-
Paulo Dybala has undoubtedly been the main playmaker for the Bianconeri and will definitely be looking to score against Real Madrid in order to win it for his club. He has been in gallant form in the recent past and has developed a sense of good understanding with all his colleagues. Zidane and his boys will look to mark the mercurial forward with all their abilities to keep him at bay, as it will be very crucial for them to not let theArgentine score against them.
Put something past the Juventus goalkeeper Buffon-
This will be the last Champions League final for the legendary goalkeeper of Juventus Gianluigi Buffon, and the Bianconeri will look to win it for him. Buffon has been at the top of his game in this season and denied Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar Jr to put anything past him during their quarter-final match against Barcelona. The Galacticos will have to score against the brilliant veteran if they are to defend the trophy successfully.
Cristiano Ronaldo has to score-
Real Madrid’s talismanic player Cristiano Ronaldo has been in an immaculate form of late and he will look to continue it in the final as well. It will not be easy against the Bianconeri defence, but the Portuguese captain will have to be at his best for his team to retain the title successfully for the first time in their history.
