"It's really attractive to be able to play the final again, like we did in Milan (in 2016)". I think Real know how to feed off pressure.
Zidane refused to reveal whether he will start Wales forward Gareth Bale, who has been struggling with calf and ankle problems for much of the season, or stick with in-form Isco. The Real Madrid players have real chances to break the barriers of the strong defence of Juventus and produce heart-stopping goal (s).

This is the only trophy that has eluded the superhero of Juventus' resurrection; Gianluigi Buffon.
"We will do everything we can to win, but I've lost many times as a player in important matches". And, ahead of the Champions League final Bale's fitness still remains a concern for the manager.
Police in Cardiff warned that tickets sold on the street may not give access to the match after a number were stolen from a hotel.
"Juventus haven't lost six finals, we've been involved in eight!"
The test that awaits the Old Lady in Cardiff is just as tough if not tougher.
"I've seen it as a player and as a coach. It's very hard to take such a tough decision because there are six players who are nothing to dress. It's part of my job and I will do it with all my conscience, but I can affirm you that we are all in the same boat".
"We will do everything possible to bring the trophy home again".

Also, the Frenchman who led Madrid to the Champions League title last year, will be seeking to win it for the second consecutive year.
Ozil told Arsenal Player: "His ambition, how hungry for success he is, as a player, you're always quite similar".
"I have always maintained that, in football, making the final means nothing if you don't win it", Buffon said.
History is at stake in the sold out Cardiff Principality Stadium tonight as Real Madrid and Juventus file out to battle for Europe's greatest trophy, the UEFA Champions League cup. The Italian side have completed some impressive performances this season, winning the Italian Coppa and the Serie A while knocking out teams like Barcelona on their way to the Champions League Final.
Max Allegri will also be aware that even if his side are able to nullify the threat of Modric and press him quickly, they'll have to try and replicate the same duty on his midfield colleague Toni Kroos.
Even the relatively small amounts of money spent on the likes of Keylor Navas (€10m), Raphael Varane (€10m), Toni Kroos (€30m), Isco (€30m) and Luka Modric (€35m) represent excellent pieces of business, given what they have contributed to Real's recent triumphs.
