Not too long ago Carlos Tevez and Gerard Pique were both at Manchester United, but this weekend will see the former Red Devils face off on the biggest stage. The Argentine and Spaniard now, of course, play for Barcelona and Juventus, who are set to round off their seasons with a European Cup showdown.
The Old Lady and the red and blue-clad outfit are both gearing up for Saturday night’s Champions League Final in the knowledge that a win will secure them a trophy treble.
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 Tevez and 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 – you can place all of your football bets at William Hill.
