Prediction for Juventus – Real Madrid
BTS / YES @ 1.90
Juventus and Real Madrid face off at the National Stadium in Cardiff in the final of the UEFA Champions League. This is the most anticipated match of the year in the football world, in which the best teams of the 2016/2017 season face in a historic and very balanced match. The details will make all the difference in this confrontation. By speaking in balance, that is what is expected by analyzing the record of recent direct confrontations. In the last 3 years there were 2 draws and one win for each team. Of note the last party, in May of 2015, that finished in a tie by 1×1.
Both teams arrive motivated by recent conquests, as Real Madrid and Juventus conquered the title in the respective national championships. Of note is the sixth consecutive national title of Juventus, but also the return to the titles in La Liga of the Real, after 4 seasons without conquering the trophy. In addition, Real Madrid is the current European champion and will defend his title in this final.
In the 1995/1996 season, when Van der Sar’s Ajax dominated Europe with a team almost unbeatable, Del Piero and company surpassed the spectacular Dutch football and took the title to Turin for the last time. So this Saturday the Juve tries to finish a series of 20 seasons without conquering the title of European champion.
Until reaching the final Juve made an impeccable campaign in the group stage and in the following eliminations eliminated Porto, Barcelona and AS Monaco in very difficult matches, but the old lady was able to solve. The Italian team probably has the most solid defensive system in the world today. We are not just talking about the line of defenses, but the way the 11 defend, with a lot of pressure on the rival players, leaving no spaces to play. When they get close to the Juve area, the opponents face a tactical lock that needs to be broken to reach Buffon’s goal. So, going through the defensive system very well framed tactically, we still have to overcome nothing less than Gianluigi Buffon.
In addition, when it attacks it manages to also involve the most defensive players and imposes to the rivals a slaughtering offensive force. The team has Brazilian Dani Alves, who is going through an exceptional phase and fits as a glove in the tactical scheme of Juventus, in addition to Mandžukić, who has played a vital role in the offensive support so far. But the outstanding player is Dybala, who has everything to be the best player of this final, with all respect to the myth CR7, but the moment of form of Dybala is fantastic. We are witnessing the birth of a new world football star. Finally, there is Higuain, the matador who is making another excellent season so far. Allegri will be able to count on all the usual headlines for this match and for being nothing silly, in his statements he has given all the favoritism to the real, taking the weight of favoritism on the backs of his players.
The current European champion comes to this confrontation motivated by the conquest of the long awaited Spanish title, which he had not conquered in the last 4 seasons. The Merengue team went through oscillations this season, but Casemiro, the Brazilian midfielder, currently defensive midfielder Zidane’s team, completely changed the tactical balance of the team and gave a greater consistency defensive to Real Madrid. In the last games of the season the team has improved game after match and still has an excellent form moment of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has presented a lot of maturity and is affirming like one of the best players of the history of the soccer, since We all know that CR7 is no longer a boy. His speed and agility are no longer the same, but the Portuguese continues to present impressive numbers and arrives as one of the strongest candidates to conquer the Ballon d’Or.
To reach this final the merengues eliminated to Naples, Bayern Munich and its greater rival, Atletico of Madrid. In this confrontation Zidane knows of the difficulties that will find, since it has ahead a very solid equipment, as it is the Juve. In the last training, of closed gates, the rumors were of was preparing a surprise for the Italians. The question that will be asked is: How to overcome a defensively solid team? We do not need to go deep in that thought to understand that Zizu has players of different characteristics at his disposal and will use them as an ace up his sleeve to surprise the Juve in his tactical deficiencies. We think that Zidane should organize the Real in a 4-4-2 classic, but that will change for a 4-3-3 when he attacks, with Isco falling for one of the bands, especially the right, leaving the left for Ronaldo, and That Bale will not play at the start and Casemiro will not leave his position closer to the central. However, he must also attack, in some moments, in 4-3-1-2, with Ronaldo and Benzena in the middle, more advanced, and with Isco behind, in the center, to confuse the Italian defense. In fact, the team of Turin plays with 3 defenders in the central zone and usually creates in its rivals the false idea that to attack by the bands is the best option.
Perhaps here is the key to the game for Real, as Zidane may surprise the Italians in many ways. It is important to remember that Zizu has other victories, besides the stars Benzema and CR7. We talk about Bale, who can make the defenses of the Italian team run a lot, and Casemiro, who can go up the court and change the balance in the midfield. The old lady has Dani Alves on the team, which gives a lot of offensive support, but is not very strong defensively, so will face many difficulties in individual duels with the CR7. Zidane will have the return of Bale, who will be able to play, but is not 100% ready physically, so Carvajal should play at the beginning.
