Zidane 'Cristiano Ronaldo better than me'

Spanish worldwide Isco shone in Bale's absence as Real secured their first LaLiga title since 2012, and manager Zidane remained coy on his selection headache at his final pre-match press conference in Cardiff. "There's nothing better in life than getting your reward, because you know how hard you've worked, how much you've sweated for it, and with teammates who've worked even more to get it".

Real Madrid have won a record 11 European Cups, and have triumphed in their last five finals.

"For example, in penalties, thinking about which side you shoot more towards: when you're there, a lot of things go through your head and it's one moment to decide".

Madrid is looking to become the first club to retain the Champions League title in its current format.

Asked who was the better player, Zidane said: "Cristiano Ronaldo, no doubt, because he scores goals and that s the most important".

The goals also enabled Ronaldo to become the first player reach 100 Champions League goals.

"Knowing Ronaldo, (he will play a) big (part)".

When Madrid flew to Turin for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final in 2003, the "Galacticos" appeared on the brink of yet another memorable conquest.

Juventus is chasing its third title, having not won European soccer's top prize since 1996.

"In training one day, I saw something in Dybala that I had seen before in Messi", Juventus right back Dani Alves wrote in a column Friday on The Players' Tribune website. "What I want and want everyone is to see a nice finish". "It was the gift of pure talent combined with the will to conquer the world". "And hopefully we could bring a lot of music fans to watch us, too". "I assessed our players' strengths and I tried to put them on the pitch in their favorite positions and I also tried to encourage our attacking skills".

"Our squad has changed in nearly every position", Allegri said. Our awareness of our own ability has gone up.

On the other sideline will be a man who has achieved more in 18 months than some coaches do in an entire career.

The Portugal captain has admitted to changing the way he trains and plays in order to stay fresher for the decisive games in a campaign and his approach has paid dividends in 2016-17, given that he has scored eight goals in his last four Champions League games and six in their final four LaLiga matches as they clinched the title.

"It would be the greatest joy of my career, together with the World Cup, because it would nearly be a reward - the end of a very difficult road paved by bravery, stubbornness and hard work".

Zidane, the once hot-headed playmaker whose last act of an illustrious on-field career was slamming his head into the chest of Italy defender Marco Materazzi during the 2006 World Cup final, has quickly establish himself as a diligent and intelligent coach.
