The UEFA Champions League Comes to an End

After a long season filled with thrilling matches, last-minute goals, and many unexpected match results, the UEFA Champions League is coming to an end. The two teams ready to face each other in the long-awaited final, scheduled for June 6th, are Spain's FC Barcelona and Italy's Juventus. In the semifinals, Barcelona relatively easily swept past Bayern Munich, the current German champions, while Juventus surprisingly eliminated the reigning European champion, Real Madrid. 

Everyone following this prestigious tournament is looking forward to the grand finale set to take place at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, Germany in a couple of weeks. The stadium is ready to receive almost 75,000 fans from all over the globe to presence this incredible event that occurs only once each year. Although many believe Barcelona has a clear advantage over Juventus, there have been many surprises throughout the different phases of the Champions League, so it would be unsafe to say that one team has a clear path towards victory. For example, many said that Real Madrid would easily beat Juventus and pass into the final of the tournament without any major complications. It turns out that Juventus left Real Madrid behind. With that said, who do you think will win? Why?

  1. I support Juventus over Barcelona, but I think Barcelona is a really good team. I'm glad that Real Madrid got eliminated by Juventus because I didn't want the finalists to be two teams that are in the same league.
