Alves special sends ruthless Juve into final

Alves special sends ruthless Juve into final

Brazilian Dani Alves was the inspiration in the second-leg in Turin, setting up the first goal for Mario Mandzukic before scoring the second on the stroke of half-time with a fantastic volley. They had the same goalkeeper and defence they do now, although Giorgio Chiellini was unfortunately injured for the final. Two great teams with European pedigree.

It will be the ninth time Juventus, runners-up to Barcelona in 2015, contest the final of Europe's elite club competition. Ours is 18 and we have a lot of players who are 21, 22, 23, and I think that is the difference. If Juventus boss Allegri wants to try the same trick in Cardiff, Alves will be his go-to man.

There is a possibility that Alves' first season at Juventus could end in extremely positive fashion, with the club closing in on the Serie A title, while they are also through to the finals of both the Champions League and the Coppa Italia.

"We have to improve and learn from that, as in the Champions League you can't get distracted for a second". We've achieved a dream we had since pre-season in Melbourne, we played so many games and it's not over yet.

Dybala told him to start preparing for their next Champions League final. It would hurt the Italian to lose it to another Spanish giant for the second time in three years.

But the president told NBC News on Thursday that he was going to can Comey even without their recommendations. Rosenstein "met with Comey , had the opportunity to be able to meet with him, be able to talk to him".

On Wednesday, the Champions League semifinals wrap up with Atletico Madrid going off at +160 at home against Real Madrid, who are a slight favorite to win outright on the road at +155 with draw odds going off at +245.

"My goal against Buffon was pointless really, it's pretty much just anecdotal", Mbappe said. "It's a great achievement", Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci said.

"This Juve is stronger than it was in 2015".

The 34-year-old had only left the Nou Camp last summer, when he was unable to come to an agreement with club officials over a new deal as he eventually left on a free transfer.

He now has a chance to win a remarkable fourth Champions League title. "I think Juventus have a very good chance of winning", Allegri said after the match at the Juventus Stadium.
