Juve are better equipped to beat them in a final than over 2 legs, so if they get by Monaco, which I expect, they can definitely score on Madrid and with their backline + Gigi they won't be giving up a ton of chances

I don't think Madrid would be massive favorites, think it's a 60/40 type thing

well that Ajax team is a lot of fun. Extremely young and talented group, that should be good news for the national team as well. They've all but reached the EL final now after an impressive 4-1 home win against Lyon. Someone on another forum has suggested an Ajax-United final would be "The Beauty and the Beast", which I kind of agree with

The good news for "the Beast" is that Smalling, Jones, Bailly and Pogba are all available tomorrow Shaw is out for the season though. Poor kid can't catch a break.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were both gone this summer. Which is a bit crazy because Smalling was excellent under van Gaal and Shaw once looked like an upcoming superstar ... but yeah, they both are injured frequently and seem to be a bit frail on the mental side, and Mourinho has no time for players like that. The thing is that I'm sure they'll regret selling Shaw ... there's still a lot of potential and a patient manager will get the best out of him.

Higuain scores. Pretty much mission impossible for Monaco now.

Both legs are dusted. Should make a great final. Best offense vs defense.

going to be a great final. Juventus look like the real deal, both offensively and defensively. I'm always shocked with how much ease they turn "old" and "past it" full-backs into great assets again - Dani Alves was outstanding today.

Monaco has had a fantastic year, but they can't compete with the very best ... they are not good enough defensively. Bakayoko was at fault for both goals today.

Cant agree more. I hope they win it.

Oh good, one of these games.

United is making an average pro keeper, into a world beater.

typical day in the office. Both Mkhitaryan and Lingard HAVE to score there.

goalscoring is soooo overrated.

to be fair, Romero has kept 10 clean sheets in 15 games this season. He's been solid and a reliable #2.

going to be a fun final for Edwin van der Sar.

hes a good #2, I think QoC has a lot to do with his stats

but the build up and story of the match would be United leaving their best player out, and any mistake he made would be magnified and if it somehow lost them the game Jose gets roasted and United lose 40m+

yeah I get that, FWIW I'm 100% sure it'd be DDG in the final. I'm happy Mourinho's given Romero the semifinal though, he's deserved it.

Real Madrid paying €45m for a 16-year-old. Football has officially gone bonkers.

http://en.as.com/en/2017/05/08/footb...05_869838.html

Real are also close to signing Theo Hernandez from Atletico for €30m. Looks like Perez is coming out guns blazing this summer.

Juve on a bit of a roll right now.

Up 2-0 on Monaco in the 2nd leg and 4-0 overall.

Second goal from Alves was an absolute beauty as well. Really capping off a great semi-finals for him after he set up both goals in the first leg, and put in the cross for the opener tonight as well.

So FIFA have obviously had the Pogba transfer documents since August, but only after a Football Leak report they've decided that maybe the could have had a look at them. Perfectly sums up that disgusting, chaotic, corrupt band of idiots.
