Can Juve find a way to blunt Barca’s attacking threat?

champions-league-trophy So is there a way to stop Barcelona the unstoppable? 120 goals scored this season by the MSN trident. A final swansong from Xavi. A defence that has been meaner and more solid than any other in Spain this season and just when you think that you’ve stopped them from scoring, full back Jeremy Mathieu provides a deadly aerial threat from set pieces.

If anyone can stop Barca, then look no further than Juventus, with the rock solid, dependable and inspirational Gigi Buffon, supported by defenders Bonucci and Chiellini. If there is one area of the field where Juve have the upper hand it is in midfield, where il direttore Andrea Pirlo will direct operations, ably supported by the mercurial talents of Pogba and Vidal; whilst in attack Carlos Tévez has been outstanding, both in Serie A and in the Champions League.

Both teams are chasing a remarkable treble, but will it be favourites Barcelona to come out on top or The Bianconeri to claim their first Champions League title in almost 20 years?
