The 2014-15 campaign might be done and dusted for Chelsea and its fans, but before we reluctantly start watching cricket and golf for the next three months in a futile bid to fill the football-shaped hole in our hearts, first we must determine where the Champions League title goes.
Berlin’s Olympiastadion plays host as Barcelona and Juventus slug it out for European glory on Saturday, with both sides hoping to complete part three of a treble after dominating their domestic league and cups this season.
By virtue of their star-studded 120-goal triumvirate of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, the Catalans go into the contest as favourites for victory in what would prove a memorable first season in charge for coach Luis Enrique.
However, the Blaugrana’s attacking trident could yet just meet its match this weekend as Massimiliano Allegri’s side – who have conceded just six times on the road to Berlin – bring a water-tight defence into the showpiece.
Will the underdogs prevail or will Messi-inspired Barcelona live up to their favourites tag? Time will tell.
Kickoff is scheduled for 19:45 and we at Football Fancast will be bringing you all of the action with our live commentary in association with William Hill – your one-stop shop for the latest and greatest odds.
