The big game is here! On Saturday, Juventus and Barcelona will go for the Treble as they clash at the Olympic Stadium of Berlin, and coach Massimiliano Allegri has already released his team's squad list for the biggest match of the season.

And, as the world knows, a huge blow to the lineup: Giorgio Chiellini, the leader of The Old Lady's defense, will miss the Final due to a calf injury that will force him out of the biggest game of his career. It's a huge headache for the Italian side boss. Along with Chiellini, Martín Cáceres, Kwadwo Asamoah and Rômulo are also out of the squad due to injuries.

After all, Allegri named 22 players to form the list, and he'll cut four before the game to form a definitive 18-man squad to be in uniform for Saturday's clash. The full list:

Goalkeepers: 1. Gianluigi Buffon, 30. Marco Storari, 34. Rubinho

Defenders: 5. Angelo Ogbonna, 15. Andrea Barzagli, 17. Paolo De Ceglie, 19. Leonardo Bonucci, 26. Stephan Lichtsteiner, 33. Patrice Evra

Midfielders: 6. Paul Pogba, 7. Simone Pepe, 8. Claudio Marchisio, 20. Simone Padoin, 21. Andrea Pirlo, 23. Arturo Vidal, 27. Stefano Sturaro, 37. Roberto Pereyra

Forwards: 9. Álvaro Morata, 10. Carlos Tévez, 11. Kingsley Coman, 14. Fernando Llorente, 32. Alessandro Matri
