Kick-off is fast approaching in Berlin, and all the pre-match hype is building to a crescendo. All the talk of the key areas in tonight's match, the narratives to look out for and general predictions -- now it's your turn to put your neck on the line and predict the score of tonight's UEFA Champions League final between FC Barcelona and Juventus FC. How do you see events unfolding tonight? Are you one of those Cules that believes Barcelona will cruise to victory, or are you a pessimist that feels as though Juventus could shock the world?
The football world have had their say; former Barcelona defender, Michael Reiziger believes that while Juventus defeated Real Madrid, FC Barcelona are unstoppable. There are others, like Marco Van Basten who are backing Juve to emerge triumphant. Vitor Baia thinks that Barcelona could massacre the Serie A champions, a sentiment echoed by Deco, Cafu and Eric Abidal -- but really, in my eyes at least, it all comes back to one point: something that Robert Prosinecki mentioned to UEFA's official website.
Juventus are not without a chance, but Barcelona have the best player who ever walked the earth. When you see Messi you realise that we have never seen anything like it before and no one in the near future will see football like it again.
Yep, that's pretty much it -- how can anyone possibly bet against a team that contains Lionel Messi, let alone Messi in this form, with Neymar and Luis Suarez in support?
Whatever the case, it's your turn; predict the score of tonight's match by commenting with your prediction below. Best of luck!
