The supposed highly anticipated clash of the titans turned out to be an ultimately disappointing play from Juventus. They shortchanged football lovers of a final match totally made in heaven.
Maybe half bread is better than none. Thankfully, Real and Ronaldo (especially) did not make us settle for such after the half-time break.
There was not enough fuel for determination to claim the trophy or Real Madrid just simply burned Juventus out with sheer royal quality.
Who wanted it so badly more than anybody else in each team? Cristiano Ronaldo and Gianluigi Buffon.
Gigi wanted it more than CR7. Anybody with a good knowledge of Juve’s history can understand his overwhelming desire after a consecutive series of unfortunate past UEFA Champions League final matches featuring Juventus.
Old Buffon was the saddest man of the night.
Real Madrid. What a team! They only took another one chance to prove why they are the best football club in the world. They put up their best when it mattered the most — throughout the second half of the match.
There was almost little the Juventus coach could do against their might in the second half. No blame on him. Maybe his defensive inclination was not so right though. Very futile with the likes of the Galacticos.
Everybody knows they deserved another shiny silverware for the season.
