Barcelona take on Juventus on Saturday in a highly anticipated Uefa Champions League final clash. With just few days to the game, FlyBarca outlines 7 reasons why the Catalans will surely come out victorious.
With both teams fighting for the treble (League, League Cup and UCL), the game will no doubt be a tough tie, however, here are 7 major factors that makes La Blaugrana distant favourites.
7 Reasons Why Barcelona Will Defeat Juventus In The UCL Final.
1. The Hunger – Aka ‘These guys want this trophy.’
Of course the Juventus players are hungry for the trophy too but the hunger in the hearts of the Barcelona players are burning – ten times hotter than Hell fire and the Sun combined. Just look at Luis Suarez when he is playing, he could trade his two eyes for glory. Look at Rakitic, Jordi Alba, Ter Stegen, Neymar – players who are world class but are yet to lay hands on the UCL trophy. They will do anything to win this trophy, it’s a win-or-burst affair.
2. Xavi Is Leaving – Aka ‘A happy send forth party in Berlin.’
Xavi is playing his 900th career game and his last for Barcelona, the team do not only want to win for themselves, but also want to give Xavi a happy finish to his Barca career. Trust me this will click. Xavi will smile after the final whistle.
3. Barcelona’s Playing Style – Aka ‘Juventus cannot cope.’
Barcelona plays possession football and have really improved in set pieces. Also, their high pressing when not with the ball is out of this world. They will limit Juventus’ attacking with their recent deadly counter attacking game plan. Juventus will have to be above extraordinary to content with these nemeses that has caught up with Barca’s previous opponents. Honestly, Juventus will suffer.
4. It’s The Game Of Luisito’s Carrer – Aka ‘Suarez is freaking ready.’
The Uruguayan has said it before that it is his dream to win the UCL. Looking at his previous game, you’ll notice he did not play with all his might. He is keeping himself fully fit for the final. This is his chance of getting his hands on the biggest trophy of his career and trust me, he will not miss this chance.
5. No Samba Rainbow flick – Aka ‘Neymar won’t take anything for granted.’
Neymar is a Brazilian, and loves to catch fun as always, but for 90 minutes on June 6 in Berlin, the star will play as if his life depends on it. Maybe if Barca gets a 3-goal lead with 10 minutes left to play, then we will enjoy a tip of what happened against Athletic Bilbao. I loved that!
6. The Messi Factor – Aka ‘You ain’t gonna stop me!”
Whoops! Messi is really a strong factor. The man is like 350 extra players. He has 20 goals in 23 finals and showed how destructive he can be after tearing Athletic Bilbao apart in the Copa final. Chiellini and Co. will have to put up a god-like performance to stop this dude. And guess what?! He wants his Ballon d’Or back.
7. MSN Still Exist – Aka ‘007: Liscense to Kill!’
Juventus have played 58 games in all competitions this season and none of their opponents have scored more than 2 goals in a game against them. They are arguably the best defensive side in Europe but in Berlin, they will face one of the greatest attacking trio in the history of the game. 120 goals and 55 assists is not an easy task. Just like the Rule of Law, Messi-Neymar-Suarez are no respecter of person or perhaps any football team. Juve will need the services of Merlin and Harry Porter to stop this trident.
Juventus cannot be totally written off. Like Mascherano said, nobody is Invincible. But something is certain, a Juventus team on a good day cannot beat this Barca team, they will need one thing – LUCK.
June 6 is the date, 7:45pm CET. You miss it, you miss out.
