Alves enjoys a second wind at Juventus

"Today we learnt a lot, I learnt a lot and we'll try to come back next season better armed".

Juve could become the second Italian side to win the league, cup and Champions League Treble after Jose Mourinho's achievement in 2010.

Juve last won the European Cup in 1996, beating Ajax on penalties in Rome, but they failed to retain the trophy as Borussia Dortmund triumphed in the Munich final 12 months later. We shouldn't be conceding like that just because we switched off.

It is also the first time since 2002 that a final will be played in the United Kingdom, but outside of England.

Juventus, from Turin, is the team that most deserves to be in the final.

As for Monaco's performances in this season's Champions League, Mbappe saw them as valuable experience. "I don't score very often, so I'm happy, but in a way I prefer the assist to a goal, so everyone goes home happy". We've achieved a dream we had since pre-season in Melbourne, we played so many games and it's not over yet. It had been in the air for about 10 minutes, we were letting them run past us. Work pays, we can see the success of everything we've put in place. "Our objective is getting closer and closer and we have to make a last effort to finish the job, because we have achieved nothing yet".

They had reached the Champions League final in 2015 when they lost 1-3 to FC Barcelona. This time, it could be Juventus' year, especially after it eased past the Catalan team 3-0 on aggregate in the quarterfinals.

Dani Alves joined Juventus as a free agent last summer and the former Barcelona star has added some more personality and technical skills to an already unbelievable squad capable of winning five successive Serie A titles.

Juventus coach Massimiliamo Allegri brought in a 4-2-3-1 formation in January, moving Pjanic to a deeper midfield role alongside Sami Khedira, with Juan Cuadrado, Dybala and Mandzukic sitting just behind Higuain. "We are solid at the back and nearly always manage to score upfront".
