Carlos Tevez’s Juventus and Javier Mascherano’s Barcelona are both gearing up for Saturday night’s Champions League Final in the knowledge that a win will secure them a trophy treble, just look at how far they’ve come!
The Italian and Spanish champions have already secured their domestic leagues and cups in impressive campaigns and know that only 90 minutes (plus potential extra-time and penalty-kicks) stand in the way of continental glory. The clash will see Massimiliano Allegri and Pep Guardiola face off in Berlin’s Olympiastadion and former Hammers Tevez and Mascherano will be directly facing off against each other in what is sure to be a well-contested final.
The Catalans are widely seen as favourites to lift the iconic trophy, but Juve are by no means out of the running after dispatching of Real Madrid in the semi-finals to ruin any hopes of a Clasico bout on the biggest stage.
The crunch match kicks off at 19:45 this Saturday and we at Forever West Ham will be providing updates and commentary as well as great bets on football in our Live Blog in association with William Hill.
