Champions League Final: Who will win the triple?

Tomorrow Barcelona take on Juventus in the Champions League Final in Berlin. As well as being crowned European Champions, there's an added incentive as whichever side wins will have won the triple.

The Olympic stadium in Berlin will play host to one of the biggest games of the season. The Champions League final, this year there's added glory for either side that wins as they will have won the triple (the domestic cup and league and Champions League).

The two sides Barcelona and Juventus have an array of talent available for the final and will have been preparing rigorously for the final.

Barcelona:

Barcelona's play style is a joy to behold with their, quick passing possession football as they look to tire the defence. Many expect German keeper Ter Stegen to start, who has been formidable in goal this season. With Busquets, Rakitic and Iniesta expected to be the midfield to put the ball through to the front three. The front-three for Barcelona of Messi, Neymar and Suarez have been in grat form this year scoring 120 goals between them with most defences crumbling against them. 

Manager - Luis Enrique, originally did not enjoy much success at Barcelona with many before the winter break questioning whether he was the right man at all. But the coach turned things around during January and that, now sees the side as one of the most consistent in the world. However, he will know that Juventus have been very tough to break down this campaign and contain threats of their own namely Carlos Tevez and Paul Pogba as well as stoic midfielder Andrea Pirlo.

Juventus:

Juventus have proved to once again be a formidable force in European football. After winning Seria A 17 points clear of second place. The Italians have relied on Buffon to get them through some tough games this year and will no doubt have him in goal again tomorrow. When trying to combat Barcelona's front three Juventus will need to rely on experience and speed with Bonucci and Evra expected to provide it at the back. Through the midfield is where most of Juventus' game is played with most balls going through Pirlo and on to Paul Pogba. The strikers Morata and Carlos Tevez will no doubt cause a concern to Barcelona's defence provided their side keep the ball enough to do so.

Manager - Massimo Allegri has turned his side into one of the brightest in Europe and many fans of the club are hoping he will be the man to bring the Champions League trophy back to the club after a five year absence. No doubt he will look to setup a strong defence and midfield that will be tough to break down, while still trying to play through Pirlo to set Carlos Tevez and Vidal loose.
