    I'd honestly hate to see us draw Juve.

    Just don't look like conceding.

    Barcelona not renewing Alves' contract was a major mistake. * has been outstanding in Europe this season.

    The Juve defence is human after all.

    Barzagli and Bonucci are both world class but neither gets the recognition they should.

    Chiellini is another great centre half with fantastic spirit and aggression and seems to get all the plaudits from the UK based media based on his warrior image, but is the dodgiest and the most likely to make a mistake.

    The other two are simply faultless.

    I don't think Barzagli has made an error in terms of marking and positioning since about 2007 and is the perfect centre half for any team playing with any style. He is combative, alert, disciplined, experienced, technical, composed. Everything you'd want in a centre back. He is so underrated for some reason.

    Bonucci gets plenty of plaudits for his on the ball game which is fair enough as his distribution and all round game is arguably the best in the world for a centre back along with Sergio Ramos.

    But this completely overlooks how good Bonucci is as an out and out defender. His reading of the game is second to none and is almost unbeatable in the air or on one v one situations. The best centre back in the world for me.

    A joy to watch that back three over the years with the legendary Buffon behind them. Every one of them productive on the ball as well.

    Juve were a terrible matchup for Monaco. Monaco are an inexperienced team who like to have a go and score goals. Juve eat teams like that up for breakfast. Much too savvy to lose to a team like Monaco. Pity, Monaco would have been a more interesting team to watch in the final.

    It's a Real Madrid v Juventus final. I know who I'm supporting.
