I'd darely like to see Juventus win this time around in an effort to exorcise the demons of the 2003 Final defeat at the hands of fellow Italian rivals AC Milan. As someone stated in one of the earlier posts ans as most foootball fans know, the Champions League has been something of a bete noir for the Bianconeri. Had they won the three Finals they have contested since 1997, they would arguably be considered to be the European club of the decade. Everything is in place for La Vecchia Signora to secure that ever-elusive third European Cup -- a manager with a winning record to die for, a first rate goalkeeper on his way back to his very best, a miserly defence, an influential goalscoring midfielder, and strikers who make the most of opponents' mistakes. I would loathe another fall at the final hurdle.
