Luis Enrique already has a place in the Barcelona history as a player and he made it better by winning the league and the Copa del Rey in his first season at the club. He is on course to making it even better by winning the Champions League when Barcelona take on Juventus in the final on June 6.
The Spanish club are overwhelming favourites to win the title for the first time since 2011. Juventus have not won it since 1996 and their team looks make in comparison with the Barcelona front three.
Players like Gianluigi Buffon and Chiellini have admitted that stopping the front three of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, and Neymar will be the biggest concern for Juventus. They say that it will be tough to stop them almost entirely. Hence, Juventus will be focusing on doing their best in the match. The Italian team have already been beaten in one final back in 2003. This almost represents the final opportunity to win the title for goalkeeper Buffon, who is considered as one of the best in the world. The Italian has won every major honour like the World Cup, but the Champions League title continues to evade him.
“We are almost there and it would only be the second time that a club like this, with so much history at a high level, has been able to do it. It will be difficult but that is what we are working for now. It really would be superb if we could do that. We were better than Athletic in our play and now we have to beat Juventus. We are fortunate as we see Messi all the time in training. In training he actually does things more difficult and I am looking forward to watching this one on the television,” said Enrique.
