In detail, the most important things that Massimiliano Allegri said:
"In 2015 we went to the final and we deserved it, but also probably we didn't have a strong motivation, maybe we didn't feel confident, we didn't have confidence, we didn't feel good enough after many years of mediocrity in the Champions League.
We didn't go to the CL final by chance, but we didn't expect to win. This year is different. Last year we had a good year, but we were eliminated by Bayern in the last minute. We have gradually matured. Now things are completely different.
"We will face tomorrow's match with absolute calm and serenity. We worked all year for this. It will not be easy, as Real are the champions defending the title, but we know what we have built over time, we will try to give something more in relation to Real ".
For the eleven: "I haven't made any decisions for the 11th yet. The match may last 90 minutes, maybe 120. We have a new way of playing in the last 3-4 months, while when you try to win in 90 minutes you want a specific system, but you also want good alternatives. I have to think about both cases in order for my team to be competitive and at a high level throughout the match. "

As for Cristiano Ronaldo, Zidane said: "We are all on the same boat and some will have to play more and some less. Ronaldo cares about others. He wants more and more. Even in training he wants to win. He has something in him ... He is a born winner ".

The most important things that the leader of Juventus said:
"We feel the impetus of our fans, we feel the excitement and that's for sure. This is the strength that will keep us going if we suffer against Real Madrid, in order to resist. If I sleep at night? I sleep very well every day and this is what I suggest to my teammates, so that we are awake on the field. I can't give advice to anyone. "
For Cristiano: "Cristiano Ronaldo is a role model for everyone. Young and old. I say that at 39 I had nothing to learn about emotions, but this year I learned a lot by talking to Danny Alves. People like him, Cristiano, Messi can win without even impressing, remaining humble and willing to learn. Danny Alves is an optimistic guy, we've talked about this trophy when we got here and he told me we could do well. For the Golden Ball, I think it's a distinction that satisfies you but is of secondary importance. I want to win tomorrow and the others do not touch me. I may think about it in the future, but not now. "
For Zidane on the bench: "Often when a great player stops, he chooses to become a coach and seeing Zizu on the bench doesn't surprise me. He has kept the habit of winning, even if he has lost. I hope he will suffer tomorrow as well. "
