Juventus will have to be at their best in Cardiff - Bonucci

Bonucci Juventus now certainties in Champions League final

Italy worldwide Bonucci said a more mature Juventus - an immovable force in Serie A as they seek European glory - have shown they belong on the big stage, having lost to Barcelona in the 2014-15 Champions League decider.

FC Barcelona have been struggling to replace Dani Alves at right-back, but they apparently snubbed the chance to re-sign the in-form star in January.

It is now confirmed that Real Madrid will face Juventus in the 2017 Champions League final at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff on Saturday June 3. Entering Tuesday, just four teams remain in Monaco, Juventus, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

The Old Lady is the only European squad in race to win the treble this season and the performances of Dani Alves were crucial to help Juventus to reach the final as the Brazilian registered two assists and scored one goal in Juventus' aggregate 4-1 win over Monaco. Alves' wonderful cross from the right was delivered flawless over the head of Kamil Glik and into the path of Higuain who slid in at the back post to make it 2-0 in the 59th minute.

Leonardo Bonucci admits Juventus will likely need to produce their "best performance of all time" to win the Champions League in Cardiff next month.

It was the first time that Juventus have conceded in the tournament's knockout stage this season.

"I think we have a good chance of winning the trophy", Allegri said. "We have all grown since 2015, including myself, and getting to the final is no easy thing".

"We had a fantastic midfield when we played in Berlin, but I don't think we're any worse off this season". I don't score often so every goal is pretty special to me. There are numerous same players but with more experience of this level.

The Brazilian enjoyed eight successful years at Barcelona before deciding to move on last summer.

The results were initially encouraging and Mbappe squeezed a fifth-minute shot past Gianluigi Buffon from a tight angle and held his head in his hands as it came back off the inside of the post, although the offside flag had come up.
