It's the first time the final will be held at Millennium Stadium.

He may have lifted the trophy three times in the last eight years, but as his performances against Monaco showed, that desire to be the best never gets old. Mbappe, who was not yet born when Buffon made his FIFA World Cup™ debut with Italy, has nevertheless warned that the tie is far from over: "We know it's hard, but we're going to do all we can to play a great game".

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid meet on Wednesday for the other second-leg match, with defending champion Real Madrid leading 3-0.

Alves' former club Barcelona have been involved in 12 finals, but Alves has already surpassed that total.

Alves celebrated by drawing a heart in the air which he said was for his girlfriend.

But it's the stats following Alves' performance that proves he is one of Europe's finest players of a generation.

After Juve's success, much of the attention has been place of goalie Gigi Buffon and right-back Dani Alves. "But when a player is good, he's good in June, September and the following June... he hasn't turned mediocre".

Sensational youngster Mbappe added another memorable goal to his promising future as he did well on Portugal midfielder Joao Moutinho's pass from the left in the 69th minute. I'm happy because it helped the team win and reach the final.

The Argentinian's brace has put La Vecchia Signora on the verge of a trip to Cardiff and their second final in three years, following defeat to Barcelona in Berlin in 2015.

"Two years ago we had an impressive midfield", Bonucci said.

That 18-year-old player is Kylian Mbappe, the France forward who wasn't even born when Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon made his Serie A debut in 1995. We can't just throw away everything we have done so far.

Trezeguet, now an ambassador for the Italian champions having represented them in is playing days, feels Juve now have the capability to stand toe-to-toe with Zinedine Zidane's competition holders.
