Massimiliano Allegri will field his own 'BBC'. with Barzagli, Bonucci, and Chiellini forming an imposing back-three.

They will be flanked by Brazilian wing-backs Dani Alves and Alex Sandro, and the former has not been afraid of goading Real Madrid in the build-up to the final.

Khedira returns having played 59 minutes in Juventus' final Serie A match against Bologna, after previously limping off in the Champions League semi-final against Monaco.

Look out for Argentine sensation Paolo Dybala, who often drifts to the right to combine with Dani Alves. 

Juventus XI: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Alves, Pjanic, Khedira, Alex Sandro; Dybala, Higuaín, Mandzukic.

Real Madrid team news

As expected, Zinedine Zidane has opted to continue with Isco, rather than reintroducing Gareth Bale. The Welshman is, by his own admission, not fully fit. 

Carvajal returns to the side at right-back following a hamstring injury.

There is no space in the matchday squad for James Rodríguez or Lucas Vázquez. 

Real Madrid XI: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric; Isco, Benzema, Ronaldo.
