Both sides are aiming to become only the eighth team in history to achieve the magnificent feat of winning the treble as they go into the game having clinched a domestic double.

Juventus, who eased to the Serie A title by 17 points and beat Lazio in the Coppa Italia final, are as expected without key defender Giorgio Chiellini after he was ruled out during the week with a calf injury.

Otherwise, it is pretty much a routine line-up from the Old Lady with Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, Arturo Vidal and Carlos Tevez all in the team from the start.

Meanwhile, the La Liga champions are unchanged from the team that started last week’s Copa Del Rey final win over Athletic Bilbao and that means the brilliant front-three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar will be looking to add to their total of 120 goals between them.
