20:35 The match is preceded by a closing ceremony of the most lucrative club competition. 

20:00 With 45 minutes remaining before kick-off, all eyes are on Cardiff! 

18:00 Ronaldo also became the only player in Champions League history to score consecutive hat-tricks in knockout stage matches.

17:30 Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to reach 100 career Champions League goals this season.

The Portuguese also tied Lionel Messi's record of seven Champions League career hat-tricks.

16:30 If Madrid beat Juventus, the Spanish side will become the first team to successfully defend the title since AC Milan in 1990.

Juventus will become the ninth European side to record a treble if they beat Madrid, having already won the Coppa Italia and Serie A this season.

15:30 The teams have met in Europe's top-level club competition on 18 previous occasions, ending with eight wins apiece and two draws between them.

15:00 Italian champions Juventus have won the competition twice before, in 1985 and 1996.

Spanish champions Real Madrid have won on 11 previous occasions in 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1966, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2014, and 2016.

14:00 Real, crowned La Liga champions for the first time since 2012 last week, are the favourites after banging in 32 goals in 12 games in the competition this season.

13:45 Arrigo Sacchi's great Milan side were the last to be crowned European champions for a second year running in 1990, but since the competition morphed into the Champions League that feat has proved beyond even the most expensively assembled teams.

13:30 Centre stage, as he so often is, will be Cristiano Ronaldo, whose lust for goals has taken Los Blancos to within touching distance of a 12th European title after they took their 11th a year ago by beating Atletico Madrid.

13:00 Others include Juve keeper Gianluigi Buffon potentially becoming the oldest player to lift the trophy or Real coach Zinedine Zidane, twice a Champions League runner-up with Juve, contriving to break the hearts of those who once idolised him.

12:40 Cardiff's iconic Millennium Stadium provides a fitting venue for a mouthwatering final full of delicious sub-plots, one of which could see Welsh wizard Gareth Bale make a triumphant return to the valleys of his birth.

12:00 Real Madrid's irresistible attack slams into Juventus's seemingly immovable defence on Saturday when the free-scoring Spanish aristocrats hope to become the first club to win the Champions League in successive seasons.

Venue: National Stadium (Cardiff (Caerdydd))
