- Story Text: Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos said his side will leave their illustrious European history to one side in Saturday's Champions League final against Juventus and try to imagine they are vying to win the trophy for the first time, but their supporters are counting on Los Blancos to make history on Saturday (June 3) when they play Juventus in Cardiff.
"We will win. We will make history again like we do in almost all the finals we play. Real always wins. We hope they win against Juve," said Manuel, a Real Madrid fan who was already at the Bernabeu where tens of thousands of fans will be able to watch the match on large screens.
Real won the first five editions of the European Cup between 1956 and 1960 and are in their 15th final, bidding for a record-extending 12th crown and for the honour of being the only team to successfully defend the trophy in the Champions League era.
Juventus meanwhile are competing in their ninth final, having lost in six of their previous eight appearances, beating only Liverpool in 1985 and Ajax in 1996.
