A very nice set of semi-finals, and now the final is set.
Barcelona somewhat coasted over an unexpectedly injured Bayern Munich, while Juventus gritted out a tough and spirited pair of matches with Real Madrid.
Surely Barcelona will be the massive favorites heading in to next month's final.
But the Juventus team is solid, confident, and capable. They played as a team and looked very strong in both matches.
And they weren't a boring team, either; they were fast and well-coordinated.
I am hopeful that Juve can give Barcelona a good competition, and surely after going up against the fearsome Real Madrid offense (at one point Madrid had Christiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Javier Hernandez, James Rodriguez, and Marcelo all in attack at once!) Juve must feel that they can go head-to-head with the Messi/Neymar/Suarez line.
Make your plans now!
