3) Luka Modric – Real Madrid
The Croatian midfielder Luka Modric is probably one of the world’s most underrated midfielders at the moment. Despite Real boasting the likes of Benzema and Ronaldo at the top, they would be just as useless as a piece of wood without the help of a carpenter. The magic midfielder could carve out the pass which could lead the Los Blancos to their 12th UCL title.
It is sure that Juventus would try to put more pressure on the midfield engine of the Los Blancos if they want themselves to stand a chance to win the UCL.
4) Paulo Dybala- Juventus
The 23-year-old Argentinian Paulo Dybala has been extremely impressive this season. Dybala has emerged from the shadows of the previous strikers, Alvaro Morata and fellow Argentinian Higuain.
The left-foot of the 23-year-old has been the case for comparison with the left-foot of fellow Argentinian and probably one of the best to step on the football field- Lionel Messi. His idol became his rival when they met each other in the quarter-finals of the tournament, with the youngster scoring two important goals in the first leg to take the team home. It would be interesting to see if he takes the route of his idol and scores an amazing solo goal in front of Sergio Ramos and co.
5) Dani Alves- Juventus
The fifth choice would be difficult for any footballing fan to choose from, but Dani Alves certainly deserves a spot on the list of players to look out for. The 34-year-old Brazilian joined Juventus after his contract got over at the Camp Nou. Many believed that this was the first sign of him finally slowing down, but he has risen in spectacular fashion over the course of this season.
The 34-year-old veteran has been a man on a mission for the Fat Lady and if he manages to repeat the performance he had in the semi-finals, Juventus almost but certainly will keep a hand on to the trophy. In what would be a vital contest, the Brazilian and the Portuguese forward Ronaldo, who would lock horns on the left-side of the pitch.
