Portrait of the European Cup at UEFA Headquarters

The European Cup is at stake today, and Villa fans will remember that they left their own mark on the competition that became the Champions League, when they won it back in 1982.

The Champions League final will be held tonight as Juventus take on Real Madrid in Cardiff at 19:45 BST.

There’s a number of narratives to this final - namely that Gigi Buffon, at age 40, has a chance to grab a trophy that has eluded him throughout his career. Also - Zidane’s Madrid have a date with history; if they win, they will become the first team in almost thirty years to retain the European Cup. He’ll have to beat his former club to do it, though.
