LEAPYGUIDE.COMXavi Hernandez rate Juventus and Real Madrid have a balanced chance to win the Champions League 2016/2017. But as Barcelonista, he supports Juventus.

"I see chances for both teams in the 50-50 finals, a final that is always hard to predict and there are no obvious favorites," Xavi told sc.qa.

"Juventus have done everything well for many years, and they are a big club and have not won the Champions League so many years now, they will be determined to straighten that record.

However, Xavi has set his choice to support Juventus appear as champions. One reason is that he is a former Barcelona player and a native of Catalan, another reason is the presence of Gianluigi Buffon and Dani Alves.

"Winning the Champions League will be a top moment in Buffon's career, I want to see him win it." As a Barcelona fan, it makes sense and natural to want Juventus to win, "he continued.

"But I also want them to win for Buffon and Dani Alves, who are also worthy of the trophy, Dani is an impressive player who has made a difference on the way to the finals and I have a very good relationship with him," Xavi said.
