How much do you feel Nedved's absence could be important?
The loss of Nedved is unquestionable. He is valuable to the team as he gives Juventus that extra threat. He contributes a lot to the workrate of the whole team and produces and creates goals. All of these things, we maay miss from Nedved on the finals. But it is also a good reason for the whole squad to step-up which may make them even more dangerous when Nedved is around.
What are Juventus' advantages over Milan, and from what should Juventus be especially careful of?
Juventus' advantage over Milan in my personal opinion is that they have had a rougher spell in the Champions League. Because of this, they have become harder mentally and physically. This has molded them to become a more compact team. They have experienced the extremes in this tournament, learned to exert themselves to the limit, to never give-up, and therefore, they can go the extra-mile.
Milan on the other hand may have had a breeze, except for the semi-finals in which they seemed to have a hard time breaking down Internazionale.
Juventus should be careful with Milan's strikers as they are very pacey. Despite that, Juve seem to be in control of every other aspect in the game.
Is it a different feelin as it's an all italian final, and if so, why?
It surely is a different feeling having both finalists from Italy. It shows the calibre of Italian football, how much it has risen from all odds. Calcio has showed to the rest of the world on their way to the finals the overall quality of its game. How it is balanced in every aspect, from attack to defense. Come the 28th, the two teams will be more relaxed and be more comfortable to try new things as they have already achieved something in unity for one purpose, and that is to prove that their style has out-classed everyone else in the competition this year. One thing is for sure, we will see an attractive game in the finals.
Would you have prefered to meet a side from another country? again, why?
I would have preferred to meet Inter as we have had a better record against them. There would be no specific preference as to which nation to face in the final. We are just glad that we didn't have to face another Italian club on the way to the finals.
I hope this helps. But I have one question for you Amir, are you asking these questions to Milan fans too? If so, would you be able to show us their reactions? I would love to hear their thoughts. Thanks and Good Luck!
