When the Champions League final begins on Sunday, there will be more than just the usual selection of the big names in action.
The big question will be who is the best?
A match that is all about who is going to score first or last and who gets the better of their opponent will surely decide the outcome.
And with the Champions league already set to be a highly entertaining game, it is easy to see why this has attracted such attention.
The match is scheduled to be played between two sides that both have Champions League experience, Napoli and Roma.
This match has already been called the most important of the Champions, with the two sides going through a lengthy period of injury.
So how did it come about that the two teams are set to meet in the final?
This was all set to happen before the start of the season.
Juventus, in the Championsleague for the first time in its history, won the league for the second time in the space of two seasons, beating Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
The Bianconeri’s Champions League run in 2016-17 was their best in the top flight.
Juventus also finished third in Serie A, with six wins in seven matches.
Roma finished fourth in Serie B with seven wins in eight matches.
The Bianconero were drawn in the group stages of the 2018/19 Champions League.
They beat Real Madrid in the first round, then lost to Boca Juniors in the second round.
They then lost 1-0 to Atlético Madrid in their quarter-final, but were drawn against Barcelona in the semi-final.
In the last four matches, Juventus beat Atlétic 3-1, Barça 2-1 and Juventus 1-1.
They have also beaten Atlética in the last three seasons, drawing 3-2 with Real Madrid.
In all of those matches, they scored four goals.
The last time Juventus had a goal against Barça was in March of this year, when the Bianconeros had an away goal disallowed.
In the match, Roma are coming off a 3-0 defeat by Juventus, with an injured Marcelo Bielsa leading the way.
In front of an international crowd, Roma have the advantage of playing in front of their home crowd.
But their away record is much better, with wins against Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
Roma have scored four times in three away games, and have won two.
A key moment for the Biancolas in the match will be when the home fans sing the Marseillaise.
This song was played when the team scored their first goal in the Europa League last year, and was a hit with the home supporters.
The song is sung with an emphasis on unity and togetherness, as opposed to one of celebration and victory.
This is a match that both sides have been waiting for.
Roma are currently in fourth place in Serie D, three points above their current position.
In Italy, it means that they have a realistic chance of progressing from the group stage.
A win against Napoli could give them hope of progressing further, and they have the added bonus of facing an opponent that has lost to them before in the competition.
If they do, it would mean that they would play in the league on Sunday and not the Champions competition.
As the season continues, there are two sides in the race for a place in the UEFA Champions League group stages.
Napoli are currently sitting in sixth, four points behind Inter, who are just three points behind them.
It has been a difficult season for the Rossoneri, and the gap between them and Napoli has grown to a staggering five points.
Roma, meanwhile, have won only one of their last eight matches, and will be hoping that this win against Roma helps them progress further.
This game will be a huge test for both sides, with both teams having experienced great success in the past.
It will also give both sides a chance to prove themselves in the international competition.
Roma’s international fixtures have been plagued by injuries, and a number of players have missed the European Championships.
Napolini is also a man who does not take too kindly to his team’s performance, and has not been able to match the form that they showed in the Confederations Cup.
If these two sides can draw the draw, the final will be decided on a day that is almost too late for both teams.
Both sides have their fans, and both are desperate to see their respective teams win.
Juventus are looking to go all out to qualify for the Champions Cup for the fifth consecutive season, while Napoli will be looking to get back to the Champions’ League after two years of suffering the Champions.
The draw will be made on Sunday evening, and there is no guarantee that any teams will be able to get through.
