Why Real Madrid won the final against Juventus

  A better second half performance Real Madrid looked leggy as they were in quest for the Dup Decima. Allegri’s Juventus started the game with a fine tempo after pressurising the Madrid players and forcing them to make mistakes.

Top Arsenal transfer targets this summer

5) Jordan Pickford The English shot-stopper had an impressive season with Sunderland. While the Black Cats were awful, Pickford was the bright spot.
