The Brazilian right-back won the trophy three times with Barcelona while Juve are searching for their third triumph in the competition, and their first since 1996, having lost six of their eight European Cup/UEFA Champions League finals to date, including the one against Alves's Barcelona two years ago.

Leonardo Bonucci admits Juventus will likely need to produce their "best performance of all time" to win the Champions League in Cardiff next month.

The Italian giants are on course for a sixth straight Serie A title and this week, reached the final of the Champions League by beating Monaco 2-1, where Alves scored the victor, for a 4-1 aggregate victory. Coming away from the Stade Louis II with a convincing 2-0 win puts the Bianconeri in the driving seat to reach the ninth final in the club's illustrious history, and while Juventus can take nothing for granted in the second leg against a team who have set the competition alight and deserve to reach the Last 4, destiny appears to be on their side.

CHELSEA boss Antonio Conte is keen to snap-up Juventus star Dani Alves after his stunning Champions League form. We've achieved a dream we had since pre-season in Melbourne, we played so many games and it's not over yet.

Jardim said he expected Juve to be facing Real in Cardiff and said the Italian side would be anything but underdogs. It would hurt the Italian to lose it to another Spanish giant for the second time in three years.
