War of the World.. FA Cup Final
Wembley Stadium plays host to 90.000 fans tonight as supporters of Juventus and Montpellier stroll into town for the WOTW FA Cup Final.
1st Division giants Juventus are strong favourites to claim the silverware against the 3rd Division French cracks, but as Montpellier have shown all through the rounds, it's what you do on the day that counts, and on their day, the classy French outfit could beat anyone.
Referee Barry Knight takes charge of his first final and the first ever meeting of these two sides in front of a sell-out crowd.
Both clubs have players joint top in the Golden Boot award for highest scorer in the competition with Higuain and Willian both on 3, and both teams have almost full squads to choose from with just Cacares missing for Juventus through injury and Ait-Fana suspended for Montpellier, although it is doubtful that either would have got into the starting eleven anyway as their Superstar filled squads battle it out for starting places.
Both teams started with bye's in a tournament that neither would have even thought about reaching the Final of, before both winning their 2nd round matches, with Montpellier beating fellow French side Rennes 2-1 while Juventus thrashed Santos 3-0.
Round 4 saw them both taking on Dutch opponents where Juventus had a narrow 1-0 win in Amsterdam while Montpellier demolished Feyenoord 6-0, scoring 5 first half goals in the process.
The quarter-finals saw all four games going to penalties with Montpellier going through against Athletico Madrid after a no score draw and Juventus going through after a 2-2 draw with Benfica.
Both teams were drawn away in the Semi-finals and the French outfit won on penalties again, this time against Stuttgart after a 2-2 draw as Juventus were beating Chelsea 2-1.
players to look out for are Chiellini and Vucinic for the Italians and Busquets and Hugain for the French outfit.
some people, including many experts have already said that 3rd Division Montpellier already have their name on the Cup after their Penalty shoot=out wins but Juventus insiders know that it will take more than just luck to deny the 'Old Lady' another trophy..........prediction 4-2

Neymar MUST move to Europe if he wants to get any better...If Suarez keeps scoring goals..despite Liverpool's bad form he should rise to 93..I think you should keep Suarez and Enrique.
