Brazilian defender Alves, Leonardo Bonucci, Paulo Dybala and Sami Khedira were among the silverware-chasing players to take their seats.

They touched down in Wales on Friday before they travelled to their team hotel as they gear up for the blockbuster clash with the Spanish giants.

Juve will stay at the Vale Resort in Hensol, which is fully booked out for guests of the Welsh Government, FAW and the club.

The four-star hotel has plenty on offer for the players including a darts board, table tennis table and fusball table inside the recreational room — and seats have been lined up for briefings ahead of the final.
