Kaka backing Madrid in UCL final


May 20, 2017

Former Real Madrid and Brazil star Ricky Kaka admits he will be cheering for Real Madrid in the Champions League Final but has warned them to look out for Juventus' Dani Alves in June 3 final in Cardiff.

Kaka spent four years at the Spanish club between 2009 and 2013, prompting the former Milan star to back Los Blancos over Juve even if he feel that in-form Alves can be crucial in the eventual outcome of the contest.

"It's a beautiful match, the clash between Real Madrid's great attack and Juventus' great defence," Kaka told Italian media. "It's the game that everyone wants to see. Cristiano [Ronaldo] may decide it one box and Higuain in the other."

"Another key player for Juve too is Dani Alves, who's having a great season," said Kaka.

Alves scored three goals and provided two assists for Juventus in his last five games including starring roles against Monaco in the Champions League semi-finals and in the Coppa Italia final against Lazio.

"I won't give anything away on who I think will win, but with my Merengue [Madrid] heart, I'm cheering for Madrid," Kaka said.
