The UEFA Champions League Final is on schedule for June 6 in Berlin with Barcelona and Juventus reaching the championship stage after wins over Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in the semifinals and the match will be from the Olympiastadion in Germany with players like Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in action.

The teams have both been to eight Champions League finals and Barcelona will be looking to win for the fifth time after taking things in 1992, 2006, 2009 and 2011. Real Madrid won the title last season over Atletico Madrid and now Barca will try and keep the title in La Liga over the Serie A club. Barcelona won the La Liga title this year, while Juventus ended up as champions of Serie A in Italy.

Barcelona comes in after winning their group in the group stage, while Juventus came out of that round as the runners up in their group. The knockout phase saw Barcelona get past Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich, while Juventus won over Borussia Dortmund, Monaco and Real Madrid.

The game is on TV from Fox starting at 2:45 pm ET from Germany and the match will be streaming from the Fox Soccer 2Go website. Juventus pulled a 1-1 tie with Real Madrid to take the aggregate in the matchup 3-2 to advance and now they have Barcelona. Barca came in after a strong performance in two matches against Bayern Munich, taking things 5-2 on aggregate.

Juventus had seven wins in 12 games played and scored 16 goals in the Champions League, while Barca had 10 wins and 28 goals scored. Suarez has played better as the season has gone on, as it took time for him to get acclimated with the team following his suspension after the World Cup. Suarez now will face the man he bit in that tournament and he will play alongside Messi and Neymar as Barca tries to get the title back.
