"My emotions will be different to those from a younger player, or those of Dani Alves, who has already won the Champions League", said the keeper.
But Zidane insists Real cannot be considered favourites against his former club, the Frenchman having spent five years of his playing career in Turin between 1996 and 2001.
"This is my moral imperative for this game and I hope I can manage to do that because our team is very compact and based on collaboration". I'm happy because I've never played him. "I got more than I gave, but that would be the ideal finale and people like fairytales". It would be the flawless finale. And while Buffon has paid tribute to the Frenchman's career, he says he would just have to deal with it.
And as Madrid aim to lift the trophy for a 12th time against Juventus in Cardiff on Saturday, Mijatovic told AS: "After you have retired you talk to more fans, you realise you have done something really special".
Former Real man Sami Khedira played in that game and is now expected to play in Cardiff after returning from injury. Mine is to defend, his is to attack. The Ballon d'Or would be gratifying, but it's secondary - the only thing that counts for me today is winning tomorrow. Juve's superior defensive nous could give them the edge, but nobody can match Ronaldo's knack for goals when it matters in this tournament.
It was a similar story in 2015, when Carlos Tevez and Alvaro Morata broke Real's hearts in the last four at the Santiago Bernabeu, before being taken apart by Los Blancos' bitter rivals Barcelona in the final.
"I sent Pique a ticket for the final but he hasn't answered me yet", Ramos said, with a grin on his face.
The former France captain was the jewel in the crown in the "Galactico" era - his wondrous volley in the 2002 Champions League final win over Bayer Leverkusen assuring that status.
"Until now he's been a revelation for me". We realise we're living something spectacular and let's see what happens. "There's nothing better in life than getting your reward, because you know how hard you've worked, how much you've sweated for it, and with teammates who've worked even more to get it". We have to think as if it were the first title we could ever win.
"That's for the history books", he said.
"Our objectives are much bigger than that". We need to make sure the dream comes reality and it would be something to finally win this trophy with Buffon. "We're hungry. We have a plate of food in front of us and we want to have it".
Rush said the next big football superstar could come from the area, adding: "We all came from places like this but unfortunately we didn't have these facilities".
"That does motivate you a bit! The numbers speak for themselves and we're going to try to bring the cup home again".
