CAIRO – 27 May 2017: Wales’ Football Association announced Friday that UEFA's Champions League Finale will be played under a closed roof for the first time ever out of fear of any possible terrorist attack, according to Marca.
Italian champions Juventus will take on La Liga’s leaders Real Madrid in Cardiff, Wales next Saturday.
