DANIEL AYALA VS CAMERON JEROME
When Daniel Ayala plays, Middlesbrough are a different proposition. He is a Premier League quality centre back who is very strong in the air and comfortable with the ball at his feet.

Jerome meanwhile, who joined Norwich in August from Stoke, has top-flight pedigree and has been key to the Canaries promotion push with 19 league goals - including one last week in the semi-final against Ipswich. Strong, good in the air and a

Juventus host Napoli in Serie A on Saturday, with the pre-match chat focusing on one man: visiting manager Rafa Benitez.
Multiple sources across the continent suggest the 55-year-old is being lined up to replace Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid next season.
The Spanish tactician would be a free agent, as his contract with Napoli is due to expire next month and he does not appear intent on a renewal.
