Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has warned Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain not to let their friendship lull him into a false sense of security for next month's Champions League final, and insisted "sparks are going to fly" in Cardiff.

Ramos and Higuain were team-mates at the Bernabeu for six seasons, during which time they helped Real win three LaLiga titles, but they will be on opposing sides at the Millennium Stadium and the Spain international has assured no quarter will be given.

The tough-tackling centre-back said: "He's a great friend but I'm not going to gift him anything on the pitch. Not only do they have Alves, they also have Pipa (Higuain), (Mario) Mandzukic, (Giorgio) Chiellini....sparks are going to fly."
