Real Madrid v Juventus — Big Match Focus

Real Madrid v Juventus — Big Match Focus

We don't know what'll happen during the match, but who expected us to lose 3-0 in the first leg? Asked if Serie A was weaker than La Liga, Zidane - who played for Juve from 1996 until 2001's move to Madrid - replied: "I don't think it is weak".

"Jesus is a good player", Varane said.

Meanwhile, Paulo Dybala must watch from the sidelines after being sent off in the first leg and the striker is joined by Bentancur, who picked up his second caution in the knockout stages last time out.

For neutrals to indulge in what probably amounts to fantasy, though, there are at least some realistic ways it could get close; if Juventus got an early goal, if Real's defence suddenly looks a bit suspect without the absent Sergio Ramos.

Real Madrid is not only the richest club in the world but also the most popular and successful club of all time.

Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegrii: "Our duty is to cancel the 3-0 result of the first game".

Meanwhile, Perez labelled Ronaldo as the "great heir" to the late Di Stefano, who achieved iconic status with the Spanish side thanks to his exploits in the 1950s and 60s, during which he won five European Cups and scored 308 goals in 396 appearances, and has always been considered one of the all-time greats of the game. They are also the top away scorers along with Lazio, having scored 37 goals - giving them a 2.4 goals per game ratio. Bale has three goals in his last three games for Real and Calderon believes he has a future at the Bernabeu.

When asked if this might be his last champions league game, Buffon answered briskly: "If I had to sign for Juventus knowing that I would finish up in such a scenario I would do it all again". He was a regular in the starting lineup in his first four years and played a key role in helping Real to their tenth Champions League title in 2014.

Across six seasons for Spurs in English football's top-flight he featured in 146 matches, registering 43 goals and creating a further 31 for his teammates. "We are playing for our season in this competition". Their season was geared to winning the Champions League and they'll want to salvage some pride.

"Cristiano is Di Stefano's great heir and in him the values of Real Madrid are reflected".

I see it being an open game and perhaps a few of the supporting acts getting on the scoresheet.
