Real Madrid – Juventus (Champions League)

The victory in Turin left the Merengues with one foot in the semi-finals, although Juventus may have a word to say this Wednesday night at the Santiago Bernabéu. Real Madrid won the first leg of these quarter finals in Italy by 3-0, and arrive here in the aftermath of a 1-1 draw in the Madrid derby. Juventus, on their turn, will be forced to score at least three goals, without conceding, in order to have a chance to stay alive in the competition.

Real Madrid arrive here motivated and are ahead in the tie after winning 3-0 in the first leg in Turin. In the team’s last match, the Merengues draw 1-1 at home against their neighbors Atletico Madrid, with the french coach having already left clear that his main goal is to revalidate the Champions League title. The Merengues have won 3 of the 4 home matches played for the Champions League, tying the remaining one, with a total of 10 goals scored and 4 conceded. Los Blancos are a very talented squad and almost seem that they were born to play in this competition, their full backs are very talented and play a very important role in the offensive process, they have a very solid midfield and forwards like Cristiano Ronaldo who is lethal inside the penalty area.

The Madrid side have a very good advantage in the tie, which forces their opponents to bet heavily in the offensive process, which may open spaces for the Merengues to do what they do better, counter-attacking. Sergio Ramos is suspended for Real Madrid due to an accumulation of bookings in the competition, while Nacho and Jesús Vallejo are also injury doubts for the home side. The rest of the team should remain the same from the side that started in the first leg.

Probable Lineup: Navas – Carvajal, Varane, Vallejo and Marcelo – Casemiro, Kroos and Modric – Isco – Benzema and Ronaldo.

champions leagueJuventus, on their turn, arrive here demoralized after seeing their dream of winning the Champions League being almost denied by, once again, Real Madrid, with their 3-0 home defeat in the first leg leaving the qualification to the next stage very, very difficult. At the weekend, Juve won at Benevento’s home 4-2, and kept a good distance at the top of the Serie A table, with 4 points above 2nd Napoli. Playing away from home for the Champions League, Juve won 2 of their 4 matches, losing 1, with a total of 5 goals scored and 5 goals conceded. This will not be an easy match for Massimiliano Allegri’s side, who need to be at their best and to adopt an offensive posture to maximize their chances of scoring goals.

Paulo Dybala was sent off in the first leg and will miss out on Wednesday as a result, while Rodrigo Bentancur is also suspended due to an accumulation of bookings in the competition. Juventus have Miralem Pjanic and Medhi Benatia available again after the duo missed the 3-0 first leg defeat through suspension and both will start here. Mario Mandzukic, Juan Cuadrado and Douglas Costa compete for two starting roles on the wing for Juventus, with Gonzalo Higuain set to lead the line once again after being rested on Saturday.

Probable Lineup: Buffon – Sciglio, Benatia, Chiellini and Sandro – Khedira, Pjanic and Matuidi – Costa, Higuaín and Mandzukic.

Real Madrid won 3 of their last 8 direct clashes against Juventus, drawing 2 and losing the remaining 3.

The Merengues are going through a fantastic moment of form this season and are capable of beating any team in Europe. Zinedine Zidane’s side haven’t lost a Champions League home match since March 2015, and this is a match where the team should continue undefeated at home, having all it takes to win once again against the Italian giants.
