Real Madrid to win to nil @ 19/10 with Coral

Juventus have won eight times against Real Madrid in 20 meetings, knocking them out of the Champions League twice in the 21st century, so it was understandable that they may have been a little apprehensive before facing them over two legs in the quarter finals. It was less than a year ago that Cristiano Ronaldo inspired a win against Juve by a three-goal margin in the final last season by scoring a brace in Cardiff. It was never considered that he could do that again in Turin, despite topping the Champions League goalscoring charts with 117. Juve were seen as too strong in their own back yard to succumb to another humiliation, and while they played well for long periods, once Ronaldo turned on the style they were powerless to stop him. Once again he scored twice and once again Los Blancos won by three goals.]

The return leg at the Santiago Bernabeu doesn’t have much riding on it as a result, and there can be no guarantees that Real won’t go on to win a third-straight European title and 13th in all. Crucially, Juve will be without their young star Paulo Dybala, who was sent off in the first leg, so despite the history, it is tough to see anything other than a Real win on the night and in the tie.

Form 

Juve are facing a battle for the Serie A title, which they have won every year since 2012, but a win over Benevento at the weekend kept Napoli at arm’s length.

Real have not played Atletico at the time of writing, but they are too far behind Barcelona to cause them any threat in LaLiga. The Champions League is their main focus.

Team News

Paulo Dybala misses out through suspension, while Andrea Barzagli and Federico Bernardeschi are injured. Jesus Vallejo is set to miss out for Real.
