Juventus vs Real Madrid Match Preview

This tuesdays Champions League tie against Real Madrid is really an important one in terms of progressing in the competition or not. Juve go into the game on a high after three straight wins in the league without conceding a goal however the Bianconeri are yet to win a game in this years Champions League where we sit third in the group table with 2 points. Meanwhile Real Madrid's Champions League campaign has been excellent. They sit top of the group table after winning all three game scoring 12 and conceding just 2, despite this their recent game against Rayo Vallecano was anything but promising win a narrow 3-2 win.

Antonio Conte believes we deserve to go through however feels we need to win this game if we have any chance, "We've got to show on the field, as we did in Madrid, that we deserve to go through, otherwise we will be the first to kneel down and applaud those who make it through instead of us." Meanwhile Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric believes that the game will be anything but easy and a win is not guaranteed as he said "They are a great side and we respect them, they have good quality players and we expect a difficult game in Turin."

Team News

Juve will have no Giorgio Chiellini who has a one match ban and Real Madrid won't have Fabio Coentrao who has a sprained ankle.


Juve will go into this game high in confidence with three straight wins and three straight clean sheets while Real Madrid have not been at the top of their game. Despite this the pressure on the Juventini to win the game may be to high and could see them crumble under the pressure. 

I believe that this will be a great game and a tight game like the first time we met Real Madrid a couple of weeks ago however I feel this time Juve will come out on top. With the team being high in confidence and the fans behind them I predict a 2-1 win to Juventus ! FORZA JUVE !!!
