Real Madrid vs Juventus: Champions League preview

Real Madrid host Juventus at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

Zinedine Zidane’s side head into the game with a healthy first-leg advantage. Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo (2) and Marcelo handed Los Blancos a 3-0 win in Turin, as Juve finished the match with 10 men.

Juventus maintained their advantage at the summit of Serie A with a 4-2 away win at Benevento on Saturday. Paulo Dybala, who will not be involved on Wednesday, scored a hat-trick, with two of his goals coming form the penalty spot. Douglas Costa scored Juve’s fourth.

Last Tuesday’s defeat was Juve’s first in all competitions in 26 matches. Juventus have won 12 and drawn one of their last 13 away matches, keeping 10 clean sheets on the road in that period.

Real Madrid’s run of six consecutive wins came to an end on Sunday after their 1-1 draw at home to Atletico in the Madrid derby. Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring before Antoine Griezmann equalised for the visitors just minutes later.

Ronaldo has scored 14 goals in this season’s competition – six more than any other player.

Real Madrid team news vs Juventus

Sergio Ramos serves a one-match suspension after his accumulation of yellow cards in the tournament.

With Jesus Vallejo and Nacho Fernandez also sidelined, 19-year-old Achraf Hakimi may be forced to slot in alongside Varane. The Moroccan international is mainly a right-back but can play in the middle of defence.

Mateo Kovacic, who came on as a late substitute in the first leg, is a booking away from a ban.

Juventus team news vs Real Madrid

As if attempting to overcoming the first leg deficit wasn’t difficult enough, Juventus will have to do so without their best player.

Paulo Dybala will serve a one match suspension after his sending off in the second half of the first leg.

Midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur will also serve a suspension after a totting up of yellow cards.

There is some positive news, however. Miralem Pjanic and Medhi Benatia are available again after missing the game in Turin through suspension.

Massimiliano Allegri will be hoping to have Andrea Barzagli available. The defender is a minor doubt due to an abdominal injury.

Federico Bernardeschi is back in training following a knee injury.

The match is likely to be Gianluigi Buffon’s last ever match in European competition.
