Juventus Seeking Revenge Against Real Madrid
This evening, the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals starts as we are about to witness the Battle of Turin where Juventus will host Real Madrid at the Allianz Stadium.
The match is a repeat of the Champions League final of 2017 and Juventus are certainly looking to take their revenge for their painful defeat in Cardiff.
Defender Giorgio Chiellini said during yesterday’s press conference that this match will not be about taking revenge, but it is natural to assume that the defeat is still fresh in their memory.
Juventus showed it is capable of beating Real Madrid both in 2013 and in 2015 and the team has sufficient experience to make it happen this time around as well.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, have won three of the last editions of the Champions League and writing anything else about their level of preparedness is superfluous.
Juventus Missing Key Players
Unfortunately for Juventus and their manager Massimiliano Allegri, two of their most important players will miss the match in Turin.
Unfortunately for Juventus and manager Massimiliano Allegri, they must miss two of the team's profiles in the first show in Turin.
These are Mehdi Benatia and Miralem Pjanic, both of whom would have been on the starting squad if they hadn’t been suspended.
With Benati's suspension, Allegri will probably start with Chiellini and Barzagli in the middle, but rumors are spreading that he will choose Barzagli or Daniele Rugani.
Pjanic has been an important part of the team and will be replaced by Bentancur or Marchisio. Allegri has always been able to surprise the opponents and you can never know for sure what line-up he will choose for this Champions League match.
Real Madrid Has Exhibited Composure
Real Madrid has certainly not had a good season, and of course, there have been a lot of rumors about Zinedine Zidane's future in the club.
However, they won convincingly against Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16 stage. At the same time, they has shown composure in their recent matches and they will enter the Juventus match with confidence
They have won the last five matches in a row, and of course they have Cristiano Ronaldo on the team who is always dangerous in Champions League matches.
While Juventus will miss some of their key players, Zidane has the entire team at his disposal. Real will miss Nacho, who is only a back-up player, and many people are saying that he must choose between Isco and Gareth Bale in his starting lineup.
