Five talking points ahead of Juventus v Real Madrid Champions League clash

Juventus will treat Madrid match'like a final

It was the same in the previous round against Paris Saint-Germain.

Meanwhile, Real have endured a hard time in La Liga.

Leonardo Bonucci had earlier cancelled out Paulo Dybala's opener and the Rossoneri looked on track to earn a point in an away match at Juventus for the first time since 2011, before Khedira helped swing the match back in Juve's favour. "We have been doing things well for the last few months, playing better, more goals, it's a good moment and now we have to try to take advantage of it in this tie".

Asked if Madrid are now enjoying their best form of the season, Zidane agreed but insisted their league form mattered little ahead of their Champions League showdown.

Juventus' have their sights on winning the treble of Serie A, the Coppa Italia, and the Champions League and the squad will need to stay locked in and fit if they are to keep those hopes alive.


David Trezeguet's goal and an extra-time victor from Marcelo Zalayeta sealed victory for Juve, then managed by Fabio Capello, against a Real side that included David Beckham, Ronaldo and Thomas Gravesen. The white team had four victories, two losses and two draws.

The same trio are now competing for the same spot on Tuesday, with an added competitor in Vazquez. On Saturday, they claimed a comfortable 3-0 win at Las Palmas. We scored, then ground to a halt. Although the bookmakers favored the Parisians to make it through, Real Madrid put on a magnificent performance, particularly in the second leg in Paris, proving they are still capable of beating the strongest teams in the competition, so once again we'll see them in the Quarter-Finals.

"We must go there and play a great game".

Alex Sandro is set to return along with Croatian Mario Mandžukić.

For the visitors, Nacho is the only doubt.
