Finally, the Champions League is back in action and what a fixture to start the quarterfinals with. The 2017 winner against the runner-up will clash in Turin Tuesday night and where do you start? Juventus had some difficulties against Tottenham and barely advanced through in the tournament while Madrid eliminated PSG. The Italian side will be without both Pjanic and Benatia due to suspension and with Chiellini, Alex Sandro and Bentancur one booking away from the second leg of the fixtures. Ronaldo has finally started to score after a dry spell earlier during the season and has scored 23 goals in his last 13 appearances in all competition and additionally previously being effective against Juve with 7 goals in the last 5 games against the team.
“The Old Lady” has, on the other hand, kept 11 clean sheets in their last fixtures at Juventus Stadium but with the fact that there have been more than 2,5 goals in 20 of the last 21 Champions Leagues games for Real Madrid this won’t most likely not matter. Good possibilities for Ronaldo to score but with the second leg being the most important, the Spanish team will be hesitant to risk too much. A tie would be preferable and therefore this will be the most likely outcome.
KICK OFF: 19.45 GMT 3/4 – 18
