Real Madrid VS Juventus

Preview
This Wednesday, Real Madrid and Juventus match up at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, in Madrid, in a match for the second leg of the Champions League semi-final. This is a match between two teams that have had great seasons so far. Real Madrid is doing well in the European competition, despite having been eliminated from the Copa del Rey. They are also very much alive in their struggle against Barcelona for the national title and have been playing well after a disappointing start of the season. Juventus, on their hand, have already guaranteed their fourth consecutive Italian title and are also doing well on the European competition. Moreover, they are to play the Italian Cup final soon. In the first leg match, in Italy, Juventus won 2-1.

Analysis of Real Madrid

Before losing in Italy, Real Madrid had a winning record of nine games with no defeats and 5 consecutive wins. Despite having played well and created many goal opportunities, the Spanish have not been able to avoid losing. But the away goal can be important for this 2nd leg match. Real Madrid have scored in all home matches this season, and the last time they didn’t was over a year and a half ago. Therefore, access to the final will depend mostly on the team’s defence performance.
 
In case they eliminate Juventus, Real has a chance to be the first team to win the Champions League in two consecutive seasons in the last 15 years. After eliminating Schalke in the first knockout round, they overcame an important test after eliminating their rival Athletic Madrid. They now need to repeat their good exhibition to reach yet another final.

Confirmed Lineup: Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Daniel Carvajal, R. Varane, Marcelo, J. Rodríguez, T. Kroos, Isco, K. Benzema, G. Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Coach: Rafael Benítez.

Analysis of Juventus

Unlike their opponent in this match, Juventus has already guaranteed the national title four rounds ahead of time and can now focus entirely on the remaining competitions. This was probably an important factor on the first leg match, since they have been able to endure Real Madrid’s pressure and have seized the few goal opportunities they have had to score two goals. Even without their most influential midfield player, Pogba, they have played well. On this 2nd leg match he is likely to play, since he has recovered from his injury and is now practicing with the rest of the team.

On the other knockout matches, Juve has maintained defensive solidity and ended their away matches without conceding many goals. First, they faced Borussia Dortmund, in Germany, with a 2-1 advantage, and won the away game 1-3. Afterwards, they tied 0-0 in France against Monaco, after a 1-0 home win. They now look forward to maintaining this rhythm to reach the UCL final.

Confirmed Lineup: G. Buffon, L. Bonucci, S. Lichtsteiner, G. Chiellini, P. Evra, A. Vidal, P. Pogba, A. Pirlo, C. Marchisio, C. Tevez, Álvaro Morata.
Coach: M. Allegri.

Betting suggestion:

This is a totally different match from the previous knockout games for Juventus. Real Madrid is known for its high technical quality. Moreover, they play in their stadium and need to recover from a negative result. Therefore, we believe that the most likely scenario for this match is that Real Madrid will win the match.
