Real Madrid vs Juventus Prediction & Betting tips
For Juventus after this catastrophic first leg result of 0: 3 there is still something for the Italians? It is hard to imagine that Real Madrid will take this advantage, too strong is above all the offensive around superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. But how will Real Madrid cope with the loss of the defensive boss and captain Sergio Ramos? Juventus need at least three goals and the quality of the Turin squad is definitely there. Also Juventus must with Paulo Dybala on a key player who flew with a yellow-red card in the first leg of the place. The direction for Juventus before the game is clear: Attack from the first minute.
The Royal is the name of the game this season, as the premier class is running smoothly, while Real Madrid is only fourth in the league. In the Champions League Real Madrid finished second in a group with Tottenham Hotspur, Borussia Dortmund and Apoel Nicosia. In the second round cleared the Blancos the highly traded Frenchmen of Paris Saint-Germain out of the way and won both games. Especially Cristiano Ronaldo seems to love the Champions League like no other. In the first leg of the quarter-final against Juventus he set with ten European games in a row with at least one goal to set a new record, outperforming his former teammate at Manchester United Ruud van Nistelrooy. Especially the fall-back goal for the 2: 0 will stay in the memory of many fans for a long time.
In the league, however, it is less optimal for Real Madrid. With 64 points after 31 matchdays, the Blancos occupy only fourth place. This would be the worst placement in 14 years, should the club no longer improve. With defending the title in La Liga, there will hardly be anything left as FC Barcelona are already 15 points clear. Second-placed Atlético Madrid is still within reach with four points. After the draw at the weekend in Derbi Madrileno also Valencia CF passed the Royal in the table. Once again Cristiano Ronaldo was successful and brought his team into the lead in the 53rd minute. Only four minutes later, however, the superstar of the opponent, Antoine Griezmann, equalized immediately after the 1-1 final score. For the return leg against Juventus Torin defender and captain Sergio Ramos is known to be missing. In addition to the injured Nacho Fernandez is behind the use of the fourth central defender in the squad, Jesus Vallejo, a question mark. Zinedine Zidane commented: “Vallejo suffered a setback yesterday after training and we did not want to risk anything. I hope it is not serious and he will be with us on Wednesday. If it is not operational, we must first look how we set up. ”
The outsider role is known to the old lady only in the Champions League. In the Italian Serie A, Juventus dominates at will and is about to get the Scudetto for the seventh time. After the 1: 4 final defeat last season, Juventus wanted revenge for the bankruptcy, but after the first leg, it looks like a repeat of the events. In a group with FC Barcelona, Sporting Lisbon and Olympiakos Piraeus Juve came second and met in the second round on the Tottenham Hotspurs. After a 2-2 in Turin, Juventus could decide the return leg in London with 2: 1 for themselves. The game in the quarter-final first leg against Real Madrid was extremely unhappy. With the first real chance Cristiano Ronaldo put after three minutes on 1: 0 for the Spaniards. After a few missed chances, especially by Juve, Ronaldo increased with the splendid backp to 2: 0. Striker star Paulo Dybala saw the yellow card shortly thereafter and further worsened his team’s chances. Marcelo finished with the 3: 0 in the 72nd minute the final point. This meant for Juventus the first defeat after 25 competitive games in a row without defeat.
In the league, the old lady could shoot at Benevento Calcio for the hoped-for catching up in Madrid warm. Here, coach Massimiliano Allegri his team through properly and sent with Dybala and Alex Sandro only two players on the field, which raced in the Champions League from the start. This complete relegation is a clear sign that Allegri has not lost hope for the second leg. The suspended Paulo Dybala scored three goals in a 4-2 victory in Benevento, two of them by penalty. Douglas Costa was able to fix the final score in the 82nd minute. For the suspended Argentine Mario Mandzukic will probably move up in the starting eleven and storm alongside Gonzalo Higuain. After the suspension in the first leg Mehdi Benatia and Miralem Pjanic are also in the match. Especially the latter is an extremely important part of the Juventus offensive. With 12 assists, the Bosnian is the top template of his team.
