Juventus and Real Madrid will go head to head again in the first leg of their quarter-final tie tonight.
The two teams have a similar spirit and mentality, faced each other in the Cardiff final just ten months ago. Cristiano Ronaldo is on a hot streak, just to say the least (22 goals in his last 13 games) but Juve’s defence always tough to break down.
The Bianconeri will miss the educated feet of the suspended Miralem Pjanića, but they are hardly short of weapons in a tie which the reigning champions enter as only slight favourites
