Five talking points ahead of Juventus-Real Madrid clash

Five talking points ahead of Juventus-Real Madrid clash

- Real Madrid has won nine of its 19 meetings with Juventus, which has won eight and two matches have ended in draws.

The two teams last met in the 2016/17 season final where Real Madrid emerged 4-1 victors on the night.

"Juventus have to play as we know we can", Buffon told UEFA's official website.

Not much separated the two sides at the break as it finished 1-1 but Madrid's class shone through in the second-half.

"People forget these things".

"I have endless admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo", the goalkeeper said.

Isco scored a hat-trick for Spain against Argentina a week ago and then sent a barbed message to the Real Madrid coach in his post-game interview, implying he would like to start more big games. Real Madrid has suffered a disappointing domestic season where they stand on the third spot whereas Juventus were nearly knocked out by the Premier league heavyweights Tottenham in the pre-quarter-final.

Both sides have always had some of the top players in the world which has always made this fixture a treat for the spectators and tomorrow will be no different.

Real Madrid denied the Italian champions their first Champions League trophy since 1996.

The Illinois Department of Health says a number disturbing cases have cropped up recently where users suffered "severe bleeding". IDPH continues to investigate to try to identify any common products and determine where they were obtained.

"It's presumptuous to think that you can mark him out of a game".

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane dismissed any talk of comparisons with last year's final.

THE match kicks off at the Juventus Stadium at 7:45pm on Tuesday April 3. That was certainly an occasion when we began as serious underdogs.

"I don't ever send my players out to make calculations", he said. However, it was us who accomplished the impressive feat.

"We win the matches which last 180 minutes but lose those that last 90".

"On nights like that you need to be lucky".

"It's true, we are similar", he said.

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. I'm not just saying that, it's what history says, based on accolades and statistics. "And there is still time for that".

"So, when there is the opportunity, the chance and the hope of getting going in a competition, my aim is to win".
