Following what was a good but somewhat unconvincing 3-1 win over AC Milan in their last outing, Juventus turn their attention to the Tuesday-evening Champions League quarter-final meeting with Spanish giants Real Madrid. The ‘Old Lady’ of Italian football have been turning-in some impressive performances in front of their home fans and will certainly need to be at their very best in this first-leg clash with the bookmakers giving away some great free bets on Juventus v Real Madrid.
Juventus didn’t really outclass Milan at the weekend and the scoreline was no real reflection on the match, however it nevertheless extended Juve’s unbeaten home run to some sixteen games (with thirteen wins during that time) and we expect an exciting and end-to-end affair when Real Madrid make the trip to Turin for this European affair.
The Spanish giants are lagging far behind arch-rivals Barcelona in the Spanish top-flight with some thirteen points separating the teams, however Real have connected a five-game winning run since early March with wins over Getafe, PSG, Eibar, Girona and Las Palmas, therefore we envisage them giving a good account of themselves when they head to Italy on Tuesday evening.
That said, Zinedine Zidane’s men have struggled somewhat on their travels this season and the Real boss has been having a few problems finding a cure for his side’s defensive frailties, Los Blancos leaking thirteen goals in their last fifteen competitive outings. This is certain to be of concern ahead of what will certainly be a tough assignment and while we envisage the visitors adding to the scoreline on Tuesday evening, we’ll be siding with the hosts in this first leg with Bet365 Bookies going 11/2 on Juventus to win and both teams to score.
