real madrid vs juventus champion league quater finals 2018 highlights ,After defeating PSG nearly a month ago and advancing to the quarter-final, Real Madrid will face for the first time against Juventus since defeating them in last year’s Champions League Final in Cardiff. This time, they meet in the quarter-final where the 1st leg takes place at Juventus Stadium in Turin.

Real have won their last 3 matches in La Liga, all since eliminating PSG, and have been in much better form as of late considering how questionable they’ve been all season. They currently sit third in the league table. Juventus are first in Serie A and haven’t lost a match since November. They advanced to the quarter-final after defeating Tottenham at Wembley Ronaldo was rested for Real Madrid’s latest La Liga clash, with Los Blancos running out comfortable 3-0 winners over Las Palmas.Gareth Bale was on target twice while Karim Benzema also found the back of the net as Ronaldo was given a much-needed rest ahead of the Champions League quarter-finals.

However, the Portuguese superstar is set for a return to action this week with Zinedine Zidane having an almost full-strength squad to select from.   After breaking down at the weekend, the defender will be in the party that travels to Turin for the first leg of the quarter-final on Tuesday Nacho Fernandez has been named in Real Madrid’s squad to face Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday, allaying injury fears after he left the pitch in tears on Saturday.

The centre-back hurt his right ankle following a seemingly innocuous challenge with Las Palmas defender Alejandro Galvez in the 3-0 win in the Canary Islands.

Nacho was withdrawn for Achraf Hakimi just before the half-hour mark, visibly worried about the extent of the problem as he was seen crying

Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon admitted that his team were overconfident that day and believes they have a better chance of an upset over two legs.

Can you explain why over two legs Juventus seem capable of defeating Real Madrid, but why they can’t do so in finals?”There is no explanation, but I’d like to start winning the finals. The same thing has happened to us against Barcelona. We can win a clash of 180 minutes, but lose over 90. We will have to start playing 180 minutes in the finals. It’s hard to find an explanation, but it shows that we do know how to play at this level. It’s clear that teams don’t play the same when a match is 90 minutes long and not 180 minutes.”Have you replayed what happened in the final in your mind a lot?”Of course, although it will never change. The strongest team on the pitch that day won. What we need to do now is to set out our quality and our way of playing in order to make it even.”What happened in the Cardiff final for it to end with such a large scoreline?”The best team won, but we weren’t that bad to be beaten so heavily. There are moments in these matches when luck smiles on you and on that day it did not help us.”Do you know exactly what you have to do to defeat Real Madrid? “We have to set out on the pitch our best qualities, which is what our coach will do.”When you

However, with Madrid able to focus on the competition after a disappointing defence of their Spanish crown has left them 13 points behind leaders Barcelona, the two-time defending champions start as favourites.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane believes Tuesday night’s Champions League quarterfinal clash with Juventus will be “totally different” to the last time these two sides met, in the final in Cardiff last year.

Real came out on top of that game with a convincing 4-1 win to lift their 12th European Cup/Champions League title, but Zidane says that game will not bear any influence on events at the Allianz Stadium in Turin.

“It’s going to be a totally different game because these teams are different and are not anything like the ones in Cardiff,” Zidane said at a news conference. “It went well for us there, but games never repeat themselves.

“Our season’s not been as good as we thought it would be since then. Our aim is to play a good game because we know we can do and we’re ready for it, but what happens will not have anything to do with what happened in Cardiff.”

One difference is that this time the winner will be determined over at least 180 minutes, but Zidane says he will not set his team up to get a result in the first leg which might help them back in Madrid, but rather to win both games.

“I don’t ever send my players out to make calculations,” he said. “I don’t look at statistics much and I don’t look at wins and losses from the past. This is a new game and we need to prepare well for it.”

Zidane also admitted that Real and Juve — for whom he also played — have many similarities, which makes this game so evenly poised.

“It’s true, we are similar,” he said. “I’ve been part of Juve and Real as a player and now as a coach and the DNA is the same: both sides want to fight and win always. I’ve learned this playing for both these clubs

Real Madrid squad to against Juventus:

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Luca.

Defenders: Carvajal, Vallejo, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Theo and Achraf.

Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Llorente, Asensio, Isco, Kovacic and Ceballos.

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Mayoral

Juventus

Buffon; De Sciglio, Barzagli, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Matuidi, Marchisio; Dybala, Cuadrado, Higuain

Max Allegri himself could go with several different options in his starting lineup. He has Mandzukic, Douglas Costa, Lichtsteiner, and Marchisio at his disposal to use as needed. Their biggest break is having Chiellini back when he questionable to even play just a few weeks ago.

Prediction
2-1 Real Madrid-Juventus

Juventus are known for their strong defense, so it shouldn’t be expected that this will be a high-scoring match. Real being in peak form should be helpful in securing a win on the road. It may prove to be better to start on the road first if Real are able to get a win in Turin.

Best case scenario of course is a win, but it wouldn’t be terrible if Real went back to the Santiago Bernabeu for the 2nd leg tied. Juventus are a strong team when they are on form and are amongst the best teams defensively. I would say Real’s lineup is better on paper, especially when you see how well they’ve played in the Champions League and against PSG. And, of course, having Ronaldo for this competition is always a factor in favor of Real.

This should be an entertaining one, with hopefully a similar result to the final last year when it’s all said and done.
