Juventus v Real Madrid – KO: 19:45 BST
The first of two Champions League semi-finals takes place at Juventus Stadium on Tuesday as the Serie A giants take-on the holders in a bid to reach their first final since 2003, and you can get your best Juventus v Real Madrid odds, here.
The hosts have overcome Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal’s conquerors Monaco to reach this stage, but face their toughest test yet against the Spanish giants. Max Allegri can study the game tapes of last season where Juventus and Real Madrid were drawn in Group B together, drawing 2-2 at home against the eventual champions.
However, Allegri will once again be without talisman Paul Pogba who is still struggling with the hamstring injury he picked up against Dortmund in the last-16 tie of the competition.
For Real Madrid, their goal to become the first side to successfully defend this trophy since its inception in 1992 goes on and Carlo Ancelotti has a selection dilemma. Luka Modric’s injury means Sergio Ramos is likely to deputise in midfield, but with the danger posed by Carlos Tevez, is the vice-captain required in defence?
Asier Illarramendi and Lucas Silva remain options in central midfield to partner Toni Kroos, but the three-time Champions League winning manager is likely to favour experience on this occasion. Check out the Champions League semi final odds, below.
Real Madrid: 19/10
