We present to your attention the 21st meeting of Spanish and Italian football grandees in the club championship of Europe. Earlier the Samish royal club has won 10 times and eight total victories have bianconeri.
However this time, after fantastic defeat of the Turin super club in the first home match at Juventus Stadium (0:3), the return game of the teams of Zinedine Zidane and Massimiliano Allegri has gained the status of a friendly status.
After obviously weak and shy first half of the season the hosts of Estadio Santiago Bernabéu at last, have remembered that they are the leaders of modern European football and therefore it is just a shame to lose points in the national championship, in the matches against middle level teams and even underdogs of La Liga.
And gradually, after New Year's holidays the royal club has played in its usual high-speed, combinational and productive football and very quickly became one of favorites of the Champions League.
If we remember the previous European season, the Italian grandee and the constant champion of Serie A has managed to reach the final of the Champions League then this time the team of Allegri is finishing its continental saga in the quarterfinal. And you may think that this is funny, however today the weakest link of bianconeri is his well-known line of defense led by 40-year-old Gianluigi Buffon.
The second leg of two top clubs will take place in Madrid. And therefore, quite obvious, the favorite of the forthcoming quarterfinal fight according to the bookmakers is the Royal club.
But, now the score of the first match doesn't motivate at all the team of Zinedine Zidane on gaining a new victory. And at the same time residents of Turin want to finish the season on an up note...
Real Madrid – 1.57, draw – 4.10, Juventus – 5.50;
