When this draw was made Juventus would have been delighted that they were given an early chance to avenge their loss in last season’s final and continue their quest to finally win a Champions League crown.

However, they were outclassed in the first leg 0-3 by Los Merenges and they now face an almost impossible task to turn it around in Madrid.

Real Madrid drew their very next game 1-1 to Atletico Madrid to leave themselves 15 points adrift of league leaders, Barcelona in the La Liga, but their form in the Champions League could see them defend the cup yet again.

They have 11 wins from their last 13 games in all competitions, losing just once.

Juventus may face an impossible task here, but they are en evidently talented side.

They lead the Serie A by 4 points and defeated Benevento 4-2 in their last game.

On the whole, they have tasted victory 17 times out of their last 22 games.

They have not had the best of campaigns in the Champions League this season as they have won just 4 times in their 10 matches so far and lost 3-0 at Barcelona earlier in the season.

Real Madrid have three wins, two draws and two losses from their last seven games against the Old Ladies, while Juve have won only once on their last 5 visits to the Bernabeu.
