Juventus have given themselves a big chance of making the Champions League final, with a 2-1 win at the Juventus Stadium meaning that the Italian champions simply need a draw or better to go through.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side landed a goalless draw in Monaco after previously winning the first leg 1-0 in the quarter finals, with the Old Lady of Turin likely to be defensively robust for this encounter.

Real Madrid know that a 1-0 victory will send them through to a likely El Clasico final thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s away goal, although Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Valencia will give Juve plenty of encouragement that their opponents can be thwarted.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team had to scramble back from two goals down to land a point against Los Che, although a four-point gap behind Barcelona is too much of an ask, with this competition now becoming even more important.

We reckon that this match could yield either one or no goals. Juventus need a goalless draw to go through and have the defensive tools to thwart the likes of Ronaldo and an off-colour Gareth Bale. However, Real scoring one goal would see them attempt to shut up shop instead.
