Juventus face Real Madrid at Allianz Stadium on Tuesday, April 3 in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
There were many people looking at the Knockout Rounds of the 2017-18 Champions League and wondering what Real Madrid would be able to do. After all, the Spanish giants found themselves against a vaunted PSG side. Yet, they over came and have now advanced to the quarterfinals. However, they will be tested still as they head on the road for their first leg against Juventus.
Early in this campaign, things were quite up-and-down for Real Madrid. The talent from Cristiano Ronaldo down to the youth academy was obvious. What wasn’t showing up, however, was the club performing at that level every time they touched the pitch. This was especially true in La Liga play, but they’ve been stronger in Champions League play all year, and have recently put it together more overall.
On the other hand, Juventus have been just tearing through everyone. While their race in Serie A is close at the top, that’s simply due to Napoli’s success, not their own struggles. With one of the world’s best defenses and an attack featuring Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain, this club can compete with the best, which they’ll have to if they plan to get past Real.
Details for Tuesday’s match are below:
Juventus and Real Madrid were both tested as they made their way to the quarterfinals of the Champions League. However, you could now argue that no team still remaining faces quite as difficult a test as these two clubs. As such, it’ll be interesting to see if they pull through — or rather who comes up big — on Tuesday in the first leg.
