thumbnail Hello,

Our man at the Bernabeu tonight Phil Kitromilides is backing Carlo Ancelotti's men to win, but believes the Bianconeri are capable of scoring against los Blancos

The most glamorous tie in this round of Champions League matches sees the Old Lady of Italian football visit the Santiago Bernabeu.

Juventus' capitulation at the weekend in throwing away a two-goal lead at Fiorentina was in stark contrast to Real Madrid's dominant performance over Malaga and the Blancos are clear favourites with BetVictor for a win at 8/13 (1.62). Juve, meanwhile, are offered at 21/4 (6.25), with the draw available at 31/10 (4.10).

Madrid are of course an imposing prospect at home, and are unbeaten in Europe at the Bernabeu for two and a half years, during which time the biggest teams in Europe have failed to overcome them.

This is a game that Carlo Ancelotti's men should win and if they replicate the intensity of their weekend performance they will pick up the three points, yet the attacking threat of Juve should not be underestimated.

Nine goals netted in three games, means they come to the Spanish capital in decent scoring form at least and Real Madrid have a habit of conceding goals at home.

Both teams to score is too short at 8/13 (1.62) but both teams to score and Real Madrid to win looks highly appealing at 19/10 (2.90).

Domestically, this bet regularly pays out, proving to be the correct selection in 10 of Madrid's last 12 home league games and has another great chance of doing so against Juve.
