Zinedine Zidane’s men will be looking to continue their domination on the Old Lady when they clash in the Spanish capital

Real Madrid play host to Juventus for the second leg quarter-final of the Uefa Champions League on Wednesday night.

Los Blancos are one foot in the semi-final after cruising to a comfortable 3-0 victory in the first leg at the Allianz Stadium. Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace, including his stunning overhead kick and Marcelo’s strike was enough to break the hearts of the Turin faithful.

Though they will be missing the services of their captain Sergio Ramos due to suspension, they are still favourites at the price of (1.65) to come out on top with Bet365 and are (1.006) to ease into the semi-final stage.

A share of spoils at the end of 90 minutes of action is available at the price of (4.33) with the same betting firm.

Juventus have now suffered back to back defeats in the hands of Real and will be aiming to halt the winless run against their Spanish rivals.

However, they have an uphill task of overturning the huge first-leg deficit especially as they will be without the suspended Paulo Dybala and also Rodrigo Bentancur.

Despite beating Benevento 4-2 in Saturday’s Serie A encounter, they have been tagged as underdogs for this tie at the odds of (5.25).

Given that Zidane’s side only needed to avoid defeat to make it to the next stage of the competition, hence, punters can back them at (1.18) for a double chance.

Real Madrid have registered 15 goals in their last five outings, averaging three goals per game. As a result of that, the price of (1.53) for three or more goals to surface here looks good value.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in his last ten Champions League game and will be hoping to continue the trend at (1.57) with Bet365.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
