Cristiano Ronaldo's reigning champions bring three away goals home from Turin, and it's hard to believe even a club as storied as Juve can collect a three-goal win given the opposition and the venue of the Bernabeu.

The Bianconeri have recently grabbed the initiative in the Serie A again, putting four points between second-placed Napoli and themselves and are on track to win the title for the seventh season running.

The last two UEFA Champions League semi-finalists will be decided on Wednesday as the quarter-finals come to an end. After a 3-0 group stage defeat to Paris St Germain in September they qualified for the knockout phase behind the French champions before thrashing Besiktas in the round of 16. The former is suspended after picking up a booking in the last match, while the latter is out with a thigh injury. In his place, Jesus Navas will be the right-back for the visitors, providing a dynamic outlet on the right flank, although he'll need to be on his toes against a rejuvenated Frank Ribery. The rest of the squad will be at coach Zidane's disposal as they look to complete the job with a good performance.

Marcelo added a third for the reigning champions after Paulo Dybala was shown a second yellow card, leaving Juventus, last season's finalists, absolutely shell-shocked.

A much-changed side took to the field in Augsburg last weekend as Bayern hit back from a goal down to seal a comprehensive 4-1 win and wrap up their sixth successive Bundesliga title.

Despite Bayern Munich's 2-1 victory over Sevilla at the UEFA Champions League quarter finals first leg in Spain, Bayern German manager, Jupp Heynckes, believes that they will have a tough mission to reach the semi-finals.

Sevilla have just one win in their last six matches in all competitions, the 2-1 triumph at Old Trafford over Manchester United. It's therefore (1.80) for both teams to score in this game.

The away side have not won a game since their win in Manchester and are under pressure to perform as well.

Both teams to score is priced at 4/5 (1.80), but more appealing in backing goals at both ends and over 2.5 goals at 20/21 (1.95) - the winning selection in the first leg.

Vincenzo Montella has a number of pressing injury concerns to deal with as well ahead of their trip to Munich.

"When they lost in previous years to Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid a lot of the goals were on the counter attack. We always want to win everything but sometimes, like this year, we are not consistent", Zidane told a news conference on Tuesday ahead of the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.
