The best game of the Tuesday Champions League lineup features Real Madrid visiting Juventus at 2:45 PM ET at Juventus Stadium in Turin, Italy.

These two teams met two weeks ago with a Madrid 2-1 victory, but the reality of the game saw the Italians played a better match; they just couldn’t find the net.

“It’s a waste of time trying to hide. This will be a fundamental and beautiful game. It will be crucial if we want to continue in the Champions League and we have to do something on the pitch to deserve to continue in the competition. [Carlo] Ancelotti can count on an extraordinary and devastating offensive department. Especially if you leave them space in which to counter-attack. Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema, Di Maria and the rest are fantastic when they have space to attack. We have to tactically repeat what we did in Madrid”, Juventus coach Antonio Conte said.

Keep in mind none of the 15 previous European competition meetings between these two squads have ended as a draw.

Juventus have won only four of their last 11 Champions League home games; they will face a Real Madrid that has enough speed to counterattack.

“It will be an interesting match. It’s a chance for us to secure the qualification to the next round. I’m not happy with our defense, but we have scored 42 goals in 15 games. Balance in football means defending and attacking well. The faster we qualify, the better for us,” Madrid’s Coach Ancelotti said.

Juventus is listed +145 in the moneyline; meanwhile Real Madrid is +185; the draw pays +225.
