Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane rejects suggestion that Juventus are ill-prepared


"His goal against Juventus was one of the most attractive in football history, a wonderful goal by the best player in the world".

Juventus will be without striker Paulo Dybala as they travel to Real Madrid for their Champions League quarter-final second leg tie.

Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has confirmed the signing of 17-year-old starlet Vinicius Junior.

Varane also said that Madrid defender Jesus Vallejo was ready to debut in the Champions League against Juve.

"This is an interesting player for anyone, and for English football he has shown that he's very valuable. It would be normal if they win it", Simeone said after a 1-1 draw with Real on the weekend.

Real have hit a golden patch in recent weeks, losing only one of their last 15 matches and scoring 20 goals in their last seven.

"Ronaldo is similar, as good as he is, he seems to have an ability more so than anyone in the Champions League to play another step up from his natural game". I'm only interested in tomorrow's match. "Who would have told a young Buffon that he might end his Champions League career at the Bernabeu?"

"But if you look at the club's record in the Champions League you'll see no-one has achieved what we have".

Real are looking to secure a place in the European Cup/Champions League semi-final for a record eighth consecutive season.

Except for an upset, the Galacticos will play in the semifinals of this year's championship next month.

"Our duty is to cancel out the memory of that 3-0 result, which was not an accurate reflection of the match, but must be accepted for what it was", said the Coach in his Press conference.

Bale has three goals in his last three games for Real and Calderon believes he has a future at the Bernabeu. "Our goal is to get back to the Serie A".

"I thought about giving up football because of the injuries I had".

"If there is a weakness everyone knows with Real it would be defensively".

Benzema managed only five touches during his appearance in the Bernabéu, missing one of his attempted passes and not managing a single shot either on target or off. It's hard, do you attack?

This is done and dusted, but Juventus won't want to turn up and get embarrassed.
