Juventus vs Real Madrid Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first leg of the semi finals in the UEFA Champions League, Juventus host Real Madrid in Turin.
Juventus play amazing this season. They have already win the title in Serie A, but they have a chance to win another two trophies this season: Champions League and Coppa Italia. Juve is the only team without defeat in Serie A this season – they conceded only 9 goals in 17 matches this season. In the 1/8 finals against Dortmund they conceded only one goal, while in the quarter finals against Monaco they saved their net. Their coach Massimiliano Allegri said for the UEFA.com : “It’s a semi-final, they are champions of Europe so compared with us they could have a slightly better chance; but it’s not a semi-final where you can say we’ve got nothing to lose – we can lose the chance of being in the final.”
Real Madrid won this competition last season and they want to become the first team who win the UEFA Champions League two times in a row. The visitors are in the great form with eight wins in the last nine matches in all competitions (8-1-0) and without any doubt they are favorite to qualify in the final. In the quarter finals Real was better side and beat Atletico Madrid in the replay of the last season final in this competition. Their coach Carlo Ancelotti is optimistic and he believe that they can reach another final.

Juventus vs Real Madrid Betting Tip and Predictions
Real Madrid is the favorite to reach the second consecutive final in the UEFA Champions League, but I can’t underestimate home side, who play very tough and know how to play on result. I expect very tough game and low number of goals.
