SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: JUVENTUS - REAL MADRID | POSSIBLE STARTING 11 TEAM LINE-UPS

JUVENTUS - REAL MADRID | POSSIBLE STARTING 11 TEAM LINE-UPS

First of the two UEFA Champions League 1º leg semi-final clashes tonight between Italian Club Juventus & Real Madrid. In my opinion & dangerous game for Real Madrid as the Italians have just proclaimed themselves "Serie A" Champions & come into the late part of the season in great form.

Real Madrid on the other hand have Modric & Benzema out with injury, Cristiano Ronaldo with some apparent back pains & their Football has not been as sharp as in the past. It is obvious that its a home & away two game semi final affair & perhaps the Spaniards will be more "cautious" tonight looking for an away goal to wrap things up back in Madrid.

As usual this morning Sports media has been debating the possible starting 11 line-ups for both Real Madrid & Juventus taking all factors into consideration. Everything points that Real Madrid will again go with the "Sergio Ramos midfielder Experiment" while Juventus is undecided if they will play with 2 or 3 central defenders. Either way both them are showing each other the maximum respect & know beforehand that a slip with be costly. 

Spanish Sports paper "Mundo Deportivo" have published an infograph with their speculated starting 11 line-ups for Juventus & Real Madrid:

JUVENTUS: Buffon, Lichsteiner, Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini, Evra, Vidal, Marchisio, Pirlo, Tevez & Morata.

REAL MADRID: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Varane, Marcelo (Coentrao), Ramos, Kroos, Isco, James, Bale & Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juventus has a powerful & hard working midfield that Real Madrid will want to neutralise, while the Italians are weary of the offensive power of the Spanish Team.  Vertical attacking by Madrid vs a the counter-attacking Juve. Great match assured!

May the better team win tonight!
