    Juventus defender, Giorgio Chiellini outlined the challenge his Juve faced against Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals

    NO ALTERNATIVES

    “The match against AC Milan was important for the league, we overcame a great obstacle. The match against Real is beyond everything, the enthusiasm to play in a match like this is always so great, these are the type of games that footballers dream of playing in.

    “Revenge will not be on our minds tomorrow night, we have positive and negative memories of Cardiff along with everyone else. If you want to reach the Champions League final you have to play the big teams like Real Madrid. Apart from the match in Cardiff we also have good memories of playing Real and playing against the best teams always gives you a great incentive.”

    REAL QUALITY

    There is a lot of respect for Real Madrid, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t beat them. We respect all of our opponents and when you beat a team this good the victory feels great. Tomorrow will try to play with calmness.

    “Ronaldo will always score against everyone, Real isn’t just him, but over the years he has played amazingly well and made the difference. Thinking about stopping him is presumptuous, it will also take luck, the difference between winning and losing tomorrow with be marginal.

    "The tie will be different from Cardiff as you play two games, not one. The personnel has changed a bit here, whilst most of their squad is still the same. We have to keep calm and show our quality tomorrow night, we will have to be aware as Real are able to make you think like you are in the ascendency  but then can hurt you quickly.”
