      Juve will play at least seven matches in April as the season reaches a crescendo

      Throughout the season, Massimiliano Allegri has said that he wants to have his team firing on all cylinders come March and April...it's easy to see why. As the calendar turns to the penultimate month of the campaign, Juve faces at least seven matches, all with huge importance. 

      3 APRIL | UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE | VS REAL MADRID

      A match that needs no introduction, Juventus and Real Madrid will play each other for the fourth UEFA Champions League campaign out of the last six with a blockbuster quarter-final matchup set. 

      Since 2000, Juve is 4-1-0 in Turin against Los Merengues and they'll be looking to start the two-legged tie off strong at Allianz Stadium. 

      7 APRIL | SERIE A | AT BENEVENTO

      For the first time in Serie A history, the Old Lady will travel to Benevento to face the club which is in the Italian top flight for the first time in their history this season. 

      It's been a tough go in the league for the league debutants with relegation a near-certainty, but they'll certainly be up for what is first-ever visit of Juventus to the Stadio Ciro Vigorito

      11 APRIL | UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE | AT REAL MADRID

      The return leg vs Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu will be one to remember for the Bianconeri in what will be another high-octane matchup.

      Juve will certainly hope to take an advantage to Madrid, though the Bianconeri have shown they can do it on the road whatever the circumstances as we saw at Wembley in the last round vs Tottenham.

      15 APRIL | SERIE A | VS SAMPDORIA

      The Bianconeri will have a chance to avenge one of their two losses in Serie A this season as Sampdoria visits Allianz Stadium for the only time this season. La Samp scored a 3-2 win over Juventus at the Luigi Ferraris in November, a loss that spurred Massimiliano Allegri's side on to a 25-match unbeaten streak that they still currently hold. 

      After a very strong start to the season, Samp have cooled off a bit entering the final stages, but still have an outside shot of European qualification, so there will be plenty on the line for both sides. 

      18 APRIL | SERIE A | AT CROTONE

      Having narrowly escaped the drop last season in their first-ever Serie A campaign, Crotone find themselves in a similarly precarious position this season locked in a tight battle with a few clubs at the bottom of the table.

      Last season, in their first trip to the Ezio Scida, the Bianconeri ran out 2-0 winners with goals from Mario Mandzukic and Gonzalo Higuain.

      22 APRIL | SERIE A | VS NAPOLI

      *NOTE: Kick-off time and date will not be confirmed until UCL quarter-final results are known. 

      A match that has been circled on the calendar ever since Juventus came away from the San Paoli with all three points in December, the Bianconeri and Napoli face off with everything to play for at the Allianz Stadium.

      Should Juve and Napoli hold form through the early parts of April, this one will go a long way to deciding the title race in what will be one of the biggest Serie A matches of the season. 

      29 APRIL | SERIE A | AT INTER

      *NOTE: Kick-off time and date will not be confirmed until UCL quarter-final results are known.  

      A final trip to the San Siro this season awaits the Bianconeri as they'll play the second Derby d'Italia of the season against Inter in another all-important Serie A match. 

      Juve and Inter played to a 0-0 draw in December and the Bianconeri will be looking to better that result with just four Serie A matches remaining in the season. 

      *If Juventus advances to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, the first leg will be played between the Napoli and Inter matches.
