Allegri: Juve learnt from defeat to Real

Allegri: Juve learnt from defeat to Real

"You will find out on Tuesday", said a cagey Zidane when asked if Gareth Bale's two-goal display against Las Palmas would make him more hard to drop in Turin."It's important for us to go into the game off the back of a victory, but this is a different game and we will have to be at our best". He's often so important in big games, and scored a stunning bicycle kick against Real in the final previous year.

"Maybe with the national team Isco is different because he has eight matches with them [in a season], whereas here there are 60", he said. But we're facing the best.

Paulo Dybala is stronger mentally than before and is ready to shine against Real Madrid in the Champions League, according to Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri.

"I think we need to congratulate Ronaldo because for a player to be 30 or 31 and change his playing style completely is something extraordinary".

Bonucci's departure at the end of last season meant the break-up of the formidable "BBC" defence, which also featured Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli.

Allegri meanwhile, is preparing his side for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie against Real Madrid, a repeat of last year's final when they lost 4-1 to the La Liga giants.

Benatia is suspended for today's match alongside midfielder Miralem Pjanic but Allegri has shown himself to have an uncanny knack of switching formations.

"I learned so much in those five years", he said.

ZINEDINE ZIDANE probably didn't get the welcome he was expecting on his first return to Juventus as manager.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon celebrates his team's victory over English side Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League last-16 second leg at London recently.

He begun his AC Milan career by lifting the Rossoneri to the Scudetto in 2011, their first league title in seven years, and winning 91 of his 178 matches in charge over four seasons, per Transfermarkt.

They will, however, be without defender Nacho Fernandez after the club confirmed he would be out of action for around a month after suffering a thigh injury during their 3-0 win over Las Palmas on Saturday.
