Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. Live coverage of the match will be available on ITV 1.

Overview

Juventus come into this fixture after winning the Scudetto following their 1-0 victory over Sampdoria. It is their fourth consecutive league title and this time, the Turin club will be eyeing a Champions League win.

The Old Lady defeated AS Monaco in the quarter final of the European competition 1-0 on aggregate in order to seal a berth in the last four of the competition. Massimiliano Allegri will be hoping his side can keep a clean sheet against the reigning champions.

Meanwhile, Real made it to the semi final of the Champions League after defeating their derby rivals and last season's finalist Atletico Madrid. It was on-loan striker Javier Hernandez's late goal that helped Carlo Ancelotti's side progress to the later stages of the competition.

No club have managed to defend the Champions League and Real are in the firm position to achieve that feat this season. They are one step away from making it to the finals for the second year in a row.

What Managers Say

Massimiliano Allegri: "It's not every day you get to play Real Madrid so we have to keep our heads to reach the final. If we don't get there, it'll be expected."

Carlo Ancelotti: "[On Sunday] we will see if Benezema can train with the team. The good thing is that Bale played 30 minutes without any problems. We have recovered a very important player [in Bale] and it would be even better if we could get Karim back too."
