Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 7:45pm BST. Live coverage of the game will be available on Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 1 HD, Sky Sports 5 and Sky Sports 5 HD.

Overview

The first leg in Turin saw Juventus register a 2-1 victory over the reigning European champions. It was former Real striker Alvaro Morata who gave the Old Lady an early lead, before it was cancelled by Cristiano Ronaldo's goal.

However, Carlos Tevez's penalty gave Massimiliano Allegri's side the crucial goal and also an advantage for the second leg. The only downside to the result is that Juventus have conceded an away goal, which could be the deciding factor.

The Spanish capital club will be hoping the home fans' support will help them turn the deficit in order to make it to the second consecutive final of Europe's elite club competition. Carlo Ancelotti has a huge task ahead of him in Real's chances of overcoming the hurdle.

The winner of the clash will face either Barcelona or Bayern Munich in the final. The Catalan club already has a 3-0 first leg advantage over the Bundesliga winners. They will face each other at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.

What managers said

Carlo Ancelotti: "We attacked in virtually every way we could, and we created a lot of danger [against Valencia]. If we play like this against Juventus, we will have good chances to make it into the final."

Massimiliano Allegri: "We have to focus and treat it as it's the most important game of the year. We have to try to secure qualification in Madrid that won't be easy for sure, but it could also take us to an unexpected final. Juventus are having a good spell from a physical point of view."
