Pepe spoke about how difficult this match will be.

We know how difficult it is to play here, so we have to play calm because we know there are no favorites right now. We must enjoy tomorrow's game and we are looking forward to defend the title and help Real Madrid, no matter who he plays. It will be a tough game against a typical Italian side who will be looking to defend, we will be ready for that and we are confident about earning a good result.

The defender talked about Juventus' strikers too.

Tévez is a warrior, he fights hard. But we are not only focused on him, they have quality players like Morata. It's going to be beautiful to face Morata, he made his debut when I was in Real Madrid. He's a good kid and we're happy to play against him in such a special game. All friendships will be put to one side once the first whistle sounds. Both of us want to win the game.

What does Ramos provide?

Ramos is strong on set pieces and he is giving us a very good stability which helps the team a lot. We don't care where he plays.

There is no pressure.

Everything is at stake, but it also was that way last month. We're looking forward to reach the Final and we are fighting for La Liga in the meantime. This is what we must do as Real Madrid players.

He also praised Ancelotti.

It's a privilege to learn from him, as a player but also as a person.
