Real Madrid will face an injury-depleted Juventus

Just as Real Madrid had to face Paris Saint-Germain without Kroos and Modric ready enough to start, it's Juventus' time to face injuries. Sami Khedira left Germany's match against Spain with a knee injury and has joined Chiellini and Alex Sandro in the injury report, while Pjanic and Benatia will be suspended for the first leg as well.

It's safe to say that Chiellini will try his very best to be on the pitch considering that right now he's only questionable and that coach Allegri will have a hard time finding his starters for the defensive line. Chiellini is a very tough and veteran player and he will most likely play. The extent of Khedira's injury is still unknown.

Real Madrid are considered the favorites to beat Juventus but the Italian side proved to be a very solid team with plenty of heart during their tie against Tottenham, where they struggled and yet managed to find a way to overcome their deficit and beat Pochettino's side.
