Cüneyt Çakir to referee Juventus vs. Real Madrid clash

Cristiano Ronaldo in practice ahead of Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League against Juventus

Last season in this same competition, Juventus were beaten by Real Madrid in the final. "We need some extraordinary marking and some excellent defensive play".

It is a big nine days coming up for Zinedine Zidane's side as after Tuesday's match Madrid return to league action with a derby against Atletico Madrid on Sunday, before the return leg at the Santiago Bernabeu on April 11.

Real Madrid has suffered a disappointing domestic season where they stand on the third spot whereas Juventus were nearly knocked out by the Premier league heavyweights Tottenham in the pre-quarter-final.

However, the veteran also said Juventus have to play to their strengths in order to beat Madrid, which implies that Spanish side will have most of the ball, but will have to work hard to break down the Juve defense and watch they don't get caught on the break.

It was then the turn of the first of the two recurring cast members this time out, to have their say on proceedings. He's scored so many goals I've lost count.

The loss of communications prevents the transfer of commands from earth to the spacecraft to fire the engines to change its orbit. The satellite was expected to help India in providing mobile communication through multi-beam coverage facility.

Ronaldo hammered the Italian giants by himself when he scored twice in the last year's finale clash.

Tuesday's game will be Cakir's ninth in handling Real Madrid games in the Champions League having officiated the group stage game the defending champion and Tottenham.

Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia and midfielder Miralem Pjanic are banned after being booked in the last-16 victory over Tottenham. Alex Sandro is expected to miss out after sustaining a hamstring injury over the global break, and Federico Bernardeschi remains out indefinitely.

Cristiano Ronaldo's double in last year's final means he has seven goals in five games for Madrid against Juventus - and Buffon said he admires how Ronaldo had honed his game in recent years to become a "true assassin" in front of goal. That they sent on Douglas Costa, Juan Cuadrado and Rodrigo Bentancur - three men who will all be starting games at the World Cup - as replacements only compounded the quality of those changes, but in all honesty, what could Gattuso (or indeed anyone else) actually do as a response?

"I have endless admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo", the goalkeeper said.
