Juventus v Real Madrid - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Leg One

Real Madrid vs Juventus: Ramos & Dybala suspended

Matches News Preview

Both Sergio Ramos and Paulo Dybala will be suspended for the upcoming quarter-final second leg between Real Madrid and Juventus in the Champions League

Last season’s finalists met in Turin for the first leg last week with Real emerging with an outstanding 3-0 victory, which included a stunning overhead goal from Cristiano Ronaldo that even had the Juventus supporters on their feet applauding the star.

Real, who will be hosting the second leg at their Santiago Bernabeu, will be without their captain Sergio Ramos, who is serving a suspension for receiving too many bookings.

Another problem for Zinedine Zidane is the fact that Nacho and Jesús Vallejo are also injury doubts, which leaves the Frenchman with few options to cover at centre-back.

Meanwhile, Juventus will be without Dyabala after his sending off during the first leg with Rodrigo Bentancur also suspended due to an accumulation of bookings in the competition.

Miralem Pjanic and Medhi Benatia will return from suspension for Massimiliano Allgeri with Gonzalo Higuain set to return to the side after being rested on Saturday.
