Madrid has depleted defense for 2nd leg against Juventus

Andrea Barzagli has missed out on Juventus' squad for their Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

Spanish website, Don Balon reports that Messi now fears for the Ballon d'Or.

However, this is also all Real Madrid are focused on and Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to play as he builds another record.

With Cristiano Ronaldo on top form, Real are rightly favorites to progress to the semifinals.

Madrid won the first leg 3-0 in Turin, with Ronaldo scoring with a spectacular bicycle kick for his second goal of the match.

If Ronaldo wins the prize, it would be a stunning sixth Ballon d'Or for him.

Los Blancos has remained unbeaten in their last five La Liga games, as the team settled to a 1-1 draw with cross-city rivals Atletico Madrid on Sunday also at the Bernabeu.

We have one UCL final tomorrow, and if we get through we'll see if we have more. Even Zidane's system is suited to accommodating this predatorial Ronaldo, a 4-4-2, with Karim Benzema playing the supporting role and wingers instructed to supply deliveries into the box.

"Bernabeu is our reference point and we want to follow his path. Federation Internationale de Football Association named us the best club of the 20th century in 2000 and now we are working hard to get the same recognition in the 21st", Perez told Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport yesterday.

It means this is Ronaldo's third most prolific Champions League showing to date already and, with Real nearly certain to reach the semifinals, he is unlikely to finish here.

"Liverpool showed in the first leg with Manchester City that an early goal can get any team on the ropes".

Oliver will officiate his second Champions League knockout match of the season. It was a good game, but there is still 50 per cent of the tie to be played. "As far as I know, an English club wanted to have him in August and the offer was rejected but I'm sure there will be many more if Real Madrid decides not to have him or the player decides to leave".

As ever you can watch all the action from Wednesday's Champions League games Live & Exclusive on beIN SPORTS CONNECT. "The game is long and therefore we will need some balance, but to do it will take a pinch of healthy madness from everyone".

"The whole world will be watching and we must play without thinking of regrets or what we could've done".
