04.05.2015: DEBAYAN BHATTACHARYYA : Juventus look to make their first final since 2003, Real aim for 'La Undecima'. Juventus and Real Madrid lock horns in the UEFA Champions League semi-final on Tuesday, what expect to be an evenly poised encounter with Juventus playing the first leg at home.

Both Juventus and Real Madrid advanced to the semi-final stage by winning their respective quarter-finals against AS Monaco and Atletico Madrid by 1-0 over two legs. The Spanish outfit have faced the Italian giants six times in the champions league with the old lady progressing the previous time they met in the semi-final stage back in 2003.





UCL 2002/03 Semifinal : 14.05.2003 : Juventus -- 3-1 -- Real Madrid
UCL 2002/03 Semifinal : 06.05.2003 : Real Madrid -- 2-1 -- Juventus



In European competitions, both have met 16 times with the Blancos lead the head-to-head record by eight wins to seven with a solitary draw. Their last meeting in the champions league was a 2-2 draw in Turin in November 2013. Juventus won 45 games in their 55 competitive matches at home, with nine draws and 1 loss. So, the Old Lady have made it a fortress, one thing the defending champions should be wary of, but that's not all. Real Madrid have been eliminated in their last three European semi-finals against Italian sides (Juventus 2003, Torino 1992, and AC Milan 1989).

  • Juventus (ITALY) and Real Madrid (SPAIN) met 16 times previously in this competition where Real Madrid won 8 times and Juventus 7 times, only one draw between them.

  • Real Madrid (SPAIN) coach Carlo Ancelotti has won only five of his previous 23 matches versus Juventus, where he lost 6 and drew 12.

  • Juventus have lost only one, won 45 and drew 8 matches of their last 54 competitive matches at home.

  • TWO teams Keepers are the captain of the team - Buffon for Juv and Cassilas for Real...

    Team wise speaking, Juventus is not sure about French international and one of world's best young prospect, Paul Pogba, whether he'll be fit in time for the match. Paul Pogba is currently out of action since mid-march nursing a torn thigh. Pogba is one of the key men for Massimiliano Allegri, accompanying midfield general Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal. Experience campaigner Claudio Marchisio is there to take his place.

    Record (Juventus): 2nd in Group A, beat Borussia Dortmund in Round of 16, and AS Monaco in Quarterfinals
    Goals For: 13
    Goals Allowed: 5
    Leading Goal Scorer: Carlos Tevez - goals 6

    Record (Real Madrid): 1st in Group B, beat FC Schalke in Round of 16, and Atletico Madrid in Quaterfinals
    Goals For: 22
    Goals Allowed: 6
    Leading Goal Scorer: Cristiano Ronaldo - goals 8


    As far as Real Madrid is concerned, Luka Modric will be out of action and forward duo Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema are expected to start who are both recovering from injuries. It will be interesting to see what team Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti field for the crucial tie.

    Due to the Croatian's absence, Ancelotti fielded centre back Pepe in midfield along with Toni Kroos giving Raphael Varane a shot at the centre-half position. Both sides have a deadly strike force in their artillery. Juve's Carlos Tevez has scored a total of 28 goals in all competitions, 6 coming in the champions league and his partner, Alvaro Morata former Real player has 9 goals so far in his credit. The youngster has wowed everyone in Italy after his summer move to the Turin based side.

    Tevez's former Manchester United team mate Cristiano Ronaldo has so far scored 53 goals this season, 8 in the champions league one behind top scored Luiz Adriano of Shakhtar Donektsk. Apart from Ronaldo there is James Rodriguez who has been in excellent form for the past few games scoring some spectacular goals. Ancelotti might opt for United loanee Javier Hernandez. Hernandez scored the winning goal against Atletico Madrid in the second leg of the quarter-final stage.

    Throughout the season he was nowhere to be seen but he has turned around well for the past few games.Both the teams will be heading into the match with their respective league wins with Juve rounding off the Seria A title to their name. Real Madrid have the edge and look a better side on paper, but the game is not won on paper. Real would like to sneak in a few away goals, while Juventus won’t mind a goalless draw but it would be an advantage for them going into second leg if they could get the better of the defending champions.

  • UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - 2014-15 PREVIEW : (SF - FINAL)

    PREVIEW : 1st Leg Semi2 : Bayern Munich (GERMANY) VS Barcelona (SPAIN)

    Bayern up for an encore, Barca looking to avenge 2013 trauma.

    05.05.2015 : DEBAYAN BHATTACHARYYA : Barcelona face off Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions league semi-final match on Wednesday with the Catalan giants playing the first leg at home. Barcelona and Bayern Munich advanced to the semi-final stage by winning their respective quarter-finals 5-1 and 7-4 over two legs. After a poor first leg against Porto, the Bavarians came back in style and trounced Porto 6-1 at the Allianz Arena, making sure everyone that they are pretty much the same Bayern side as they were before.

    Past echoes comes back to haunt Barcelona as they look to get the better of the German outfit. The last time they met at the semi-final stage two years back Barcelona slumped to a 7-0 aggregate loss, the biggest aggregate loss in the history of Champions league. They lost 4-0 away to Bayern in the first leg and 3-0 in the following leg at the Camp Nou. Bayern then went onto to clinch the title at Wembly.

    This will be the third time they are facing each other in an European competition semi-final, with Bayern winning the the other two meetings. In the last 8 Champions league matches Barca managed to win only once with Bayern winning 5 times with 2 draws. The Germans have a pretty good record at Camp Nou as well winning 3 out of 4 matches statistically,

    the Catalans do not hold a good record against them, a point which the Germans have proved.This time around it could be a different ball game after all. Barcelona’s star studded attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez are in excellent form and have scored a staggering total of 108 goals in all competitions with Lionel Messi himself scoring 51 goals in 50 games. He is also the top scorer for Barcelona this season in the Champions League with 8 goals one behind top scorer Luiz Adriano of Shakhtar Donetsk.

  • It will Barca's 11th Semi final appearence and 7th Semi final in the last eight season. Barcelona have won only one of their eight previous matches versus Bayern Munich in European competitions (D2, L5).

  • It will 5 times title winner Bayern's 4th straight Semi final appearence. Only Barcelona (6) and Real Madrid (5) have appeared in more consecutively.

  • Thomas Muller has scored 27 goals in the Champions League (66 matches) and is now the top scoring German player in Champions League.

  • Lionel Messi scored 2 goals for Barcelona's last five goals against Bayern. The match on 6th may will also be special for Lionel Messi, who will make his 100th European appearance for the club.

  • Bayern Coach Pep Guardiola also spent 11 years with Barcelona as a player, winning six league titles and one Champions League.

    The trio kicked off a slow start but then they began to get use to their stride and then went on to eclipse everyone. The trio is in some form and it won't take much time for them to split the defence line apart. Jerome Boateng and co. needs to keep this thing in mind. As far as the overall team is concerned, Barcelona has no injury worries and will have a fully fit squad for the tie. While Bayern Munich have a number of key players out injured. The Bavarian's league top scorer Arjen Robben and full-back, David Alaba will miss the remainder of the season. Robben will be heavily missed in attack and Alaba in defence.

    Another star player Robert Lewandowski, suffered a concussion as well as breaking his jaw and his nose in Bayern Munich's penalty shoot-out loss to Borussia Dortmund in the DFB Pokal semi-final, last week. Bayern's sporting director Matthias Sammer have no intention to risk Lewandowski for the semi-final tie even if the doctors give the green signal.

    Still he has returned to training wearing a mask covering his face, but whether he'll get a start is not sure. Franck Ribery remains a doubtful starter who has been out injured since mid-march. It will be a homecoming for Bayern’s boss Pep Guardiola who spent 4 successful seasons with the Catalans, leading them to as many as 14 trophies.

    Guardiola knows the club more than anyone else and it would be interesting to see what tactics he has up in his sleeves for the likes of Messi, Iniesta, Mascherano, Pique and Xavi, the successful men during his reign. Guardiola's counterpart will be his former Barcelona team-mate, during his playing days, Luis Enrique. So we can say an all 'Barcelona Re-union' is on the cards. Pep Guardiola will be without his key players and he needs to field the best possible line-up against an in-form Barca side. Barcelona won 7 times this season against big teams only losing two times to Real Madrid and Paris Saint German.

    Barcelona's weakness has been defending for the past few seasons and again Bayern will look to exploit that particular area. It lingered on this season as well but since winning the second reverse fixture against arch-rivals Real Madrid, the defenders have been in good shape.

    Barcelona will be heading into the semi-final full of confidence after getting the better of Cordoba, a convincing 8-0 victory in La Liga. On the other hand, the Germans have already won the Bundesliga title, but lost their last league game away to Bayer Leverkusen by 2-0. Morale could end up being a factor for Bayern with their key players out injured and Barcelona in terrific form.

    But what the Germans did against Porto in the second leg, no way the Catalans are taking them lightly. This time around both teams are evenly poised. It's not going to be one of those one-sided matches like their last meeting. The first leg will speak a lot about the second. Pretty much it will go down the wire.

    RECORD : Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez now have an astounding 111 goals between them this season.
    RECORD : Messi's career total of Champions League goals to 77, beating the last record of 76 of Cristiano Ronaldo set only the night before against Juventus.

    Barcelona have almost put this semi-final to bed leaving Bayern hoping for a rare miracle. Throughout the match Barca had the better chances, one of the best chances falling to Luis Suarez when he was through on goal, one-on-one with Neuer, but the world cup winner did really well to stick out his leg at the right time.

    Bayern, surprisingly failed to have a single shot on target, but had a glorious chance to score when Thomas Muller played a low ball into the box from the right flank, falling to Lewandowski who slides it wide off target with no Barca defender present to stop him. First half score was goalless.

    Second half saw Bayern defenders tighten things up at the back, but their defence was finally exposed as Messi collected a lay-off from Alves and unleashed a low left-footed drive that flew into the bottom-right corner. That was not all, Messi was far from finished.

    After collecting the ball from Ivan Rakitic, Messi teased Jerome Boateng before expertly flicking the ball with his right boot and lofting a magnificent chipped finish over Neuer and into the bottom-left corner. Neymar killed the tie in style beating Neuer one-on-one in time added on.

    Juventus draws first blood, Los Blancos hoping for a turnaround at the Bernabeau

    DEBAYAN BHATTACHARYYA : Carlos Tevez's second half penalty and Alvaro Morata's first half strike gives Juventus the edge going into the second leg with Cristiano Ronaldo getting an all important away goal. Juventus deservedly took the lead dominating play for the most part of the first half, Stephen Lichsteiner sent Tevez through on goal and his shot was just pushed away by Casillas before Alvaro Morata, former Real man scored from close range.

    Real made it all square in the 27th minute when James Rodriguez's looping cross from the right of the penalty box 'found ronaldo's head, being unmarked. After getting the equalizer Real were the better side with their continuous attack. They could have easily made it 2-1 when James Rodriguez’s header came off the woodwork. After a cautious opening to the second half, the tie took a twist in the 57th minute. Tevez led a lightning Juve counter-attack from

    his own half and Carjaval sent the former Manchester City man tumbling when he tried to nick the ball, leaving referee Martin Atkinson with no choice but to award a penalty. And there was no mistake from Tevez, who drilled his shot straight down the middle to register his 29th goal of another prolific season. Juve then turn defensive for the remainder of the half bringing on Andrea Barzagli as the fifth defender.

    Real threw numbers forward in an attempt to find the leveller, and Ronaldo let Juve off the hook when he failed to guide Rodriguez's left-wing cross on target. Juve could have had a third in injury time when substitute Fernando Llorente headed Andrea Pirlo's teasing free-kick straight at Casillas, but Juve Boss Massimiliano Allegri is sure to be satisfied with a one-goal lead.

     Barcelona bs Juventus in the Final of 2014-15 UCL FINAL PREVIEW : ADHIRAJ DUTTA 04.05.2015 : Saturday's UEFA Champions League final will undoubtedly use up a lot of the same old soccer clichés. It will likely be billed as 'The battle between two polar opposites,' comparing the free scoring and adventurous Barcelona against the stubborn but defensive Juventus. To fall into this easy trap may be folly especially if history has anything to say about it. Just as the four-time Italian champions were celebrating their 3-2 aggregate semi-final victory over the title holders Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, pundits and other members of the media were already preparing their eulogy.
    PROBABLE LINE UP - BARCELONA : Stegen, Alba,Pique, Mascherano, Alves, Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta, Neymar, Suarez, Messi.
    PROBALBE LINe Up - JUVENTUS : Buffon, Evra, Barzagli, Bonucci, Lichtsteiner, Pirlo, Pogba, Marchisio, Vidal, Tevez,Morata

    Barcelona, like in many of their European encounters, are undeniably the favorites heading into the final in Berlin on Saturday. The Blaugrana have hit their stride at the right time and with 113 goals between them this season, the Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar triumvirate are clicking and have the world wondering if they are the best forward line in the history of the sport. Lionel Messi, the world’s number one player, is continuing to defy all logic and is at his best. Surely it would take an equally massive squad to stop them.

    However, their opponents in the final, Juventus, are not your typical underdogs. One of the oldest teams in the competition at 29.1 years of age (second only to Manchester City 29.6), the Bianconeri are playing some of their best football in the club’s recent history. It all harkens back to another final involving Barcelona and an underdog Italian squad.

    Twenty one years ago, Barcelona headed to the Champions League final in Athens as the favorites against Fabio Capello's Milan. The favoritism shown to Barcelona went beyond seeing them as the superior team, many saw the final as merely a formality. Cruyff’s 1994 'Dream Team' also sported arguably the world's number one player at the time in Romario along with an amazing supporting cast with Stoichkov, Guardiola, Koeman and Zubizaretta just to name a few. Surely they would easily dispose of their defensive counterparts from Italy.

    AC Milan, however, were undoubtedly one the best Italian teams ever assembled. Despite being Italian champions three years running and Champions League finalists from the previous season, they were not given much respect heading into the match. The denigration hit a crescendo when Johan Cruyff was pictured holding the Champions League trophy aloft before the encounter, adding fuel to the Rossoneri fire. Milan at the time were one of the best defensive teams in Europe allowing only fifteen goals in the entire Serie A season and 4 goals in 18 European matches.

    They represented the perfect foil for Cruyff’s Blaugrana. Without much surprise the final was billed as attack vs. defense, creativity vs. negativity. However the surprise came in the 4-0 final score where Milan dismantled Barcelona to claim their fifth Champions League (European Cup) victory.

    This time it's Massimiliano Allegri's Juventus that have the opportunity to play the spoiler to Barcelona in this final. Of the final four teams remaining in the Champions League Juventus were the most unlikely to make it this far especially after they were drawn with defending champions, Real Madrid. They have defied all expectations this year in Europe and currently, Juventus probably represent the best opportunity to de-rail Lionel Messi and Barcelona from their quest of adding another trophy to the ever expanding cabinet at the Camp Nou. Juventus are the best defensive team, in what is traditionally the best defensive league in Europe, but to label the Bianconeri as a typical Italian defensive squad would be foolish.
