Standing between La Madama and that hope are none other than the reigning European champions, with Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid seeking to repeat last-season’s accomplishment. Massimiliano Allegri is fully aware of how difficult this trip the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu will be, telling reporters this week, per the club’s official website:
It’s important for me and particularly for Juventus to be back in a Champions League semi-final. We hadn’t got this far for a long time. Our objective this year was just to get out of the group.
Nobody could have imagined that we’d be 95 minutes away from Berlin right now. We were 180 minutes away from the final and now there are just 95 to go. It’s not easy and I think it would be an extraordinary achievement for us to reach the final. via | Bleacher Report
