In the race for the Champions League title, Real Madrid have a clear advantage over Juventus, and are now on a two-game winning streak, having only lost once.
It was not easy, however, for Juventus, who have lost three of their last four.
With the league’s top three sides on a three-match winning streak (the most of any side), Real Madrid will have to take a big step forward in order to keep up.
Here are some key points:1.
Real Madrid are back in the title race.
With four matches remaining, Real have already clinched a spot in the final, having beaten Real Zaragoza 1-0 at the Bernabeu.
It means they now have two games remaining and two matches remaining in Serie A, where Juventus have lost all three.
Real have not lost in their last three games, winning five of their previous six.
In all, Real has scored 22 goals in their five matches, and have scored 16 goals in the last six.
It has also created five chances for Juventus in the game.
It remains to be seen if they will be able to continue this form in the Champions Cup semi-final, which will be played on the last day of the campaign.
The game against Roma will be important.
It is likely that Real Madrid, who will be in the same Champions League group as Juventus, will win that match.
In the second leg, they will face Napoli, who won last season’s title by beating Real Sociedad 2-1 at the San Siro.
Napoli are still without the injured Diego Costa, and it is difficult to see how they will cope with a Juventus side that is now ranked sixth in the world.
Napoli are also without Sergio Ramos, who is suspended for this match.
Real will also face a Juventus team without the suspended Sergio Ramos and Leonardo Bonucci, who both missed the last match with knee ligament damage.
Juventus are ranked seventh in the league, with the Bianconeri just behind them.
