With 11 European Champion Clubs' Cups between them, Real Madrid CF and Juventus are two of the most decorated teams in the competition. UEFA.com previews their upcoming UEFA Champions League Group B meeting with the help of coaches Carlo Ancelotti and Antonio Conte.
"Juventus are very motivated and very well organised, with quality players," Madrid boss Ancelotti told UEFA.com. "They've signed some important players in the summer, like [Fernando] Llorente and [Carlos] Tévez who have given them some extra quality. The team have played together for three years under the same coach and it's a well-structured club."
"It's a massive test for us," added Conte, whose second-placed Juve side trail the Merengues by four points after opening with draws against FC København and Galatasaray AŞ. "We have a year's experience under our belts and that's very important for a lot of our players who were playing in the Champions League for the first time last season.
"Madrid are arguably one of the most ambitious teams. We're facing a club that really want this title, because of their history and their hunt for a tenth European Cup. I think it will be a nice challenge for us to go and compete with them at the Santiago Bernabéu, as well as at home. It will tell us how well our development is going."
