  • Report: Real Offer Cash Plus Player For Salah

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was at a loss to explain why his side's disappointing La Liga campaign contrasts with their dominant displays in the Champions League ahead of their quarter-final second leg against Juventus on Wednesday. The Turin club have visited Real Madrid eight times in their history, losing five and winning just twice.

And with his 29th birthday looming on the horizon this summer, should one of England's big guns fork out the mammoth fee it would take to prise him away?

The Welsh forward didn't start last season's Champions League final victory over Juventus in Cardiff, and he hasn't been a regular even when fit this season.

Bayern have already wrapped up their sixth consecutive Bundesliga title and are a goal up here going into the second leg. Pacific Time at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid, Spain.

Real Madrid advanced to the quarterfinals after ousting Paris Saint-Germain in the Round of 16, while Juventus advanced to the quarterfinals after beating Tottenham in the Round of 16. It was perhaps no wonder that Gianluigi Buffon lost control after a call that came so late in the game after a valiant performance, the goalkeeper dismissed "Zidane style" in what looks certain to be his last ever appearance in the Champions League.
