Zidane opens up on the similarities between Real & Juventus

Ahead of their Champions League quarterfinal clash with Juventus, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says it will be different from what happened 10 months ago when both sides met in the final.

Real triumphed when both teams faced-off in the final of the competition last season, and while it looks likely that he may field the same team that faced the Old Lady almost a year ago, he says both games will not be the same.

“What happened 10 months ago has nothing to do with this game. This is another set of circumstances. A lot of time has passed so it’s not relevant and we could play a different team or the same one.

“Our league season has not been as good as we had hoped. But we have all our players back now apart from Nacho [out with a hamstring strain] everyone is available. While that gives me a selection headache, it’s good for us.”
