Watch out for Real's Fantastic Four, warns Conte

Juventus 2

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has told his side to be wary of Real Madrid's attacking threat this evening and named four potential danger men.

Juventus host Real Madrid this evening knowing a win is vital for their Champions League campaign but coach Antonio Conte can see four major threats.

The Bianconeri are looking for revenge after their 2-1 defeat at the Bernabeu when Giorgio Chiellini was controversially sent off for what seemed to be simulation by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juve have no room for error if they are to navigate a route through from Group B as they are currently in third, two points behind Galatasaray and seven back from Real Madrid.

While there was much in the Bernabeu contest to make Juve believe they can triumph at home, coach Conte is well aware of the quality of the opposition.

"Real have extraordinary attacking quality," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "They can be devastating, especially if you give space to the quartet of Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel Di Maria and Gareth Bale.

"They are fantastic when there is open space and the game flows. We must be very tactically aware and repeat the good work we did in Madrid, looking to hurt Real with possession and the quality of our players. It's a historic battle."

Conte was also asked about what formation he will select for the massive match in Turin.

"We will see," he replied cryptically. "We have two systems at our disposal. We played very well with a 4-3-3 in Madrid, then we went back to 3-5-2 in Serie A, which in my opinion is more attacking than 4-3-3.

"We have tested them both and we can change things up during the game if we need to. What matters most is the way we interpret the game and the intensity."
