Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro admits he expects a backlash from Juventus fans tonight.

Cannavaro faces his former club for the first time since quitting the Bianconeri two years ago and said: "I am happy to return to find people with whom I spent two phenomenal years, the best of my sporting career.

"I have a good relationship with my former comrades and with the fans, but despite this I think tomorrow will be tense because I left when Juve was relegated to Serie B and this was not appreciated by some people."
