Juventus coach Allegri: Real Madrid are on the back foot

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri believes Real Madrid are on the back foot going into the Champions League semi.

Allegri is convinced the absence of Luka Modric is a blow to the Spaniards.

"They've already removed him - Luka Modric. Real Madrid have improved a great deal under Carlo Ancelotti's guidance.

"He brought so much international experience, won the 10th Champions League trophy and this year is back in the semi-final while in the running for the Liga.

"What shouldn't Juve do? A lot of things. They are an extraordinary squad with so much technique and pace. We'll need a great performance, two of them actually."
