Madrid, the defending European and Spanish champion, was considered the early favorite after keeping its top players from a season ago and routing Barcelona 5-1 on aggregate in the Spanish Super Cup. In last season's Champions League Dembele's assist count was five. The outcome of the match is likely to be decided in the midfield and Juventus have in Matuidi and Pjanic, a unique combination of mental and physical strength, which can prove to be vital.

Speaking at the press conference ahead of the game, Valverde admitted that Juventus are a great team but they'll try to play with high enthusiasm.
