Real Madrid enter this leg looking comfortable with their 3-0 first leg victory putting them in pole position.

Omens indicate that Real should progress, having progressed after winning first leg away on 31 out of 32 occasions.

The Galacticos are also on a 24 game run in which they have scored with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring in his last ten Champions League games, dating back to last season’s final which also came against Juventus.

Although Juventus will come here and throw the kitchen sink at Real, I fancy a home win because they just look unbeatable at minute.

Prediction: Real Madrid 2-1 Juventus (Real Madrid to progress 5-1 on aggregate)

Result: Real Madrid 1-3 Juventus (Real Madrid win 4-3 on aggregate)


Bayern Munich vs Sevilla (Bayern Munich lead 2-1 on aggregate)

Bayern Munich might hold a 2-1 lead but this tie is far from over as Sevilla aim to strike back.

Since winning the 2012-13 Champions League, Bayern has exited the competition against Spanish clubs in last four seasons. 

That stat will help boost Sevilla, who know how to dump an European giant out 2-1 on their own turf, having stunned Manchester United at Old Trafford in last round by that score line.

Bayern however have lost just three home games against Spanish sides and have progressed from 15 out of 16 ties when they won away in first leg.

Prediction wise, this looks tight because there are statistics to support why both teams should progress. 

I am just going to go for a draw.

Prediction: Bayern Munich 1-1 Sevilla (Bayern Munich to progress 3-2 on aggregate)

Result: Bayern Munich 0-0 Sevilla (Bayern Munich win 2-1 on aggregate)
