Group B contains two of the biggest teams in this year's Champions League, and coming into this game Real are dominating in a big way.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and co. have won two from two so far in this year's competition, dispatching Galatasaray and FC Copenhagen to date. Juventus meanwhile are lagging behind and have struggled to exert themselves on the group. They have two draws from two games, and are four points behind group leader's Real Madrid right now.

If Real win today they will have at least a five point lead at the top of the group, but it could be as much as 7 points if Copenhagen and Galatasaray draw.

Juventus will see this game as one they cannot lose, and if they do it would leave their Champions League hopes on edge moving into the second half of the group stages.

The Italian team will want to pull their good Serie A form into their European campaign. Many have been surprised that they have struggled so much in Europe this season so far, as their domestic form has been solid.

For Real Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Raphael Varane are all expected to be available after overcoming various injuries. That should provide manager Carlo Ancelotti with more depth and options that he has had for much of the early part of this season, which has suffered from various injury setbacks.

Real Madrid vs Juventus in Group B of the Champions League will kick off at 2.45 p.m. ET.
