Juventus must believe anything is possible in their bid to produce a Champions League great escape against Real Madrid, says Andrea Pirlo.

Gareth Bale is named in Real Madrid's starting XI as Los Blancos take on Juventus in their Champions League quarter-final second leg at the Bernabeu.

Bale was given the nod to start against the Turin side but a disappointing first 45 minutes prompted the legendary French coach to bring him off at the break, with Lucas Vasquez replacing him.

Tonight will be the 21st European meeting between Real Madrid and Juventus.

Paulo Dybala's red card also leaves Juve shorn of one of their most potent attacking weapons for the return match at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. Both games are slated for kickoff at 10։45pm Armenia time.

The second leg of this Champions League quarter-final kicks off at 19.45 United Kingdom time (18.45 GMT). In the other quarterfinal second leg of the day, Bayern Munich will play at home against Sevilla. It was perhaps no wonder that Gianluigi Buffon lost control after a call that came so late in the game after a valiant performance, the goalkeeper dismissed "Zidane style" in what looks certain to be his last ever appearance in the Champions League.
