Wonderful run from Ronaldo down the right sees him skin three before clipping a cross to the far post - but no one is there for the tap-in.
86'
This will be six matches without a CL win for Juve, unless....
85'
Five minutes left for Juventus to end their winless run in the CL. Or can Madrid get a winner and book that last 16 spot?
84'

GOAL! Juventus pull level! Llorente holds off Varane to meet Caceres' right-wing cross with a perfectly placed header. 2-2!
63'

A shocking attempted back pass by Caceres there, allowing Benzema to collect possession and coolly tee up Ronaldo.
52'

43'
It was a silly mistake by Varane that led to the opener but you have to say it is no more than Juventus deserve.
42'
That's Vidal's third goal in four matches.

Juventus have bossed this half but have yet to make their dominance count.
36'

33'
Bale winds up the left foot from 30 yards... but it's wide of the far post.

28'
WHAT A SAVE! Casillas pulls off a sensational stop with his leg to keep out Marchisio's far post header from Tevez's pinpoint cross.
27'
Ronaldo crashes in a high cross that Juventus just about clear. We've not seen too much of Real's front three as of yet.
26'
STAT: Juventus have won only four of their last 11 Champions League home games.
25'
More patient approach play by Juventus concludes with Pirlo rasping a shot over the top from 25 yards.

17'
Pogba looking very much like the midfielder Man United have been craving for a couple of seasons now...
16'

15'
STAT: Only Arsenal (14 in 2010-11) have scored more goals after three group games than Real Madrid have this season (12).
14'

13'
Juve take advantage of some lax play by Ramos and Llorente fires in a shot that is well blocked by Varane.
12'
Tevez dips a shoulder and jinks past Ramos before dropping to the floor in the area. Referee Webb is having none of it.

CLOSE! Pirlo loses possession on the edge of the Real box and the visitors counter at pace. Ronaldo skips down the right and lashes in a cross turned shot that arrows just past the far post.
10'
First corner of the contest goes the way of Juventus... Pirlo takes it short to Kwadwo Asamoah who whips it to the far post. Casillas comes and gets a decent punch to it.
9'
LATEST in GROUP B: Copenhagen 1-0 Galatasaray. Braaten.

KICK OFF! Real Madrid gets us underway sporting a blinding orange strip.
19.42
The players are out and we are just moments away from kick off. Can Madrid make it four wins from four and book their place in the last 16? Or will Juventus reignite their own hopes? The stage is set...
19.38
Ronaldo is looking to break yet another record tonight.

FACT: @Cristiano is the 7-goal leading scorer. Group stage record is 8 held by @RvN1776 (04/05), Inzaghi & Crespo (both 02/03)

19.35
Carlos Tevez is hoping to bring an end to a long-standing CL goal-drought tonight. The Argentina striker has not scored in Europe's elite competition since he netted for Man United on April 7, 2009. He told reporters: "I really hadn't realised it was so long since I last scored. If I haven't scored for four years, then let's hope that changes now."
19.30
HISTORY: The two sides met in the 1998 final in Amsterdam when a Predrag Mijatovic strike ended Madrid's 32-year wait for their seventh European Cup.
19.25
STAT: In 15 meetings between the two teams there has never been a draw. Home advantage has always been key, with Real winning five at home and just one in Turin. Juventus have also triumphed five times on their own turf.
19.20
Ancelotti: "It will be an interesting match. It's a chance for us to secure the qualification to the next round. I'm not happy with our defence but we have scored 42 goals in 15 games. Balance in football means defending and attacking well. The faster we qualify, the better for us."
19.15
Conte: "It’s a waste of time trying to hide. This will be a fundamental and beautiful game. It will be crucial if we want to continue in the Champions League. Ancelotti can count on an extraordinary and devastating offensive department. Especially if you leave them space in which to counter-attack. Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema, Di Maria and the rest are fantastic when they have space. We have to tactically repeat what we did in Madrid."
19.10
As for Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti selects his favoured 4-3-3 formation with Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo supporting Karim Benzema in attack. Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso continues his comeback from injury with a start at the heart of the midfield while Pepe partners Raphael Varane in defence. Sergio Ramos will operate at right back.
19.05
Antonio Conte opts for a 4-3-2-1 formation switching to a 4-3-3 when the Italians are on the front foot. The Juve boss will deploy the same back four that played in Madrid with Leonardo Bonucci replacing the suspended Giorgio Chiellini and Kwadwo Asamoah playing at left-back. Former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez starts in attack and will support the leading man, Fernando Llorente along with Claudio Marchisio.
