[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Matchday 4] Winless in its first three UEFA Champions League matches, Juventus faces a must-win game against Real Madrid at home on Tuesday.

After opening with two draws, Juve lost at Madrid, 2-1, two weeks ago to fall into third place behind Real Madrid and Galatasaray.

"It's definitely a fundamental game and important for our future in the Champions League," Juventus coach Antonio Conte says. "We're looking forward to it a lot."

Juve, which is coming off a 1-0 win at Parma on Saturday for its third straight win in Serie A that moved it to within three points of leader Roma, will be without suspended Italian national team defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Juve played rather well in the first meeting in Madrid, coming back from an early Cristiano Ronaldo goal to tie the score, but Chiellini had a nightmare, conceding a penalty kick that Cristiano Ronaldo converted and getting sent off on either side of halftime.

"I defined them as devastating, especially if they are allowed to play the game they prefer," Conte added. "Cristiano Ronaldo, [Gareth] Bale, [Karim] Benzema, [Angel] Di Maria, to say but a few, are extraordinary, fantastic when they have the field in front of them and room to exploit, so we've got to be careful and do what we did in Madrid. We have to try to avoid the mistakes we made there, and try to hurt them, but we know we're up against an extraordinarily strong attack."
