Real Madrid: Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has warned Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid to expect a tough match when the two teams meet tomorrow night.

Both European giants will wage a battle for a place in the final of the 2009 Peace Cup. Juventus beat Real Madrid twice in the Champions League last season.

Squad overhauls in Madrid and Turin, have seen players such as Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema join the Galacticos, while Felipe Melo and Diego signed for the Old Lady, and so the game promises to be different compared to last term.

"It`s always good to play against great players [Ronaldo], especially those of international calibre that you don`t meet in your own league," Chiellini told the press.

"We are facing Ronaldo and Benzema while Real Madrid are still adapting. They have made major changes, more than us.”

"They have a great squad when you look at their players."

The game kicks off on Friday evening in Seville`s Sanchez Pijuan stadium.
