Atl. Madrid vs Juventus Prediction & Betting tips
Two European top clubs and recent finalists are already facing each other in the eighth final of the Champions League. Can Ronaldo push his new employer to great heights?
Atlético Madrid will have thought about her last group match in the past month. By winning a 0-0 draw at Club Brugge, the team of coach Diego Simeone lost the leading position in Group A to Borussia Dortmund. As a result, the Spaniards entered the box as number two and a very strong opponent rolled out with Juventus.
Nevertheless, Atlético will enter the diptych with confidence, because the team managed to reach the final twice in the past five years, which was eventually lost to Real Madrid. Atlético also managed to win the Europa League three times in the past ten years, which means that Rojiblancos can rightfully be called a European top club.
Last weekend Atlético crawled against fellow townsman Rayo Vallecano through the eye of the needle and hardly managed to prevent new loss of points. Fifteen minutes before the end, Antoine Griezmann made the only goal of the game. In the Primera Divison, Atletico is currently second, with seven points behind leader FC Barcelona. The team has the least passed defense from Spain, but also has great problems with scoring. Behind Griezmann no player in the selection could score more than twice in the competition.
Juventus can fully focus on the Champions League. At home, the team is unapproachable and the eighth league title in a row does not seem to be able to escape the team of coach Massimo Allegri. After 24 games Juve won 21 times and played three times, making the gap at number two Napoli has grown to thirteen points. In addition, Juve has made the most goals and collected the least goals by distance. In the Champions League, the team lost twice: in the group stage both Manchester United and Young Boys were too strong for the Old Lady.
The challenge for Ronaldo and his men this season is therefore in Europe, where the team wants to take revenge on the dramatic elimination of last season against Real Madrid, when the team seemed to make up a 0-3 home defeat in Bernabeu, but in the 97th minute had to swallow the 1-3 via a questionable penalty. Also the year before, Juventus just did not succeed in the champions ball, when the final against Real Madrid was lost again.
Juventus can have Atletico and almost completely fit selection. Only winger Juan Cuadrado is missing due to an injury.
