Juventus vs Atl. Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
The last week of the UEFA Champions League was a complete surprise. The departure of Real Madrid (against Ajax Amsterdam) and Paris Saint-Germain (against Manchester United) can be described as a big surprise – maybe even a sensation – after the first leg results. This week the four remaining second legs are on the program and there is more potential for surprise. In view of the first leg, a progress of the Italians would be quite unexpected in the duel between Juventus and Atletico Madrid!
The Spaniards have already opened the door to the quarter-finals, after the first leg was won 2-0 in front of their home crowd. An away goal in Juventus Stadium would probably be the decision in this knockout duel, because then “CR7” & Co would need at least four hits. Accordingly, the Allegri-Eleven must find a good balance of offensive and defensive. The longer it is 0: 0, the more risk would have to go to the Italian series champion.
At the national level, the Old Lady from Turin is also unrivaled this year. After 27 games, 75 points are on the credit side; The Allegri team did not have to suffer a defeat in this Serie A season. With that, the Bianconeri are well on their way to surpassing their own point record (102 points). Due to the extremely comfortable situation in the table (18 points ahead), Massimiliano Allegri on Friday also could afford to give some regular players a break. The only 19-year-old youngster Moise Kean used this opportunity impressively and became with a double the Matchwinner. At 19 years and eight days he was the youngest double scorer at Juventus since 1982.
The fatigue after intense weeks should not be an excuse, because the stars around “CR7” had enough time to prepare for this trend-setting game. Despite the initial situation, the Portuguese superstar continues to believe in getting ahead and also encourages fans to think positive. In 32 games against the Rojiblancos Ronaldo has so far achieved 22 goals. Personnel Allegri must do without the suspended Alex Sandro, injury-related are Sami Khedira (heart problems), Douglas Costa, Andrea Barzagli and Juan Cuadrado also not an issue for the game against the Spaniards.
The 4-1 home win against Udinese Calcio last Friday was the 200th fixture at the Juventus Stadium, with a home record of 159 wins, 32 draws and only nine defeats. International have had only three defeats in the last 35 home games (21-12-3 balance sheet). With Juventus and Atletico Madrid in mind, predicting their home win is certainly justifiable given these numbers. Hope can give the Italians also the fact that Juventus was able to secure in 14 of 32 knockout duels despite first-leg defeat still the entry into the next round.
For his “egg dance” after the Gimenez goal in the first leg, the impulsive Diego Simeone was “only” sentenced to a fine; a suspension for the second leg was not required. However, Rojiblancos will be without their midfielder Thomas and striker Diego Costa due to yellow cards. Behind the stakes of Diego Godin (center-back) and Luis Felipe (left-back) is a question mark, both are battered and a bet decides only at short notice. A failure of this duo would certainly be a bitter weakening for the Rojiblancos. Instead of Costa, ex-Juventus player Alvaro Morata will probably start alongside Antoine Griezmann. The Spaniard, who has been with the Rojiblancos since January, scored 27 goals in 93 games for the Torino Old Woman.
In the group stage, the Spaniards slid in the Signal Iduna Park of Dortmund in a 0-4 debacle, the highest international defeat for the Madrid. Otherwise, the defensive is the absolute showpiece. This can be proved by looking at recent results. Goalkeeper Jan Oblak was able to keep his box clean in his last five competitive games. Although the offensive is not for a peat festival, but often a hit is enough to fix the victory. So also last weekend in the small derby against Leganes. This ended the last five competitive games all with less than 2.5 hits. Should the tip on the under 2.5 be right again between Juventus and Atletico Madrid, odds in the range of 1.70-1.75 lure.
Not only the 2-0 advantage from the first leg, but also the fact that the Spaniards have not lost a game against an Italian team for seven years, speaks for the Rojiblancos. In the 2011/12 season, there was a defeat against Udinese Calcio, since Atletico Madrid could celebrate eight wins in ten games and drew twice. In addition, the Spaniards fixed in 30 of 37 cases after a first leg victory progressing in a knockout duel.
