Juventus against Atletico Madrid
Uphill battle. That’s how we can describe what expects Juventus against Atletico Madrid in a second leg from the 1/8-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday night. After losing the first game at the Wanda Metropolitano with 0-2, now the Bianconeri have to do some heroic things in order to progress in the competition. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this clash at the Allianz Stadium.
How we said, the first game in Madrid didn’t end very well for Juventus. Using their best weapon – the set pieces, Atletico scored twice between the 78th and the 83th minutes. The two goals were scored by the two central defenders – Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin. This was the worst possible thing which could have happened to the Old Lady.
Now Juventus are facing a tough task, because they must score goals against a team which is brilliant in defending. And in the same time, Juve must be careful not to concede, because even one away goal from Atletico will make their task almost impossible. And surely Atletico have the tools to score – not just by set pieces, but because of great offensive players like Diego Costa, Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata.
Juventus’ biggest hopes are linked with the club’s biggest star Cristiano Ronaldo, of course. The Portuguese striker is a five time winner in the competition, winning it three consecutive times in the last three season. Cristiano will be the biggest weapon of Juventus on Tuesday, so you can be sure that Atletico will pay a special attention to him.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Champions League 1/8-finals clash between Juventus and Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night. This shall be a pretty amazing fixture to watch. Atletico have the upper hand here, but don’t ever write Juventus off.
