Juventus Prediction

Juventus find themselves in deep trouble ahead of their 2nd leg of this round of 16 tie in the Champions League following their 2-0 defeat away at Atletico Madrid in the 1st leg in Madrid, and although the hosts boast some of the best attacking talents around, and arguably in the world in the case of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Old Lady face a tough 90 minutes on Tuesday night.

The hosts must now pull out all the stops if they’re to salvage this tie and make it through to the last eight of the competition, but this may well be easier said than done as Juventus have lost three of their last four matches overall in the Champions League.

Although the hosts recorded a 1-0 home win over Valencia, they’ve also fallen foul of the likes of Manchester United (at home), along with back-to-back defeats on their travels as well. Juventus now need to score 3 goals if they’re to progress through to the quarter-finals and hope they don’t leave too many gaps going forward so Atletico Madrid don’t hit them on the counter, as an away goal here would be disastrous.

 

Key-Facts – Juventus v Atletico Madrid

  • Juventus have lost 3 of their last 4 matches in the Champions League
  • Juventus have beaten the -1 asian line in just 2 of their last 10 home ties
  • Atletico Madrid have lost just 2 of their last 10 away matches by more than 1 goal

 

Atletico Madrid Prediction

Atletico Madrid seemingly have one foot already in the quarter-finals of the Champions League following their triumphant 2-0 win in the 1st leg at their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, and they now have to just avoid a heavy defeat in Turin to take their place in the last eight of the competition.

The visitors bring an impressive recent set of results with them into this vital clash with five wins on the trot in all competitions which include wins against Juventus in the 1st leg, along with four La Liga victories over Rayo Vallecano, Villarreal, Real Sociedad and Leganes.

Turning now to Atletico Madrid’s results away from home in the Champions League and you’ll find that the visitors have actually won just two of their last 10 away matches at this level; but more important is the fact that they’ve lost just two matches on the road by more than a 1 goal deficit (Real Madrid 3-0 in 2017 and Borussia Dortmund last season).

Betting Tips Verdict

The onus is on Juventus to attack from the off, while Atletico Madrid will likely soak up the pressure. The visitors also possess some dangerous attacking players though such as Griezmann who could be the fly in the ointment for Juventus here.
