Atletico Madrid vs Juventus should be one of the most interesting UEFA Champions League match, which will be held at Wanda Metropolitano, in Madrid. These teams are well known to each other since they played back in March of this year. Already in the 1st round of the Champions League, we will witness a great game and emotions. Read our thoughts about this thrilling Atletico Madrid vs Juventus UEFA CL match, here below.

These teams met 3 times already during the 2019th year. Twice they met in Champions League and once they played friendly. In Champions League they played at 1/8 Finals, where Atl. Madrid won first game at home with 2:0 result, however, lost in Turin, with 3:0 with Cristiano Ronaldo hattrick. During the friendly game, which was held in Stockholm, Atletico won with 2:1 result, finishing summer preparation. Earlier in 2014, these teams met also in CL in the group stage, where Atletico won a home game and played draw at Allianz Stadium. Most interesting, that hosts have never conceded a goal in 4 last Champions League games.

Atletico Madrid

Diego Simeone already caching for 9th year. Since he started, Atletico Madrid becomes champions of Spain, twice were Finalist in Champions League and 2 become champions of Europa League. During these years team never was below the 3rd place in Primeira Division, except very first 2011/12 season. He has grown a very successful, dangerous and talented team. This year, especially when both Barcelona and Real Madrid faced difficulties, there is a great chance to prove themselves in Spain and in the Champions League.

Los Colchoneros had a successful season preparation and start of the La Liga. In 3 first league games, they won all conceding only to Eibar. While Barcelona failed to win the first round, Real Madrid played 2 draws and other teams lost at least 2 points, Atletico stood very confidently on the top until they met Real Sociedad. Very unexpectedly Real Sociedad played very strong football and in second had scored 2 goals in 3 minutes. Atletico played more aggressively, had fewer chances and ball possession. Sociedad was very accurate, they had more dangerous attacks and, even without very known players, they showed very skillful football. So now, in Spain, Sevilla stands at the 1st place, and Atletico second with 1 point difference.

Unfortunately, Sime Vrsaljko, Alvaro Morata and Thomas will miss next match.

Juventus

Juventus has been playing very weird lately. Of course, only 3 games have been completed so far, but we notice that in each they played problematically. Against Parma, they scored only one goal at 21st minute and in general had only 4 shots on goal. With such a talented and strong attack, this is a very weak result. They controlled the possession, however, Parma’s defence almost doesn’t let create dangerous moments.

Against Napoli, they were in front with 3 goals, and looked like Juventus will smash them with the even bigger result. However, they lost concentration, started playing more relaxed and conceded 2 fast goals just after the Cristiano’s. K. Manolas and H. Lazano, two newcomers of the club gave a big chance to the squad to fight for the points against the most constant rival. At 81st minute, Napoli created a miracle and scored an equalizer with Di Lorenzo goal. But in additional time, with a terrible mistake, Koulibaly sent the ball straight to the net of Napoli goal and gave 3 points to Juve.

Third Juventus game finished without scoring goals against Fiorentina in Florence. Here also, Juventus finished the game almost without created chances. They had only 5 shot with 4 shots on goal, while Fiorentina 15 goal attempts and 8 on goal. Juventus had 0 corner kicks, while Purples had 10, and in general playing with super trio Cristiano, Higuain, Costa they failed to show their game at all. We see big troubles playing away games, so the match against Atletico should be the proof of these words.

Unfortunately, Juventus will play without several main squad leaders. Giorgio Chiellini (expected return on March 2020), Mattia Perin, Marko Pjaca and Mattia De Sciglio will miss next game due to injuries. Moreover, Chiellini, Mario Mandzukic and Emre Can were left out of the Champions League squad for this season.
