Juventus vs Atletico Madrid Match Preview
Juventus look set for yet another Scudetto over in Italy this season. La Vecchia Signora are sitting pretty at the top of the Serie A table as you would expect, racking up seven consecutive titles in the last seven years to take their overall tally to 34, by far the mot in Italy. It seems a matter of time until they confirm their eighth consecutive league trophy this season too as they currently sit 18 points clear at the top of the tree with just 11 matches remaining.
In the Champions League, Massimiliano Allegri will no doubt have been hoping for the summer arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo to take them to another level but it hasn’t quite happened that way so far. Having lost twice in the group stages against Manchester United and Young Boys, they went down 2-0 in the first leg of this Round of 16 clash and as a result will need to win this second leg at odds of 3/4 with Betfair to stand any chance of progressing through.
Atletico Madrid are the closest challengers to Barcelona in the La Liga table at the moment but time is running out for los Colchoneros to chase down Blaugrana at the top of the tree. As things stand, Diego Simeone’s men sit seven points behind the league leaders but with just 11 games remaining, they will need the Catalonian side to slip up dramatically to stand any chance of catching them up, even if they can continue their fine recent form.
Los Rojiblancos have been in terrific fettle of late, coming into this match on the back of five consecutive wins in all competitions in which they haven’t conceded a goal. Argentinian boss Simeone has garnered a well-earned reputation for being one of the best defensive coaches in world football so after goals from defenders Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin gave them a first leg lead in this tie, can they win away from home too at odds of 79/17 with Unibet.
Atletico’s defence are in their best form at the moment on the back and come into the second leg here on the back of five consecutive clean sheets. Unsurprisingly given that they’re in such fine fettle defensively, under 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Atleti’s last eight matches. The onus will be on Juventus to find the goals to drag them back into the game but we’re backing another low-scoring fixture here at odds of 8/11 with Bet365.
With the pressure on Juventus, we can see Atletico’s impressive defence getting the job done here. They’re the experts in keeping things tight when they need to and odds of 8/1 on a frustrating night for the hosts and a goalless draw seem like good value to us with Paddy Power.
