Our Prediction:

Juventus will win

Juventus – Atletico Madrid Match Prediction | 26-11-2019 15:00

High stake bookmakers are backing the visitors to win the match only slightly. The visiting team played only three matches during the offseason and they won only one of them, against Inter. The team from Torino is in major problems at the moment, since they failed to win more than once over the course of 8 matches in all competitions. However, I believe that it is much better to back over 2.5 goals in the upcoming game. Tottenham managed to beat them, while K-League Stars held them to a draw.

So many players had been on international duty, so its not a shock to see that it happened. After getting two wins in a row to open up the Italian domestic season, one of them being at home to Napoli in a wacky 4-3 victory, they dropped two points to Fiorentina as they returned to action on Saturday. Juventus wont top the Serie A table ahead of this meeting, but they will be very close to it. You can count on them being better here, youd have to think.

ATLETI vs JUV Betting Tips and Odds

Diego Simeone is likely to field the best possible side against Juve and seeing that los Rojiblancos want this win more than the Bianconeri, we are tempted to put our money on the La Liga side. As always, a man to watch in Maurizio Sarris team will be Cristiano Ronaldo. The Serie A champions have collected only two points from possible six at the 2019 International Champions Cup, meaning that they head into the match with the lack of confidence.

However, seeing that Atletico Madrid have turned their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano into a real fortress, we are not tempted to put our money on the visitors. The Bianconeri, on the other hand, did well to sign Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer transfer window and they hope that the Portuguese superstar is going to help them clinch the Champions League trophy. Los Rojiblancos are tough to beat at home, but it has to be noted that they were beaten by their local rivals Real Madrid in their last home game in the Spanish top flight. There will be fireworks when Atletico Madrid and Juventus face each other at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in the first leg of the Champions League last 16. Taking everything into account, a close encounter is on the cards and we believe that the two sides are going to play out a goalless draw in the first leg of the Champions League last 16.

Expert Verdict: Neither side got the best return to action following the international break at the weekend, with each of them, one of the top title contenders in their countries, dropped points. Both teams will surely step up and play better, but when the dust settles it should be similar to what we saw last season: Atletico on top at home. With that said, this is a mouth watering tie that should grip until the very end. They are just so good at the Wanda Metropolitano, and they will come up clutch.

Juve were stripped two domestic trophies during the Calciopoli scandal, but despite being relegated to Serie B, the club quickly brought glory days back to Turin. The Bianconeri used to play their home games at Stadio delle Alpi, but nowadays they welcome their rivals at Juventus Stadium. The likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Zinedine Zidane, Michel Platini, Lilian Thuram, Filippo Inzaghi, Pavel Nedved and David Trezeguet all played for Juventus, whilst legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has yet to retire.

Highlighted Player (Antoine Griezmann):

Atletico Madrid is going into this match with a single idea in mind, and that is to get revenge from Juventus for stopping them in the previous Champions League season from making it to the quarter-finals. In their 5 most recent games they scored 7 and allowed 5 goals, which averages to 2.4. Since they are clashing with a really strong opponent, I dont believe that well see many goals this time around either. Los Colchoneros, as they are often called in Spain are doing quite well lately. Before their last match in which they were defeated by Real Sociedad, they were on an incredible nine-game winning streak. Also, they are looking forward to grabbing the points early on to take control of the group.

Juve lost at home to a then-struggling United and then also lost to the last-place team in the group, Young Boys. Atleti, meanwhile, finished second to Borussia Dortmund in Group A, but only on a tiebreaker as both finished with 13 points and a 4-1-1 record. Juventus won Group H with a 4-0-2 record, beating out Manchester United to top the group but that wasn't without a couple surprise results.

A big ask for such a young (albeit capable) player. Thats what should be expected here, too. It will be skill and speed as well. Atleti have changed their style, so it wont just be brute force hell be dealing with. When the lights are on bright, its always Cristiano Ronaldo that steps up the plate and comes up huge. At the back, Matthijs de Ligt will be worth a watch. It was he that took all of Atletis balls and threw them back at them back earlier this year, and it will likely be him that has to do so here if Juve are to overcome them again.

The reigning champions of the Italian Serie A will for sure fight ferociously, but defeating their upcoming opponent wont be easy at all. Juventus, commonly known as the Old Lady back in Italy is doing quite good as well. And just like their upcoming hosts, they scored 7 and conceded 5 goals in those previous matches, so that signals us that its highly unlikely to expect over 2.5 this time. Out of their last 5 matches across all competitions, they won 3, drew 1 and lost 1.

Atletico Madrid Latest Team News

Both of these sides have tasted European success of late, but neither of them have been able to kick the door down fully. They each had a big chance last season, again, but neither of them took it. They then lost to Ajax, and have since strengthened their side greatly. Atletico had Juve right where they wanted them, but the crowd in Turin turned the tie and Ronaldo took full advantage to get one over on his old rivals.
