Atletico Madrid News and Form
This is the seventh successive season in the Champions League for Atletico Madrid. They made it back to the competition after a second-place finish in La Liga last season. From their nine previous campaigns in the group stage of the Champions League, Atletico Madrid have made it to the knockout stages seven times. They are always such a good home side and are on a nine-match winning streak on home soil. In that run of nine wins, they conceded just one goal. So even though they are facing a tough opponent here, there is plenty of reason to back them.
Los Colchoneros are on a six-match winning streak on home soil against Italian teams as well, conceding just one goal in that particular sequence (scoring 14). They met Juventus in the round of sixteen last season and the loss in Turin to them saw a ten-match undefeated run of form against Italian teams snapped (W8 D2) home and away. That came after finishing second in their group behind Borussia Dortmund. Atletico Madrid have suffered three losses in their last 22 European fixtures (W18 D3). There were big changes at the club over the summer, but they still look a threat.
Atletico Madrid v Juventus Head to Head
Atletico are W2 D1 L1 in the head to head with Juventus
Juventus have lost their two previous trips to Atletico without scoring
Their most recent meeting was in the round of sixteen last season
Juventus won 3-2 on aggregate, overturning a 2-0 first-leg defeat in Spain
Juventus News and Form
Juventus will be hoping for a better trip to the Metropolitano this time around. They lost 2-0 in the first leg of their round of sixteen tie against Ateltioc, but a hat trick from Cristiano Ronaldo back in Turin saw the Italian club turn the tie on its head. Last season in the Champions League Juventus won their group ahead of Man Utd, Valencia and Young Boys. After getting past Atletico in the round of sixteen they then fell to Ajax in the quarter-finals.
There has been a bit of a dip in their away form though. Juventus have failed to win any of their last three European road games, defeats against Young Boys and Atletico and a draw at Ajax. While the Italians have won four of their last five games against Spanish opposition, they have struggled to win in Spain. The Old Lady have taken only three wins in their last ten visits to La Liga opposition. Their overall away record against Spanish teams is W6 D6 L17. As well as knocking out Atletico last season, Juventus won both group stage games against Valencia.
