atletico-de-madrid vs juventus Tip Reason:

Atletico Madrid managed to get back to winning ways on Saturday with a tight 1-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano, which was a welcome return to form after losing their last 2 matches against Real Betis and Real Madrid. This kept the gap between themselves and Barcelona at 7 points, but on Wednesday their attention turns to the Champions League as they face off with Juventus. Diego Simeone will be more keen than ever to get his team to the final this season, with the final set to be played at their home of the Wanda Metropolitano in June. This drive to reach the final wasn’t enough to see them on the top spot in the group stages though, with Borussia Dortmund beating them to that accolade on goal difference, thanks to Atletico’s draw against Club Brugge in the final group match. Juventus also suffered an unlikely result in their last group game, losing 2-1 to Young Boys but managing to retain the top spot thanks to Manchester United’s failure against Valencia at the same time. Both sides will be hoping for a major improvement here. The Serie A giants will be placing a lot of their focus on this competition. They are already some 13 points ahead of their nearest challengers in the Serie A title race, and with Champions League specialist Cristiano Ronaldo on their books now, they will feel their chances of lifting the most prestigious trophy in club football have increased this term. Both of these sides have a perceived defensive outlook on the game, but that’s not actually as pronounced as most people think it is. Juventus, for example, have seen at least 3 goals scored in each of their last 6 competitive games and in 6 of their last 8 away games. Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid have been involved in high scoring matches in 4 of their last 7 home games. Even in the Champions League, both Atletico Madrid and Juventus saw 3 or more goals in half of their group games. When it comes to the knockout stages things get a little tighter, but Diego Simeone’s side have been involved in high scoring games in 5 of their last 11 knockout stage matches and Juventus have in 7 of their last 11, including each of their last 6 matches. This makes these odds for Over 2.5 Goals look incredibly good value, despite the defensive outlook that they seem to possess. We’re backing that, along with a tight 2-1 win for an Atletico Madrid side who won all 3 of their home games in the group stages. We’re also backing Antoine Griezmann to find the net for the hosts. The French striker has netted 8 goals in Atletico Madrid’s last 8 Champions League home games, failing to find the net in just 1 of these matches. All 4 of his European goals this season have come at the Wanda Metropolitano, so he looks a great choice for our anytime goalscorer predictions.
