In the Italian Serie A, Juventus is a sovereign leader with 75 points so far. The lead on pursuers Napoli is already 18 points behind “Old Lady”. In the previous Champions League season, the performances of Juventus were also sovereign. In the group stage, they qualified as the first team of Group H for the knockout stages. Massimiliano Allegri left Manchester United, Young Boys and Valencia behind them. In the six matches, the team have collected 12 points in four wins and two losses. The goal difference was 9:4 goals. Definitely missing in the round of 16 in the second leg against Atlético Madrid the suspended Alex Sandro and the injured Khedira. Behind the stakes of De Sciglio and Barzagli is still questionable. On the offensive, the hopes are on superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. He has scored 32 goals in 22 games against Atlético Madrid under the Real Madrid jersey. But also the qualities of Paulo Dybala are not to be underestimated.
Los Indios have a strong season in Spain's La Liga and are second in the table behind FC Barcelona. In the group stage of the Champions League, Diego Simeone qualified as a runner-up in Group A for the knockout stages. In the group, Los Indios met Borussia Dortmund, Club Bruges and AS Monaco. The team was able to collect 13 points. Four appearances were won, one game ended in a draw and one defeat. That goal difference was 9:6. For the round of 16-second leg against Juventus, the coach Diego Simeone has to give up the suspended Diego Costa and Thomas, as well as the injured Filipe Luis and Lucas.
Against each other, both sides have met three times so far and this is going to be their fourth competitive game on high-level performance. Moreover, “Old Lady” has a lead of two wins and one defeat against their rivals of Madrid.
Due to the fact that Juventus need goals to have a chance of reaching the quarter-finals, goals in the game are likely to fall. Juventus with Ronaldo and Dybala has two exceptional players in their own ranks. But also the offensive qualities of Atletico Madrid and superstar Antoine Griezmann are not to be underestimated. Therefore, the probability of more than 2.5 goals falling is relatively high.
