Juventus vs Atletico Madrid: Bianconeri look in better shape

Juventus vs Atletico Madrid: Bianconeri look in better shape

Kick-off: 2000, 26/11/2019

Stadium: Allianz Stadium

TV: BT Sport

Juventus are fancied to clinch top spot in Champions League Group D by seeing off main rivals Atletico Madrid at Allianz Stadium.

The Bianconeri looked the better team during a 2-2 draw when these sides met in Spain on Matchday 1 and crushed Los Colchoneros 3-0 in Turin last term.

Punters can get Evens for a home win here and that is our initial Juventus vs Atletico Madrid prediction.

A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds

Goals from Juan Cuadrado and Blaise Matuidi put Juve in control at Wanda Metropolitano in September, but Stefan Savic gave Atletico a lifeline before Hector Herrera levelled in stoppage time.

Maurizio Sarri’s men then made sure of victory when beating Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 at this venue, with Gonzalo Higuain, Federico Bernardeschi and Cristiano Ronaldo on target.

Juve admittedly laboured through 2-1 home and away wins over Lokomotiv Moscow, but the feeling is that they took the Russian outfit too lightly.

Sarri will have the Bianconeri fired up again for this high-profile contest and will be keen to make a statement of intent ahead of the knockout stages.

Looking at the Juventus vs Atletico Madrid odds, we like 17/2 for a 2-0 home victory.

A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds

Atletico were spurred into action by that late escape against Juve and put in a professional display when winning 2-0 at Lokomotiv Moscow, with much-vaunted youngster Joao Felix netting.

Alvaro Morata then grabbed the only goal of the game in a solid success versus Bayer Leverkusen in Spain to put Los Colchoneros in a comfortable position in this pool.

Diego Simeone’s side have stuttered a bit in La Liga this season, though, and a 2-1 loss away to Leverkusen last time out in this competition gives further cause for concern.

Atletico only claimed a late consolation strike through Morata after Bayer had been reduced to 10 men and it is easy to pick holes in that overall performance.

Simeone deserves plenty of credit for the rebuilding job he did over the summer, but losing the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Rodri, Lucas Hernandez and Diego Godin is harder to overcome at this level.

Los Colchoneros can still be relied upon to battle hard, but we’re adding 11/5 for a home win to nil to our Juventus vs Atletico Madrid betting tips.
