It is a season of comebacks in the UEFA Champions League and Juventus will be looking to achieve just that when it hosts Atletico Madrid in the round of 16 encounters. The Spanish club has a 2-0 lead from the first leg which was labelled as an upset considering Juventus have been brilliant this season. The Bianconeri know Atletico Madrid will set themselves compact as they are known to do under Diego Simeone whose celebrations in their previous encounter drew a lot of wrath from the Juventus fans. The stage is set for a great game if the home side gets an early goal as it will test the Madrid club’s resolve throughout the 90 minutes.
Cristiano Ronaldo returns for Juventus after being given a day off in their league game against Udinese. The Portuguese striker had a quiet game in Spain but if ever there is one player that can turn around things for his club in Champions League, it is Ronaldo. Alex Sandro misses the game through suspension and his place in the starting eleven will be taken by Leonardo Spinazzola. Sami Khedira and Douglas Costa are missing from the matchday squad due to fitness related issues. Paulo Dybala could lose his place in the team to a more direct Federico Bernardeschi in what could be another sign of Dybala’s dwindling fortune at the Turin based club.
Diego Costa and Thomas Partey are suspended for Atletico Madrid while Lucas Hernandez and Filipe Luis are missing in action. Diego Godin has a good history when it comes to dueling with Cristiano Ronaldo and the Uruguayan will be relishing going against the legendary player once again. In attack, Alvaro Morata has been in good touch and can complement Antoine Giriezmann in the forward areas. Juventus and Atletico Madrid will cancel each other out in Turin with Diego Simeone’s men making it to the quarter-finals.
