      Juventus vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

      Juventus can wrap up first place in their Champions League group on Tuesday. The Italian champions are on a great run, while they come into this one looking to punish an Atlético Madrid side winless in their previous five away trips.

      Juventus have won 14 and lost one of their last 23 Champions League group games on home soil (D8). The Old Lady are looking to win four consecutive home group games for the first time since October 2008. Their form this season has also been brilliant, with 12 wins in their last 13 matches. Having scored twice in all four group games this term, they look likely to achieve a result.

      History doesn’t seem to favour the visitors in this clash. Atlético Madrid have registered just three wins in their 10 previous encounters with Juventus in all competitions (W3 D2 L5), with four of those five defeats coming in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and the other arriving in the Champions League (0-3 in March 2019). They’re yet to really click in this competition following their summer rebuild, so this trip could be a struggle.

      Meanwhile, Juventus have shown real progression as a team, building a side who can share out the goals. That’s clearly a key part of Maurizio Sarri’s plan, as the Italian boss was reportedly unhappy with Chelsea’s reliance on Eden Hazard last term. His new side have had eight different scorers in this season’s Champions League – already twice as many as they had last season when they reached the quarter-final.

      Of course, the Italian champions still have an obvious leading man who tends to hurt Atlético. Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 25 goals versus Atlético Madrid in all competitions – only versus Sevilla (27) has he netted more. The Portuguese forward has bagged four hat-tricks against Atlético, with two of those arriving in the Champions League (March 2019 & May 2017).

      We expect Ronaldo to put the visitors to the sword, especially when accounting for their poor record on the road. Atlético Madrid have won just two of their last 11 away Champions League games (W2 D5 L4), following that defeat last time out against Bayer Leverkusen. Juventus are in scoring form and playing well, while their winning run has us backing them to claim a win on Tuesday.

      With Juve in fine scoring form – and given the last three meetings between these two have seen over 2.5 goals scored – we’re backing a 2-1 home win as our correct score prediction. That scoreline has landed in Juve’s last two games in the Champions League and in seven of their last 13 matches in all competitions.
