The long awaiting European competition UEFA champions league is back again for the 2019/2020 season and one of the biggest match of the round one will witness A.Madrid welcoming the giant of Italian serie A Juventus at Wanda Metropolitano. After putting an end to their run in the competition last season, A.Madrid will be looking forward to revenge back while Juventus with the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Spain will be hoping to get the maximum point to sit at the top of the group. With the way both teams were priced by various bookmaker, it really shows that the match is going to be a balance game between both clubs with A.Madrid been priced at 2.49 odds while Juventus goes for 3.33 odds.
Both clubs have a good start in their respective leagues but Atletico were a little bit ahead in terms of their form in the last 6 matches. A.Madrid won 5 of their last 6 matches before their shocking defeat in the weekend to Real Sociedad but were still ahead of the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid in the league while Juventus only won 4 of their last games, playing one draw and losing one as well. The team were forced to a goalless draw in the weekend as well by Fiorentina and they are now third on the log table behind Inter Milan and Bologna.
In terms of team head to head, Atletico Madrid is ahead after both teams has played against each other on 5 different occasions, Juventus has only be able to manage 1 win while Atletico has won 3 of those matches and they have both settled for draw once. Both teams will now be naming a strong squad for the encounter but there may be a little change from the previous result between both clubs due to their inconsistency so far this season with Atletico winning 3 of their opening games in the La liga and losing 1 while Juventus has been able to win their first 2 games and sharing the point in their last game.
Possible Line Up
Atletico MadridAdan, Trippier, Savic, Gimenez, Lodi, Vitolo, Koke, Saul, Lemar, Felix, Costa
Szczesny, Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Sandro, Bernardeschi, Rabiot, Khedira, Matuidi, Ronaldo, Higuain
Adan may likely be in goal for Atletico after first choice goal keeper Oblak was forced out against Real Sociedad due to what seems to be an head injury and it is really going to be major blow for the team in the goal post. Diego Simeone will also miss players like Alvaro Morata and Thomas Partey due to knee and hamstring injury but the inclusion of both Trippier and Felix will also serve as a boost to the line up has both players since joining the club has been so spectacular for the club and has earn the manager trust in the starting eleven. The manager is aware of the Turin team and will be making a big plan to get his first win at home in the competition.
Juventus last season came from a 2-0 first leg defeat in the hand of Atletico to qualify for the next round of the competition when Cristiano Ronaldo stole the show with his hat trick goal and will again be the man to watch out for in that particular encounter. Although he has not really impress the new manager Sarri with goals in the league so far as he had only been able to manage 1 goal in 3 matches. Atletico will have to do every thing tomorrow to stop this man because it seems there is something special about him and the champions league which was the major reason why the Old Lady's signed him. Juventus also will be without the likes of Douglas Costa,Danilo and Miralem Pjanic due to injuries sustained in their last game to Fiorentina. Both Rabiot and Ramsey are still looking forward to get their first start for the team and may likely features in tomorrow game.
There is probability that this game may not witness a lot of goals but the chance of both team scoring is very high.
Atlectico 1 - 1 Juventus
