Atletico Madrid vs Juventus
Date: Wednesday, 18 September 2019
Kick-off at: 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atletico were stunned on the road earlier in the weekend when they locked horns with Real Sociedad who slotted two goals past them to come away with all three points. Despite making twelve attempts at goal, the hosts were able to hit the target just twice and were subsequently handed their first defeat in the new campaign.
However, Diego Simeone’s men have registered the win in each of their other three clashes and have netted five goals in the process as well.
Juventus are unbeaten back in the Serie A and will be making the trip to Madrid on the back of a frustrating stalemate against Fiorentina away from home. The visitors showed real conviction in their previous home match against Napoli while their opening outing saw them come out on top with a 1-0 scorecard against Parma.
Maurizio Sarri’s men have not exactly been at their best on the road and have just one win from their last six across multiple competitions. With Atletico sporting an impressive winning streak under their belt, Juventus will certainly have to put in the extra effort if they are to salvage at least a point from this one.

Atletico Madrid vs Juventus Prediction
The hosts have been on a stellar form in the comforts of their home where they are unbeaten in their last ten games. It is also worth mentioning that they have admitted defeat just once since the start of this year.
Furthermore, Atletico have come out on top in their last two games here and have scored four of their last five goals on home soil as well.
On the other hand, the away side had to share the spoils in their most recent outing. All of the clashes that the visitors lost in the previous edition of the Serie A were also in their trips on the road.
Considering that Juventus have not been able to get better of this foe in any of their previous two visits to this venue either, the guests will be able to keep hold them to a draw at the most as home advantage has been working its charm for Atletico really well.
Taking into account that the Simeone’s men have won each of their last two head to head meetings here with under 2.5 goals on the scoreboards, you can certainly rule out a high scoring clash unfolding in this one too.
