Juventus v Atletico Madrid Tips: Can Ronaldo inspire the comeback?

| 12.03.2019

Juventus have a huge task on their hands tonight. They need to overturn a two-goal deficit to beat Atletico Madrid and reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

Atletico arguably have the best defence in Europe. But Manchester United showed that anything is possible last week. And this is the sort of game that Cristiano Ronaldo was brought in for.

Can they pull off a miracle? We’ve got all the key odds and info right here…

Match Odds

The onus is on Juve here. Atletico just need to hold on to what they have. With that in mind, the Serie A champions are 4/6 to win on the night. But they’re back at 3/1 to qualify, with a 3-0 win that would get the job done out at 12/1.

Atletico are a chunky 9/2 to leave Turin with a win. However, they’re a much healthier 2/9 to be in the hat for the quarter-finals.

We’ve got the draw at 5/2. And with both sides so solid at the back, goals may be at a premium. Under 2.5 Goals is a 4/6 shot.

Talking Tactics

Atletico will line up with two rock-solid banks of four. But they’ll pose a real threat on the break with Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata in attack.

It’ll be up to Juve to break them down. Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Bentancur will look to gain control of midfield and spray the ball around.

Ahead of them, Paulo Dybala could hold the key. If he can find space in front of the Atletico backline, he could supply Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic.

Goalscorer Odds

That man Ronaldo is 5/2 to open the scoring. He’s bagged 22 goals in 30 previous appearances against Atleti.

Mandzukic is 2/1 to net against his former side, with Dybala also at 2/1.

Griezmann is 14/5 to get a vital away goal. And after seeing a goal disallowed in the first leg, it’s 3/1 that Morata gets on the scoresheet.

Atletico caused real problems from set pieces in that previous meeting, with Diego Godin 11/1 to score here.
