Two bitter rivals meet again. Atletico and Juve are opening their Champions League campaign this Tuesday one against another. The hosts still remember the elimination suffered in the Round of 16 of the last year’s UCL edition, when they dropped a 2-0 lead from Madrid, allowing Cristiano Ronaldo to score a hat-trick. The Portuguese superstar single-handedly swept Simeone’s crew, inflicting them one of the most stressful defeats in the last few years.
Atletico was looking perfect up until this weekend once they lost in Sociedad. Real defeated the Mattress Makers with 2-0, which was their first defeat since the preseason began. Regarding La Liga, Atletico had three straight wins, vs. Getafe, Leganes, and Eibar. Five of the last 10 games ended with Oblak not having to take the ball out of his net, but that is something normal when Atletico plays. They are one of the best defensive sides in the world. Three of those four La Liga games saw under 2.5 scores and both teams not to score, and that too is nothing new. Many believed that without Griezmann upfront, the Rojoblancos might have problems, but that isn’t the case. The arrival of young Joao Felix perfectly filled in the gap created when the French striker left, and Atletico now looks even more creative in the attack.
Juventus is going all or nothing this season when talking about the Champions League. The undisputed rulers of the Italian football are not into winning Serie A titles anymore, as they crave to reach the UCL trophy. They have one of the best teams in the world, and with all the additions in this summer transfer window, the Old Lady emerged as one of the top 3 contenders for dethroning Liverpool. After beating Parma on the road, and winning spectacularly against Napoli at home, Sari’s guys played without goals in Florence against Fiorentina. Over the past four events, we’ve seen under 1.5 goals on three occasions. Same as Atletico, Juventus has a tremendous define, which has been their trademark over the last few decades.

Sime Vrsaljko isn’t available for this match. Alvaro Morata is still questionable, same as Thomas.
Meanwhile, Juve will appear without Giorgio Chiellini and Mattia De Sciglio which will be a huge blow for Sarri. Also, Mattia Perin won’t be in the protocol, but that isn’t of such great importance. Douglas Costa, Miralem Pjanic and Gonzalo Higuain are doubtful, and we can say that the Italians have huge problems with before this clash.
After reading the previous part of the text, there is a high probability that you’ve already guessed our tips. The first one will be under 2.5 goals. Since this is an opening match and neither side would like to lose, be sure that neither Simeone nor Sarri are going to be especially keen to attack. And if you add that we have two very defensive-minded sides here, the chances to see three or more goals are very, very low. Betway gives us 8/15 odds for our first pick.
The second one would be both teams not to score. We strongly believe that once any team nets, they will go back and wait for chances to hit from a counterattack. We’ve seen both Atletico and Juventus doing that million of times. Odds at bet365 are 3/4.
