Tournament: Champions League. 1/8 final.
In frames of the 1/8 final of the Champions League Atl. Madrid will host on Wanda Metropolitano Juventus Turin.
The game of the Diego Simeone’s team can’t be considered epic. Even in matches against not the strongest rivals, the team prefers academic style and if they are the first to score they don’t try to finish the rival but they attack paying attention on the gates.
Because of this they from time to time lose points in the Championship of Spain in the matches against Girona or Leganes. In the Champions League this club was Brugge though it didn’t prevent the Mattress Makers from leaving the group.
Juventus is in some extent similar to its rivals. The only difference is that the team of Massimiliano Allegri is more confident in attack but it rarely scores more than two goals for one match, preferring not to let the rival move forward (after it opens the score) and attacks using its gaming class.
Atl. Madrid rarely loses at home and as a rule it plays more confidently with grandees than with underdogs and mid level teams but don’t wait for a bright attacking match from any of the teams.
This match will define the strategy of the return leg and we doubt that the Mattress Makers will want to play in attack on Allianz Stadium.
This means that they will do everything in order not to miss any goal as well as Juventus – it will chose not the score any goal than to miss in order to gain a possibility to solve the question on home arena.
