Atletico Madrid vs Juventus (By: Kt17)
Yesterdays pick did not go home, but the value bet in Kimmich still managed to do well. Overall it was a bad start for me on the site, so I'm looking to bounce back with this pick!
After 1 years of absence from the Champions League Atletico Madrid are now back after having won the Europe League last year. They are eager to get a good result in the first leg against Juventus who has look scarily good and effective the whole season.
Atletico Madrid have only one notable absentee in Hernandez, but have several players coming back from injuries such as Diego Costa who will be deemed fit to start before the match.
This bet will be on Ronaldo to score as he has been in very good goalscoring form lately with 6 goals in 8 matches in 2019. For the whole season he has 19 goals in the Serie A, but only 1 goal in the Champions League, but where he historically with Real Madrid has scored 15, 16, 12 and 17 only in the Champions League in the last 4 seasons. We all know that he is a clutch and big-time player who relishes the big matches, so I see this match perfect for him to score a goal.
Atleticos back 4 have looked solid, but Luis and Gimenez are one booking from being suspended in the return leg, so I think they will be cautiuos in their duels leaving plenty of space and opportunities for Ronaldo and whoever will be flanking him to create goal-scoring chances. As of late, Atletico has in 2019 also conceded 3 goals to Real Madrid, 1 to Betis (which also was a loss) and 4 to Girona (over 2 matches), so their defence is definitely regressing.
Juventus are looking to create a good result here, but this could also end in a draw, so I'm going with the goalscorer pick.
