Atletico Madrid vs Juventus (By: Miyagi)
Juve is in better shape, they picked themselves up after that disappointing loss/ elimination to Atalanta where they failed to score a single goal and they went on to score 3 goals in each of their next three games for the first time this season. They will win Serie A with ease for another season but their top priority is CL.
Atletico, on the other side, lost 2 of their last 3 games and they have not been in great shape in 2019. In their last home game, they lost to struggling rivals Real by 1-3, in what was the game that eliminated their actual LaLiga chances since they are now 7p behind Barca thus CL should be among the top priorities for Atletico as well.
Those teams used to have some of the most solid defenses and they still have solid ones but I can't see any of those teams failing to score today considering their recent form and defensive struggles against top teams, while the main reason imho is that Juve will in fact score today and Atletico will be forced to take risks and go after goals. Btts makes a lot of sense and the offered odds are huge! Though what I'm going for here is Mandzukic to score because he does score when it matters the most! He has scored only 9 goals this season but he did score the winning goals against Roma (1-0), Inter (1-0), Valencia (1-0), scored 2 goals against Napoli (3-1) and the first goal against Milan (2-0). This time he faces his former team and he knows a couple of things about their defense and the players he will face tonight. With Ronaldo and Dybala harassing Atletico's defense, Mandukic will find some space to act and will definitely get his chances in open plays or from set pieces with his length, strength, and aerial ability. Great odds and that's a risk I prefer instead of picking favorites and goals.
