Both teams have experienced various changes since their last meeting in the 16th round in the competition last season, but Atletico Madrid play quite confidently on their ground, which gives them an advantage.

Atletico Madrid and Juventus Predictions
During the summer transfer window, Juventus have added M. Ligt, C. Romero, L. Pellegrini, and other well-known players to the team, so the chances are that the club will show better results this season compared to the previous one.

Now, they are on a three-game winless run on the road. Seeing Atletico’s track-record, their much more likely to win.
Atletico Madrid have shown good defensive skills by preventing their opponents from scoring at their ground in the competition; however, Juventus will likely try hard to show great results.
