This is the most high profile clash in the second round of UEFA Champions League games. Atletico de Madrid were in last season’s final, while Juventus are one of the historic giants of world football.
Atletico had a poor start to the group, losing in Greece to Olympiacos. However, they will be banking on their home form to get them into the next stage. The bookies have them as slight favorites to get a result. They are priced at 15/13 to get the win.
The odds on Juventus going to the Vicente Calderon and winning are 14/5, while the draw is priced at 13/5. This is one game where the draw might be a very good bet. These are two evenly matched sides, and neither will want to lose. Expect a 0-0 or 1-1 draw. Prices on a 1-1 draw are 5/1, while the 0-0 draw result is priced at 15/2.
Odds of 6/4 can be found on the game featuring less than 2.5 goals. For the pessimists, under 0.5 goals is priced at 15/2. The players most likely to score in this game are Mario Mandzukic, Carlos Tevez, Fernando Llorente and Antoine Greizmann. One of Atletico’s center backs, Miranda and Godin, may also be a good bet for the first goalscorer. The two defenders have come up with a lot of crucial goals for the Spanish side in recent months.
