After last week’s heroic performances from Ajax and Manchester United, can Juventus follow the trend and come back from a 2-goal deficit?
We look forward to an intriguing tie in the second leg of the Champions League round 16 between Juventus and Atletico Madrid. The second leg takes place at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday 12th March. Both teams have enjoyed a relatively successful period in the Champions League with one of the two teams appearing in four of the last five finals. However, neither team has lifted the trophy in that time.
We take a look at the markets to find where the value lies and which teams will be progressing to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
After an excellent 2-0 display in Spain, Atletico Madrid are firm favourites to qualify for the quarter-finals at odds of 1/4 with Bet365. Nevertheless, they still have a job to do in Turin to stamp their place in the next round. A major concern for Atletico Madrid is that they have only won once in their last eight away matches in the Champions League. This record evidently makes them outsiders to win the match at 9/2 with a draw priced at 11/4.
Juventus have an impressive home record this season, but most of their notable results have come domestically. Juventus have only won two of their previous six home Champions League fixtures, which will give Atletico Madrid some hope of progressing. Yet, despite losing two of their last four home games in the competition, the bookmakers price the home team as favourites at 3/4.

Both teams to score in 90 minutes @ 23/20 – BET NOW
Atletico Madrid are strong favourites to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals after comfortably beating Juventus in the first leg at Wanda Metropolitano.
Diego Simeone’s men will have realised that an away goal will almost certainly secure the tie, so they may look to start positively and get the job done early. While the hosts have no choice but to attack to try and claw back the two-goal deficit.
Considering both teams’ expected game plans, 23/20 for both teams to score in 90 minutes looks a mouth-watering prospect.
Total goals under 2.5 in 90 minutes @ 3/4 – BET NOW
Both Juventus and Atletico Madrid are renowned for their defensive stability, meaning it could easily become a cautious and low-scoring match. As a result, under 2.5 goals looks to be very well priced.
Atletico have seen under 2.5 goals feature in seven of their last eight matches across all competitions and have only seen more than 2.5 goals in a mtch three times away from all home all season. Juventus might have plenty of firepower in Ronaldo and Dybala, but Atletico's backline is a brickwall.
