Atletico Madrid 7/5 to beat Juventus in Wednesday’s Champions League contest

Competition: Spanish Segunda

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 7/6 @ Bet 365

Looking to open this year’s Champions League campaign with a much-needed three points, Atletico Madrid will welcome Juventus to the Spanish capital on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona showing some signs of a struggle at the start of the new La Liga campaign, Atletico Madrid have their sights set on reclaiming the Spanish title. While they might be coming off the back of a shock defeat away at Real Sociedad over the weekend, Diego Simeone will be glad to make a return to the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday. Opening the new campaign with back-to-back victories in the Spanish capital, Los Colchoneros have also won their last five European matches on home soil, including a 2-0 victory over Juventus back in February.

As for the visitors, putting in an extremely lackluster display in their 0-0 draw away at a struggling Fiorentina over the weekend, many around Turin have quickly begun to question Maurizio Sarri’s appointment over the summer. Undoubtedly the Chelsea boss will know that his first job must be on improving on the Italian champions’ form in Europe’s top competition. Crashing out of last year’s tournament thanks to a 2-1 loss at home to Ajax, The Old Lady have won just one of their last five Champions League appearances, including defeats against Atletico and Young Boys.
