Atletico Madrid (HOME)
As they continue to grind out with positive results, it would be fair to say that Atletico have been impressive lately. In fact, they are unbeaten in 12 matches and won their eight European games at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. There only defeat came against Borussia Dortmund as they were thumped 4-0 in the group stages of this season’s Champions League, seeing them finish second in Group A to advance to the last-16 of the competition. Meanwhile, the Spanish giants are Barcelona’s closest challengers in La Liga with a total of 47 points, leaving them second in the table standings.

Juventus continues to dominate Italian football, but there is no question that the Champions League is the trophy that the Old Lady really wants. They reached the final in both the 2014-15 and 2016-17 seasons, however they lost to Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively. This will be Juve’s 10th Champions League last-16 tie, winning six and losing three of the previous nine. They seem well-placed to challenge for the trophy this season as they have acquired Cristiano Ronaldo. Massimiliano Allegri’s side will enter this match off the back of a 3-0 win over Frosinone in Serie A and sit 13 points clear of second-placed Napoli for possibly another Serie A crown.
