Two late goals gifted Atlético Madrid a 2-0 Round of 16 first-leg win, and Juventus now have it all to play for if they are to avoid falling to a third successive Champions League exit at the hands of Spanish opposition.
Recent home form gives Juventus hope, as they have scored at least three goals in their last four competitive home games, whilst defensively too, six clean sheets in their last ten here raises hopes of a shutout.
They have lost only once in 17 home matches this season, that defeat, however, came in the CL.
Since the start of 2015/16, Juventus have lost only two of their 18 CL home games. Worryingly enough, both those losses have come in their last five.
Atlético will be a tough nut to crack, and have five wins ‘to nil’ from their last five competitive games.
Their 4-0 loss to Dortmund on matchday two this CL season remains only the second time since October 2014 that they have conceded more than two goals in this tournament.
The visitors have won only once in eight CL away games, but are unbeaten in three tournament road trips against Italian sides, without conceding a single goal.
Players to watch: Cristiano Ronaldo (JUV) has 22 goals and eight assists against Atlético in 30 competitive matches.
Antoine Griezmann (ATL) is on his longest scoring drought of the season (four matches), but still has ten goals in his last 15 competitive club games.
