Juventus vs Atletico Madrid, Champions League

Adjust Comment Print

After Atlético Madrid won the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie over Juventus, their manager Diego Simeone celebrated in controversial fashion.

Europa League holders Atletico have never won the Champions League, finishing runners-up in 2014 and 2016 to city rivals Real Madrid, Ronaldo's former club.

I just do my job and it was a magic night.

They made no serious attempt to get an away goal which could have put a different complexion on the tie and paid the price as they gave up their two-goal lead from the first leg.

"That is the type of guy and teams you face to achieve the next stages. It's a lesson we need to learn going into the return match". Elsewhere, Bernardo Silva made it the flawless night for Portuguese with a goal in Manchester City's 7-0 win over Schalke.

He has nearly played as many league minutes this season (2,239) - with 11 games remaining - as he did in 2017-18 for Real (2.297). We know it's a hard competition against the best teams in Europe but we will try to prove him wrong. Atletico Madrid are no match for Juventus when they are at their best and with the current stakes, I am expecting the Italian giants to produce their best.

"But in another way I like it because the teenagers have patience, desire and they are not scared".

After an incredible evening of football, Allegri refused to admit Juventus are now favourites for the competition. "I'll make do with what I have at my disposal", he said.

"These are two strong teams, one will go through and the other won't".

If he sits out a few more league games between now and the end of the season, the Italians may be the team to beat in Europe. "I do my job and I'm very happy, it was a magical evening". Hopefully it can be quicker than today.

The Portugal captain, who urged the Juventus home crowd to "think positive" during the build-up to the game, opened the scoring in the 27th minute, added a second just minutes after the re-start and completed his treble from the penalty spot.
