Following our 2-0 home win but with the knowledge that everything is still to play for, Atleti looks to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals in a demanding clash in Turin. Our team faces Juventus at 9 p.m. CET on Tuesday in the return leg of the competition's last 16.
If we qualify, it will be the ninth time in our history in which we place ourselves among Europe's top eight sides and the fifth time in the last six years. Nevertheless, to do so we will have to knock out one of the top European clubs, which has won the last seven Serie A titles.
However, our team holds a positive record against Italian sides. We haven't lost any of the last ten matches we've played against clubs from said country (eight wins, two draws). In fact, three of those ten games were against Juventus, who are yet to score a goal against us in the Champions League. Before the encounter from three weeks ago at the Wanda Metropolitano, our team had already faced the side from Turin twice in the 2014/15 edition of the competition. At the time, we earned a 1-0 win at the Vicente Calderón and drew 0-0 at the Juventus Stadium.
In fact, Juventus' record at their stadium is phenomenal, since they've only lost three of their last 36 European home games.
With capacity for over 41,000 fans, the Juventus Stadium is a magnificent venue in which we have the chance to continue writing Red & White history against a top team.
