Our Prediction for Atletico Madrid vs Juventus

The match to end in an Atletico win.

Atletico splashed out the big bucks this summer in bringing Portuguese starlet Joao Felix from Benfica for around €125m to replace Antoine Griezmann who joined Barcelona. The Rojiblancos currently sit on top of La Liga and are in good form ahead of this one.

For Juventus, this is the first big test for new Coach Maurizio Sarri on the biggest stage, the former Napoli and Chelsea boss was brought in to guide the Old Lady to lifting the Champions League while playing an attractive style of football.
