LIVE: Atletico Madrid vs Juventus

5′ Atletico are unbeaten in the Champions League against Italian opposition under manager Simeone. In those six games, they have only conceded one goal – by Kaka in a 4-1 win against AC Milan in March 2014.

4′ Thomas curls the corner straight out of play before it swings back in. Hugely disappointing!

3′ Poor from Costa, who has space to run into and options either side. Rather than playing what was a pretty simple pass to Griezmann on his right, though, the ball is overhit and Atletico are fortunate to get a corner from it.

2′ A little over 60 seconds in and already there has been a flashpoint. Atletico’s players claim that Matuidi caught the boot of Griezmann when attempting to win a chest-high ball, but the referee does not feel it is worthy of a penalty.

1′ Juventus, two-time winners of the European Cup, get us underway at the Wanda Metropolitano! 

The two teams are now out on the field at the Wanda Metropolitano and we are moments away from kick-off.

Atletico have met Juventus seven times before in European competition, though five of those matches came in the Fairs Cup in the 1960s. The sides’ only previous Champions League encounters came in the 2014-15 group stage, with just the one goal being scored across the two matches – an Arda Turan winner for Atleti at their former Vicente Calderon home.

Juventus make three changes on the back of their 3-0 win over Frosinone five days ago. Sami Khedira misses out entirely today after tests discovered an irregular heartbeat, with his place taken by Pjanic, while Matuidi takes over from Can in the second midfield alteration. Alex Sandro is also welcomed back into the starting line-up, replacing the benched Cancelo. There is a start for star man Ronaldo up top, despite an injury scare on the eve of the match.

Atletico show four changes from their victory at Rayo Vallecano last time out, including a return for Costa alongside Griezmann in the frontline. That is a big call from Simeone as the Spain striker, who replaces the benched Morata, only made his return from a two-month spell on the sidelines in that victory against Rayo. Elsewhere, Juanfran is preferred to Arias at right-back and there are returns for Thomas and Koke in midfield, replacing Correa and Vitolo.

Juventus subs: Mattia Perin, Federico Bernardeschi, Martin Caceres, Joao Cancelo, Leonardo Spinazzola, Daniele Rugani, Emre Can.

JUVENTUS XI (4-3-3): Wojciech Szczesny; Mattia De Sciglio, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini (c), Alex Sandro; Rodrigo Bentancur, Miralem Pjanic, Blaise Matuidi; Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Atletico subs: Stefan Savic, Alvaro Morata, Angel Correa, Santiago Arias, Antonio Adan, Thomas Lemar, Nikola Kalinic.

ATLETICO XI (4-4-2): Jan Oblak; Juanfran, Jose Gimenez, Diego Godin (c); Filipe Luis; Saul Niguez, Thomas Partey, Rodrigo, Koke; Antonine Griezmann, Diego Costa.

Juventus have finished runners-up twice in the last five years and, with Cristiano Ronaldo now in their ranks, will be looking to add a third European Cup to their collection. Massimiliano Allegri’s side are on course to maintain their stranglehold on the domestic game in Italy as they are 13 points clear at the top of Serie A, though they did crash out of the Coppa Italia to Atalanta last month. Juve have won four of their last five away games in the knockout stages of the Champions League and last suffered defeat in their last-16 second leg against Bayern Munich in March 2016, so they will fancy their chances of progression.

Atletico have lost momentum domestically speaking after tasting defeat in two of their last three league outings, but they returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday and are back up to second place in LaLiga. Focus now turns to the European stage, with Diego Simeone’s men booking their place in this first knockout round thanks to four wins and a draw from their six Group A outings. Atleti are unbeaten in their last 12 home games in the Champions League knockout stages and have conceded only one goal in their last 10 matches at home in the knockout phase.
