Juventus star, Paulo Dybala has predicted Juventus vs Atletico Madrid game as a ‘hard’ as his side prepares to lock horns with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 first-leg at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
According to the forward,Diego Simeone’s men are very strong defensively and can punish Juventus if care is not taken.
“Atletico? We know about their style of play, how Simeone closes the lines and how hard it will be but to win this competition you have to beat anyone in front of you, there are no easy games. They are very strong defensively and have quality in the attack. If we are not careful in the defence, they can punish us.
“From when I’m at Juve, the team has shown its full potential. The year before my arrival it reached the Champions League final and once again in 2017, while last year we lost in the quarter-finals against Real Madrid.
”Given what has happened in the last few years, we still have a goal to reach. When you lose a final, you always want another chance to fix things – football always gives you a chance to get revenge and I think we have this chance.
”It is not easy to get to the end. The team is focusing on it a lot and this can also be an obstacle. But at the moment we are very relaxed and we want to return to the final. We have to do things calmly, step by step. We know it will not be easy but we can do it as a united team,” Dybala told UEFA’s official website.
Match kick-off by 9pm tonight
