From Last season’s champions league finish to this decade, the step out on the road leads to The Atatürk Olympic Stadium, Istanbul. Atletico Madrid start their new European campaign as they ended the last with a match up against Juventus.
Joao Felix started off with a wonderful run with players all around him to take a really clever attempt, striking the ball almost underneath to force Szczesny to be really smart down to his left-hand side leading to a corner. The preseason last month against the same side sent him in this game with a positive mind and caused a few more problems for their rivals.
Cristiano Ronaldo had a long-range strike, the first attempt on goal in the 22nd minute but found Jan Oblak, the Slovenian international vigilant and up on his feet.
The pass from Higuain across the 18-yard box into the feet of Cuadrado lead to the first goal with the Columbian producing a sensational strike to the top left corner, well, the celebration was pretty good too!
Juventus were full of belief after Blaise Matuidi parred in the second goal after a break lead by Cristiano Ronaldo.
This was short-lived when Savic got one back for the Spanish side to give them some hope.
The two center halves, Savic and gimenez were the main threat after a set-piece into the 6-yard box.
Just before closing time hector herreira. The Atletico’s number 8 rose away from Dybala to head in at the back post right in the last minute to make 2-2.
