Soccer Betting Online Odds:
So far this season, Atletico Madrid has posted a 13-8-3 record in Spanish Primera Division play. Presently this yields them 47 points on the season, which ranks them as the 2nd best team in the league behind Barcelona. However, since they are but 7 points away from tying Barca, it’s clear that Atletico Madrid can bridge that gap with a lengthy win streak in league play. Similarly, Real Madrid is two points away from tying Atletico so there’s no question the club has the motivation needed to make that push. As for this UEFA league matchup, this matchup will be the first leg of this round.
Afterwards the two will meet in Juventus for the 2nd leg of this round. By and large, the soccer betting online odds are predicting a tossup here. This isn’t all that shocking however, given how tough these two sides are. All in all Juventus is getting some favoritism here, but it’s pretty small. This is undeniably surprising, since this contest will be held in Madrid.
Players to Watch: Antoine Griezmann (24 GP, 12 G, 7 A), Angel Correa (23 GP, 2 G, 2 A), and Rodri (21 GP, 2 G, 0 A).
The Italian team comes in sporting a 24-21-3 record in Italian Serie A play. At the present time this ranks them as the top dog in the league and gives them a comfy 13 point lead over their nearest threat. Undoubtedly the acquisition of Ronaldo has paid off bigly for this club. In addition to the millions of jerseys sold, the team is playing at another level. All things considered, the bookmakers think this level is high enough to slightly favor Juventus in Madrid. All in all these two don’t meet that often and are 1-1 in their last 2. Hopefully these matchups live up to the hype.
Players to Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo (24 GP, 19 G, 8 A), Mario Mandzukic (19 GP, 8 G, 5 A), and Paulo Dybala (21 GP, 3 G, 4 A).
