So far this season, Juventus is 24-3-0 in Italian Serie A. This pegs them as the best team in the league by quite some distance. In fact, their 75 point tally on the season gives them an astounding 18 point lead over their nearest competition, the 2nd seeded Napoli. Nevertheless, Juventus still finds themselves at a severe disadvantage in this UEFA Champions League matchup. Not only are they down 2-0, they now have the misfortunate of having to bounce back in Madrid. It’s bad enough playing on the road but they’ll now need every bit of luck they can get.
At the end of the day, soccer betting online players will fully expect Atletico Madrid to come out in a defensive manner. And since Juventus wasn’t able to score on them in Madrid, what chance will they have in Italy? Nevertheless, the odds are still favoring Juventus here. This makes betting against them an extremely appealing affair.

At the present time, Atletico Madrid is 16-8-3 in Spanish Premiere League play. This nets them a total of 56 points on the season.

However, it’s looking like Atletico isn’t having a hard time dominating Juventus despite Ronaldo’s presences. Nevertheless, the soccer betting online odds here seem certain that Juventus will bounce back in Madrid. Ultimately this makes betting against them highly appealing.
