Apart from that, Atletico is not an opponent that cannot be beaten. At the first meeting at Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid, Juventus drew 2-2 against Diego Simeone’s men. Had a 2-0 lead through Juan Cuadrado and Blaise Matuidi, but Atletico retaliated through Stefan Savic and Hector Herrera.
However, Sarri did not want to look down on his guests. “Atletico is a difficult team to deal with, but we cannot worry about what they will do. We focus on how important the first position is in this group. Diego Simeone has done a very good job in Madrid and he deserves applause, “Sarri said as quoted by the official UEFA website.
However, Juventus have a slight problem with injuries suffered by several core players. Defender Giorgio Chiellini is missing long-term, while Federico Bernardeschi, Douglas Costa and Adrien Rabiot are also unavailable due to injury. While Alex Sandro and defender Matthijs de Ligt are also doubtful.
Sarri was delighted with the return of Cristiano Ronaldo. The former Chelsea coach also denied his harmonious relationship with the Portuguese star.
“I have a good relationship with Cristiano (Ronaldo). If a player who has won many trophies is very angry about being replaced, it means he still has a lot of motivation, and this is something positive.”
“Yesterday, he (Ronaldo) trained with his team-mates. It seems that his condition is improving but we still have to evaluate between today and tomorrow.”
While Atletico coach Diego Simeone will be without Diego Costa, Jose Gimenez, and Stefan Savic. Simeone will be joined by striker Alvaro Morata who has scored six goals in his last seven matches for Atleti.
In total Morata has seven goals, almost a third of his 22 teams in all competitions and in the past month, that dependency has increased. Atletico has scored 10 goals, of which Morata has claimed six.
“There are some who are looking for people to blame and some who want to work,” Simeone said. “Only the second will continue with me.”
