Juventus vs. Atletico Madrid: Where to Watch UEFA Champions League, TV Channel, Live Stream, Team News and Odds

Having already qualified for the round of 16 of the Champions League, Juventus could secure top spot in Group D with a win over Atletico Madrid on Tuesday afternoon.

The Bianconeri lead the Colchoneros by three points going into Matchday Five and a further three points would guarantee them top spot, while Atletico would qualify with a win.

On current form, the former seems a whole more probable than the latter. Juventus extended its winning streak to five games with a 3-1 win away against Atalanta on Saturday and has clinched a place in the round of 16 in the Champions League with two games to spare for the first time since 2008.

Atletico, meanwhile, has won just once in the last five games in all competitions, scoring more than one goal just once in the process. More worryingly for a team that has made defensive solidity its calling card during Diego Simeone's tenure, the Colchoneros have not kept a clean sheet in all competitions since defeating Athletic Bilbao 2-0 at the end of last month.

While Juventus has found its groove following a slow start under Maurizio Sarri, the former Chelsea manager has had his hands full off the field, amid rumors of growing discord between him and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese missed the game against Atalanta with a knee injury and remains a doubt for the game against Atletico.

Ronaldo was clearly incensed after being substituted in consecutive games against Lokomotiv Moscow and A.C. Milan earlier this month and made no attempt to hide his feelings.

Sarri, however, insisted there was no issue between him and the 34-year-old.

"If a player who has won so much is angry about being substituted, he still has a lot of motivation," the Juventus manager said in his press conference on Monday, as per La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Cristiano trained with his team-mates [on Sunday]. It seems that his condition is improving but we still have to evaluate. The positive thing is he was able to play throughout the training session."

Ronaldo's absence would be a major bonus for Atletico, who have repeatedly come undone against the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

The Portuguese has scored 25 times in 33 games against Atletico—more than against any other team apart from Sevilla—and his hat-trick last season knocked the Colchoneros out of the Champions League, as Juventus reversed a 2-0 first-leg deficit in the round of 16.

Ronaldo failed to register when the two sides drew 2-2 in Madrid on Matchday One, but Simeone is well aware of the danger posed by the former Real Madrid man.

"Cristiano is an extraordinary player, the number one in the world," the Argentine told reporters on Monday night.

"We have always suffered against him but [Tuesday] won't be a case of Atletico against Ronaldo. We are to play our game and what happened last season doesn't matter, as each match stands alone."

Despite Simeone's confidence, Atletico's record on the road against Juventus makes for worrying reading, with the Spaniards yet to score after two visits at the Juventus Stadium.

While last season's was Juventus' only win against Atletico in five games, the latter has won just three times in 10 previous encounters with Juventus in all competitions.
