Paratici: 'Juve excess is positive'

Juventus director Fabio Paratici insists having players who don’t want to leave represents “a positive rather than a negative. We’d be worried if the squad was too small.”

All-change at the Wanda Metropolitano

Both Juventus and Atletico Madrid have transformed since their Champions League clash six months ago, explains Emmet Gates.

What can change in six months? In football: pretty much everything. Seismic shifts can occur in players and clubs within a short period of time, let alone half a year.

It has indeed been half a year since Juventus, due to Cristiano Ronaldo’s sheer force of will power, overturned Atletico Madrid’s two-goal, first leg advantage to qualify for the quarter final of the Champions League. And it’s fair to say both clubs have changed substantially since then.

Godin: Conte like Simeone

Diego Godin believes Inter and Antonio Conte share “many things” with Diego Simeone and his title-winning Atletico Madrid side of 2013-14.

Godin was a key member of Simeone’s Atleti between 2010 and 2019, helping them win La Liga and two Europa Leagues, as well as reach two Champions League Finals.

The defender joined Inter over the summer, and he suggested Conte’s presence helped him make his mind up.

“I see many things in this Inter that remind me of the Atletico side who won La Liga in 2013-14,” he told DAZN.

Simeone: Sarri & I need time

Diego Simeone says he and Maurizio Sarri “need time” to rebuild Atletico Madrid and Juventus and is wary of facing “goal animal” Cristiano Ronaldo again.

The two sides are very different from their Round-of-16 tie last season as Juve replaced Max Allegri with the more modern Maurizio Sarri, while Simeone made several changes to his squad.

“Allegri was at Juve for five years, Sarri’s been there for two months. Adaptation takes time, and the same applies us,” Cholo said at a Press conference.

Probable line-ups: Atleti-Juve

Federico Bernardeschi is set to replace Douglas Costa in Juventus’ attack against Atletico Madrid this evening.

Costa faces several weeks out with a thigh injury, so Bernardeschi should slot straight into the right of Juve’s front three, alongside Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Elsewhere, it seems to be a case of as you were for Juve, with Danilo and Matthijs de Ligt continuing to deputise for Mattia De Sciglio and Giorgio Chiellini at the back.

Sarri: 'Juve and 10-12 teams'

Maurizio Sarri wants Juventus to “enjoy our football” against Atletico Madrid. “There are 10-12 Champions League teams with the same resources as us.”

It kicks off on Wednesday at the Wanda Metropolitano at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

“Miralem Pjanic is available, he trained regularly with the group today and we’ll see if he starts or not,” said the Coach in a Press conference.

Juve won the last eight Serie A titles in a row, but see the Champions League as something of an obsession.
