Juventus was advance for a major command (the heenwedstrijd in Madrid ended in 2-0): at least two times to score against Atlético, a team who in his five previous matches, no tegengoal swallowed. But the belief in a penalty reversal was there. “Get ready to comeback”, there fell the past few days several times to read on the social media of Juve.
And that belief translated itself on the field. The home team picked off with a furious start. So it was an early goal of Chiellini rejected, after Ronaldo in an error Oblak committed. A big ‘phew’ at Atlético. But even before the half-hour was the 1-0 do on the board. Ronaldo (who else?) troefde Juanfran and headed home the opening goal past a stray Oblak.
