Atletico 2-0 Juventus: Gimenez and Godin keep CR7 calm AND score winning objectives

in juventus •  3 months ago

Atletico Madrid will take a 2-0 advantage to Juventus in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.


Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin struck late to win Atletico Madrid a 2-0 triumph in an engaging first leg of their Champions League last-16 conflict with Juventus.


Gimenez picked up the pieces at a 78th-minute corner to drill home the opener, before Diego Godin's strike five minutes after the fact deflected in off previous Real Madrid man Cristiano Ronaldo.


Alvaro Morata had before been denied an objective against his old club by VAR, while Juve's most obvious opportunity saw a Ronaldo free-kick tipped over by Jan Oblak in the initial 10 minutes.


The Serie A bosses looked on course to take a goalless draw back to Turin until Atleti, who will have Diego Costa and Thomas Partey suspended for the arrival trip, snared the triumph.
