Do you think Juventus can go on to win the tournament?

Despite going into the tie 2-0 down, many were reluctant to write the Italian giants off due to Ronaldo's incredible history in the competition. It was a good outing for Juventus as the match allowed key players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala to rest.

Central defenders Jose Maria Gimenez and Diego Godin scored late to give Atletico the win, after the hosts had a penalty kick taken away and a goal disallowed by VAR. They will have to bring the fight to Atletico in the second leg but, unfortunately, that's precisely Atletico's bag, even without the suspended Diego Costa.

"We know that we are facing a great team".

Simeone has led Atletico to the final twice, and this year they could do it again. However, following a VAR review it was declared that Ronaldo had fouled Jan Oblak in the build-up.
