Juventus have it all to do in the second leg of their last-16 tie against Atletico Madrid, with the Italian giants facing the possibility of an early Champions League exit.

The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo was meant to inspire Juve to finally win the trophy that has eluded them since 1986, but the Bianconeri must turn around a 2-0 reverse in Turin.

Late goals from Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin saw Diego Simeone’s Atleti side win convincingly in the Spanish capital, and Massimiliano Allegri now needs a near-miracle in Italy to turn this tie around.
