Atletico Madrid will meet Cristiano Ronaldo once again
Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone may well rue the 0-0 draw away to Club Brugge on the final matchday of the group stage, an outcome which has prompted the Spanish team being drawn against Cristiano Ronaldo’sJuventus.
Ronaldo, formerly of Real Madrid, has caused a lot of agony over the years for Los Colchoneros’ supporters, especially in the Champions League, and he has proceeded with his goalscoring exploits in Italy.
It was always expected that Atletico would face a difficult draw as they could have come up against any semblance of Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Manchester City, as well as Juventus.
Drawing Porto would have been the dream scenario for Simeone, but instead Atletico must now begin preparing for the Italian giants as the first leg takes place at the Wanda Metropolitano, the setting of the current year’s conclusive.
