The game is a rematch of sorts, after Juventus eliminated Atlético from the UEFA Champions League with a remarkable comeback 3-2 aggregate victory at the Round of 16, as The Guardian recounted. But new Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri was not part of that sensational turnaround, and has been saddled with not only guiding Juve to a ninth straight scudeto, but with Champions League success as well. After spending a record sum to bring five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo to Turin, Juventus had to look on its quarterfinal Champions League elimination at the hands of Dutch underdogs Ajax as a major disappointment.
Diego Simeone’s Atléti have raced through the preseason, winning all five matches so far, per Sports Mole — all despite losing their French superstar Antoine Griezmann in a $130 million move to Spanish rivals Barcelona.
