The challenge for Juventus in Leg 2 is a large one, as Diego Simeone's already normally very stingy and organized side is likely to put the full clamps on the Italian club's attack. After shutting out Juventus in Leg 1, a single Atletico away goal will force Juventus into having to score four times to advance. It's not an impossible defeat, as Borussia Dortmund proved by dispatching Atletico 4-0 at home during the group stage.

In its Champions League history, Juventus has fallen behind 0-2 in an away first leg twice before, and both times it failed to advance. In fact, in the UCL era, Juventus has never overcome a deficit of more than one goal in the knockout stage after losing the first leg on the road.

After being held in check during Leg 1, Cristiano Ronaldo must be a huge presence for Juventus and put his name on the scoresheet. After coming so close to Champions League glory in recent years, Juventus brought Ronaldo in to take it over the hump and to the trophy. The trophy seems far away with this mountain to climb in Leg 2, but don't count out the competition's all-time leading scorer and five-time champion.
