In the previous game in Turin over 5 years ago Mario Mandzukic was wearing Atleti colors and will now face his ex-teammates. Back then Alvaro Morata was sitting on Juventus bench, but he will wear the Atletico jersey on Tuesday night.

Team news – Juventus vs. Atletico Madrid
Juve: It’s a plan and simple — Juve has to score two goals to have a chance, but if Atletico scores just one, the Italian side will need four goals. Atletico doesn’t give up a lot of goals, so the most realistic option is trying to win 2-0 and force extra time. Dealing with the pressure of Atleti will be key, and this team didn’t do that in the first leg. Their European dream is on the line.
Atleti: Diego Simeone’s side enters this one calm and confident. The first leg result was near perfect, and he’ll be telling his team to go on the counter and give him one goal. Just one should be enough for the Spanish side to move on. Simeone has led Atletico to the final twice, and this year they could do it again.
Juventus: Szczesny, Cancelo, Bonucci, Chiellini, De Sciglio, Bentancur, Pjanic, Matuidi; Dybala; Mandzukic, Ronaldo
Atletico Madrid: Oblak, Arias, Savic, Gimenez, Juanfran, Correa, R.Hernandez, Saul, Koke, Griezmann, Morata
