Atlético v Juventus background

The UEFA Champions League round of 16 brings together two clubs who have enjoyed considerable recent success in the competition without lifting the trophy as Atlético Madrid welcome Juventus to the Estadio Metropolitano, venue for this season’s final.

• Both sides have reached the final twice in the past five seasons, Atlético losing to neighbours Real Madrid in 2014 and 2016 whereas Juve were beaten by Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid two years later.

• Group A runners-up Atlético will be looking to continue their winning run at home to Italian clubs as they take on a Juventus side whose last two campaigns in the competition have ended in defeat by Spanish opposition.

Cristiano Ronaldo's group stage highlights

Previous meetings
• The sides were paired together in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League group stage, when an Arda Turan goal gave Atlético a 1-0 win at their former home, the Vicente Calderón. Current Juve striker Mario Mandžukić was in the Atlético side, as were Diego Godín, Juanfran, Koke, Saúl Ñíguez and substitute Antoine Griezmann with Jan Oblak and José María Giménez unused replacements; Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci played for Juventus.

• The second game in Turin ended goalless, a result that meant Atlético finished first in the section and Juve second, though it was the Italian side that went on to reach that season’s final.

Form guide
• Diego Simeone’s side are in the round of 16 for the fifth time in six seasons; in 2017/18 they failed to progress from their UEFA Champions League group, finishing third, but went on to win the UEFA Europa League.

• The Spanish side have won four of their five round of 16 ties, losing only the first – on away goals against Porto in 2008/09. Most recently, they beat Bayer Leverkusen 4-2 on aggregate in the 2016/17 competition (4-2 away, 0-0 home).

• Atlético’s record in two-legged knockout ties against Italian clubs is W4 L4. Their most recent contest was a 5-1 aggregate victory against AC Milan (1-0 away, 4-1 home) at this stage of the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League.

• Atlético are unbeaten in 12 home UEFA Champions League knockout matches (W7 D5), since a 3-2 loss to Ajax in the 1996/97 quarter-final second leg that sealed a 4-3 aggregate defeat.

• Los Colchoneros have won their last five home games against Italian visitors, most recently a 2-0 defeat of Roma on matchday five of last season’s UEFA Champions League. Atlético have won seven of their last nine games with Serie A sides, home and away (D2), since a 2-0 loss at Udinese in the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League group stage.

• Atlético have won their last eight home European matches – the 3-1 defeat of Club Brugge on matchday two was the only one in which they conceded a goal. A 2-1 loss to Chelsea on matchday two last season is Atlético’s only defeat in the last 21 European games in their own stadium (W17 D3).

• This season Atlético also beat Borussia Dortmund and Monaco, both 2-0, but finished second behind Dortmund in Group A. They went down 4-0 in Germany on matchday three, their joint heaviest European defeat and only their second loss in their last 20 matches in continental competition (W13 D5).

• Simeone’s charges have already lifted European silverware this season, beating Real Madrid 4-2 in August’s UEFA Super Cup in Tallinn – making them the first team to win the competition on their first three appearances.

• The Rojiblancos have reached two UEFA Champions League and three UEFA Europa League finals in the last nine seasons.

• This is Juventus’s tenth UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie (W6 L3); they have won the last two, defeating Tottenham 12 months ago (2-2 home, 2-1 away).

• Juve’s record in two-legged ties against Spanish clubs is W9 L7; their 2017/18 UEFA Champions League campaign ended in a dramatic quarter-final defeat by Real Madrid (0-3 home, 3-1 away).

• Juventus won their first two away games in this season’s competition, at Valencia (2-0) and Manchester United (1-0) but were beaten 2-1 at Young Boys on matchday six – although they still finished first in Group H.

• That defeat in Switzerland ended Juve’s five-match winning run in UEFA Champions League away matches.

• Away (2-0) and home (1-0) wins against Valencia in this season’s group stage made it three wins in a row against Spanish sides for Juve. The Bianconeri have, however, won on only three of their last nine trips to Spain – albeit both of the last two. Their overall away record against Liga opposition is W6 D6 L16.

• Winners in 1985 and 1996, Juventus have played in nine European Cup finals – losing a record seven, including all of their last five.

Liverpool v Bayern background

One of the most successful sides in European Cup history will bow out of this season’s competition as Liverpool and Bayern München meet in of the last 16’s standout ties.

• The teams each have five titles to their name – Liverpool’s last triumph coming in 2005 and Bayern’s in 2013 – but have both suffered recent disappointment. The English club were beaten by Real Madrid in last season’s final, while Bayern have lost in the semi-finals in four of the last five years, including last season’s defeat by Madrid.

• This season Bayern held off Ajax to finish first in Group E while Liverpool needed a matchday six win against Napoli to claim second place behind Paris Saint-Germain in Group C.

Previous meetings
• Surprisingly given the two clubs’ rich European histories, this is only their sixth match – and their first in almost two decades. The sides last met in the 2001 UEFA Super Cup at Monaco’s Stade Louis II, Liverpool winning 3-2.

Liverpool's 2001 Super Cup win against Bayern

• The Reds also came out on top against Bayern in the semi-finals of their victorious 1980/81 European Cup campaign. After a goalless first leg at Anfield an 83rd-minute strike from Ray Kennedy took Liverpool into the final on away goals despite Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s reply for Bayern five minutes later.

• Bayern were victorious in the sides’ first contests, in the 1971/72 European Cup Winners’ Cup semi-finals. After another scoreless game on Merseyside – meaning both Liverpool-Bayern matches at Anfield have failed to produce a goal – the German club won 3-1 in the Munich return, Gerd Müller scoring twice and Uli Hoeness once.

Form guide
• In 2017/18, Liverpool reached the round of 16 for the first time in nine years, beating Porto 5-0 away in the first leg and also on aggregate. That left them with the overall record of W5 L1 at this stage; the sole defeat coming to Benfica as holders in 2005/06.

• The Reds are unbeaten in their last six round of 16 matches (W5 D1), conceding no goals, since a 1-0 loss at home to Barcelona in the 2006/07 second leg; they won that tie on away goals having triumphed 2-1 in Spain.

• Liverpool’s last fixtures against Bundesliga opponents brought away (2-1) and home (4-2) victories against Hoffenheim in last season’s play-offs.

Mohamed Salah's group stage highlights

• That made the Merseyside club’s record in two-legged ties against German clubs W14 L2; they have won the last four, since a 4-3 aggregate defeat against Bayer Leverkusen in the 2001/02 quarter-finals.

• Liverpool have won their last six home games against German clubs, since that 1981 stalemate against Bayern – indeed, the English side have won 14 of their 17 home games with German visitors, the exceptions the two draws with Bayern and a 0-0 result against Köln in the first such encounter, in March 1965.

• The Reds have also been victorious in their last three games with Bundesliga sides, home and away, and are unbeaten in eight since that 2002 loss at Leverkusen (W6 D2) – their only reverse in their past 16 fixtures (W10 D5).

• Liverpool have won their last five home UEFA Champions League fixtures, beating Paris Saint-Germain (3-2), Crvena zvezda (4-0) and, decisively, Napoli (1-0) in this season’s group stage. They are unbeaten in 19 European home matches (W14 D5), since a 3-0 loss to Real Madrid on 22 October 2014.

• The Reds have lost five of their last eight European matches, all those defeats coming outside England.

• Bayern’s round of 16 record is W11 L3. Having won the last seven, they have not lost at this stage since an away-goals defeat at the hands of FC Internazionale Milano in 2010/11.

• For the second year in a row Bayern’s campaign was ended by Real Madrid in 2017/18, via a 4-3 aggregate semi-final defeat. That meant all five of Bayern’s UEFA Champions League campaigns since lifting the trophy in 2013 have been ended by Spanish clubs.

• Niko Kovač’s side won 2-0 at both Benfica and AEK Athens in this season’s group stage before a 3-3 matchday six draw at Ajax. Robert Lewandowski scored in all three games, four goals in total, and registered eight overall, making him the competition’s top scorer.

• Bayern are unbeaten in their last eight European away games (W6 D2), scoring at least two goals in every one; the match at Benfica was their first clean sheet on their UEFA Champions League travels in 15 matches. They followed it with another at AEK before shipping three goals at Ajax.
