Juventus attacker Cristiano Ronaldo says the Club is ready to experience a special night as they look to welcome Athletico Madrid to Turin for the return leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash on Tuesday.
The Spanish side secured a late 2-0 victory at the Wanda Metropolitano two weeks ago thanks to goals from Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez.
The Old ladies has a huge mountain to climb in the return leg if they are to remain in the competition they are desperate to win and Ronaldo believes they are ready for the task.
“The team is confident of playing a great game and I am too,” Ronaldo added. “We are ready to experience a special night, both on the field and in the stands.
“Everyone knows that they are a strong team, they defend very well, they don’t take a lot of risks and they play on the counter-attack, but we are ready, and we will do everything we can to beat them.
“The fine details will make the difference, and we want to win and qualify for the quarter-finals.
“Football is like this, we didn’t expect to lose the first leg 2-0, but anything can happen, and we want to give great response in our home, in front of our fans.”
Whatever happens in the clash against Atletico, Juventus will take on Genoa on Sunday as they look to maintain their 18-point gap cushion at the top of Serie A.
