Vice President, Pavel Nedved reacts to today’s Champions League Last 16 draw

Juventus will play at the Wanda Metropolitano a few months in advance. The Bianconeri will face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League Last 16, in the stadium that will host the competition’s Final on 1 June. Vice President, Pavel Nedved was in attendance at today’s draw in Nyon and was asked for his thoughts on the tie.

“We didn’t have much luck – commented Nedved – Atlético are a difficult side to face, they are more of an “Italian” style team than European. They have a strong defence that plays well together, and they know how to play into the forwards with Griezmann and others. I foresee two very even matches, with few goals. We have drawn the strongest possible opponent, but there is no problem. Cristiano may be the man of the Champions League, but the whole team is strong and we can be confident in our ability to qualify for the quarter-finals.”
