Diego Forlan backs Atletico Madrid against Juventus

Former Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan has ‘no doubts’ his former club can defeat Juventus in their Champions League clash.

The Uruguayan won the Europa League title with Los Rojiblancos in 2010 across a four-year spell at the club, netting 96 goals in 196 appearances for the club.

“It’ll be a tough game for both sides,” Forlan told Tuttojuve.com.

“They are two very similar teams, equipped with strong squads, who never give up.

“Today the difference is certainly represented by Cristiano Ronaldo, but Atletico Madrid also have great players like Griezmann, Morata, Diego Costa and their No 13, Jan Oblak.

“This is why I have no doubt in regarding Atletico as favourites for the victory.”
