Juan Cuadrado goal Vs Atletico Madrid: Watch Colombian star smashing ball past Atletico Madrid defence to score a goal in the Champions League.
Juventus visited Atletico Madrid to play their first match of the Champions League group stage rounds. The game was very much anticipated by the fans, and it surely stood up to the expectations.
Although, the game was slow in the beginning but once the score was opened by Juventus, the match did not remain the same, as both the sides played a 2-2 draw against each other.
As said before, the first goal of the game lightened the match, and it was worth it, as Juan Cuadrado scored an incredible goal with his weaker foot to give his side initial 1-0 lead.
Gonzalo Higuain passed the ball to Cuadrado across the 18-yard-box, then the Colombian forward cuts in from the left, confuses Atletico Madrid defence with his stepover and unleashes a left-footed rocket into the top corner of the net.

Thus, giving the much required break to Juventus in the initial minutes of the second half. Later, Juventus scored another goal as Blaise Matuidi headed the goal inside the net from a cross by Alex Sandro in the 65th minute.
It seemed as if everything was over for Atletico Madrid, but Los Rojniblancos made a comeback after goals by Stefan Savic and Hector Herrera to level the score by the end of the match.
On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo, who has exploited Atletico Madrid throughout his time in Spain but failed to repeat this for Juventus, and the Portuguese International also went back to the dressing room without a goal.
The 34-year-old star did make a near move to the goal, but in the end, he shot an off-target and missed his chance to be on the score sheet.
