Video: Juventus Winger Juan Cuadrado Scores an Absolute Belter Against Atletico Madrid

Juventus midfielder Juan Cuadrado stole the show in his side’s opening match in this season’s Champions League by scoring an absolute belter against Atletico Madrid.

The Italian champions eliminated Diego Simeone’s men in the last-16 round last season but were beaten 2-0 in the first-leg in the Spanish capital, and needed a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick in the return match to ensure progression to the last-eight.

However, tonight was an altogether different story with Juve dominating from the off, and when the opening goal eventually arrived it was definitely worth waiting for.

Colombian international Cuadrado received a clever pass from his team-mate Gonzalo Higuain and he proceeded to smash the ball past a helpless Jan Oblak:

Two Chelsea flops combining for the best strike of match-day one?

Who’d have thought it, eh?

How far do you think Juventus will go in this season’s competition, and could they be eventual winner next May?
