Juventus was included in Group D with Atletico Madrid , Bayer Leverkusen and Lokomotiv Moscow . The bianconeri are the favorites for the final success in this group. His antagonist is Atletico. The two teams have already met last year with Juve which eliminated Atletico Madrid in the Champions League knockout rounds.
