Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri would welcome a Champions League last-16 tie with Tottenham so that he can face off against "extraordinary" Jose Mourinho.

The Italian champions eased into the knockout stages with five wins and a draw in their Group D campaign, culminating in a 2-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday.

Tottenham suffered a 3-1 loss at Bayern Munich in their final Group B match, meanwhile, but they were already assured of second place behind the German giants in Group B.

Juve and Tottenham could meet in the next round, with Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund, Lyon and Real Madrid other possible opponents for Juventus.

Mourinho claimed teams will be eager to avoid Tottenham, but Sarri is open to a reunion with the Portuguese, whom he previously faced off against during his time in the Premier League.

"I have had the honour of getting to know [Mourinho] and I hold him in high regard," former Chelsea boss Sarri said at his post-match news conference.

"He is an extraordinary person that is very different from the perception that the outside world has of him.

"It was a real pleasure to get to know him. Playing against him isn't easy, but seeing him again would be great."

Juventus are joined in Monday's draw by fellow group winners Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Liverpool, Barcelona, RB Leipzig and Valencia.

Asked which side he considers favourites to go all the way and lift the famous trophy, Sarri replied: "Manchester City."

Juventus return to Serie A action on Sunday with a home match against Udinese.

Andy Robertson insists Liverpool have gained a reputation in Europe that makes them a team to avoid in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The Reds remain on course to defend their continental crown after beating Salzburg 2-0 on Tuesday to secure a place in Monday's last-16 draw in Nyon.

Jurgen Klopp's side beat domestic rivals Tottenham 2-0 in last season's final, a year on from losing to Real Madrid in the showpiece fixture.

Having finished top of Group E, Liverpool can face one of Real Madrid, Atalanta, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund or Lyon in the next round.

Robertson believes each of those sides would rather dodge a trip to Anfield as the reigning champions aim to reach the final for a third year running.

"That is the atmosphere we have created in the last two years - a team which has been to the final twice and we are respected in this tournament," Robertson told reporters, quoted by several British newspapers.

"Maybe the first season when we went to the final, I don't think we were really respected until after we went to Porto and washed them away.

"We did not get the respect we deserved. Now, we know we are respected in Europe. No one will want us but everyone who gets into the last 16 will fancy themselves.

"It is the toughest tournament. The teams you come up against are outstanding and will fancy themselves. Everyone is confident. And when you get to the last 16 you get to the nitty-gritty."

Liverpool lead the way in the Premier League and have knocked the likes of Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Barcelona out of the Champions League in the past two seasons.

But Robertson, who has featured 24 times in UEFA's flagship competition, concedes Liverpool now have a target on their back as reigning champions.

"Last year and the year before we have been excellent in the knockout stages and we have controlled games, but we know that now we are the champions everyone wants to beat us," he said.

"That is what we have to deal with and hopefully we can deal with it well. But there are about 40 games between now and the last 16 so we will worry about that when the time comes.

"We need to keep proving why people don't want to play against us. We know it will be tough, but we look forward to the challenge as we want to go far in this tournament again and we have made a big step."

Maurizio Sarri wants to see signs of a "change of mentality" from Juventus against Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday.

The Bianconeri's place in the Champions League knockout stages is already clinched heading into matchday six, with Sarri's team guaranteed top spot in Group D.

Juve have won four and drawn one in Europe so far, continuing Sarri's impressive personal run in continental competition after he led Chelsea to Europa League success last season.

But his side are second in Serie A and lost for the first time this season against Lazio at the weekend, meaning Sarri sees room for improvement even in a fixture they need not win.

"We know that we have to work to do better, but we are calm," said Sarri. 

"We need a spark, but that can be many things. We've got to move the ball quickly and not defend too deep after we've taken the lead. It's important that we always try to control the game.

"These are all things that represent a change of mentality at Juventus, so they do not come automatically. We've seen them in moments, for example the first half in Rome [against Lazio]."

Sarri wants his side to demonstrate a strong mentality in their performance, even with their passage already secured as Leverkusen still hope to overhaul Atletico Madrid for second spot. 

"The first time I was contacted by the Juventus hierarchy, I asked how come they only managed three points in the final Serie A games of the season," he said. 

"I said it would be a bad sign of their mentality if they justified it with the fact the Scudetto had already been won.

"We have the privilege and the honour of playing in the Champions League. I expect a strong and focused performance, because there are always objectives. I ask for a performance, then the result can come or not."

Mats Hummels has called for Borussia Dortmund to find their voice and become a big noise again after admitting the team can be "a bit quiet".

It is coming up to 23 years since Dortmund won their only Champions League title, and almost seven years since they last reached the final of Europe's top club competition.

Domestically, they have been left standing by Bayern Munich's dominance of the Bundesliga, with Dortmund's back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012 followed by seven in a row by the Bavarians.

Hummels swapped Bayern for Dortmund last June, joining for a second spell with the club, and the former BVB club captain believes that, as a senior figure in Lucien Favre's squad, he can play a motivating role.

"I try to fill the role with life and take responsibility. Especially on the pitch where I verbally drive, order and cheer," he said.

"It is already an issue in our team that sometimes we are a bit quiet. That is why it is very important that the leaders stand up."

Dortmund headed into the final round of Champions League group games with their last-16 hopes in the balance, targeting a home victory over Slavia Prague on Tuesday and hoping for Barcelona to deny Inter three points at San Siro.

Centre-back Hummels, who turns 31 next week, knew Dortmund could not afford a sleepy performance if they were to achieve their ambitions.

He told DAZN: "Parts of us sometimes have to be woken up a bit in the game. The 4-0 against Leverkusen [in September] sounds clear, but in fact we had big problems in the first 20 minutes.

"We sometimes go into the games and see how it works. Sometimes we turn the switch over only when there is no other way.

"If we get that under control, we can be a top team. But that is not a thing you change in one or two days. We have to work it out for ourselves. When you look at the training sessions, there has been a development in recent weeks: mentality, attitude and sharpness."

Dortmund sit third in the Bundesliga, having slipped off the pace in November when thumped 4-0 by Bayern and held 3-3 by Paderborn, yet a 5-0 weekend win over Fortuna Dusseldorf, achieved without the suspended Hummels, showed what potential they have.

"We just look at our performances - and they were very changeable in the current season. But nothing is lost yet," Hummels said.

"In the Bundesliga, no team really marches ahead. This is mainly because the level - and I see that contrary to what is often written - clearly increases. The small teams no longer travel to Dortmund or Munich to be shot down. They have become much stronger tactically and individually and have a clear plan. That's why the well-known teams lose many more points."

Sadio Mane believes winning the Club World Cup could give Liverpool the adrenaline surge they might need to drive home their Premier League title push.

Jurgen Klopp's side will have Flamengo among their trophy rivals in Qatar next month and have complicated their build-up to the FIFA tournament with Wednesday's 1-1 Champions League draw against Napoli.

A win would have made sure of a last-16 place with a game to spare, allowing manager Klopp to possibly rest some stars for the Group E finale at Salzburg.

Instead, Liverpool may need a point to be sure of qualification and a win to seal top spot, making the trip to Austria one with high stakes.

And with holding midfielder Fabinho nursing an ankle injury that could keep him sidelined for a significant period, Liverpool are a key man down.

It remains to be seen whether the Brazil international can return by the time the Club World Cup comes around, but Mane is in no doubt about the potential significance of that competition.

"To win games and win trophies motivates players all the time," the forward said. "Hopefully we're going to win it and give us high energy for us to go again until the end of the season."

Front-runners Liverpool have begun their Premier League campaign with a staggering 12 wins and one draw from their opening 13 fixtures, and they face Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield on Saturday.

A hectic December awaits, with matches and travel that should test their resources to the limit. Klopp will need to shuffle his line-ups, yet Mane is confident the Reds can overcome the obstacles in their way to make it a successful month.

He said: "We are Liverpool, we have a big squad. We have many players who can play. It's part of football and we have to deal with it. We know it won’t be easy.

"Tiredness is in the head. If the coach needs us, we'll play to help the team."

Mane dismissed any suggestion he threw himself to the ground in an effort to win Liverpool a first-half penalty against Napoli, after he went down when surrounded by defenders.

The appeals for a spot-kick were waved away, much to the hosts' frustrations.

"I think it was a penalty, sure. I wasn't diving like usual!" Mane said, with a chuckle, having been at the centre of subsequently retracted diving accusations from Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola at the start of this month.

Georginio Wijnaldum described the ankle injury sustained by Fabinho against Napoli as "a big blow' for Liverpool but vowed to be the perfect stand-in in a more defensive-midfield role.

The Netherlands international came off the bench to replace Fabinho in Wednesday's Champions League contest at Anfield in an indication he may fill the void despite having played a more advanced role for Jurgen Klopp's side this term.

But Wijnaldum appreciates the likely loss of Fabinho for a number of games, as Liverpool await clarity on the severity of the injury, comes as a serious setback to the reigning European champions and Premier League leaders.

"It's a big blow for the whole team, of course, and for him as a player," he said. 

"It's a situation you've got to deal with. Over the years we've had a few blows with injury and we just have to show that we can deal with the situation."

Fabinho has a crucial holding role to play at the hub of Liverpool's team, and it perhaps goes against Wijnaldum's attacking instincts to occupy that position.

However, he has done so studiously in the past, and when asked about the challenge of taking over from Fabinho, there was a twinkle in the eye of the Dutchman.

"I played there last season. Do you think I'm ready?" he told reporters at Anfield. "We just have to show that it doesn't affect us."

The exit of Fabinho after 18 minutes was swiftly followed by Dries Mertens firing Napoli in front with a terrific finish across goal from a tight angle, his strike so impressive it was hard to fault Alisson.

Dejan Lovren headed an equaliser midway through the second half, but it was not Liverpool's night. Klopp's charges were oddly pedestrian at times, and the 1-1 draw means they head to Salzburg for their final Champions League Group E match on December 10 as leaders, but still probably needing a point to make sure of a last-16 place.

Wijnaldum acknowledged it was a "frustrating" position, given Liverpool knew a win over Napoli would have made sure of their qualification and taken any edge off the Salzburg game.

"Of course you want it to finish early, but this is the situation. It comes to the last game," Wijnaldum said. "There's nothing we can change about it anymore so what we have to do is to deal with this situation and try to get a good result."

There was at least some relief in the Liverpool camp when linchpin defender Virgil van Dijk was able to shake off a blow to the ribs, which came from Mertens in the lead-up to Napoli's goal.

The sight of Van Dijk receiving treatment on the pitch caused anxiety in the stands and on the pitch too.

"Everyone was worried," Wijnaldum said. "I think he is [fine] because he finished the game. With Fabinho it's difficult to say because he went off."

Carlo Ancelotti insisted Napoli are "still alive" after their courageous Champions League performance at Anfield earned praise from the club's demanding owner Aurelio De Laurentiis.

Napoli secured a hard-earned 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the Champions League, taking the lead through Dries Mertens after 21 minutes before conceding a 65th-minute Dejan Lovren leveller on Wednesday.

Amid internal problems at Napoli, head coach Ancelotti told reporters: "I have spoken to the president. He's really pleased. He's thanked the players for their efforts."

De Laurentiis has looked set to impose fines on Napoli's players who deserted a recent training retreat amid a run of disappointing form, and it remains to be seen whether that punishment will proceed.

"We'll have to see over the next couple of days. The president wants to speak with all of the players, so I believe this is a positive sign, absolutely, on everyone's behalf," Ancelotti said.

He added: "I think we're beginning to improve and leave those problems behind.

"We've shown a lot of commitment, hard work and character and personality. I think I've seen that the team's definitely still alive. We could still do better of course, in Serie A in particular."

Napoli sit seventh in Serie A but look like progressing to the last 16 of the Champions League, seeking to avoid defeat in their final Group E game against Genk next month to be sure.

Genk were thrashed 4-1 by Salzburg midweek, and Napoli should have more than enough to fend off the Belgian club back in Naples.

Against Liverpool, Napoli looked defensively sturdy for long stretches and particularly in the first half gave the Champions League holders' backline plenty to do.

Ancelotti said: "I knew we were going to play well, I was convinced against a team like Liverpool. You know you're going to suffer against a team like that, but we know we can create them problems as well.

"So I was certain we'd play well, but just because you play a good game against a team like Liverpool it doesn't mean you get a good result.

"The game wasn't particularly aesthetically pleasing but we were clear-minded, we were solid and our aim wasn't to put in a fantastic performance - our aim was to get through to the next round and we need another point to do that of course."

The veteran coach knows there is light and day between Napoli's performance in Europe and in Serie A.

"It's difficult to put your finger on it; it's difficult to find an explanation," he said. "I think it's perhaps something in the players' minds - a mental thing.

"I think that you need a lot of courage, show a lot of character, personality, show a great mentality. i think this is a team we have where we lose ourselves very quickly but we find ourselves quickly too and that's a good thing."

Imagine turning up to Liverpool with nothing to say. Arriving in this great city of song with barely a chirrup. Well, it didn't take Napoli long to find their voice.

Speaking words of wisdom? Certainly not in the run-up to this game. Having found themselves in times of trouble, Napoli's touchy owner Aurelio De Laurentiis slapped a gag on his team.

Three weeks have passed since a Naples rebellion, when the squad en masse figured that being ordered by De Laurentiis to check in for a week-long isolated retreat at short notice amid a slump in form did not exactly tally with their own plans and did what could be reasonably termed 'a runner'.

Already disheartened, the week in camp was considered less the salve to their sorrow and more a firework detonated over an open wound.

The revolt looks set to cost Napoli's players millions of euros, with the sledgehammer diktat of De Laurentiis decreeing, according to whispers and leaks, that each player will forfeit a quarter of their month's salary. Sky Italia reported some were told only hours before kick-off at Anfield. Further reports say Napoli have fined midfielder Allan and captain Lorenzo Insigne 50 per cent of their November wad.

Forced into their shells, the one player who broke a gagging order on international duty, Eljif Elmas, was carpeted in a terse club statement - called out for spouting positively about the prospects of Carlo Ancelotti's team chasing a top-two Serie A finish. Perhaps De Laurentiis assumed it sarcastic, given seventh-placed Napoli have looked entirely incapable of scaling those heights.

Under apparent duress, Napoli boss Ancelotti obliged the UEFA paymasters with some cursory words in a pre-match press conference, but ostensibly he said nothing. The "all-time great", as Jurgen Klopp described Ancelotti in his programme notes, could not afford to be anything but the puppet of his boss, toeing the party line. One foot out of line and Ancelotti risks being put on permanent retreat.

Maybe, then, this was the night Napoli needed, not quite the Anfield smash-and-grab triumph but a match with a deep sense of occasion where they reminded many, perhaps themselves, of their qualities. It was resilience they were relying on at the end, a 1-1 result rewarding their labour. Wonder what the draw bonus pays…

Napoli supporters, in the absence of meaningful explanations from the club, have wondered who to direct their ire towards: should it be De Laurentiis, Ancelotti, or the players who, whatever else might be happening, have continued to flounder on the pitch, draws with Genoa and a Milan side battling their own crisis of confidence telling a story.

However, Liverpool were ponderous early on and there was no lack of belief on show when Dries Mertens followed a little playground tussling with Virgil van Dijk by sprinting behind the home backline to finish sublimely in the 21st minute, Napoli’s players displayed the delight of a team that actually care, much as their owner may have doubts.

The travelling Neapolitans in the stands, primed to castigate, were instead castling the men in blue and white.

De Laurentiis may be a luminary of modern Italian cinema, a highly prolific producer: his film factory pumps out movies more rapidly than Liverpool used to accumulate trophies, even if some might barely match the heft of a Milk Cup.

But being cast in a drama of his own has seen him tear up the plot and attempt to write one of his own.

Winning at Anfield would have added an unforeseen chapter to this season's chaotic story, and the hyper-animated Klopp, booked before half-time for one gesture of incredulity too many, was on a personal mission to change the flow, own the script.

A telling substitution saw Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain take over from Joe Gomez, with Jordan Henderson dropping to a right wing-back role to allow the former Arsenal man to find pockets of space further forward.

Napoli, thinking they had Liverpool's front three well watched, suddenly had an extra attacker to think about. The giant awoke. And how it roared in the 65th minute when Dejan Lovren's header from James Milner's corner rippled the left corner of Alex Meret's net.

Meret had already dropped one cross at the foot of Roberto Firmino, whose shot was hooked off the line. But as much as Liverpool pressed in the closing minutes, they could not break down the Italians again.

The sight of Andy Robertson steaming into a late challenge showed both sides were up for the scrap. It also showed Liverpool had met their match in a team we thought were in crisis. Appropriately, tonight, Napoli walked through their storm. They rattled the European champions. For the first time in a while, they could hold their heads up high.

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli was unsurprised by the "amazing" Harry Kane breaking a Champions League record on Tuesday.

Kane scored a brace in Spurs' come-from-behind 4-2 win over Olympiacos, setting a record in the process.

The England international became the fastest player to score 20 Champions League goals, reaching the tally in just 24 games – two quicker than Juventus great Alessandro Del Piero.

Alli was unsurprised by his team-mate's efforts, hailing the 26-year-old forward.

"It's amazing," he said. "Obviously we've been playing together for a few years now, he's an amazing guy, top player so he deserves all the credit he gets.

"I'm not surprised he broke another record."

Alli was also on the scoresheet as Jose Mourinho's men came from behind to secure their place in the knockout round from Group B.

The 23-year-old said Spurs knew they had the talent to turn the clash around.

"I think just character and belief. We know the quality we have in the squad," Alli said.

"When you're performing badly, you want to turn it around. Personally I felt like I was at fault for the second goal.

"Getting the goal just before half-time gives us momentum going into the second half and belief. I think we showed our quality in the second half."

Tottenham are in action again at home to Bournemouth on Saturday.

Diego Simeone blamed Atletico Madrid's scoring woes on wasteful finishing rather than chance creation following the Champions League loss to Juventus.

The Rojiblancos drew a blank in Turin as Paulo Dybala's stunning free-kick before half-time wrapped up a 1-0 win and top spot in Group D for the Serie A side.

Alvaro Morata squandered a good late opportunity, albeit from a seemingly offside position, while Thomas Partey and Saul Niguez missed decent chances as the visitors hit the target with two of their 15 shots.

Atletico have now been restricted to six goals in five Champions League games and are the least prolific of all bar one team among LaLiga's top 12.

Simeone said: "I think we played a good game against a really great team.

"I think we are lacking precision in the forward areas as we are generating enough dangerous situations to score goals. We worked very well tactically."

He continued: "We need to work on improving our numbers, which are bad.

"Obviously we all need to work more, have patience and do our best in order to generate more chances.

"Vitolo and Morata put in a great effort and Felipe played an extraordinary game. We improved as the game went on. In the first half we tried to be strong at the back and then play on the break.

"We did well as [Juve] hardly created chances in the first half, except the goal, and in the second half we also improved as the period went on but could not score, which is the most important thing in football."

Atletico splashed €126million on Joao Felix in the close season but have struggled to replace Antoine Griezmann's goals.

The loss of Diego Costa for up to three months with a neck injury has further depleted Simeone's attacking stocks, but the Argentine head coach would not commit to further spending in January.

"I work with the players I have," he said.

"I'm doing my best in order to make them better and I will not change that mentality. Then, we will see what decisions will be made regarding the needs the team have."

"What the f*** are you shooting from over there?" was Maurizio Sarri's reaction to Paulo Dybala's memorable free-kick for Juventus in the Champions League.

Dybala scored a stunning set-piece against Atletico Madrid as Juve secured top spot in Group D with Tuesday's 1-0 victory in Turin.

From an acute angle on the right side of the penalty box, Dybala somehow beat Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak in first-half stoppage time.

Speaking to reporters post-game, Juve head coach Sarri said: "Dybala scored a goal that nobody could have advised him to do.

"The first thing that a coach says in that situation is: 'What the f*** are you shooting from over there?' And therefore what he did was extraordinary.

"The applause was owed to him, for the performance but also for the technical skill which was extraordinary."

While Dybala was the hero again for Juve, it was another frustrating night for superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Having missed last week's victory away to Atalanta due to his troublesome knee, Ronaldo returned to the line-up but he appeared to struggle against Atletico.

Asked if Ronaldo is cut off from the game due to the team's style of play, Sarri told reporters: "No, there was no problem with Ronaldo.

"The problem was the way we were occupying spaces. In the first half Paulo was often playing far away from the goal, Cristiano was not playing in the centre and therefore we were never occupying the central spaces. We could have done this more with one of the two alternatively, when Paulo was going for the ball Cristiano could have played more in the centre and when Cristiano was out Dybala could have gone less for the ball.

"Otherwise we could have exploited that space with [Aaron] Ramsey, therefore we had some problem occupying spaces, rather than because we were cutting off players from the game."

Marten De Roon said Atalanta have finally shown they can compete at Champions League level having been a "bit of a joke" in their opening three matches.

Luis Muriel and Alejandro Gomez goals handed Atalanta their first Champions League victory as the Serie A side kept their slim last-16 hopes alive with a deserved 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday.

Gian Piero Gasperini's Atalanta now find themselves in a three-way battle for the second qualification spot behind Group C winners Manchester City heading into matchday six.

"After the first three matches we looked like a bit of a joke in the Champions League, but after tonight we showed we're at this level," midfielder De Roon said.

Atalanta head coach Gasperini added: "It's the night we wanted. Gomez's goal came after many missed chances and gave us the boost we needed. Now we believe we can progress."

The Italian outfit remain bottom of Group C and must beat Shakhtar Donetsk in the final game while hoping Dinamo fail to win against Pep Guardiola's Premier League champions.

Atalanta midfielder Remo Freuler said: "We believe we can progress, of course. We need a win to stay in Europe – and, if we're lucky, the Champions League."

It was a disappointing evening for their Croatian opponents, who had thrashed Atalanta 4-0 in the reverse fixture.

"Sometimes you have to admit that your opponents were better and Atalanta were simply better than us tonight," coach Nenad Bjelica said.

"We had some chances when we were one goal behind but didn't score from them. We could have been better in every segment of the game. We let them make chances and we didn't play fast and simple enough.

"They deserved it tonight. They played like we did in the game in Zagreb. Now we have nothing to lose. In front of our fans, anything can happen."

Cristiano Ronaldo continues to be troubled by knee pain, with Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri to discuss the injury with his star forward.

Ronaldo returned to the Juve side for Tuesday's 1-0 Champions League win at home to Atletico Madrid after missing a weekend victory away to Atalanta in Serie A.

The Portugal international appeared to struggle at times as Paulo Dybala's stunning free-kick ensured the Bianconeri will finish top of Group D with a game to spare.

Ronaldo was substituted in each of Juve's two league games prior to the international break, and Sarri accepts the 34-year-old's fitness must be managed.

"I haven't spoken to him yet about the pain in his knee," Sarri told Sky Sport Italia after Ronaldo completed the full 90 minutes. 

"But he looked to be in good shape, as in the final stages he was tracking back, fighting hard and helping out in defence.

"Dybala is world class, in a very positive period of form, so right now he is making the difference."

Though Juve maintained their momentum with another victory, Sarri was left frustrated with aspects of their performance against Atletico.

"We used up a lot of energy this evening, as is inevitable in the Champions League," he added. 

"I think we did very well but, like the Atalanta match at the weekend, we had to fight very hard to achieve the victory.

"It was above all a great first half, and we built on that. We tend to struggle more in Serie A to pass it around quickly.

"Perhaps there is more motivation for us in the Champions League, but that is a mistake, because we have to play this style of football in every tournament.

"I was angry in the second half, as we gave the ball away cheaply. The sensation was that, just like Atalanta, we allowed them to cross too much.

"Maybe we need to improve the intensity with which we close down these crosses and passes in wide areas."

Koke said Atletico Madrid were "angry" after a defeat to Juventus saw Diego Simeone's side fail to secure Champions League qualification.

Paulo Dybala's fantastic free-kick moments before half-time ensured the Serie A champions will finish top of Group D, leaving Atletico to battle with Bayer Leverkusen for second spot.

Alvaro Morata missed a golden late chance to earn a draw in Turin on Tuesday, though the goal might well have been chalked off by the VAR for offside, as Atleti slipped to defeat against the team that knocked them out of the tournament last season.

Midfielder Koke was left frustrated by a result that likely means Atletico must beat already eliminated Lokomotiv Moscow at home next month to guarantee their progression to the knockout round.

"We are very angry, the team has given everything, we have created chances, but we have not had the fortune to win," Koke said. 

"They have not dominated us, in the last play of the first half they score a goal.

"The team has tried everything, we had the ball, we attacked well... we just need to put it in."

Atletico have failed to win any of their past six games away from home in all competitions with Koke claiming Simeone's side deserved more against Juventus.

"Many times we are criticised for playing badly and winning, now we play well and we don't win," he said.

"The results are going to come, we are creating chances, in the opposite area we have to be more decisive. 

"Granada on Saturday [a 1-1 LaLiga draw] there was nothing to reproach and today neither."

Atalanta kept their slim hopes of reaching the Champions League knockout stages alive as they claimed a deserved 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb.

Goals in either half from Luis Muriel and Alejandro Gomez earned the Serie A side their first Champions League victory, having been thrashed when the sides met earlier in the campaign.

Three points for Atalanta mean there is now a three-way fight for the second qualification spot behind group winners Manchester City heading into matchday six, despite Shakhtar Donetsk's draw at the Etihad Stadium.

Gian Piero Gasperini's side still trail both Dinamo and Shakhtar, who they must beat in the final game while hoping the Zagreb side fail to beat City. 

Atalanta made the more purposeful start on Tuesday and took a deserved 27th-minute lead.

The visitors looked to have escaped when Robin Gosens' thunderous volley cannoned off the crossbar, yet Dino Peric clumsily caught Muriel in his attempts to clear the rebound.

Muriel dusted himself down and made no mistake from the penalty spot, sending Dinamo goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic the wrong way with a cool side-footed effort.

The Colombian striker should have added to his tally before the interval, too, twice blazing presentable opportunities over the crossbar.

But within two minutes of the restart, Atalanta had doubled their advantage in some style as skipper Gomez cut in from the right, danced his way past Luka Ivanusec and drilled a low shot inside the left-hand post.

It was a dominant display from the hosts, who looked the more likely to grab the game's third goal, with Gomez thwarted by Livakovic late on.
