Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Juventus will be hosting Bayer Leverkusen in another clash of the group stage of the Champions League. They had the opening match on the road against Atletico Madrid which ended in a 2-2 draw. The old lady is unbeaten in the Seria A fixtures in this season.
Their previous home tie was with Verona in the Seria A league games. The debut goal from the former Gunner, Ramsey, and an expected goal from their star striker Cristiano Ronaldo sealed the deal for the Italian champions. Juve displayed good defense against their opponent’s continued attacks shown by the 5 corner kicks in the game.
Bayer Leverkusen had the first bout against the Russian giants, Lokomotiv Moscow, awarding them a loss in the group stage ties. Leverkusen was on a roll in the Bundesliga and had lost only once in their five Bundesliga fixtures. Their previous trip on the road against Borussia Dortmund resulted in a 4-0 defeat even though they held the ball longer.
It is sure that the Italian champions will have more control if the RDR trio can find their scoring boots in the ninety minutes.

Juventus vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
Juventus has been a strong side in scoring since the arrival of Ronaldo in the mix. To sharpen their attacks, Dybala has been assisted with Ramsey. With this attacking front, it is sure to see goals at the opposite end of the field. Juve has scored 6 of their previous 8 goals in the second half of the game. Hence, there is a likely chance that the RDR trio will slot in a goal after the clash restarts.
Leverkusen has not been that strong but has put a decent run in the Bundesliga. They have defeated Juventus at their home but was seven years ago. They have not faced this team and will certainly experience the heat in the upcoming tie. As such, it is probable that the Italian Champions will clearly defeat the German outfits.
