Juventus vs Nantes Europa League Prediction by LeagueLane

Juventus vs Nantes Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in UEFA Europa League on Thursday, 16 February 2023.

The Old Lady seem to have lost their way in the Italian top flight, with the point deductions and all drama. And now they will have to go after the Europa title, if they want to make it to the Champions League next season.

Meanwhile, Nantes will have their hands full this Thursday with the Italian giant. They are going through a decent stretch of performances in the Ligue 1, but a determined Juve will be another story.

Juventus vs Nantes Head-to-head stats

Only twice have these two locked horns before – in the 1996 edition of the Champions League. Then Nantes won their home leg 3-2, while the Italians won 2-0 at their home.

Who will win the match between Juventus vs Nantes?

At present the Old Lady are on a three-game winning streak, and this stretch includes wins over titans like Lazio and Fiorentina. In fact, they lost just twice in the past four months, and one of these defeats came against Napoli – who are possibly the best in Europe now.

And at home they lost just thrice since April of 2022, and two of these losses came in the Champions League.

On the other hand, Nantes are worrying about their performances on the road. It is deeply worrying for them that they were able to register just four wins on the road since May of 2022. They just might find it too tough to handle Juventus, who are playing like a team possessed.

How many goals can be expected?

The Old Lady failed to find the back of the net just once at this ground this whole season, and for them this upcoming encounter is the most important fixture of the season so far. We can count on them to deliver a high-quality performance.

But Nantes are not going to bow down without a fight. After all they did score two or more goals in 100% of their road trips since November, barring two fixtures.

It is reasonable to expect goals coming in plenty this Thursday.

Will Both Teams Score in the match?

Continuing from before, both teams have consistently found the back of the net over the course of the season. And with this game having higher stakes, chances of goals coming from either end of the pitch is only going to be higher.

Juventus vs Nantes Prediction

The Old Lady have huge momentum – owing to their active three-game winning streak, which includes wins over the likes of Lazio, and Fiorentina. They are also at home, where they lost just thrice since April of 2022. Note that two of these losses came in the CL.

On the other hand, Nantes could muster just four wins on the road since May of 2022, and they certainly are the underdogs here. Moreover, they are not a seasoned veteran like their counterparts in the European circuit as well.

Go for the Juventus -1.5 Asian Handicap this Thursday, at an attractive odd of 2.20.

Going on, both teams are consistently finding the back of the net. And with this being the first leg of a knockout fixture, nerves are going to be high.

Moreover, Juve failed to score at home just once this whole season, while their counterparts slotted in two or more goals in all but two road trips since November.

Likely, the Over 2.5 Match Goals wager would be a decent pick, at an odd of 1.90.
