It was the second consecutive match without a victory for Massimiliano Allegri and his men who will have the imperative of bouncing back on Wednesday evening against Sporting CP in the Champions league’s third round fixture.

Juventus

Bianconeri allowed two goals in each of their last two league outings (to Atalanta and Lazio) which is certainly something Allegri will worry about ahead of the clash with a strong attacking lineup of Sporting’s.

Moreover, Juve have been struggling a lot to find goals at the start of the Champions league campaign as they could not break the deadlock all up until late in the second half of the second round clash with Olympiacos Piraeus two weeks ago at Allianz Stadium.

They are all levelled with Sporting CP at three points each after opening two fixtures and a potential failure here would seriously compromise Juve’s ambitions on reaching the knockout phase.

Sporting CP

Leoes have had a very tough schedule over the last couple of weeks facing Porto in Primeira Liga derby just four days after playing Barcelona in the second round of Champions League.

However, Jorge Jesus’ men will enter the most important group phase match with an improved confidence as they notched four goals past Oleiros in the weekend’s Taca da Liga action.

Juventus vs Sporting CP: Head to head

The two sides are about to take on each other for the first time in an official match on Wednesday.

They did play a friendly six years ago when the Portuguese outfit took a 1-2 victory.

Juventus vs Sporting CP: Prediction

The bookies see Juve as 4/11 favourites to snatch a three-pointer, but we can hardly see any value there given their poor defensive form in the recent weeks.

Instead, we see the BTTS as a much more convenient option set at the evens odds.

Juventus vs Sporting CP: Bet Tips

  • The first bet will be BTTS @ 2.00 odds
  • You can have Sporting CP + 1.5 handicap @ 1.75 odds.
