Juventus vs Valencia
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 27 November 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Juventus will be looking to rebound from the fourth round defeat to Manchester United as they play host to Valencia on Tuesday evening at Allianz Stadium. The Old Lady are still in firm control in Group H, but a failure here could seriously complicate things for them and drop them down to 3rd place with Man Utd’s victory over Young Boys in the other match of the group at Old Trafford.
A win here would, however, push Bianconeri to the knockout stage regardless of what happens in England. The hosts raised the confidence with back-to-back domestic wins over Milan and SPAL (both 2-0). Cristiano Ronaldo looks to have finally found the wanted form as the Portuguese superstar found the net in all of team’s last three outings. He bagged seven goals in last eight matches for Juve. Ronaldo is thus our top recommendation for the anytime goalscorer bet here.
Juventus vs Valencia: Head-to-head
Juventus were in troubles in the first round when Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off right at the half-hour-mark of the clash against Valencia at Mestalla.
Nevertheless, Massimiliano Allegri’s troops showed a fantastic team spirits and strength to bag a 0-2 victory thanks to separate Miralem Pjanic penalty-kick goals.
Valencia’s Dani Parejo failed to convert a penalty in the sixth minute of the added time on the occasion.
Juventus vs Valencia: Prediction
The Bats struggled to get their campaign up and running in both La Liga and Champions League. Nonetheless, they did manage to turn a corner of late and will come into this in high spirits. Marcelino’s side won three on the spin, a thread which began with a 3-1 victory over Young Boys in the fourth round of the elite continental competition.
Santi Mina’s brace, Kevin Gameiro’s goal and a pair of assists from Rodrigo inspired the team’s demolishing 3-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday. The Bats can’t afford a defeat here and we can expect a strong defensive resistance from the side which did not concede two or more goals in any of last 13 games across competitions.
