Competition: Champions League
Market: Barcelona to win against Juventus
Odds: 8/15 @ Bet 365
Barcelona are expected to see past Juventus when the two sides lock horns at the Nou Camp for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash this evening, but they may struggle to score enough goals to overturn the 3-0 aggregate deficit given Juve’s famed defensive record.
Barca greatly underperformed at the Juventus Stadium, and while they may win tonight, Luis Enrique’s men will likely still be eliminated. Juve are the form side of the two, but Barca seldom lose at the Nou Camp, and scored six in the previous round to overturn a 4-0 aggregate deficit to Paris Saint-Germain.
Barcelona come into their second leg encounter with Juventus off the back of poor form, having lost two of their last three games in all competitions, while being given a scare in their recent 3-2 win over Real Sociedad. The Catalans have conceded seven goals in their last three games and face a Juventus side boasting real momentum.
As for the visitors, the Old Lady enjoyed a straight-forward group campaign in Europe, picking up 14 points from a possible 18, while beating FC Porto comfortably over the two legs in the last-16. This season, Massimiliano Allegri’s men have won seven and drawn two of their nine games in the Champions League.
Barcelona have to come out of the blocks fast to stand a chance of overturning the 3-0 aggregate deficit, and are being backed by Bet 365 with odds of 8/15 to at least win against Juve on the night.
