Competition: Champions League
Market: Juventus and Bayern to draw
Odds: 21/10 @ Coral
Italian Serie A side Juventus lock horns with German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich tonight in the first leg of the Champions League knockouts. It’s a clash that could go either way given the strength, but Juve will certainly fancy their chances of a result on home soil.
Coming off the back of 15 league wins from their last 16, Juventus are in fantastic shape of late. The Old Lady enjoyed wins over Manchester City and Sevilla in the Champions League, but weren’t at their best following a slow start to the season.
Things have changed, however, with the Italians formidable in their own backyard and boasting the type of momentum that could see them beating Bayern. The Germans shouldn’t be underestimated, however.
Manager Pep Guardiola has a lot of criticism coming his way after announcing his plans to leave the club in the summer, but he’s desperate to succeed in Europe. The German outfit were solid in the group stage, and are gunning for victory in Turin.
The two sides are likely to cancel each other out with an emphasis on being tactically hard to play through, and Coral are giving odds of 21/10 for Juve and Bayern to draw as a result.
