Juventus 2/9 to beat Olympiakos in Tuesday’s Champions League showdown

Competition: Champions League

Market: Juventus to beat Olympiakos

Odds: 2/9 @ Bet365

The Champions League is back for another round of incredibly interesting fixtures as Europe’s best teams once again go head-to-head. These matches are the final act of the group-stages, and the three points on offer can be the difference between a side going out at this stage, and prolonging their European campaign this season. With this in mind, Juventus travel to face Olympiakos on Tuesday.

Olympiakos have been struggling massively in Europe this season and this will be their last game outside of their domestic league and cups this year. After five games they have drawn once and lost four times, meaning they have one point and are six short of third-placed Sporting Lisbon. Clearly, their campaign has been a disappointing one and they must now turn their attention to things that they can impact upon in a positive way. Indeed, they can do so by putting in a good performance against Juventus and giving their fans something to cheer.

Juventus have looked good this season and, had it not been for Barcelona, they would most likely have been sitting at the top of their group right now. Two wins, two draws and a defeat have seen them take eight points, meaning they are a point above third-place Sporting Lisbon. The Italians will see this game as a must-win as they will not want to be relying on Barcelona to beat Sporting, even though most would back them to do so. With this in mind, we are backing Juventus with odds of 2/9 from Bet365.
