Just two rounds to go in the group stages of the Champions League and top of Group H Juventus could secure their spot in the last 16 with a home win over Valencia. Yet to lose in Serie A and Ronaldo in top form, a win for the Turin giants looks very much on the cards. Form Labs previews the game with their betting tips and if you are looking for some enhanced odds then check out our massive selection for the Champions League.
Juventus On The Brink Of Qualification
A win for Juventus in this clash would guarantee them a spot in the knockout stages of the Champions League regardless of what happens in their final group game. They’ve been in superb form domestically as they’ve already earnt themselves a six-point cushion at the top of the table ahead of the visit of SPAL on Saturday, which should prove a formality.
Only a stalemate with Genoa has prevented them from holding a perfect record, while they’ve won 14 of their 16 matches across all competitions. That only European blip came when hosting Man Utd in a game they dominated for 85 minutes before two quick-fire strikes in the last five minutes turned the game on its head.
By contrast, Valencia have only won four of their 17 games across all competitions this season and although they only lost three of them, they suffered defeat in their only meeting with the hosts in the reverse fixture.
Valencia Struggling In Front Of Goal
Excluding the Red Devils’ freak smash and grab, Juve have kept a clean sheet in each of their three Champions League matches this season, while in Turin they have done so in nine of their last 11 European group stage matches.
Adding to that defensive record seems highly likely against this Valencia side. They are the lowest scorers in La Liga with eight goals and although they’ve netted four times in this competition, these all came against rock-bottom Young Boys, with three of those coming at the Mestalla. Moreover, Spanish teams have won only five of 30 Champions League matches since 2006/07 when travelling to one of the current top-six teams in Italy, failing to score in four of the last six.
Given over two-thirds of these games involved either Barca or Real Madrid, both of whom can boast far more significant firepower than Valencia, the win to nil looks rock solid.
