Juventus vs Barcelona 22 Nov 2017: UCL Preview and Predictions

Soccer | Group Stage

This week we will be treated to a game between Barcelona and Juventus in the UEFA Champions League. This is a clash between two of the best teams in Europe and as a result, I am expecting a great game of football.

Juventus have not been very convincing this season but that could be due to constant changing in the side. This team lacks many aspects in their defense and that is something they need to work on. The loss of Bonucci is something that they have not managed to fill and as a result, we are seeing a much weaker team. In relation to their attacking strength, this seems to have improved. Douglas Costa adds pace which Dybala seems to improve every game. This will not be an easy game for the Italian side but at home, they have what it takes to beat any side.

On the other hand, Barcelona are riding the form of Leo Messi. The little magician is in sublime form and is making up for the departed Neymar and the out-of-form Luis Suarez. This will be a much harder test for Messi since Juventus are a quality side and will be very organized in shutting him down.

All in all, I think that Juventus will be too strong at home and I am going to predict that they win this game of football. Betting on the outright result is a good bet in my opinion. We are getting a good price on Juventus so the bet makes sense. In addition to that, we are also getting a really good price on the under 2.5 goals which in another bet that I like.
