Juventus vs Lyon Predictions
Juventus have been among the favourites to lift the Champions League trophy since the start of this season. With the quality afforded to boss Maurizio Sarri and the experience of players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Giorgio Chiellini, the Old Lady are always going to be a threat in this competition and they eased through the group stages with 16 points from a possible 18, before losing the first leg of this Round of 16 tie 1-0 in France.
Having dominated Serie A for so long, Juventus find themselves in a closer title race than they have been in for quite some time this season and at the time of writing are sitting in second place behind Lazio, two points away with a game in hand. As difficult as Sarri is finding the title race right now, the former Chelsea boss has to turn his attentions back to Europe as he looks for a win here at 2/5 with Bet365.
Lyon are not having the best of Ligue 1 seasons this time around and face a fight to simply qualify for the Champions League next term. With PSG unsurprisingly running away with the league title, les Gones find themselves floundering in fifth place, with the gap between themselves and Rennes, who occupy the final qualification spot, sitting at seven points. As such, they may be out to make the most of their time in the competition this season.
Having somehow managed to battle their way through to the next round despite winning just two of their six group stage matches, Rudi Garcia’s men earned a surprise 1-0 home win in the first leg of this tie and that victory has come in the midst of a five game unbeaten run that has included four victories. With confidence flowing, a draw would be enough to send the French side through here – but you can back them to win at odds of 8/1 with William Hill.
We’re anticipating Juventus to find a way through to the next round here though. In Gonzalo Higuain, Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo, the Old Lady possess one of the most prolific attacking trios in the whole competition and we expect their superior quality to shine through in front of their own supporters. A win with a one goal handicap at odds of 23/20 with BetVictor would be enough to send Juventus through.
Cristiano Ronaldo remains the highest-scoring player in Champions League history and he’s saved so many of his biggest career moments for this competition. Although the Portuguese superstar is reaching the autumn of his career, he is still averaging a goal a game in Serie A this season and he’ll be desperate to inspire his side through to the next round by getting on the scoresheet in a home win here.
