Champions League Group B: Juventus to prevail over Los Blancos
Tuesday means Champions League, so we’ve put together a carefully selected bet for both Group B games, including Juventus’ gargantuan clash against Real Madrid in Turin.
A damaging draw in Copenhagen placed Italian champions Juventus on the back foot from the word go in this landmine-laden group.
Nevertheless, a spirited defeat to Real at the Bernabeu on matchday three – where Juve were the better side for large parts despite losing Giorgio Chiellini to some shameful Cristiano Ronaldo antics just minutes into the second half – will give Antonio Conte’s side the necessary belief they can claim a momentous three points here.
The Old Lady has certainly rediscovered her stride since that defeat too, discarding the walking stick to win three consecutive Serie A games to nil without conceding, while taking their league tally to five wins from five at the Juventus Arena.
Having already gained a maximum nine points to leave themselves all-but qualified, Carlo Ancelotti’s new-look Galacticos could be excused for defeat, while Juve showed they could open up this suspect Madrid defence, even with 10 men.
Galatasaray have another gilt-edge opportunity to put three points on the board against Group B minnows Copenhagen, whom they defeated 3-1 last time out.
After a rocky start to the season on all fronts, Turkey’s finest have finally focused, winning the last four in all competitions, and it’s three of their biggest stars who’ve regularly been doing the damage of late.
Punters would certainly be advised to seek out 6/4 on either Didier Drogba or Burak Yilmaz scoring anytime – having scored five-in-six and two-in-three respectively.
