Juventus vs Sevilla – UEFA Champions League.
Juventus Stadium, Torino – 14 September 2016, 19:45.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
One of the most interesting clashes of the entire first round of UEFA Champions League group phase will be played on Wednesday evening at Juventus Stadium in Torino. Juventus and Sevilla have been drawn in the same group for the second year in a row. The last season’s encounters have seen two home victories, which is the most probable outcome of this match as well.
Juventus opened the season in Serie A in a terrific way. Massimiliano Allegri was more than successful with Juve winning two domestic titles last season, and he will be looking to repeat the same this year with probably even stronger squad. Gonzalo Higuain has already confirmed he is number one candidate for being top scorer in Serie A, having bagged three goals in three matches in the competition so far. Juve took the maximum of nine points from games against Fiorentina, Lazio and Sassuolo. Miralem Pjanic and Sami Khedira are looking great together in midfield.
Sevilla changed their squad dramatically in comparison to last season. Their new manager Jorge Sampaoli seems to be the man who can lead Sevilla towards achieving great results. The team took seven points from three opening matches in Primera Division. They pulled out an amazing comeback to win the match against Las Palmas this Saturday, even though they were a goal down until the dying minutes of the game. The substitutes Pablo Sarabia and Carlos Fernandez scored two goals within five minutes to secure three points for Sampaoli’s men.
Juventus have more quality in their squad without doubts and they should take three points from the opening match on home ground to avoid any further complications in the group stage. Since both teams have a decent potential up front and since Sevilla’s defensive line is looking pretty vulnerable with Rami and Pareja as centre backs, we expect a goals galore.
