Even though Champions League group draws are mostly random, we see games happening over and over again between the same teams. Juventus and Sevilla also shared a group last season, with each team winning its home game. The teams have completely different summers, one of them signing players for record fees and the other losing the head coach which made them a part of history. How will the game between the two end?
Juventus vs Sevilla
Sevilla won their tickets for this year’s Champions League by winning their third Europa League in a row, an all-time record for the competition.
Sadly for them, head coach Unai Emery went on to sign with PSG and even took a player with him, and the team looks like it lost its direction without him.
The 6-4 win against Espanyol in the domestic league is the perfect example of how Sevilla looks this year: brimming with talent and quality, but lacking pragmatism and direction.
On the other hand, Juventus seem even stronger than last year, if that’s even possible. After the record sale of Pogba, they signed Higuain and broke another club record, and the Argentinian forward hit the ground running and scored lots of goals already.
The Italian team can compete for the cup this year, having a high-quality squad and a great coach. With a small hint of luck, they might be able to reach the final.
Juventus vs Sevilla Betting Tips
This is one of the easy games of this day. Juventus home win. They will score and they will beat Sevilla, simply because they are the better team and an absolute monster at home.
Higuain or Dybala to score is another smart bet, the two being the main threats for the Spanish goal. Last but not least, we do expect some yellow cards to be picked up in the game, at least 3 or 4.
Even though the Italians will attack and win the game, they are still Italians – who believe that yellow cards are a part of the game.
Juventus To Win: 1.55 or 11/20
