After playing the final in 2015, Juventus can no longer be happy with anything less than winning the title. They have been present in the latter stages of the Champions League almost permanently in the last 20 years, much like their opposition – but Lyon are far from their best year at the moment.
Will they be able to produce anything at home against the Italian giants, or will we see another typical Juventus walkover?
Lyon vs Juventus – 18/10/2016
Betting Odds: Lyon 5.50 or 9/2 Draw 3.75 or 11/4 Juventus 1.72 or 8/11
Juventus have only dropped points twice this season. A loss against Inter in Derby D’Italia and a 0-0 draw against Sevilla in the Champions League. Not only are all their other games wins, but they are convincing wins – they game simply works.
They have three forwards (Dybala, Higuain and Madzukici) which are in top form and can score against any defense, their midfield works brilliantly and their defense is as strong as ever. The only slight bad news are some injuries – Pjaca, Chiellini and Rugani – but given the value of their squad, these can quickly be overcome.
On the other hand, Lyon are looking anything but good so far. Losing against Sevilla was a bitter blow to their qualification chances, and their form in the domestic league is awful. They’ve lost against teams like Dijon or Lorient, accidents that really shouldn’t happen so soon and so often.
Juventus will pose an entirely different threat, and since they will be properly motivated, it’s hard to think the French team will be able to stop them.
Lyon vs Juventus Betting Tips
Thus, our prediction for this game is Juventus to win and under 4,5 or 3,5 goal bet is also a good idea. Dybala is our favorite player from the Juventus squad for this game, especially after scoring twice against Udinese – so if you’re looking for a goalscoarer, he is the most likely candidate – especially since he takes their penalties as well. Good luck!

Champions League Football Predictions And Betting Tips
Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions. Leicester have qualified and are doing badly in their domestic league, which opens the door to Porto to do what’s required of them and qualify from the group as well – but will they be able to capitalize? Porto vs Leicester City – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Porto 1.35 or 7/20 Draw 5.25 or 17/4 Leicester City 11.00 or 10/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20 Under 1.95 or 19/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.25 or 5/4 No 1.57 or 4/7 Porto can qualify in only…
Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow. The two teams haven’t been up to their normal standards of quality in the CL so far, but surely want to play European soccer – even if it is in the Europa League. Tottenham have a slight advantage, but will it prove to be enough? Tottenham vs CSKA Mosow – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Tottenham 1.53 or 8/15 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 CSKA Moscow 7.00 or 6/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.95 or 19/20 No 1.80 or 4/5 Actually, the Spurs have a few advantages on their…
Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group. While Sevilla has a very hard game against Lyon, Juventus are hosting the weakest team of the group stage, Dinamo Zagreb. A win would ensure first place – can they get it? Juventus vs Dinamo Zagreb – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Juventus 1.12 or 1/8 Draw 10.00 or 9/1 Dinamo 26.00 or 25/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.44 or 4/9 Under 2.70 or 17/10 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.62 or 13/8 No 1.44 or 4/9 Our analysis tells us that Juventus should…
The last day of the Champions League group stage is one of the hardest to predict. Teams are either qualified and have no desire to field their best eleven, or are clinging to the last chance to play European football in spring as well. Sadly for the spectacle of the CL, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified before their direct game and are both sure of their positions in the group. Bayer vs Monaco – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Bayer 1.80 or 4/5 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Monaco 4.75 or 15/4 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.75 or 3/4 Under 2.05 or 21/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20 Monaco is one…
Group F of the Champions League features some very interesting games this week. We can see a clash between Dortmund and Real Madrid, which will decide the leader of the group, and a game for 3rd place, between Sporting Lisbon and Legia Warsaw – which is much harder to predict that it looks on paper. Legia Warsaw vs Sporting Lisbon – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Legia 4.60 or 18/5 Draw 3.90 or 29/10 Sporting 1.80 or 4/5 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.65 or 13/20 Under 2.20 or 6/5 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.61 or 8/13 No 2.20 or 6/5 We’re saying it’s hard to predict because Legia has shown they are capable of playing good football, especially…
