Juventus will welcome Chelsea to for a matchday 2 fixture in Europe UEFA Champions League. The last meeting on 20th November 2012 ended in a Juventus 3-0 win. Both sides have met two times in the most recent seasons. Juventus has won 1 match, and Chelsea failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 3.50 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
The season has just started and is too early to tell, but looks very solid on paper. The visitors lack quality in some positions on the field and will struggle to match their opponent’s intensity.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Juventus or Draw.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Juventus’s home and Chelsea’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. Juventus failed to keep a clean sheet in 0% of home games, while Chelsea conceded in 0% of away games. On average, both teams score in 0% of Juventus’s home and Chelsea’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
