Young Boys vs Juventus Champions League

The match is over.
Score: 2-1.

The Champions League group stage concludes this midweek with a Group H clash between Young Boys and Juventus on Wednesday evening in a game the visitors are favourites, having already sealed their progression to the last 16.

Predictions

Juventus have already sealed their progress to the Champions League last 16 – and will now be seeking to win the group – while Young Boys can only finish in fourth place, meaning they go out of Europe altogether.

The Italian side have won four of their five group games to date with their only blotch a 2-1 loss at home to Manchester United earlier in the group.

Juve have won the last seven Italian titles in a row and will now be hoping to translate this success into Europe, having lost each of the 2015 and 2017 Champions League finals.

Young Boys have only picked up one point from their five group stage games to date, when the Swiss side secured a 1-1 draw at home to Valencia, who will finish the group in third place.

The visitors will be favourites to make it five European wins out of six despite not possessing home advantage, as they possess vastly superior form and quality over Young Boys.

The away side are favourites to win this game and it should be comfortable – a 3-0 triumph for the Turin-based side would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

This is among the best football betting odds for the midweek round of Champions League games. Juventus have four clean sheets from five Champions League games this campaign while Young Boys have managed a miserly two goals from their five outings. The gulf between the sides is vast and the visitors possess arguably the best defence in European football.

Again these are generous odds on football’s best betting sites because Juve are expected to win this game at a canter. They are likely to keep a clean sheet yet their attacking ability it also underestimated despite now possessing Cristiano Ronaldo. Juve have found the net in each Champions League game to date and recorded a comfortable 3-0 home win over the Swiss side in October, winning both halves.

Statistics

Head to Head

Paulo Dybala’s hat-trick for the Bianconeri gave Max Allegri’s side a comfortable three-goal victory in Turin two months ago. The two clubs had never played each other before that match.

  • Juve are in imperious form this season, winning 17 and losing just one of their 19 competitive matches to date this campaign.
  • Young Boys are in impressive form in the Swiss league – 18 points clear of second-placed Thun after just 16 matches, winning 14 of their games.
  • The Swiss side have never previously won a Champions League group stage match.
