Chelsea vs Juventus: Prediction and Betting Tips
Chelsea going for a clear win
Chelsea will be eyeing to go top of Group H as they host Juventus in matchday five of the UEFA Champions League. For that, the Blues need to win by a two-goal margin, something they have never done against the Bianconerri. However, the reigning UCL champions are in great form conceding just one goal and that was in their only defeat in Turin.
With the intention of finishing first in the group, Tuchel has to adopt an offensive strategy. During their last outing at Stamford Bridge, things didn’t go as planned. In fact, the Blues drew with Burnley in the Premier League. In the UCL however, Chelsea managed to keep two clean sheets in their two fixtures against Zenit and Malmo home soil.
Juventus will be content with a point
Unlike their journey in the Serie A so far this season, Juventus’ 2021/22 UCL season has been perfect. In effect, the Bianconerri have already qualified for the knockout stages but will do their best to cling to first place in Group H. Certainly, the game in Turin gave Allegri’s men the needed push and confidence in the UCL. Despite that win though, the Blues dominated the game.
Coming to London, Allegri can’t expect his team to be victorious again with the same kind of performance they had in Turin. To illustrate, in the first match Chelsea had 66% of ball possession and 15 goal attempts to Juve’s six. Hence, the Italians must be more active upfront and not just sit back and play for a point. That could be to launch quicker counter-attacks when gaining the ball.
Chelsea vs Juventus Prediction
Chelsea are having a great 2021/22 campaign despite their two defeats of the season in all competitions. After Tuchel took over Chelsea’s managerial job in January, he transformed Chelsea into one of the best teams in Europe. And he proved that by winning the UCL.
Despite Chelsea’s defeat in Turin, the bookies regard them as the favorites to beat Juventus in this match. Surely that is understandable with Juve’s weak performances in Serie A and Chelsea’s dominance of the match in Turin.
Obviously, Allegri will be more than happy with a point at Stamford Bridge. For that, the Italian tactician will rely on the counters and adopt a compact defense. As a result, we think not too many goals will be scored. Hence we will back the combo bet of double chance and under 3.5 goals.
