Juventus v Manchester City Preview, Champions League, Group D, Wednesday 25th November 2015

Juventus head into this game currently placed second in the group d table on 8pts but are safely clear of third place Sevilla who are on just 3pts and a draw at the Juventus Stadium on Wednesday night could be good enough to secure the hosts a place in the last 16 of the tournament.

Juventus have had a difficult start to their new season on the domestic front which has seen them lost four times already from their opening thirteen matches played, but they have won their last three matches in succession and having seen their opponents suffer a heavy 4-1 defeat at home against Liverpool over the weekend, the confidence within the squad will obviously be high.

Manchester City head into the game a point clear of Juventus at the top of the group d table and have already secured their place in the last 16.

However, it does seem likely that the visitors will still be suffering from a bit of shock having been hammered 4-1 in front of their home fans over the weekend in the premiership and I can’t see any of the players being in any kind of confident mood as they prepare for this one.

The Juventus Stadium is going to be a difficult place for Manchester City come Wednesday night and with a very hostile crowd, the visitors are going to have to play much better than they did against Liverpool if they are to return home with anything from this one.

Juventus Team News:

The hosts will be without Hernanes for this game as he suffered a thigh injury in the 1-0 victory over AC Milan over the weekend. Sami Khedira is also unavailable as he is still receiving treatment for a similar thigh strain and Roberto Pereyra, Patrice Evra and Martin Caceres are all major doubts and unlikely to feature.

Manchester City Team News:

The visitors also have some injury problems and will be missing Samir Nasri, Wilfried Bony and David Silva as they all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems. Vincent Kompany is also a major doubt as he missed the 4-1 thrashing at the weekend by Liverpool and that does once again mean the defence looks vunerable.

Juventus v Manchester City Head to Head Statistics:

Wednesday night’s game from the Juventus Stadium will become only the fourth meeting between the two clubs over the years. Juventus have won one of those matches, but Manchester City have failed to win any and the remaining two games both finished all square.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

7 Goals have been scored in the previous 3 matches played between the two clubs over the years, which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.33.

2 of those Goals have came in the only other game played between the two clubs at the Juventus Stadium and this generates us an average goals per game statistic of exactly 2.00.

Looking at both sets of data above, it does seem to suggest that we should see between two or three goals scored in this game on Wednesday night.

Nothing between the two clubs on the recent form statistics as both have won three, drawn one and lost one of their previous five matches played, so this looks like being a very close game and the draw looking the most likely outcome.

Juventus v Manchester City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Juventus know that a victory on Wednesday night would not only guarantee their advancement to the next round of the tournament, but it would also put them top of the group d table with one match to play and with the importance of trying to avoid other group winners in the competition by winning your own group, I certainly expect the hosts to come out for this game with all guns blazing.

Manchester City have already secured their passage through to the next phase of the competition and with some key players missing from their squad for this game I can’t really see them being strong enough to contend with this Juventus side and with having been comfortably beaten by Liverpool over the weekend, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see Manchester City suffer another defeat.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Juventus to Win as for me they have the stronger squad available for this game and with the addes incentive of knowing that a victory will guarantee their place in the last 16, I fully expect them to be the ones celebrating come the full time whistle.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Juventus Striker Paulo Dybala to open up the goalscoring of the game for his side as with his winner against AC Milan over the weekend, he will be in confident mood of adding his name to the score-sheet again.
