Juventus versus Europe League Champion
It’s a difficult task for Juventus Turin at the start of this year’s Champions League season. The Italian Champion has to play against Europe League title holder FC Sevilla, who finally wants to shake up the Champions League. Kick-off is September 14 at 8.45 PM.
Current form Juventus Turin
New season, same story in Italy. Nobody seems to be able to catch up with Juventus Turin once again this season. Expected challengers for the Italian title are struggling. Massimo Allegri’s team on the other hand had a flawless start into the season and is leading the league with three wins in three games. So their self-confidence should be more than high. The new signees are a real success so far. Morata replacement Gonzalo Higuaín, who came from Napoli, has scored three golas in as many games. Miralem Pjanic from Rome also could celebrate his first season goal for Juve lately. Last weekend the “Old Lady” celebrated a 3:1 victory against Sassuolo. Before that they won against Lazio Rome (1:0) and in the season opener against AC Florence (2:1). The balance between offense and defense seems to be right in Turin. Additionally their stadium proved to be a real fortress in international play. The Allegri-Eleven hasn’t been beaten at home in international play since April 2013. Juventus already played against Sevilla in the group phase in 2015/2016 and won the home game 2:0.
Current form FC Sevilla
Just like their opponent the management of FC Sevilla can be quite satisfied right now. The reigning Europe League Champion had a great start into the new season and is currently ranked second with seven points behind Real Madrid after three rounds. Their last game against former ranking leader UD Las Palmas ended in a 2:1 win. It seems as though the team has already bought into the system of new coach Jorge Sampaoli even though they had to let go some key players. Goal getter Kevin Gameiro for example went to FC Barcelona and Grezegorz Krychowiak signed with Paris Saint Germain. Before the win against Las Palmas Sevilla drew 0:0 at FC Villareal and won their season opner against Espanyol Barcelona 6:4. So apart from the game in Villareal the defense of Sevilla hasn’t been convincing yet. Last weekend they gave their opponent quite some chances to score and Sevilla only fixated the win in the last couple of minutes after they have even been down 0:1. They will have to be focused from the get-go against offensively strong Juventus Turin, otherswise they won’t stand much of a chance in Italy. Last season Sevilla was able to beat Juve at home at least. It’s bitter though that Sevilla will miss Timothée Kolodziejczak and Benoît on Wednesday. One defender is suspended and the other one is injured.
Juventus is able to beat anybody at their stadium. But they should be aware of Sevilla. The Andalusians have two very dangerous offensive players, namely Sarabia and Vietto. They are likely to score at any time. We still believe that it’s going to be a close home win for the Italians. Our recommendation: Tip 1.
