7th August 2020 – 21:00, Allianz Stadium, Torino
Juventus is going to host Lyon in the second leg of the Champions League 8th finals. The hosts are looking forward to turning around the result, while the away side wants to keep their minimal advantage from the first clash.
Match Preview & Team News
The home side managed to win the Serie A title once again, and they finished one point ahead of Inter. However, the title race wasn’t exciting at all since Juventus secured the top spot four rounds before the finish of the campaign. Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads failed to three defeats in the last four matches, and they need to get back on track if they want to challenge the Champions League trophy. Juventus lost just once at Allianz Stadium, and that defeat came in the latest round against Roma. The hosts have been compelling in the group stage of the Champions League as they failed to win just once. However, they lost the first leg match 1:0, and a challenging task is ahead of them.
Lyon didn’t enjoy the Ligue 1 campaign, as they finished on the 7th spot. If they want to book the place in the Champions League in the next season, the visitors need to win the current edition of the competition. Although the away side was pretty productive, they booked too many defeats and were ten points behind third-placed Rennes. Since Ligue 1 didn’t continue after the coronavirus break, Lyon played several friendlies to remain in the competitive form. The visitors challenged PSG in the Coupe de la Ligue finals but failed to defeat after a penalty shootout. They have been drawn a tight group; however, they managed to book the place in the 8th finals after finishing one point ahead of Benfica and Zenit.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Although Juventus hasn’t been in good form lately, they are favorites in this clash, and we believe they are capable of turning around the result.
Goals Market Prediction
The hosts need to start attacking from the very beginning of the match. On the other hand, Lyon’s defense hasn’t been so tight lately, and we think this game could go over 2.5 margin.
