Manchester United vs Juventus | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
It is the derby of the day. Two big teams, two rich histories, and many players who might swap their colors in the upcoming winter transfer window. There is no room for any mistakes, especially for the Red Devils who are experiencing many problems on and off the field recently. Expect a tough and tactical clash at Old Trafford, because nobody wants to lose this one.
Juve is on top in this group with two wins in two matches, while United failed to beat Valencia at home in the previous round, which is why they need to notch down three points in this event. They were close to defeat Chelsea in the latest Premiership derby, but instead, they only got a draw 2:2. Surprisingly Juve couldn’t defeat Genoa at home, 1:1.
If it weren’t for Ross Barkley who scored an equalizer in the sixth minute of extra time at Stamford Bridge this Saturday, Jose Mourinho would be much more relaxed before this match. Now, the Special One has to defeat Juventus and regain the trust of the Red Devils’ fans. United hasn’t lost in three straight, but two of them were draws. What is very interesting is the fact that four of the previous five clashes United participated in, ended with over 3.5 goals. Just a few pundits and experts are talking about that situation. The defensive core of this team is very unstable, and they often concede first and afterward chase the result. One more small detail for you. Before Newcastle and that superb comeback, Man Utd had four matches in a row at Trafford in which they couldn’t win. So this is “be or not to be” for them.
Since the season started the Old Lady from Turin has been magnificent on the road. Five matches, five wins, with minimum two goals scored in each. It is truly fantastic. And the defensive line is fine too. We have to mention that Juventus kept clean sheets on the latest three road trips outside Turin. However, their excellent streak was interrupted this Saturday against Genoa at their stadium. Just a few expected to see a draw after 10 straight victories of the undisputed Italian powerhouse. Ronaldo and Dybala will present a massive threat to United through counter-attacks, and we expect from Allegri to set up defensive-minded tactics for this spectacle.
Latest Team News
The Red Devils have several players with minor injuries, and who are still questionable. Fellaini, Herrera, Jesse Lingard, McTominay, Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic. The only one who is going to miss this match for sure is Marcos Rojo. On the other side, Sami Khedira is ruled out, while Spinazzola is uncertain.
After 12 games so far between the two former European champions, the honors are even at the moment. United and Juve both have five wins apiece while two matches ended without a winner. However, the last three official meetings were in favor of the Red Devils.
Odds and Predictions
United is an underdog here, and we might say a huge one. The odds on their win are at 3.10, but with a tendency to go down. Juve’s triumph is set at 2.30, and a draw is 3.30.
Manchester United vs Juventus | Top Betting Tip: Draw (1-1)
After analyzing this game for a long time, we think that betting on a draw here would be the most reasonable solution. We can’t give an advantage to either of the sides. Juve is too strong, and they are definitely one of the main favorites to win this year’s edition of the Champions League. Meanwhile, despite not seeing that trough results, United is rising, and we expect them to be only better and better as the games go by. We saw that against Chelsea, and definitely against Newcastle. Plus, they can’t lose one more match in front of their fans, simply that would be too much for this club. The efficiency will be between 2 and 3 goals. United’s defense will allow at least one, and on the other hand, the Red Devils have a superb attack, and event though Juve has a world-class defense, Martial and the boys will net one time. Conclusion, Manchester United – Juventus 1:1.
