Lyon vs Juventus Soccer Betting Tips

First leg of the round of 16, in what will be the least balanced matches in this phase.

Lyon ended up reaching the round of 16 in a very balanced group but leveled below, and had it not been a weak Benfica at European level and the French would not have reached this stage of the competition.

It is clear that this Lyon team is far from being a difficult obstacle, and without Depay it is still a more accessible opponent.

In the French championship the team is in 7th place, out of the European places and will have some difficulties in being able to qualify for the Europa League, as for the places of access to the Champions, these are still mathematically possible but I do not believe that it comes close.

As already mentioned, Depay possibly the main figure of the team and the team’s top scorer in the Champions League with 5 goals in 5 matches, remains out.

Reine-Adélaïde and Koné are the other elements who miss the French, Brazilian side Rafael is in doubt.

Juventus, which has dominated Italian football to its delight for the past few seasons, has in recent years made a strong bet to return to European conquests, but the team this season under the technical command of Sarri has not convinced, yet the team benefited from Inter’s slips to take the isolated lead of Serie A but the one who took advantage of these less positive moments, both from Juventus and Inter, was Lazio, who is currently in 2nd place and is “biting” the Juventus heels with just 1 point.

The football presented by Juventus does not convince me, however in the face of the most accessible team in my view of these round of 16, there should be no difficulty in reaching the quarter finals, however reaching that stage and depending on the opponent I believe that the Italians will be able stick around.

Douglas Costa and Demiral are the main absences, Khedira is in doubt. Higuaín and Pjanic are back.

Probable teams for the match Lyon vs Juventus

Lyon: Anthony Lopes, Denayer, Marcelo, Marçal, Dubois, Tousart, Aouar, Cornet, Toko Ekambi, Dembélé and Terrier.

Juventus: Szczęsny, Danilo, Bonucci, De Ligt, Alex Sandro, Ramsey, Matuidi, Bentancur, Cuadrado, Ronaldo and Dybala.

Juventus should not have any difficulties in overcoming this opponent, the French have already had some luck in passing the group stage, but from this stage I do not believe that they pass or provoke a dent in the Italians.

Ronaldo, this one has been intractable, the Portuguese continues to break records at the age of 35, and as a rule, as you’ve seen in recent seasons, you prepare to be in your best physical condition in the 2nd half of the season and that’s where you score the most goals, so I believe that against a less rigorous opponent at the defensive level the Portuguese will score again.

Betting Tips: Ronaldo to score
Odds: 1.87
