Juventus Prediction

Juventus possess a formidable 17-point lead at the top of Serie A but they’ll head into Tuesday night’s clash on the back of a surprise 2-1 defeat away at SPAL on the weekend, but the hosts had previously put together a four-match sequence where Juve had registered wins against Empoli, Cagliari and AC Milan along with last week’s draw away at Ajax in the 1st leg.

Recent results in the Champions League have been a little disappointing as Juventus have lost to Manchester United, Young Boys and Atletico Madrid in recent times, but have also recorded wins against Valencia and Atletico Madrid as well.

Results at home in the Champions League have seen Juventus lose just twice in their last nine matches at their Allianz Stadium which were defeats to Real Madrid and Manchester United, but they’ll be looking to record a third win on the trot in this competition at home when Ajax come to visit on Tuesday night.

Of course, the major difference for Juventus this season is the addition of prolific goalscorer, Ronaldo who has bagged 19 goals to date and he’s well supported by Mandzukic (8 goals), Kean (6 goals) and Dybala (5 goals).

 

Key-Facts – Juventus v Ajax

  • Juventus have lost just 2 of their last 9 home matches in the Champions League
  • Juventus will look for a third Champions League win on the trot tonight
  • Ajax have lost 3 of their last 5 encounters against Juventus

 

Ajax Prediction

Ajax will make their way to Torino in confident mood having despatched Excelsior 6-2 in the domestic Eredivisie on the weekend which extended their unbeaten run to five matches in all competitions which included wins against PSV, Emmen and Willem II as well as the aforementioned win over Excelsior.

Ajax have lost just one of their last 17 matches overall in this competition which was a 2-1 loss at home to Real Madrid, and they’ve also produced a string of solid results away from home in the Champions League too.

Ajax are unbeaten in their last eight matches on their travels at this level which include wins collected at Sturm Graz, AEK Athens and Real Madrid but the remaining five matches have seen the visitors draw, with notable stalemates at Bayern Munich and Benfica.

The Dutch club will have previous defeats to Juventus in the backs of their minds though as the hosts have won three of the last five encounters between these two clubs, and they’ll also have the extremely tough job of trying to keep Ronaldo quiet this evening too.

Betting Tips Verdict

After holding Ajax to a draw in last week’s 1st leg in Holland, Juventus should now progress with home advantage here.
