Juventus News and Form – Can Juve rediscover home form?

It was a 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid that Juve took to start their amazing. They followed that up with a comfortable home success over Bayer Leverkusen. The win over Leverkusen that Juventus took was only their second win in their last seven fixtures in the Champions League (D2 L3). They had a sharp exit last season as Ajax beat them in the quarter-finals.

The Italian champions picked up a win in three of their five home games last season’s group stage (L2). That was the first time ever that Juventus had lost more than one home fixture in a European campaign. So their usual high standards have waned somewhat. Juventus have scored five goals in their two games played this season, and on home, soil are red hot favourites.

It has only been four losses that Juventus have suffered in Europe, from 39 games played at the Juventus Stadium (W23 D12). That is a great record, however, three of those four defeats have come inside their last seven home games. They hold a 100% home record against Russian visitors, winning all three previous such fixtures. This will be their first home game against a Russian team since 2008.

Lokomotiv Moscow News and Form – Can Lokomotiv prevail in Turin?

Lokomotiv got themselves a good 2-1 win at Leverkusen on matchday one. That was some success for them too because it was their first win on the road in the competition since 2002. Between the two away wins, Lokomotiv had gone D4 L9. If they were to go and win in Turin in midweek, it would be an even bigger success for them, given their poor road form. They then lost against Atletico Madrid.

It was a bottom place finish last season that Lokomotiv took in the group stage of the Champions League, finishing behind Porto, Schalke and Galatasaray. They lost five of their six matches played in that campaign. A win over Galatasaray on matchday five last season, saw Lokomotiv snap a six-match losing streak in European games.

It has been five defeats in their last fourteen away games in Europe (W5 D4) and last season they lost all three of their group stage away games. This will be their first trip to Italy since a visit to Palermo in 2005 when they played out a 0-0 draw. Lokomotiv’s record is D3 L3 in their last six trips to Italy, drawing their last two. Lokomotiv have only taken one win against Italian opposition, holding a W1 D4 L6 record overall.
