Juventus vs Manchester United Betting Tips
To reach the classification regardless of the result of the duel involving Valencia and Young Boys, which is scheduled for 15.55, Juve needs victory. If the game in Spain ends in a draw, the equality is enough for the Turin side to secure their place in the second round of UCL (Uefa Champions League) two days in advance.
Although this does not happen it is difficult to doubt that Juventus will be in the knockout stage of the tournament. Just see the consistency of good results achieved by the team. On Saturday, November 3, also at Allianz Stadium, the team, without much strength, scored 3-1 in Cagliari in a match for the eleventh round of the Italian Championship. It leads the dispute with 31 (11 wins and a draw) points conquered of the 33 possible.
Juve still has not lost in the season. It has been unbeaten for 19 matches. There were 17 successes and two similarities in the period started on April 28, still in the 2017/2018 season, with a 3-2 win in the Serie A Internazionale in Milan.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri has a relatively large number of medical doubts for Wednesday’s showdown. The defender Giorgio Chiellini is in the infirmary; the socks Emre Can, Douglas Costa and Blaise Matuidi; and the attackers Federico Bernardeschi and Mario Mandukic.
Three wins, two draws and one defeat – just against Juventus. This is the recent retrospective of Manchester United. It may seem little – and really is – in comparison to the Italian team. However, when compared to what was presented the English team is an evolution.
Such improvement is merely in the field of results. When it comes to performance, the situation has not changed significantly. On Saturday, November 3, the team led by Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho showed great difficulties to overcome, away from home and upset, Bournemouth by 2 to 1.
He reached 20 points (six games, two draws and three losses). It occupies the seventh place in the English Championship. He is behind just Bournemouth, who has the same score, but takes advantage of the goal difference.
The setting is not surprising. Scoring without playing well has always been a tonic in Mourinho’s teams, including the champions. What surprised on Saturday was the absence of the Belgian center-forward Romelu Lukaku, absolute head of the team. He suffered an injury in the match against Everton, but was not considered a problem for the game. The club did not provide further information regarding the injury. Thus, the top scorer also became problem for the game this Wednesday.
It is not the only doubt. Defenders Diogo Dalot and Antonio Valencia; and midfielder Maroune Fellaini, who are in the infirmary, must also undergo a new evaluation that will determine if they can be available to the coach for the confrontation.

Manchester United and Juventus were group mates in the 2002/2003 edition of the Champions League. United won both home (2-1) and away (3-0). Then they only met again in a friendly in 2008. There was a goalless draw.
Juventus’s injury problems are not only greater in number, but affect players who most significantly affect team performance. This ends up reducing the team’s favoritism. It is not, however, enough to prevent the prognosis in the win of the Italians being the best option for the match.
