On Wednesday, February 26, in the first match of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League, the French Lyon at the Olympic Lyon Park will receive the Italian Juventus. The game starts at 23:00 GMT.
The championship of France is not successful for Lyon - after 26 rounds, the team of Rudi Garcia takes only seventh place in the table. Lyon are four points behind the Europa League zone, and the third Lille has already come off by six points. In the last round, the team defeated the Mets (2:0), thus obtaining the first victory in the last five matches of the championship.
In Serie A, things are not going so smoothly for Juventus - despite the fact that they are the leader of the championship, the team still cannot afford to relax. The second Lazio is only one point behind, and Inter has six points less and it has not played his match in the 25th round. In the last meeting, Juventus easily dealt with SPAL, beating the opponent (2: 1) on his field.
The same can be said about Juventus, which is quite reliable in defense and does not take risks without special need - the “Old Lady” will probably hold today's match in its traditional style and will achieve the result it needs.
In our opinion, the hosts will not be able to win and the match will not be productive. We offer a combined forecast - Juventus will not lose + total is less than (2.5) goals (2X And TU 3.5 - Yes).
In 1x bet, such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.64
