Juventus secured a 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon in their first Champions League Group D clash but may settle for a point in the return fixture in Portugal.
The Turin encounter was a tight, hard-fought affair and Sporting will hope that home advantage can now even things up.
We’re kicking off our Sporting Lisbon vs Juventus betting predictions by taking 23/10 for a draw at Jose Alvalade.
A Look At Sporting Lisbon’s Betting Odds
Sporting got off to a flying start in this pool when racing into a 3-0 half-time lead at Olympiakos and held on despite conceding a couple of very late consolation goals.
They were then only edged out by a Sebastian Coates own goal against Barcelona at this venue and put in another spirited display at Juventus, even if the Old Lady were worthy winners.
“The result wasn’t positive for us but once more Sporting demonstrated that in a one-off game against one of the best teams in the world, we were not inferior,” said coach Jorge Jesus. “We are not out of this yet.”
Defender Cristiano Piccini added: “I think that in the return encounter, with our supporters behind us, we will have a chance.”
Looking at the Sporting Lisbon vs Juventus odds, we like 29/20 for the hosts to score first for the third time in four European fixtures.
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
Having reached two of the last three Champions League finals, Juventus were left a little shell-shocked by a 3-0 loss at Barcelona in this season’s group-stage opener.
However, the Italian giants showed their European pedigree by recovering with a 2-0 defeat of Olympiakos in Turin before coming from behind to beat Sporting.
“Sporting were very good and disrupted our rhythm,” admitted Douglas Costa. “In the end, we earned what was a very important win.”
Miralem Pjanic added: “We knew they are very hard to beat, they are very organised and we expect another difficult game in Lisbon, probably even more difficult than here.”
We reckon 29/2 for the hosts to lead at half-time but then the scores to finish level is fair value for our Sporting Lisbon vs Juventus betting tips.
