What Trueform says for Man Utd vs Juventus
Manchester United will welcome prodigal son Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford when Juventus visit in the Champions League.
The Portugal star has previously returned to haunt his former team when playing for Real Madrid and will again attract plenty of attention in this crucial Group H clash.
However, his current club do not have a great record in England, so we think they may settle for a draw at 12/5 and that is our opening Man Utd vs Juventus prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United got their European campaign off to a flying start when beating Young Boys 3-0 in Switzerland, with Paul Pogba bagging a brace that night.
Jose Mourinho’s side then laboured to a goalless draw with Valencia at this venue, though, putting them back under a bit of pressure ahead of the double-header versus Juve.
“It’s two points dropped,” admitted defender Luke Shaw. “In the second half, we had a 20-minute spell where we were on top but couldn’t break through. The Juventus game is now massive.”
Mourinho was more pragmatic, describing it as: “Not a good result…but not a bad result either.”
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
Juventus brought in Ronaldo to help end their 22-year wait for a third Champions League triumph, having lost out in the 2015 and 2017 finals.
However, they have done pretty well without him in the first two rounds of fixtures.
Ronaldo was sent off after 29 minutes when Juve travelled to Valencia, before Miralem Pjanic struck twice from the penalty spot in a 2-0 win.
The five-times Ballon d’Or winner was then suspended when Young Boys visited Turin, but Paulo Dybala stepped up to the plate with a hat-trick as the Old Lady secured a 3-0 success.
With Juve’s quest for an eighth straight Serie A triumph going along splendidly, they will clearly be formidable opponents.
However, a record of just four wins in 22 games in England is worrying and puts us off taking a shortish price for them to prevail here.
Instead, we’re adding 6/1 for a 1-1 stalemate to our Man Utd vs Juventus betting tips.
