PSG vs Juventus Betting Tips: The Juve/Draw Double Chance tempts
PSG vs. Juventus Odds
It may not involve any of the British sides but the PSG vs. Juventus game will attract plenty of interest from football fans and punters alike this Tuesday night. With some holidays among the team, we’ve once more dragged Neil Monnery into doing some work and he’s chiming in with his thoughts on this one...
PSG vs. Juventus Betting Tips:
Coming into the season, PSG were always going to have all eyes on them. Ever since they were able to keep Kylian Mbappe in Paris with a quite mind-boggling contract offer, winning the Champions League clearly became the overwhelming priority. They have started their domestic season in flying form scoring 24 times in six games whilst only conceding four times. They’ve won five of their six league games, with Monaco the only side to stop them taking home all three points. Even in that one, PSG had 67% possession and took 18 shots at goal.
Christophe Galtier must be absolutely delighted with what he’s seen so far since taking over in the summer and wouldn’t you be when you can roll out Mbappe, Messi and Neymar as a front three? Being in charge of PSG is a bit like playing Football Manager these days and several midfielders have been added to the squad in the summer to give them deep squad depth.
Over in Italy however things aren’t all sweetness and light for Juve but they are still rock solid at the back. Five league games in the books and they’ve only seen the ball hit the back of their net twice. Wojciech Szczęsny is still out with injury so Mattia Perin will continue to deputise for their number one in goal.
Leonardo Bonucci hasn’t been seen since the Serie A opener with the veteran defender out with a persistent calf problem but it looks like that he’ll be available for this one. I do feel as though they will need his experience against the array of attacking talent that the home side have on offer.
Up top they’ve only scored seven times in their five league games with Dusan Vlahovic netting on four occasions. The 22 year-old Serbian international is one of the best young players in world football and if Massimiliano Allegri’s men are going to come away from France with a point or three - he is going to be key.
All logic indicates that the home side should win. They are 5/1 with BetFred to win the Champions League whereas their opponents are 33/1, that alone should give a good insight into how the bookies think they’ll do this season. Logic however isn’t the be all and end all.
Juventus have long been a top class side and they have an outstanding manager who can set them up for success in big games. When they lost in the Round of 16 last year to Porto on away goals it was a pretty big shock. They had won all three of their group games on the road including a 3-0 victory in the Camp Nou so to get them on a Double Chance at 23/10 with Betfair and Paddy Power is a price I like.
I also think the 33/10 on offer from SBK for Dusan Vlahovic to score anytime is a value play. He’s found the back of the net in three of his five league games and is the Juventus penalty taker. That is an implied probability of 23.3% and he has a better chance of scoring than the odds suggest.
