No Champions League Draw No Drama. Or not?
Without Champions League Draw Group D, it is expected that today's matches will be held. Barcelona is a surefill champion and awaits the draw for the eliminations. The Catalonians achieved 3 wins and 2 draws in their march to the top. However, the bustle of Juventus' lost season is still somewhere deep inside them. I expect today to approach their match with Sporting. The Catalans pulled the pace and made 4 draws in their last 7 games. The wobbling points of the pursuers in La Liga Keeping them secure on the top, but the lead slows down. Real and Atletico made up their lagging behind. Barca will host Villarreal's strong team over the weekend. The hosts are in an unpleasant series of 2 consecutive losses, so the match will be extremely heavy for Barcelona.
Losing from Juventus in April was quite painful. Defeat with 0: 3 in Turin on the Champions League quarter-finals left the team out of the tournament. That's how it can not be remembered. The Catalans are a team with traditions and will be difficult to succumb to any schemes. No wonder, however, to look at how the other meeting unfolds. In the case of Juventus' failure in Greece today and the victory of Sporting over Barca, the old lady will leave the tournament of the rich. Moreover, the Catalans needed an own goal in the first match in Lisbon to get the minimum win.
Juventus is in a familiar setting. In the 2014 year, they needed at least a tie in their last match to move Olympiacos to second place. But then the Greeks had won at home with 1: 0 Old Lady. Today the team will play freely but will also fight for their name. Only 1 won point is not the taste of the players. The fight in the Greek Super League is also in full swing. The first 4 teams are collected only within 3 points. After Olympiacos's elimination, today the team has no serious motive in the game but will use every opportunity at their stadium.
I'm expecting tactical fights today. Barcelona will not throw in attacks, but will keep its players for the long season. In 3 only the match during the season until the time of the team have been scored over 3,5 goals. I'll bet on under 3,5 hits in the match at a factor of about 1,72 of 1xBet.
Juventus will face difficulties in Greece. Olympiakos are extremely strong at home, and the Torrians are not in their top form. The old lady had a very hard game as a guest at Napoli in Series A. The team will continue and after this decisive game they will accept the new leader in Italy - Inter. That, as well as the fact that from 3 guest in Greece, Juve have only a minimal success with 2: 1, makes me think that today's bet on 1 with handicap + 1,5 goal for Olympiakos is good, especially at a factor around 2 in 1xBet.
