Juventus vs Manchester United Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
One of the best clashes of this round of the elite European competition is ahead of us, as Juventus host Manchester United at the Allianz Stadium, this Wednesday. Judging by the way that these two sides have been playing in the recent weeks, we are in for a real treat full of chances and betting opportunities.
Juventus are placed first in Group H with nine points from three wins. So far on their group journey, they have scored six goals while not conceding a single one. In the previous round, they faced Manchester United and triumphed over them by the result of 0-1. We saw a quick goal from the Italians as Dybala managed to net one in just seventeen minutes into the match. United lacked in almost all aspects of the game compared to their opponents especially when it came to the number of shots, even more so when talking about those which were on target. The general feeling that we were left after the game was that the English side was clueless and without any real idea as to how to grab even a point from this one.
Manchester United hold the second spot in their group with six points from two wins and a loss. Their only loss came in their most recent round against the same opponent that they are facing today. If they plan to do any better, a lot of things will have to be changed in order to achieve that. Their form has been colorful in their domestic league too and it seems as the team is in some sort of a crisis. Out of the previous five matches that they’ve played in front of the home fans, they grabbed two wins, a draw, and two losses.
Out of the previous five matches between these two clubs, Manchester United have won three, and Juventus have won the two most recent ones. Read our betting preview and take your chance to win with our prediction and betting tips.

Juventus vs Manchester United Prediction
Juve welcomes Manchester United and we expect a true football spectacle in Turin. Juventus are in top form and they made it three out of three in Group H, while on the other side United don't play very well. Juve just need a point to secure Champions League knockout phase and they will play strong and aggressive football in defending. United had won the last three matches between the clubs before this season, but this time Juventus are closer to pick up all three points in Turin. After a 1-1 draw in England, we expect another one tough game and it will be a true football battle. Manchester United are not in top form and they must play more aggressive in attack. The Red Devils have lost just four of their last 23 European matches.
However our prediction and betting tips for the match Juventus vs Manchester United Prediction: Draw. We expect match without a winner, but expect to see goals. So, our risky bet goes on Correct score 1-1. We expect from Martial to score a first goal in Turin.
