Juventus are meeting sports betting experts’ expectations and sit atop of the Serie A table. They have a 7-point advantage over Roma. What’s more, they are on the 6-match winning streak. In the Champions League the Old Lady have easily got past Sevilla, Lyon and Dinamo Zagreb. Last season Max Allegri’s side were eliminated from the European competitions by Bayern Munich in the round of 16, but this time the Bianconeri are considered to be a huge overdog on the betting markets.

Before choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that the Dragons have never defeated Juventus in their three previous attempts. In addition, Juve have won 7 of their last 11 encounters with the Portugese teams. The betting experts mention that Porto have no selection concerns while Allegri will miss Chiellini and Barzagli. In spite of having 7 wins in the Primeira Liga in a row, it will be very difficult for the Dragons to beat the Old Lady.

The bookmakers are convinced that Juventus will get past this stage: 1,25 against 4,15. As for the first leg, Juve are also considered to be a favorite: Porto – 3,75, Draw – 3,20, Juventus – 2,25. It is recommended to bet on the “Total Goals by Away Team over 1” (1,72). Besides, there is a good bet “Juventus or Draw and Total Goals under 3,5” (1,61).
