Juventus vs Lyon Prediction
Juventus to Win to Nil – 11/8 at bet365.
Cristiano Ronaldo Anytime Goalscorer – 4/7 at bet365.
Juventus clinched the Serie A title by a single point after the restart. In the Champions League, they topped their group ahead of Atletico Madrid, going unbeaten in the process. A surprise 1-0 defeat to Lyon in the first leg leaves them with work to do.
Lyon finished in seventh place in Ligue 1 after the season was ended abruptly and decided on points per game. The French side finished second in their Champions League group, trailing RB Leipzig by three points. They have played just one competitive game since March.
Juventus have been playing competitive football since late June which could give them the edge in terms of match sharpness. Six wins, six draws (after 90 minutes), and two losses in the league and cup isn’t their best form of the season but they have done enough to win each. Expect to see the Italian giants overturn their first-leg defeat to progress to the last eight.
Manchester City vs Real Madrid Prediction
Manchester City to Win – 7/10 at bet365.
Both Teams to Score – Yes – 8/15 at bet365.
Manchester City finished their Premier League season in strong form, brushing aside most sides with ease. Pep Guardiola’s side topped their Champions League group after going undefeated, including a 5-1 win over quarter-finalists, Atalanta.
Real Madrid won the La Liga title after the restart, beating Barcelona by five points. They won ten successive league games after the restart and have yet to lose. The Spanish side finished second behind PSG in their group, failing to beat them home or away and drawing with Club Brugge.
Real may have the better form on paper but they have only faced Villarreal from the top five sides in La Liga. Their European form suggests that Manchester City may have a good shot at progression, especially with the form of Kevin De Bruyne.
