What Trueform says for Juventus vs Man Utd
Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed a winning return to Old Trafford by setting up the only goal as Juventus made it three successive wins in Group H at Manchester United’s expense.
United, five points behind Juve at the halfway stage, are now in a battle for second place after picking up just one point from their last two home matches.
The Serie A champions are formidable at home so 8/5 for them to win to nil again is our opening Juventus vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
Juventus maintained their 100 per cent record in this season’s Champions League – and are also yet to concede a goal – after Paulo Dybala struck at Old Trafford.
It had been 15 and a half years since the most decorated sides from England and Italy last met in a competitive fixture, but anyone watching will have been under no illusion who is now in better health.
Juventus toyed with United at times, with Ronaldo, at his old stomping ground, crossing for Dybala’s goal on an evening that sometimes threatened to be far worse than the eventual scoreline.
Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri was pleased with the way his team played to their strengths to cement a virtually unassailable position in the group.
He said: “We knew we would have to play a very good game from a technical point of view because we knew that playing against a team like United, who are very physical, very good on the high balls, we couldn’t really afford to engage in that kind of physical game.
“I thought we played a fantastic first half, we probably should have scored a second goal. In the second half, we did give the ball away on a few occasions but we played well, it was a great game to watch.”
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United’s home loss to Juventus has left them battling with Valencia and Young Boys to secure second place in Group H.
After a 3-0 win at Young Boys on Matchday 1, United have since picked up just one point from two home games, having also been held goalless by Valencia.
They went behind after 17 minutes against Juve, although Jose Mourinho’s side did improve in the second half and former Bianconeri midfielder Paul Pogba hit a post.
The Italian giants held on to move five points clear in Group H, with Mourinho claiming United were always fighting for second place.
Mourinho said: “We played against one of the biggest, really biggest candidates, to win the Champions League and we did the possible.
“We could get the different result, especially because of the way we played in the second half.
“We didn’t especially because Mr (Leonardo) Bonucci, Mr (Giorgio) Chiellini, they could go to Harvard University to give classes about how to be a central defender. Absolutely fantastic.
“I’m happy with the players. Since the draw, we knew it would be a fight with Valencia for the second position and that is what we are going to try.”
Mourinho may well set up his side to frustrate the Italians but the home side can wear them down, so Draw HT/Juventus FT at 16/5 completes our Juventus vs Man Utd betting tips.
Romelu Lukaku will be missing for United, Diogo Dalot is also out and Marcos Rojo has reportedly not travelled, but Marouane Fellaini and Antonio Valencia are back in contention.
