Juventus V Nantes

Ambitions for European glory are always at the top of the list for any club. Still, Juventus, investing heavily to be competitive in the Champions League for years on end, find themselves in the Europa League as they line up against French opposition Nantes FC. The French outfit, at the time of writing, are ranked in 13th place in Ligue 1. Finishing second in their respective group after beating Qarabag with a singular point.

A fragile team who heavily relied on Angel Di Maria for inspiration were put to the sword by Benfica in the Champions League. Injuries to key personnel have certainly dented their aspirations under the new tenure of Max Allegri, and for the longest time during this season, Juventus looked lacklustre. Despite all the negatives, they are well within the shout of qualifying for Champions League football next season. 

On paper, the tie should be dominated by Juventus, but in various games in Serie A, their creative hub in midfield were unable to unlock defences that sit deep and absorb the pressure. The first game will be played in Turin, which might help ease off some pressure from the Italian club should they claim a positive result. An early exit from this competition as well won’t be beneficial both in terms of confidence and for the financial rewards of progressing through the stages.

Juventus are priced at 1/3 (1.33) to win the game in Turin, with the home side scoring a goal in both halves is priced at 5/4 (2.25)


A team that has had its fair share of turbulence in the previous months, ranging from manager change to a poor disciplinary record. In their previous five matches, they are unbeaten, drawing three and winning the other two without conceding a goal. This run of form suggests that better times might be on the horizon for Antoine Kombouare. 

One of the main points to improve for the French team is discipline off the ball and picking their moments when pushing to attack. That would be the ideal game plan for Nantes FC as they look to build momentum in what has been a very stale season for the Yellows. The cards are stacked against them as LV BET is pricing a win for Nantes at 9/1 (10.00), but a more attainable 0-0 draw is at 6/1 (7.00).

We are eager to witness what is in store in this tie as we have a very favoured side coming up against a somewhat struggling team. Stranger things have happened in football, but our betting tip for this match is a Juventus narrow win of 1-0 at 22/9 (3.45)
