Champions League Predictions – 17-18 September
The group stages of the UEFA Champions League get underway this week with English sides Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City all looking to kick off their qualifying campaigns with a win.
Champions League Predictions
FC Copenhagen (8.50) v Juventus (1.40); Draw (4.20)
Italian champions Juventus travel to Denmark on Tuesday, as the Bianconeri kick-off their UEFA Champions League qualifying campaign against FC Copenhagen.
Antonio Conte’s side have been drawn alongside Real Madrid and Galatasaray in Group B, so the Turin based outfit will be targeting victories in both the home and away matches against the Danish champions.
Juventus have added well over the summer with former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez having made a goalscoring start to his career in Italy, but little has been seen of summer recruit Fernando Llorente who showed good form for Athletic Bilbao a couple of seasons ago.
The Bianconeri will look to control the game in Denmark with the midfield trident of Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba establishing a good relationship in the middle of the park.
Hosts FC Copenhagen have made a woeful start to their Superligaen campaign this term, winning just one of their opening eight games in the league and manager Stale Solbakken will have to galvanise his side if the Byens Hold are to resurrect their season.
FC Copenhagen have not kept a clean sheet in any of their opening eight games in the Superligaen this season and Antonio Conte’s accomplished outfit should secure a vital three points in their opening game in Group B on Tuesday.
Juventus to win @1.40
Juventus to win to nil @2.10
