Group A: Juventus vs. Bayern

A must win for Bayern!

Qualification for the round of last 16 – only one of the 2 teams can qualify, the other team will play in Europe League next spring! While Juventus would be through with a draw, Bayern must win the match to qualify.

Both teams performed well in recent League matches and seem to gain back old strenght. Which team can make it?

Prediction:

I tend to bet on a draw – as Bayern is not yet in shape to win this match (I think they are going to play in Europe League next season and winning this competition).

Juventus will play defensive and wait for their change – I guess they will score 1:0 from a conter after Bayern attack and Bayern will equalize in last 15 minutes.

 

my bet is a draw @ TIPICO odd 3.30
