Our recommended bet for Wednesday’s clash at the Allianz Stadium comes in the form of a Paris Saint-Germain victory over Juventus, featuring two or more goals from Lionel Messi.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £130 with Bet365.
Two of European football’s heavyweights are set to lock horns at the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday, November 2nd, when Juventus play host to French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
The two sides, though, will head into proceedings with altogether different goals in mind.
Visitors PSG, for their part, have already booked their spot in the Champions League’s knockout rounds, owing to a record of three wins and two draws from five outings in Group H.
The latest of these came in spectacular fashion last time out, when Christophe Galtier’s men put a hefty seven goals past Israeli outfit Maccabi Haifa at the Parc des Princes.
And yet, surprisingly, Wednesday’s visitors have still not done enough to ensure themselves of group-topping status, and with it a potentially favourable draw in the next round.
This comes with PSG locked on points with Portuguese giants Benfica, after the two sides could not be separated across a pair of meetings earlier this month.
Safe to say, then, that Lionel Messi and co. will have their sights firmly set on all three points on Turin.
And who would bet against as much coming to fruition, up against a Juventus outfit to have endured a frankly embarrassing European campaign to date?
The Bianconeri, once such a daunting opponent, have bowed out of European football’s elite club competition with little more than a whimper this term.
This comes owing to a solitary victory and four defeats across the club’s five outings to date.
The latest of these arrived last week, when a late comeback effort ultimately came up short, en route to a 4-3 downing at the hands of Benfica.
Juve, in turn, are aware that the best case scenario for their continental campaign is a drop into the Europa League’s knockout stage.
Unable to call on the likes of Paul Pogba, Angel Di Maria, Federico Chiesa, Dusan Vlahovic, Gleison Bremer and Weston McKennie at present, however, securing a positive result up against a PSG outfit fresh off 14 goals in their last three outings looks a tall task.
We at 101 are therefore backing Wednesday’s visitors to ultimately emerge on the right side of the scoreline in Turin.
