UEFA Champions League picks for Villarreal vs. Juventus
Before you tune in to Tuesday’s match, you need to see the Juventus vs. Villarreal picks from SportsLine’s European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated well over $37,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Villarreal vs. Juventus, Green is backing Villarreal draw no bet at -125 odds. Villarreal has shown impressive form over the last few months, posting a 9-2-2 record over its last 13 games in all competitions. That includes three wins and a draw over its last four, with the draw coming versus Real Madrid, which tops the La Liga table. Villarreal will also benefit from being able to rest many of its key players last Saturday, and even with a shorthanded squad, the team still dominated Granada by a 4-1 score.
On the other hand, Juventus comes into Tuesday’s game severely depleted, both on its backline and with its attackers up front. It will have to go without leading scorer Paulo Dybala, as well as Federico Bernardeschi, who only trails Dybala on the team in assists. Juventus will also be without Federico Chiesa, who ranks third on the team in goals per 90 minutes. Additionally, Green points out the various injuries to key Juventus defenders and having an undermanned unit isn’t the recipe for success on Tuesday.
“Defensive stalwarts Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini are both injured right now, along with fellow center-back Daniele Rugani,” Green told SportsLine. “Brazilian full-back Danilo is suspended, leaving the Juventus defense seriously depleted.”
