Freiburg vs Juventus – Betting Preview
Juventus is making an effort to turn their season around after experiencing a number of defeats. They are committed to competing to the end in the Europa League since it may be their only chance to earn a spot in the upcoming Champions League.
Freiburg is now suffering from a lack of consistency. They have just lost quite a few league points, and they also lost the first leg of this two-game series.
In the second leg of the Europa League final 16 match between Freiburg and Juventus, all eyes will be on Europa-Park Stadion. If Freiburg wants to advance to the quarterfinals, they must defeat Juve by a significant margin on Thursday.
Freiburg lost by the slightest of scores in the first leg and kept their chances alive for a shock result in the return leg. FFC have not lost in the group stage of the Europa League winning four and drawing two. Playing at home, Freiburg scored an average of 1.80 goals per game.
The home team doesn’t have any new injury concerns, but Philipp Lienhart and Daniel-Kofi Kyereh are still in the medical room.
Juventus still have work to do in the second leg after winning 1-0 in the first leg in Turin. The Bianconeri have lost two of their last ten away games in all competitions. Juve’s biggest defeat was against Napoli by 5-1, other than that they are averaging 0.25 goals conceded playing on the road.
The Bianconeri, will be expected to take a defensive stance this time around since they are desperate to maintain their slender lead in the return leg.
After coming off the bench in a 4-2 victory over Sampdoria, Juan Cuadrado and Manuel Locatelli should both be reinstated to the starting lineup. Moise Kean is also available after serving his domestic suspension. Ales Sandro, Pogba, Milik, Di Maria, and Chiesa are all expected to be out due to injury.
In this one, Juventus would be content with a goalless draw!
