Champions League matches are always great for betting. This Wednesday, you have a good chance to win some money with a little help from this Juventus vs Manchester United prediction. Keep on reading to find out which team is likely to win, how many goals we should see, and so on. So, let’s start!
The team that reached the final of the champions League two times in the last four years is now much stronger than it was in the past. Juventus are strong in all areas, but their attack is what stands out for a single fact – that’s where they have Cristiano Ronaldo!
Even though he had a kind of slow start, Ronaldo has been their best player this season. He’s scored 7 goals already, 4 of which happened last month. CR7 is in a fantastic form at the moment, but he’s far from being the only player that deserves the praise.
The entire team has been playing great this whole season, so it’s not surprising that they’re without a defeat since losing to Real Madrid in the International Champions Club in early August. Actually, since that loss, they won all but one game. And the game in question is the draw they played with Genoa some two weeks ago.
Juve fans have nothing to worry about their team’s form, but they do have the right to be concerned about their fitness. The thing is that several players from the middle are injured, which puts pressure on the others to run more than usually. But, that didn’t seem to bother them last weekend when they routinely beat Cagliari 3:1.
The Red Devils have plenty of problems in the Premier League, so they might not be 100% focused on the Champions League match with Juve. They’re currently on the 7th place in the league and could’ve been even lower if they hadn’t scored a late winner last weekend against Bournemouth. That was their 5th game in a row in which they failed to keep a clean sheet.
And that’s actually their main problem this season. Even though their net is protected by one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Man United defenders aren’t too great. And it really shows. This team has allowed 18 goals in the Premier League after only 11 rounds. That’s even more shocking, considering that they’re managed by Jose Mourinho, the manager famous for “parking the bus” in front of the goal.
Of course, the defensive problems wouldn’t be so huge if the Red Devils were good at keeping the ball in their possession. But, their midfield has been sluggish in defense and very uninspiring in the attack. Therefore, their attackers rarely get in goal chances. It seems that they are not gonna get too many of them on Wednesday evening.

Juventus vs Manchester United Prediction
If Manchester United lose this, the things can get even more complicated. Their Champions League future will be at risk, especially if Valencia beat Young Boys in the other match of the Group H. So, the Red Devils will definitely have motivation to do well in this game and considering that Juve will be without several key men, they will fancy their chances.
