Atletico Madrid vs Juventus Torino (Champions League, 01.10.2014)

Atletico-Madrid-vs-Juventus-01-october-2014-prediction

Vicente Calderon hosts the match between last year’s runner ups, Atletico Madrid and Juventus Torino, set to make a better impression than last year. History shows that Juve won four out of five matches against Atletico, but that was a long time ago, and in recent history these two teams have not yet played against each other.

Atletico come from a defeat in the first round of the group stage and now look forward to improving their record against Italian teams. They won their last five matches against Italian opposition, and Diego Simeone does not look keen to trade that. In La Liga, Atletico are on the third place, two points behind the leaders, after conceding two points in the 2-2 draw against Celta. The latest result is a 4-0 win against Sevilla, where Koke, Miranda, Godin and Mandzukic are keeping the team set in all areas.

Juventus are enjoying an unbeaten run in Serie A, and hope to extend it also in Champions League, even if their injuries might prevent them from doing so. Massimiliano Allegri is implementing a new more attacking style, but might have to be without Caceres and Barzagli, while Pirlo is still a doubt. Pereyra is returning from suspension and while Arturo Vidal has scored in all of his last five matches in Champions League, while Tevez netted a brace in their latest Serie A match.

One might argue that Atletico are not displaying the same quality as last year after the transfer of Diego Costa, but the same could be said about Juventus who are still trying to convince everybody they are up to the tasks on European football stage. Juve are not expected to dominate possession in key areas of the field, as Atletico might impose pressure should they start in a four midfield starting eleven.

We are betting 8 units on an outright Atletico Madrid win at 2.20 with William Hill, while Juventus Torino get 3.60 odds. A draw is at 3.10 and the headline offers include: Mandzukic to score and Atletico to win at 4.00 and Tevez to score and Juventus to win at 6.00 odds. Both teams to score has 2.10 odds, and Atletico Madrid to win both halves at 6.50. The same betting market for la Vecchia Signora is at 13.00 and over 2.5 goals has 2.50 odds with William Hill.

Manchester City vs AS Roma (Champions League, 30.09.2014)

Machester-City-vs-Roma-30-september-2014-prediction

Etihad Stadium makes way for another interesting Group E match where Manchester City have to win against AS Roma in order to keep a grip on the qualification places. The English champions are doing quite well in Premier League, but they lost their opening match against Bayern Munich, and now look towards the match against Roma as means to be better in front of their own supporters.

AS Roma have won all their matches in Serie A, have conceded only once, but the Citizens have a purpose and are playing on home grounds. Rudi Garcia stated that, “All the pressure is on them. They need to get a result at their home ground.” Roma played without Daniele De Rossi, sidelined with injury, but City have been without Nasri, even if Toure has been displaying a good form. City come from scoring 11 goals in just two matches, but the players know it won’t be that easy with Roma.

Should this match finish in a draw, at 3.75 with Ladbrokes, the Citizens will find themselves on the third place in the group, which will work against them in the long run. Manuel Pellegrini stated his side would not drop anymore points in Europe. Joe Hart will be called up to the squad once again, after the last two matches saw caballero in the goal for City. Sergio Aguero and Edin Dezko should be your choices for the goalscorer market, and the good news from the Citizen’s camp comes from Jovetic who is set to make a return to the squad.

Francesco Totti did not manage to score or win any match in his last several visits to England, and Leandro Castran is sidelined for this match with a neck problem, which will see him join Iturbe and Astori on the unavailable list for the visitors.

An outright Man City win is at 1.66 odds with Ladbrokes, A Roma one at 5.00 and Sergio Aguero to score first is at 5.50. Both teams to score at 1.72, a goal line of +1,5 at 2,04 and Manchester City for both halves at 2.45. AS Roma for both halves is at 8.00 odds, while we’re betting 7 units on Roma winning either half at 2.75 with Ladbrokes.
