Juventus to extend their winning start

Juventus’s quest for a first Champions League title since 1996 continues as they are on a perfect start to the 2021/22 campaign. Notably, La Vecchia Signora had three different coaches in the last three seasons. However, the current coach Allegri came closest by reaching the final in the 2016/17 edition. And, with the way Juve started this season, Allegri might be eying another successful run.

Significantly, Juve’s win over Chelsea on matchday two is very impressive. Despite the reigning UCL champions’ great form this season, Allegri’s adopted defensive system managed his team to come on top. To illustrate, Chelsea had better ball possession and more goal attempts. Nonetheless, somehow Allegri won the match by relying on the counters.

Zenit St. Petersburg looking for a positive result in Turin

This is the second time Zenit play against Juventus in the same group in the UCL. The last time was during the 2008/09 season when they lost in Turin 0-1 and drew in St. Petersburg 0-0. However, during the last round, Zenit lost to Juventus 0-1 at home but actually had more attempts at goal.

The 2008 UEFA Cup winners, know if they can finish third of group H and thus qualify for the Europa League. But a good result in Turin, and still to host Chelsea in St. Petersburg, the Zeniters can have the ambition to finish second. However, Zenit’s away form is not encouraging as they are winless in their last five trips in all competitions.

Juventus vs Zenit St.Petersburg Prediction

After winning in St.Petersburg in the last round, Juventus are favorites to win again with bookies paying 1.43.  Moreover, the bookies expect Allegri’s men to score first with odds of 1.36 for that to happen. But a shaky form at home against teams who come to Turin to defend might raise Zenit’s hopes.

To explain, despite beating teams like Chelsea Roma and Sampdoria, Juve lost to Empoli and Sassuolo. Surely, if Zenit adopt the same tactics those teams did, they can cause trouble for Allegri.

As for our prediction, we will back under 3.5 goals combined with a double chance outcome at Vbet. To explain, the last three matches of Juventus and two out three matches of Zenit in the UCL saw under 3.5 goals.
