Tip Reasoning

  • Villarreal have scored nine times across their last four matches
  • Seven of Juve’s last 10 games have seen both teams score
  • Danjuma has scored four goals in the Champions League this term and hit a hat-trick at the weekend

Another banana-skin for Juve

Europa League holders Villarreal are into the last 16 of the Champions League and they’ll be hoping their European experience can help them into the latter stages. The Yellow Submarine are seen as outsiders in the tie against Juve, but this is another tricky clash for the Italians.

Juve have been upset by Ajax, Lyon and Porto in recent Champions League campaigns, with the Old Lady going through an underwhelming season under Max Allegri. Things could get even worse for them with another last 16 exit in Europe.

Hosts hitting form

Villarreal have won seven of their last 10 league games and they head into this one with three wins in their last four. During that run the Yellow Submarine have scored nine times, while they also held league leaders Real Madrid to a draw.

Juventus have seen their form pick up in 2022, but they did drop points at home to Torino on Friday night. The Old Lady have seen both teams score in their last three games, while BTTS has landed in seven of their last 10.

Back goals at the Ceramica

Villarreal had an entertaining journey to the last 16, with 21 goals scored across their six group matches. Only Swiss side Young Boys failed to score against them, so you’d expect a Juventus side who struck first in five of six group games could break through here.

This is a tie which probably would have been cagier had the away goals rule been in force. Villarreal boss Unai Emery would have been wary of the Italians’ threat, but with no away goals to worry about and given the Spaniards’ strong away displays in their group back them to take risks here. Both teams to score is my first selection in this clash.

Danjuma to threaten Juve

Arnaut Danjuma has made the jump from Championship to Champions League in style this term. The Villarreal forward has been directly involved in five goals in six games, scoring four times and providing an assist.

That is already the highest combined tally of goals and assists recorded by a Villarreal player in a Champions League campaign. After his weekend hat-trick, back him to score against Juve.

Meanwhile, the visitors are unbeaten within 90 minutes in 2022, but they have drawn three of their last five games. A 1-1 draw is my correct score prediction, especially as the Spaniards know they can be a threat on the road.
