This Champions League fixture sees European royalty Juventus host continental minnows Ferencvaros at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday night. The Old Lady eased to a comfortable victory over the Green Eagles a few weeks ago, and are looking to repeat the trick here.

Last time: Alvaro Morata hit a brace before Paolo Dybala added a third, with an own goal and late consolation for Ferencvaros rounding off the scoring in a 4-1 Juventus win in Hungary earlier this month.
Juventus v Ferencvaros Predictions and Preview
Juventus were a class apart from Ferencvaros when the teams met in Budapest in early November, and there’s little to suggest the Hungarian champions will fare any better this time round. The Serie A giants may be struggling for form under new coach Andrea Pirlo, but their squad is far beyond the quality of their visitors here.
The biggest hope for the Green and Whites would be if Pirlo decides to rest a raft of key players, with this fixture representing the easiest in Group G for Juventus. The Bianconeri are playing catch-up to table-topping Barcelona after losing to the Catalan outfit at the end of October, with the return against the La Liga side surely going to decide who finishes first in this section.
Juve are such heavy favourites for the victory in this game, there’s little value in backing them in the outright market. The Old Lady are 1/10 to beat Ferencvaros, which is relatively pointless aside from perhaps including the result in a multi-leg Champions League accumulator for this latest round of fixtures.

Juventus to win by 3 goals
Juventus to win 3-0
Ronaldo to score first
In the search for value, it’s best to look at adding further legs to a home win in order to boost your profits. A Juve win to nil, for example, looks a lot more tempting at 8/13. If you do fancy Ferencvaros for the upset, you can back the visitors at a massive 35/1 in the latest Champions League odds.
Even a draw in this game is priced at 11/1, which would be an incredible result for the away team. At least they will have a near fully-fit squad to choose from for this game, with Eldar Civic the only player who’s doubtful for Sergiy Rebrov’s side coming into these Juventus v Ferencvaros predictions.
The hosts, on the other hand, could be missing as many as six players. Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Paolo Dybala and Aaron Ramsey have all been struggling with various injuries, while Adrien Rabiot and Federico Chiesa are also doubts too. Even so, Juve should have little trouble recording a comfortable victory in this game.
One to watch for Juventus: Cristiano Ronaldo only scored one goal in three appearances for Portugal during the international window. He’s yet to score in this season’s Champions League after only playing once, and is 7/4 to open his account by breaking the deadlock in this game.
One to watch for Ferencvaros: Franck Boli has three Champions League goals to his name this term, including the late consolation against Juve a few weeks back. The Ivorian is 18/1 to notch the last goal of the game once again, or 9/2 in the anytime scorer market.
