Time for Juventus to grind out another win?
<div><h2>Juventus vs Bayer Leverkusen</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-champions-league/juventus-turin-vs-bayer-04-leverkusen-3894490/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Tuesday, October 1, at Juventus Stadium</a></p><p>Italian champions Juventus will be desperate to take all three points when they host Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday. They have won Serie A for the last eight season in a row, but the Champions League is the one they really crave. They have brought in superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to help them achieve that goal, but they crashed out in the quarter-finals last season. They began this year’s campaign with a 2-2 draw away at Atletico Madrid, and now they will be keen to assert their superiority over Bayern Leverkusen.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Maurizio Sarri opted to field Aaron Ramsey at the tip of a midfield diamond as Juventus beat SPAL at the weekend. Sam Khedira and Adrian Rabiot sat behind him, with Miralem Pjanic in the holding role. Blaise Matuidi has been operating as a makeshift left-back, as Alex Sandro is in Brazil following the death of his grandmother and. Sandro could return in time for this game. Juan Cuadrado has been playing at right-back, as Danilo and Mattia De Sciglio are injured, so it is a bit of a patched up Juve defence right now. Giorgio Chiellini is also out, leaving Leonardo Bonucci and Matthijs de Ligt at the heart of the backline. Ronaldo is expected to partner Paulo Dybala up front.</p><p>Bayer Leverkusen returned to winning ways with a 3-0 triumph over Augsburg at the weekend. That was their second consecutive victory and it catapulted them up to fifth in the table. They have plenty of firepower, with wingers Kevin Volland and Kai Havertz looking particularly dangerous. They could cause Juve problems down the flanks in this game, but the Italian side should boss the midfield and grind out victory in this game.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Bayer Leverkusen suffered a shock defeat at home to Lokomotiv Moscow in their Champions League opener. That result leaves them in danger of finishing bottom of a strong group. Juventus are below strength right now, but they should still dominate possession in this game and battle to victory. They have a great match winner in Ronaldo, while Dybala and Ramsey are also dangerous, so they should secure victory. They are priced at 1/50 (1/2) to do so and that looks good for an accumulator. None of Juventus’ last five games have gone over 4.5 goals, nor have any of Bayer Leverkusen’s, so throwing that into the mix looks like a great way to squeeze some more value out of this game.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Coral">Juventus to win and under 4.5 goals at 1.85 (17/20) with Coral</a></strong></p></div>
