Let’s check the latest news, stats, injury reports, and Champions League odds for Juventus vs Villarreal. We’ve plenty of predictions for you to consider.

It’s unlikely to be enough to put them into contention for a Serie A title as they are currently seven points behind leaders AC Milan, but they look to be heading in the right direction. They are the team to watch and include them in your soccer picks and parlay for every single domestic league match. Juve’s Dusan Vlahovic needed no more than 32 seconds of European action to find the back of the net on the continental stage, but an injury-hit team could not maintain the one-goal lead.

Weston Mckennie, Federico Chiesa and Kaio Jorge have all long-term injuries and are out for the season. Meanwhile, Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Denis Zakaria are expected to return sometime during this week. Also, Paulo Dybala is doubtful with his hip flexor and his return date is still unknown.

Villarreal: Dangerous in Attacking Third

Villarreal’s 1-0 weekend win over Celta Vigo saw them climb to the seventh spot in the Spanish top-flight league and in line for another European position. Going all the way in the Europa League is Unai Emery’s bread and butter, but Villarreal will travel to Turin as the +330 underdogs to advance to the quarterfinals of Europe’s elite competition according to the latest soccer odds, after failing to take full advantage of Juve’s injury woes in the first leg.

The Yellow Submarine has been up and down since playing out that 1-1 with the Old Lady, destroying Espanyol 5-1, going down 1-0 to Osasuna, and scraping past Celta Vigo last weekend courtesy of another second-half effort from Dani Parejo. Left back Alberto Moreno is out for the season with a knee ligament rupture. In addition, defender Juan Foyth and Ruben Pena are injured as well. In attack, Paco Alcacer has a muscle injury and Gerard Moreno is recovering from a muscle injury himself but could be fit for Wednesday.

Juventus vs Villarreal Head-to-Head

The 1-1 draw from the first leg marked the inaugural clash between Villarreal and Juventus in any continental competition. The Scudetto chasers are now unbeaten in 12 successive games across all competitions since their Super Cup heartache against Inter Milan back in January, winning each of their last four. Juventus suffered last-16 exits in each of the last three editions of the Champions League and has not advanced further than the quarterfinals since falling at the last hurdle to Real Madrid in 2017.

Only twice before has Villarreal managed to make it as far as the quarterfinals in the UCL, most recently doing so in 2009 before being knocked out by Emery’s old club, Arsenal.

Juventus vs Villarreal Prediction

If you’re betting online, you should know that the price of nearly plus money on Juventus is begging to be backed. It’s difficult to avoid betting on a side that’s slowly making progress and is unbeaten in 12 games, but Villarreal knows what it takes to get the better of Italian sides on the road, coming up all guns blazing in a 3-2 thriller against Atalanta back in December. That crucial Group Stage win offered them a spot in the Round of 16.

Massimiliano Allegri prepares to welcome several big names back to the team, but the Spanish team is a dangerous outfit. They have nothing to lose and they are ready to pull off another upset. We expect some sort of caution from the Italian side, which is ready to control the rhythm and doesn’t offer too many spaces at the beginning of the match. Villarreal is very dangerous on set pieces and is fully packed with creative players. We expect them to find the back of the net.

Pick: Both teams to score (-115)
