Juventus vs. Ferencvaros Champions League Betting Odds:
Juventus vs. Ferencvaros Prediction:
This is the second match between Juventus and Ferencvaros since a meeting on November 4 for the third matchday. Juventus flew to Hungary and were in full control for a 4-1 victory. It wasn’t particularly close, with Juventus netting 9 shots on goal as opposed to only 3 for Ferencvaros. As is usually the case with Juventus, they played fundamentally sound football to clear Ferencvaros easily.
Precision passing was on the menu, as Juventus successfully completed 90% of their passes in that contest. Alvaro Morata was the main attraction for Juventus, as he scored at the 7 and 60 minute mark. Ronaldo played a backseat role in that match and Juventus still defeated Ferencvaros easily.
In Juventus’ most recent match, they looked even deadlier with Ronaldo who was in better form after shaking off the rust. They were the easy winners over Cagliari by a final score of 2-0. Juventus peppered them with a total of 24 shots towards the net with 6 hitting the target. The defence was spectacular for Juve, as they didn’t allow a shot to reach the goalkeeper. It was an easy day at the office for Gianluigi Buffon.
Ferencvaros has posted a 5-1 loss against Barcelona, 2-2 draw against Dynamo Kiev, and 4-1 loss against Juventus thus far in Champions League competition. They are coming off a 1-0 win over Honved, and continue to lead in the top-flight of Hungarian football with a record of 7-2-0 and 23 points. That’s great, but Ferencvaros are not equipped to deal with Juventus and Barcelona in the Champions League. This should be a comfortable 3-0 win for the home side on Tuesday.
