Forecast and rate
The “old lady” nevertheless began to recover after the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo, but the successes in the meetings with “Spice” and “Sampdoria” were still not sure.
Obviously, Juventus can hardly be called the favorite of the match with the reigning champion of the tournament. Yes, the Blues lost to Manchester City, but in general, defeats have become a rarity for Londoners.
In addition, Chelsea are impressive defensively, while Juve have injured Dybala and Morata, who have scored almost half of their goals this season.
Based on this, we do not expect an overly productive game. Our forecast and bet is “total under 2.5” at 1.76.
You can also take the bet “both teams will score: no”, which is accepted with odds of 1.83.
