Monaco v Juventus – Over 8.5 corners @ 1.72 (Bet365) – 3 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)
People would have felt that Juventus stole a 1-0 victory was a smash and grab job at home; but they are really in good form if they were able to secure that victory.
This weekend I flew down to Turin from Dubai, and watched Juventus play Lazio and the way they put in a solid professional performance clearly showed to me that they should win this game or in the worst case secure this game, and should definitely qualify. The defense of Juventus has been extremely solid for most of the season led by Bonucci, Barzagli and Chiellini who have been solid in most of the games that they have played all campaign and they have only conceded 1 goal in their last 9 competitive games. Up front you have Carlos Tevez who is in great form in addition to the supporting case including Vidal, Pirlo, Morata, Llorente and Marchisio.
Monaco have been struggling in recent weeks winning just 1 game in their last 6 games in all competitions. They have also been struggling for goals during those last few games, and that would showcase the struggles that they are having. The team are quite decent on the defensive end, which has seen them only concede less than 3 goals in 8 of the 9 Champions League games that they have played in so far.
Juventus definitely have the depth and should make it to the Champions League Semi-final for the first time since 2003. I am backing them on the Asian Line to do the business.
