Although they sit bottom of Group B in the Champions League there may be light at the end of the tunnel for Juventus this evening as they are just a single point away from Copenhagen in third and Galatasaray in second and a win this evening will likely put them in prime place to take the second position in the group and move into the last 16 of the Champions League. Galatasaray were beaten 6-1 at home by Real Madrid and are in the Spanish capital this evening so are unlikely to increase their points tally, but can the Italians take advantage this evening and win this Juventus v Copenhagen clash to move into the top two of the group? GR88.com certainly believe so as they lean heavily towards the home win this evening and their Juventus v Copenhagen betting odds reflect their thoughts on this match.

Juventus may be the heavy favourites to win this match this evening, but they will not be confident of taking all three points until they lead at the final whistle following a disaster of a campaign so far. They have played four matches in Group B at this point and they have taken zero victories, drawing three and losing one of the games so far. Both home matches against Galatasaray and Real Madrid have ended 2-2 with the Turkish side scoring late on to claim a point after the home side had come back from a goal down while the exact opposite was true in the Juventus v Real Madrid game. Overall these two draws are the only times they have failed to win in eight on home soil this season, so Juventus certainly have the capacity to win, as shown by them recently going top of Serie A after Roma win all of their opening ten matches, but will they be able to bring this form into the Champions League and take their first win of the season in this Juventus v Copenhagen match?

The Champions League away days have not been comfortable for Copenhagen this season as a 4-0 bruising away at Real Madrid was followed up with a 3-1 defeat in Turkey at the hands of Galatasaray, but they will be confident of avoiding defeat against the winless Italians this evening despite their massive underdog status. They are in reasonable form of late with four wins and two draws in their last six games in all competitions, but will they be able reverse their away form in this game? They have lost three and drawn two of their last five games on the road and have not kept a clean sheet since May, 14 away games ago. Can they upset their away form and the GR88.com Juventus v Copenhagen betting odds to claim something from this match?

Despite Juventus’ winless form in the Champions League this season and the 1-1 draw secured at home by Copenhagen this season, our football expert does not see Copenhagen being able to take anything from this match. Juventus are too big of a club and too good to continue going without winning in this competition, especially as their overall home form suggests they can do much better. As such, our man in the know is backing a comfortable home win in this must win Juventus v Copenhagen match.

GR88.com predicts Juventus will win by at least three goals (Juventus -2.25) @ 1.87.
