Juventus v Monaco Preview & Team News
The Bianconeri have a huge week ahead of them. First of there is the return in the semi finals of the Champions League, in which Juve defends a comfortable 0-2 away win at Monaco. Decided by two goals from Higuain, his first two goals ever in the knock out stages of the Champions League. Higuain to score again versus Monaco is quoted at 5/6 with Bet365. Next up this weekend is the clash with AS Roma, which could land Juventus the title in the Serie A.
Juve looks set to make it into another Champions League final. The Bianconeri haven’t lost a match in this season’s Champions League. So far they played 11 matches, of which 8 were won and 3 ended in a draw. Add to this that the Juventus back line only had to eat 2 goals in these 11 matches, and only a total meltdown can prevent them from qualifying.
Last Saturday night, the Turin derby versus Torino was played. The match ended in a 1-1 draw, with Juve scoring an almost trademark last minute equalizer by Higuain. Juventus sported an almost fully rotated starting XI. A sign Massimo Allegri isn’t going to take any chances for their return match against the French Ligue 1 leaders. Expect Juventus to start with similar line up as they did in their away match. Why change things that aren’t broken?
Massimo Allegri doesn’t have any major injuries to deal with apart from Daniele Rugani, who still is reported to be out due to an ankle injury.
For Monaco things look grim. At the end of an incredible season it seems that reaching the last 4 in the Champions League is what the French side has to settle for. Beating Juventus in it self is already hardly doable, but to also make up 2 goals at the Juventus Stadium just seems to be impossible. Juve have not lost in this year’s Champions League and haven’t conceded more than 1 goal in a match. Bet365 pays 20/1 for Monaco to still make it into the final.
Monaco comes of a 0-3 away victory at Nancy, while resting Mbappe and Bakayoko. The fight for the title in the French Ligue 1 is still in full contest, as PSG is just 3 points behind with 3 matches to go for Monaco. Following after their match against Juventus are two home games, versus Lille and St. Etienne, in which Monaco can secure their domestic championship.
Leonardo Jardim looks to have the same players to his disposal as last week. Boschilia is reported to be out and Touré seems to be uncertain.

Juventus v Monaco Betting Tips & Predictions
The most important factor in my betting prediction in this match up is the Italian defense. And although Monaco has the most potent attacking force of Europe, the first leg has shown what kind of paralyzing influence guys like Bonucci and Chiellini have on any strike force. You can also add the experience factor to this, as Monaco thrives on the talent of youngsters like Mbappé, Lemar and Bakayoko. Juventus on the other hand is a collection of veterans.
I expect Juventus to be their usual self, and do nothing more than strictly necessary, and Monaco just a little too weak to put 2 or 3 past Buffon. My best free betting tip for Juventus v Monaco is under 2,5 match goals. My long shot match result prediction is: Juventus v Monaco to finish 1-1.
