|Juventus win 1.33||Draw 5.50||Maccabi Haifa win 8.00|
Juventus have won two of the same number of games against the away side and didn’t score in both matches, so they are clear favorites here.
The team is expected to show a solid display at home, but a clean slate looks unlikely.
Meanwhile, Maccabi have only scored one goal in the Champions League and failed to score in their last two away matches in different competitions.
Lack of goals could ruin them again, so a Juventus victory could be.
Prediction for this match: Both to score.
- Juventus win with a handicap (-1.5).
