Juventus vs Freiburg predictions and betting tips on March 9, 2023
On March 9, Allianz Stadium (Turin) will host the 1/8 final match of the Europa League, in which Juventus will compete with Freiburg. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The club can finish the season successfully, even despite the 15-point penalty. Nowadays, it is not the team that managed to lose even to Maccabi in the Champions League in the autumn. It seems that the higher mentioned stress only rallied “the Bianconeri”, and they were able, after a slight decline, to reach their peak again. Nevertheless, it will be difficult to achieve the 4th place. Thus, the only chance to appear in the Champions League in the next cycle is to win the Europa League. This was directly stated in the winter by Massimiliano Allegri in one of his interviews. There, however, the first pancake is a bit tricky, and the grandee could not beat Nantes at the home arena in February. However, a trip to France resulted in a confident and solid solution – the underdog was defeated with a 3-0 score.
The club has recently been able to reach a fairly high level. Speaking about the previous season, Christian Streich’s wards were more than close to a complete triumph. They reached the final of the DFB Pokal but lost to RB Leipzig there. At the same time, the team finished on the 1-win distance away from the higher mentioned “Bulls”, which were in the 4th “Champions League” place in the Bundesliga. Still, there are chances to repeat these successes, or even improve them – “the Brazilians from Breisgau” seem to be decent and continue to struggle for both tournaments. Moreover, the German club also played in the Europa League in the autumn. There, being in the company of Nantes, Olympiacos and Qarabag, the team started with 4 victories, and only in the end had the draws in the battles with the opponents from Greece and Azerbaijan. As a result, the group stage brought the 1st place in the quartet, which allowed the team to overcome the round of 1/16 finals.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Freiburg rarely plays in the European tournaments. There is no surprise that it will be its first match with Juventus.
Bookmakers believe that “the Old Signora” will not step on the same rake again. We bet that more experienced Italian grandee will win in the following battle (odd: 1.65).
