Villareal vs Juventus Betting Tips

The Europa League Champions, Villarreal welcomes Juventus for their first Champions League round 16 knockout stage match. This is the first time these two teams will be meeting in a competitive game, and we are expecting a banger.

Juventus seems to have gotten their form back as they have been unbeaten in their recent games. However, their opponents Villarreal have been in decent form as they have not lost in their last 4 games.

Both teams have identical records, but which team would come out victorious in this game? We don’t know yet, but here is the team news and tips for this game.

Villarreal Form and Team News

Villarreal has been decent in their recent matches as they have only lost one game (1-0 loss against Elche), won 3, and drew 1 of their last 5 games. Also, in their last 10 games in all competitions, they have lost just twice, showing the excellent form they have been in this season. 

They qualified for the UCL round 16 after beating Atalanta 3-2 away. What’s most impressive in their recent form is that they have clashed with big teams like Real Madrid and managed to sniff out a 0-0 draw.

For the team news, Villarreal has some players that would be missing this game due to injury, and they are Coquelin, Moreno, and Pena.

Juventus Form and Team News

Juventus started the season in poor form but has found their stride, going a series of matches unbeaten. However, things haven’t been going as planned in their recent matches as they have only managed to win two of their last five games. 

Juventus are 10 games unbeaten in 90 minutes, with their only loss coming at extra-time against Inter Milan. They have won 5 and drew 5 in all competitions and haven’t been able to win their last 2 games.

For the team news, Juventus has some players likely out of this clash due to injury, and they are Chiesa, Dybala, Pellegrini, Rugani, Bernaderschi, Bonucci, and Chiellini.

Our Tipster’s Angle

These teams haven’t clashed in a competitive game before, and it is hard to say how this match would go. In recent games, Villarreal has been in fine form, but they are going against a more vigorous opposition with experience in this competition. 

Juventus have various injury issues, which might affect them in this match as it did with their weekend game. However, they have experience and an experienced manager who can navigate the team to victory.

In all, we think this match would be a low-scoring encounter, and below are our tips for this game.

Tip 1: Under 3.5 Goals

Even though Villareal has been in good form, this match looks like it would be controlled largely by Juventus. Juventus are a conservative and defensive team who love to keep the ball with them and not attack often. 

Juventus has had just 1 game end with over 3+ goals in their last 5 games in all competitions while Villareal has had 4 games end with under 3.5 match goals. 

For this game to end with under 3.5 goals, the odds are 1.20 at the Casumo sportsbook. 

Tip 2: Juventus X2 Goal Handicap

Even though Juventus is in bad shape at the moment, they are still a tough team to crack. They are unbeaten in their last 10 games in 90 mins in all competitions, and we think they will try to maintain their record in this game. 

Also, with the wealth of experience in this competition that the Juventus squad and manager has, we don’t see Juventus losing this game. 

For Juventus to win or draw, the odds are 1.52 at the Casumo sportsbook. 


This match is one of those UCL games where there is no clear pattern of an outcome. Both teams are in similar form, and even though Juventus has a stronger squad, most of the first team players are out injured. 

However, we think Juventus will set up to defend in this game because Villareal is a great attacking team. Anything can happen in this game, but we think Juventus would not lose the match.
