Juventus Champions League Final Preview

Juventus 2016-2017 Betting Trends

They call Juventus the Old Lady; The Old originates from the irony of calling something old when the team's name derives from the Italian word for youth and Lady because of the men's undying love for the team as if it were their eternal partner.

Juventus also go by the nickname the Bianconeri; much less romantic as it simply illustrates the team's colors - Black and White. And the Old Lady is putting together one of the most impressive Champions League runs we've ever witnessed.

In 12 Champions League games in both the group and knockout round Juventus are undefeated going 9-3-0. In those 12 games they have only allowed 3 goals in total.

That includes keeping 2 clean sheets against Barcelona. They have trailed for an astonishing 38 minutes out of 1,080 minutes played. Juventus has a total aggregate score of 21-3 against their opponents. They pretty much do everything right, and seeing as how their top goalscorer in the competition, Gonzalo Higuain, has 5 goals, it is proof of how balanced this team is in all aspects.

Pjanic and Dani Alves lead them with 3 assists. Gianluigi Buffon has played 11 of the 12 games and has only had to make 21 saves in total meaning that he facing less than 2 shots per game.

And as one might guess when you allow such few attempts on goal that would indicate not many high scoring games. The over/under 2.5 goals has gone 4-8 for Juventus in this year's competition.

So with all that being said there is one bet that deserves some attention. 

Juventus to keep a clean sheet is going at +225 on Bet365 and perhaps with good reason. Their opponent is Real Madrid, twelve time winners of this competition. And Cristiano Ronaldo, the most prolific scorer in the history of this competition is staring them in face.

Champions League Final Clean Sheet Odds

But having kept 9 clean sheets so far and having only allowed 1 goal in their last 700 minutes of Champions League football makes this a a great value bet.
