Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Thanks to a 1-1 draw with Sporting in Lisbon Juventus moved one step closer to making it to the Champions League knockout stages, the Bianconeri will have to be at their sharpest in their last group game against Olympiakos if they are to get their job done. Juve sit in second place in Group D ahead of the trip to Piraeus and seeing that third-placed Sporting face Barcelona at Camp Nou, there is every chance Max Allegri’s troops will book their place in the last 16. Anyhow, the Serie A giants are not willing to take any chances in Tuesday’s football match against Olympiakos, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. The Bianconeri defeated the Thrylos in Turin earlier in the process and we predict the history is going to repeat itself. You should bear in mind that Juve are on a four-game unbeaten run in the Champions League.

La Vechhia Signora (The Old Lady) is yet another nickname of the club. Juve’s biggest rivals are Torino and the two local rivals take on each other in the Turin derby.
