Juventus vs Monaco Betting Preview

Juventus were too strong for inexperienced Monaco in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final and it is difficult to see much difference in the return fixture in Turin.

The Old Lady stopped the Ligue 1 leaders from scoring at home for the first time since November 2015, putting the Turin giants in pole position to reach the Champions League Final.

Juventus kept their ninth clean sheet in 11 Champions League matches this season in their 2-0 victory over Monaco last week, and will look to their mean back line to see them through the second leg as well. You can get (2.30) with SportyBet for Juventus to keep a cleansheet and (2.72) for win to nil.

Coming from their 2-0 first-leg win at Stade Louis II last weekend, Juventus are clear favourites to win on the night this week as well. They are yet to be defeated at home this season and have won their previous 17 matches at home in all competitions. You can get (1.68) at SportyBet for Juventus to win this game and reach a second final in three seasons.
