Betting tips Juventus vs. Young Boys

Juve’s foot off the gas

The early kick off on Tuesday sees Juventus take on BSC Youngs Boys at the Allianz in Turin. It’s only matchday two but Juve are going into this with a few setbacks.

There’s no doubt they’ll go for a win but probably by playing at a more leisurely pace. Young Boys on the other hand will look to get as many behind the ball as possible. Both factors will keep it a low scoring game.


The Bianconeri have already taken their grip on Serie A, and in the first round of the Champions League notched up a more than convincing victory over Valencia. But what’s usually the case is that Juve don’t really get into gear until the spring, and in the autumn months they usually play at a more relaxed pace.

Juventus haven’t been rolling over teams

Having said that, Juventus have all the raw ingredients to win both Serie A and the Champions League this season. In attack they have Dybala, Ronaldo and Costa; in midfield, Can, Matuidi and Pjanic, not to mention a battle hardened backline. In every position they have a ready and willing replacement on the bench.

The boys from Turin have won all their matches this season and there’s no reason to suppose the trend will be broken against Young Boys. But it should be taken into consideration that this season Juventus haven’t been rolling over teams. In 5 of 7 wins they’ve only scored 2 goals.

Juventus are missing Ronaldo, Costa and Khedira, three key starting players. This will have an impact on the number of goals they will score, and they’ll be looking to keep it tight at the back.

BSC Young Boys

9 wins out of 9 in their domestic league, top of the table and 12 points ahead of second place FC Zürich, it’s obvious that Young Boys know how to play football. On top of that they’ve only let in 6 while scoring a whopping 32.

We’ll be seeing a more defensively balanced Young Boys

In their first Champions League outing they went down 0-3 at home to Manchester United, although there were definitely some positives to take away from it. The Swiss side were aggressive but allowed the match to be too open - a mistake they won’t make twice against Juventus. We’ll be seeing a more defensively balanced Young Boys side.

On top of that they’re missing some key offensive players, so like Juventus there will be more focus on keeping it tight at the back.

Match Tips

This one will be a comfortable victory for Juventus, but with a number of injuries and suspensions the necessary rotations they’ll have to make will affect their offensive line up. At the same time, Juventus don’t need to stress goals. The home team will win but it will be a low scoring affair.

That’s why I’m going for Juventus to win with under 3.5 goals in the match with Bethard for decent odds of just over 2x the money at 21/20
