The streak has certainly improved the team’s confidence after a wobbly start to the year and tough losses at the hands of Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund. Can the German outfit maintain their undefeated run and keep the tie alive ahead of the reverse outing on home soil?

Juventus have been on a fine run of form themselves, going unbeaten in seven straight outings across competitions before falling 1-0 at Roma on Sunday evening. Nevertheless, it was the match from which I Bianconeri did deserve much more than a loss, having been the more dangerous of the two outfits throughout the 90 minutes of play in the capital. We’ll now take a look at our top betting picks and predictions for this match.

Juventus vs Freiburg Betting Tips

Serie A deducted 15 points from Juventus due to administrative reasons, significantly hurting the team’s domestic ambitions. The aforementioned defeat in Rome further affected those ambitions, leaving I Bianconeri seven points adrift of the top six positions in the league ladder. This only adds on the significance of Juve’s European run granted Europa League is probably their only ticket to the Champions League football next year.

Freiburg are still well in contention for the top four finish in the top flight of German football. They currently occupy the fifth position in the Bundesliga standings, sitting level on points with fourth-placed RB Leipzig. Head coach Christian Streich can generally be pleased with his team’s performances since the beginning of the season. Freiburg have been particularly strong in defense of late, allowing no more than two goals in the previous five matches in all competitions.

Juventus won three of the last four games

Juventus have been scoring goals for fun all up until the defeat at Roma. Even in that match Massimiliano Allegri’s troops produced chances in the final third. Knowing they have bagged seven goals in the previous back-to-back victories over Nantes and Torino, we have reasons to expect a strong showing form La Vecchia Signora on Thursday evening. We expect the hosts to dominate the pitch from the start to the end which is why we will take the 8/5 odds offered for Juventus to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end.

Our top pick for Juventus vs Freiburg

Di Maria bagged a hat-trick against Nantes in France

Freiburg are unbeaten in the last five fixtures across competitions but they did not quite shine in the recent outings against Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach, scoring just once in the process. Juventus have big names capable of shining in the big games. Angel Di Maria completed a hat-trick in the knockout stage playoffs tie against Nantes, while Dusan Vlahovic is still among the best strikers on the planet. Looking at the bookies’ expectations, we are very much tempted by the 12/5 odds offered for Angel Di Maria to score anytime.
