Juventus to win to nil

Reason For Juventus VS Genoa Betting Tips

Juventus completed a remarkable feat in midweek, as they knocked Barcelona out of the Champions League without conceding a goal. The Italian champions are yet to concede a goal in the knockout stages, which has seen them installed as 2/1 second favourites with Bet365 to win the European Cup. That would certainly be a fantastic achievement for Juve, a side who are desperate to reinstate themselves at the very top. However, they need to focus on domestic action on Sunday, with Genoa visiting Turin.

This Genoa side has changed rapidly since their 3-1 win over Juve earlier this season. They’re now fifth from bottom, and they reinstated the manager who led them to that shock success just last week. Ivan Juric returned after being sacked in February, and he took advantage of a tired Lazio side to claim a point for the Grifone. However, they head to Juventus Stadium having lost 69% of their league matches on the road.

Not only that, but the Grifone have failed to score in 56% of their trips, averaging just 0.75 goals per game on their travels. Given how Juve shut down Barca’s brilliant forward line over 180 minutes, taking on Genoa should feel like a stroll in the park in comparison. There is a high standard for the hosts to maintain at the back, as they’ve kept a clean sheet in six of their last eight home league matches. They’ve not conceded in their last four outings, and this should be a fifth straight clean sheet for Juve.

The champions have kept a clean sheet in half their games, while they’ve got a 100% record at J Stadium this term. It’s difficult to see a way for Genoa to end that run, especially given their recent history in Turin. In their last three trips to face Juve, the Grifone have lost all of them, failing to score a goal. We’re backing that run to continue, as the hosts move another step towards the Scudetto. Juventus to win to nil is our tip, at 4/6 with bet365.
