Barcelona will once again try to make Champions League history on Wednesday, as they attempt to mount another comeback at home against one of Europe’s top teams.
Here are the latest odds from Bovada:
Barcelona vs. Juventus Odds
Spread: Barcelona -1 (-145), Juventuss +1 (+120)
Moneyline: Barcelona -220, Juventus +500, Draw +400
Total: Over 3.5 (Even), Under 3.5 (-120)
Let’s be clear: Barcelona’s comeback against Paris-Saint Germain was not supposed to happen.
Barcelona caught a few tremendous breaks in the final minutes, and PSG missed enough chances for Barcelona to complete the unthinkable. That’s not saying it won’t happen again, but the odds are incredibly unlikely.
Especially when you start to compare PSG’s defense against the back line of Juventus. Luis Enrique said earlier this week that his team’s objective will be to score five goals, but Juventus has only allowed two goals in all of Champions League play this season.
If you’re backing Barcelona, that means you believe in the magic of Camp Nou. Barcelona have won 15 straight Champions League matches at Camp Nou, scoring 50 goals while only conceding seven. That being said, Juventus scored a 2-1 victory on the grounds during their last trip in 2003.
It was never about Barcelona when they completed their amazing comeback. It was all about the Paris collapse, and that won’t be happening this time around.
Best Bet: Under 3.5 goals (-120)
