Champions League: Villarreal vs Juventus - preview, team news, prediction and tips
February 22


Villarreal will lock horns with Juventus in the Champions League last-16 round first-leg tie at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Tuesday. The kick-off is at 22:00 CEST.


Despite experiencing a rather mediocre second season under Unai Emery, who won the Europa League in the Spaniard's first season in charge, Villarreal appear to be in all but perfect form ahead of Juventus's visit to El Madrigal. The Yellow Submarine are on a four-game unbeaten streak in the Spanish top flight right now, including three wins and one draw. The latest 4-1 victory over Granada on Saturday saw Villarreal moving into sixth place in the La Liga table, just three points adrift of fourth-placed Barcelona.

Juventus, for their part, have gone unbeaten in seven straight matches across all competitions ahead of their trip to Spain. Max Allegri's men, however, have failed to claim all three points in their most recent Seire A encounters with Atalanta (1-1) and Torino (1-1) on February 13 and 18 respectively. As a result, the Bianconeri have found themselves in fourth position in the Italian top flight right now, nine points behind leaders AC Milan.

Team news

Francis Coquelin, Ruben Pena and Gerard Moreno will play no part for Villarreal on Tuesday due to injury while Giorgio Chiellini, Federico Bernardeschi, Federico Chiesa and Paulo Dybala are unavailable for the visitors for the same reason.


Given Juve's all injury woes and Villarreal's recent form, it would be no surprise if Emery's men take an advantage in this one ahead of next month's return leg in Turin. What's more, the Yellow Submarine have only lost twice in their last 10 home matches in all competitions, so we'd rather back Emery's men to extend their current unbeaten run to five games on Tuesday.
