JUVENTUS v BAYERN MUNICH BETTING PREVIEWJuventus's 15-match winning run in Serie A came to an end at the weekend as they were held to a goalless stalemate at Bologna last Friday. Anyway, they still have a one point lead over Napoli as the Partenopei only recorded a 1-1 draw against AC Milan. In Champions League, the Bianconeri finished second in Group D behind Manchester City with Sevilla and Monchengladbach missing out. They beat the Citizens home and away and were already assured of a place in the knockout rounds when they lost 1-0 at Sevilla on Matchday 6.
Italian international defender Giorgio Chiellini will miss out through injury and this will be a huge blow for Massimiliano Allegri given that defenders Alex Sandro and Martin Caceres and midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah all remain sidelined. Former Bayern striker Mario Mandzukic is doubtful and could be replace by Alvato Morata up front, where Paulo Dybala looks sure to feature.
Bayern Munich have won 29 of the 36 matches that they have played in all competitions this season. They came from behind to beat Darmstadt last weekend and now Guardiola's men held a double digit points lead over Dortmund. In Champions League, they finished top in Group F ahead of Arsenal with five wins and just the one defeat whilst Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb missed out. Anyway the Bavarians have won only two of their last seven road games in the Champions League, losing four.
The Bavarians will once again have a makeshift defence and Mehdi Benatia could come into the starting XI at centre-back. Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez are ruled out. Philipp Lahm and Thiago Alcantara are both expected to come into the side in place of Rafinha and Kingsley Coman. Franck Ribery and Mario Gotze shaked off muscle problems but Guardiola may be cautious of throwing them straight into the starting XI for such a big game.
Bayern have won their last 3 matches against Juventus in all competitions. Juventus have won 14 of their previous 22 home matches against German opposition (D3 L5), while Bayern have won seven, drawn three and lost nine of their 19 games in Italy.
