Juventus vs Villarreal Head-to-Head Prediction and Preview | UCL 2021/22
Juventus go head-to-head with Villarreal in the second leg of the Champions League at Turin tonight.
Juventus vs Villarreal Head-to-Head Preview:
The Bianconeri have turned their fortunes around this season after a massive dip in form at the start of the campaign.
From being in the last 16 places to finishing inside top four, Juventus have shown tremendous improvement and are only seven points behind first-place AC Milan.
They have also boosted their forward line with the purchase of Dusan Vlahovic, who has bagged four goals in his nine appearances for Juventus.
He was the only player on the scoresheet in the first-leg against Villarreal and will be ready to make the same impact on Wednesday.
While Villarreal have had their fair share and will need to punch above their weight as they face one of the toughest opponents of Europe. They will be playing on their turf, which will add more problems to their poor form.
