PREDICTION Juventus vs. Olimpiakos Piraeus: Old Empress Old Lady
Juventus have a great chance to grab their first point in the Champions League group phase against Olimpiakos Piraeus at J Stadium on Thursday (28/9) Situs Judi Bola. This Greek club should be a soft opponent of the Old Lady.
Juventus started the Champions League with a negative result, they defeated 3-0 at home to Barcelona. However, in Serie A their performances are consistent with wiping out all points to date (six games). Including a convincing victory at Derby della Mole, 4-0 against Torino. This certainly adds confidence Juventus ahead of the game against Olimpiakos.
The visitors themselves appear less convincing this season. Their start was good with two consecutive wins, but after that they failed to win (two draws, one defeat). The last they lost 3-2 against AEK Athens in the Super League. Approaching away to J Stadium is not good results.
Dybala again showed himself as the main star of Juventus in a 4-0 win against Torino. The 23-year-old scored twice in the derby. In total this season, he has scored 10 goals in six matches in Serie A. Nothing wrong Juventus chose him to be their goal machine this season.
When CSKA Moscow’s attackers struggled to score, there was a young player who could be counted on, Fortounis. In the Super League, he scored three goals from three games. Unfortunately in the Champions League this playmaker has not received full confidence for just playing 46 minutes. His consistent performance deserves to be awarded confidence against Juventus.
Juventus is somewhat problematic with the back line at the moment. They still can not be strengthened Mattia De Sciglio and Benedikt Howedes. In addition, Sami Khedira and Claudio Marchisio are still doubtful to appear in this match.

Olimpiakos also have similar problems. They also have to play without two mainstay defender Alberto Botia and Jagos Vukovic due to injury.
Max Allegri switched from three defender formations and four defenders this season, but it looks like they performed superbly with four defenders. With four defenders, Juve can take advantage of Alex Sandro’s speed on the left side, giving Douglas Costa more freedom into the opponent’s defense.
Juventus (4-4-2): Buffon; Lichtsteiner, Benatia, Chiellini, Sandro; Cuadrado, Pjanic, Bentacur, Costa; Dybala, Higuain
Olimpiakos Piraeus (4-2-3-1): Kapino; Elabdellaoui, Romao, Engles, Figueras; Odijdja-Ofoe, Gillet, Marcela, Fortounis, Marin; Đurđević
Juventus are unbeaten in 19 home games in the Champions League, a record that is certainly extraordinary. And on 4 September 2014 Juventus also beat Olimpiakos 3-2 in Turin in the Champions League group phase. But they lost 1-0 in Greece. This is the only meeting between Juve and Olimpiakos before this match.
Now Juve appear more consistent and not just a matter of defense, but they are also fertile on the front lines. So far in Serie A Juventus have scored 19 goals from six matches and conceded only four goals.
Juve start was bad in the Champions League this season, losing 3-0 against Barcelona. But Olimpiakos also suffered a 3-2 defeat at home against Sporting CP. Predictably Juventus will win 3-0, what about your prediction?
