Juventus vs. Villareal: The Old Lady hosts The Yellow Submarine in a Winner-Takes-All

Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

Max Allegri’s juggernaut continues to roll on. The next potential victim of Juve’s resurgence is Villareal, who they play at home in Turin for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie. Juventus will take on Villareal on the 17th of March, 2022, at 01:30 IST.

Juventus are on a 12-match unbeaten run in all competitions, winning 8 and drawing 4 in that period. This is their second match in the knockout stages without Cristiano Ronaldo in three seasons, who they signed to help them win the Champions League. They host Villareal in a crunch tie after the first leg ended in a 1-1 stalemate in Spain.

On their part, Unai Emery’s men travel to Italy with only one mission— to cause an upset and eliminate a superior Juventus side from the Champions League. The stage is set for another round of Champions League football, and only the winner on the night will progress.

Teams Status

Take a look at the latest form and team news for Juventus and Villareal:

Juventus Form and Team News

Juventus are on a marauding run, unbeaten in their last 12 matches in all competitions and winning the last 4 in a row. The coming of Dusan Vlahovic has certainly energized Allegri’s side, and they are in great form going into this encounter with Villarreal.

Their excellent performances have seen them rise to 4th in the league, just 7 points behind AC Milan in 1st position. They have played themselves into the race for the Scudetto again, and it is interesting to see how things will turn out over the coming weeks. They have enough star power in their side to win this encounter, with Vlahovic and Morata finding form in front of the goal recently.

Ahead of Villareal’s visit to Turin, Juventus will be without Kaio Jorge, Federico Chiesa, Weston McKennie, and Paolo Dybala, who are sidelined with injuries. Also, Dennis Zakaria, Leonardo Bonucci, and Giorgio Chiellini are expected to return from injury this week but are most likely to sit out this tie.

Villarreal Form and Team News

Villareal began the season promisingly, but a run of mixed fortunes has seen them lose pace somewhat in La Liga and overall. They remain in the running for European qualification but are now in 7th position, 4 points behind Real Betis, who are in 4th.

In Europe, the Yellow Submarine has not been entirely convincing but will fancy competing against this Juventus side after earning a draw in the first leg. Their 2 losses in their last 10 games came in away matches, so they have to be careful to avoid a repeat.

For their team news, Villareal continue to miss Paco Alcacer and Ruben Pena, who have sat out their last 14 games due to injury. Alberto Moreno joined them on the sidelines after he ruptured his cruciate ligament.

Tipster’s Angle

The first leg was only the first competitive meeting between these two sides, so there is not enough history to look at. Juve are unbeaten in their last 5 games at home, winning 4 and drawing 1. Villareal have a mixed away record, with 2 wins and 3 losses in their last five games on the road. They also failed to score in 2 of those losses. Here are our tips for this fixture:

Tip: Juventus To Qualify @ 1.47

Juventus have superior experience, talent, and are bigger than Villareal, at least on paper. While football largely defies odds, Juve play at home, where they are unbeaten in their last 5 games and are on a 12-match unbeaten streak. Of the two sides, they are more likely to progress to the next round. Juventus to qualify is available on the Sportsbet.io sportsbook at 1.47 odds.

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.36

The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw, which means both teams go into this encounter on a clean slate. Only a win is good enough for either side, and we expect any side that establishes a 1-goal lead to go for the second goal to seal the tie. Over 1.5 goals is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.36 odds.


The Old Lady will host the Yellow Submarine in a free-for-all encounter, and we expect an exciting football game with multiple goals on the night. Will there be a major upset? We can only wait to find out.
