After landing yet another winner on Monday, SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Juventus’ crunch Champions League clash with Porto on Tuesday.
Juventus vs Porto (Tuesday, 20:00)
The Champions League last-16 tie between Juventus and Porto remains finely balanced ahead of a second-leg showdown in Turin on Tuesday night.
The Old Lady fell to a shock 2-1 defeat in Portugal three weeks ago, meaning that they must overturn a first-leg deficit to avoid a shock early exit from the competition.
Porto are 10 points off the pace in the Portuguese Primeira League, but they have avoided defeat in each of their last six Champions League assignments.
Sergio Conceicao’s side have considerable pedigree in this tournament – the Blue and Whites famously lifted the trophy back in 2004 – and despite their first-leg triumph, Juventus will be considered favourites to advance from this tie.
Whether or not Andrea Pirlo’s posse progress remains to be seen and I’m once again going to swerve the match result market and instead dip into the Bet Builder feature.
The 10/11 (Bet 365) combination that has caught my eye on Tuesday night is over zero Juventus goals, over three Juventus corners and over one Porto card.
Juventus have won each of their last seven Serie A home matches and it’s worth mentioning that Juve have made the net bulge at least twice in each of those successes.
What’s more, the Italian giants have notched up two or more strikes in 10/13 league matches at the Allianz this term, while Porto have recorded just two clean sheets across their last eight matches in all competitions.
With that in mind, coupled with the fact that Juventus are entering must-win territory here, I’m more than happy to back the star-studded hosts to hit the back of the net on Tuesday night.
In order to boost the Bet Builder price, I’ll add in over three Juventus corners – the hosts are averaging over six corners per game at their Turin base this term and given their greater need for goals here, I’m happy to side with at least four Juventus flag kicks.
I’ll complete the Bet Builder by backing the visitors to receive two or more bookings during this contest – Conceicao’s crew have clocked up two or more cards in five of their last six European road trips and they could revert to the dark arts when trying to defend their delicate lead in Turin on Tuesday night.
