Juventus vs Lyon Soccer Betting Prediction

It’s the big comeback of European competitions!

While the Europa League will open the ball this Wednesday, August 5, and will act as “first part”, the queen competition, the Champions League, will resume its rights this Friday, August 7 with the round of 16-second leg which had been canceled in March latest.

If OL scores, or achieves the same defensive performance as in the Coupe de la Ligue final against PSG (0-0), then qualification will be all the more possible. Still, the Turinese do not hear it that way, they who have once again been crowned Italian champions and have been coasting since the officialization of their title. During the 38th day, a certain Cristiano Ronaldo even withdrew! Certainly to be 100% for this European deadline, and the next possible ones to come.
