Juventus vs Zenit St Petersburg

, KO: 20:00 Nov 2, 2021, Allianz Stadium
Zenit St Petersburg

Juventus have looked a very different side in the UEFA Champions League this term compared to their poor Serie A form this season. The Turin club are looking to maintain their 100% record in the competition and should get the job done against Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday night.

Juventus do not head into Tuesday’s clash in the best form having lost their last two Serie A matches. They suffered a 2-1 defeat against Verona last time out with Weston McKennie's late efforts not enough to save them from a slow start.

The good news for Massimiliano Allegri is that Juventus’ form in the Champions League has been in stark contrast to their displays in Serie A. They have won all three of their matches in the competition, including a 1-0 victory at Zenit St Petersburg last time out.

Juventus’ impressive showing in the Champions League has been driven by a solid defence which is yet to concede a goal in the competition.

Zenit St Petersburg appear to have successfully moved on from the defeat in the reverse fixture to Juventus and travel to Turin off the back of two straight wins in the Russian Premier League. First, they overcame Spartak Moscow 7-1 before claiming a 4-1 victory over Dinamo Moscow last time out.

Sergey Semak's men have lost two of their three Champions League matches and are playing catch-up to Chelsea and Juventus in Group H.

Zenit St Petersburg’s general record in the Champions League has been poor with this year’s 4-0 win over Group H whipping boys Malmo their only victory in 10 matches, stretching back to 2019. They have also lost their last six away fixtures in the competition, scoring just two goals in that run.

How the bookies view it

Head to head
