The first round of the 2022-23 UEFA Europa League knock-out stage close down Thursday, February 23, so we are breaking down the second leg from Stade de la Beaujoire where Nantes host Juventus.  

Nantes – Juventus Betting Tip, Prediction & Odds (23.2.2023)

After pulling off an upset in the first leg at Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy, Nantes hope to grab a huge win in front of the home audience and make it to the Europa League Round of 16. Juventus, on the other side, want to bounce back from a 1-1 home draw against Nantes, as they upset the fans as huge 1.33 favorites. 

Nantes – Juventus: Initial Situation 

The winner of the second leg will proceed further, and the losing team is done with European football for the season. Nantes are having a disappointing domestic campaign, and it’s a similar story with Juventus. 

Nantes Stats & Form

The Canaries are 13th in French Ligue 1 at the moment. They’ve won two of their previous three league games to make some ground in the relegation battle. Last Sunday, Nantes lost to Lens 3-1 on the road, and the Canaries were obviously focused on Thursday’s clash against Juventus. Lens dominated Nantes for all 90 minutes, handing the Canaries the second loss in 13 games in all competitions since the World Cup break. 

Hereof, it’s fair to say that Nantes have improved over the last couple of months. The Canaries are without left-back Quentin Merlin (abductor), while backup striker Ignatius Ganago (four goals in 24 apps) is questionable to play versus Juventus due to personal reasons. Keep your eyes on striker Mostafa Mohamed and attacking midfielder Ludovic Blas, who have scored eight goals in 2022-23 apiece.

Juventus Stats & Form

The Zebras have won three straight Serie A games and are still nine points behind the Europa Conference League qualification spot and 12 points behind the top four teams in Italy. During their winning run, Juventus haven’t conceded, outlasting Salernitana 3-0 and Spezia 2-0 on the road and Fiorentina 1-0 at home. The Zebras are now unbeaten in five straight outings in all competitions. 

Manager Massimiliano Allegri cannot count on five players because of injuries. The list includes Arkadiusz Milik, who’s scored eight goals so far this season, and Paul Pogba, who’s still recovering from knee surgery. Dusan Vlahovic leads the way for Juventus with ten goals in 21 appearances, while Filip Kostic is the team’s top assist-maker with eight dishes in 31 games.

Nantes – Juventus: Head-to-Head

Last Thursday, Dusan Vlahovic gave Juventus an early lead, but Nantes escaped with a draw thanks to Ludovic Blas, who scored in the 60th minute on Mostafa Mohamed’s assist. The Zebras outshot the Canaries 15-7 and kept the ball at their feet for 57 percent of the time. It was the first meeting between these two clubs since 1996 when Juventus eliminated Nantes from the UEFA Champions League.  

Nantes – Juventus Odds

The Canaries were arguably lucky to avoid a defeat in Turin. Hereof, the bookmakers favor Juventus over Nantes. They also anticipate a low-scoring affair, and the Over 2.5 Goals sits at 2.28 on Unibet Sportsbook.   


Betting tip and prediction: Nantes – Juventus (23.2.2023)

Juventus outplayed Nantes in the first leg, and I’m looking for more of the same this Thursday. The Zebras will dominate in the middle of the park and score a couple of goals after missing some massive opportunities in front of the home fans. Angel Di Maria had a good game last Thursday and will torture Nantes once again, so I’m taking Juventus at 1.80 with BetVictor.
