Juventus vs Trabzonspor by JerryDrake
There are previews of different kinds: the ones you write based on a big research and a lot of information and details found in the last hours. There are other previews, where you write on a game which you have waited for months as you had seen the highlights of the game before the game will be played.
For this second kind of previews, the feeling is like when you know that a team will win, or you know that things will happen in a way rather than in another way. You are so sure about it, that sometimes you get lazy and you can even decide not to bet on it as it is too easy.
So, even though I am not so active recently with previews I had to log in to Betshoot and write some lines on this Europa League match.
As you already know, the Europa League final will be played in Turin. And you also know that Juventus are now competing in this tournament as en effect of their elimination from the Champions League.
Without making the mistake to consider the Scudetto as already won, Antonio Conte will want to reach the final. In order to achieve both goals he will let some reserves play in the starting line-up while some top players will start from the bench.
It sounds negative to see Pirlo, Chiellini, Barzagli, Llorente, Lichtsteiner and Asamoah sitting on the bench. Actually, as their reserves are good ones (Marchisio, Ogbonna, Caceres, Osvaldo, Isla and Peluso) and the rest of the team will be composed by the regulars (Buffon, Bonucci, Vidal, Pogba and Tevez) I consider this turnover as a good way for Conte to get the best from his team.
I dont know much about Trabzonspor (here I will appreciate Foxserkan's comments): I just know that they changed their trainer, they are only 9th in the Turkish League, and they have French player Malouda in their squad (but I dont see him in the starting line-ups). And I remember them conceding three goals to Lazio at home.
Trabzonspor conceded only one goal in their last 7 away games in the Europa League, against Apollon. Their last Europa League decisive away game was played in February 2012 when they lost 1-4 and were eliminated by PSV.
Juventus drew all of their last 6 Europa League in 2010 against Salzburg, Lech Poznan and Manchester City. It was another Juventus compared to this one with Manninger, Grygera, Felipe Melo, Legrottaglie, Motta, Traoré and all others.
This preview belong to the ones who do not need much thinking after months of waiting. And now, after reading statistics, latest news and results, I start getting bored because I see nothing that can make change my mind.
In Europa League Juventus will not have the pressure they feel in Champions League. With the final to achieve on their mind, Juventus players will do the job easily in order to avoid other surprises in Turkey during the second leg as it happened with Galatasaray. For me Juventus will score more than 2.5 goals and I will bet on this. Correct score: 3-0
