Juventus vs Young Boys

Juventus vs Young Boys : Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri acknowledges Inter are title rivals in Serie A but believes next week’s Champions League showdown with Young Boys is more important than the Derby d’Italia.

Juventus and Young Boys sqaure off on the final matchday of the Champions League group stage with the Italian club closing in on first place in the group. Juve has a two-point lead over Manchester United and will likely aim to win the group over providing rest to its most important players. Young Boys are locked into fourth place in the competition and will be done with European competition after this game.

Reigning champions Juve head into Friday’s match already boasting an 11-point advantage over third-placed Inter after 14 games of the season.

Allegri still feels Inter are part of a three-horse title race alongside his own side and Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli, but understandably believes Juve getting the win they need over the Swiss champions next Wednesday to ensure top spot over Manchester United in Group H will have a greater bearing on their season.

At last, we can talk about something other than how many points Juventus needs to get into the Champions League’s Round of 16.

This time, we get to talk about how many points Juventus needs to make sure they finish atop Champions League Group H and give themselves just that much better of a chance of getting a relatively favorite draw in the Round of 16.

So, kind of the same thing, except with a much better kind of twist to it.

Wednesday night in Switzerland isn’t Juventus’ final European game of the season. Rather, it’s just their final game of the Champions League group stage. And while facing a Young Boys side that Juventus has already beaten 3-0 thanks to Paulo Dybala’s hat trick two months ago, the top spot in Group H is very much up for the taking. The good part is that Juve have the inside track on it and will only lose out on it if they self-destruct on the final day of the group stage — something that will probably have Max Allegri doing more than just ripping his jacket off and throwing it on the ground.

(The Round of 16 draw is next Monday in Nyon, in case you’re wondering or have forgotten.)

That means it’s simple for Juventus. You know, just like it was at home against Manchester United, just like it was at home against Valencia. You get a win and then you’re not having to leave yourself to wonder how Manchester United are doing against Valencia. Juve get a win and the main goal of finishing atop the group, one that Max Allegri made sure to emphasize once again during his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, is there and achieved.

Manchester United vs Valencia

Manchester United has already guaranteed a spot in the Champions League knockout stage, but the Red Devils could still win Group H with a victory over Valencia combined with a loss or draw by Juventus at Young Boys. Though it’s unlikely Juve drops points on the road, the Red Devils will go for the win in Eastern Spain against a team it couldn’t beat the first time they played at Old Trafford.

Manchester United already has guaranteed a spot in the Champions League knockout stage, but the Red Devils could still win Group H with a victory over Valencia combined with a loss or draw by Juventus at Young Boys. Though it’s unlikely Juve drops points on the road, the Red Devils will go for the win in Eastern Spain against a team it couldn’t beat the first time they played at Old Trafford.

Manchester United: The Red Devils are thin in defense and could be without guys like Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly. Luke Shaw is also doubtful this one, and if all of these guys miss out, Valencia will have more than its fair chance of winning.

Valencia: This is a team that has dealt with several injuries, and it always seems like somebody important is missing. Star attacker Goncalo Guedes has missed time due to injury and is unavailable for this match, as is striker Kevin Gameiro.

he Red Devils score early, but a late goal from Valencia sees the teams split the points, as United finishes second in the group.

As well as his legendary status at Old Trafford, Neville is a successful businessman with his fingers in many pies, from restaurants to hotels, so ultimately his foray into coaching will not define him.

However his torturous reign in Valencia will not be forgotten quickly either. Neville’s appointment was seen as bizarre at the time and disastrous when he was sacked.

Valencia took only 14 points from 16 league games under Neville and the coach was dismissed with the team in 14th, six points above the relegation zone.

The Englishman made mistakes. How could he not? Walking into a coaching job at one of Spain’s biggest sides without speaking the language was an error to start with.

Neville had no experience as a head coach and, while that didn’t make it impossible for a coach to succeed, it certainly made it unlikely.

Neville, a friend and business partner of Peter Lim, the Spanish side’s Singaporean owner who bought a 50 percent stake in Salford City, also arrived without back-up, although brother Phil Neville was already at the club working as an assistant manager.

Not having anyone come in with him who spoke Spanish was a grave mistake. Neville would have been bolstered significantly if he’d had a team to work with that knew the league, the players and the fans, and understood the language, the media and the culture of the country.

On reaching the last 16 and facing tonight’s opponents Hoffenheim, Guardiola said: “We are in the next stage which is important but we have to try and win every game, to finish first. Last 16 is always tough but it’s a success we are there.

“The team we will face will be tough. They [Hoffenheim] were incredible against Donetsk and they lost. It was incredible and fascinating to watch as a spectator.

“My admiration for Hoffenheim has increased. I knew about Julian Nagelsmann and his team but now I realise how tough [it] will be.”

Here we look at the group F permutations, team news, possible starting XIs and matchday six results and fixtures.

City boss Guardiola has revealed that he only has 15 players available for tonight’s match against the German side.

Spanish playmaker David Silva injured his hamstring in the 2-0 defeat against Chelsea and will be out for a few weeks. Silva joins Kevin de Bruyne, Danilo, Sergio Aguero, Benjamin Mendy and Claudio Bravo on the sidelines.

Guardiola said: “Silva not able, Kevin not able, Danilo not able, Sergio isn’t ready. Maybe he [Aguero] has a chance for the weekend. We have 15 players available, so I can’t do it too much.

Bundesliga.com reports that the German side will be without defensive midfielder Håvard Nordtveit (foot), forward David Otto (foot) and midfielder Lukas Rupp (cruciate ligament) while striker Ádám Szalai is suspended.

The standout encounter sees Manchester United seeking to get back on track after a tough start to the season against Valencia, who have been below their best themselves so far in La Liga. Juventus, without the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo, will host Young Boys.

Elsewhere, champions Real Madrid travel to CSKA Moscow, Hoffenheim host Manchester City and Bayern Munich face Ajax.

Here are the matches to come on Tuesday, the broadcast information for the games and a closer look at a couple of the standout encounters.

After falling to defeat in their first Champions League match of the season against Lyon, Manchester City need to bounce back when they travel to Germany on Tuesday.

At the Etihad Stadium last time out in this competition they were picked off by the Ligue 1 side on the counter-attack. This means what appeared to be a straightforward group suddenly became a lot more challenging for Pep Guardiola’s men.

Domestically, City have been in fine form and will be big favourites to get the job done against Hoffenheim. However, Julian Nagelsmann’s team have it in them to make this an uncomfortable contest for the Premier League outfit.

While they’ve not got off to the best of starts in the Bundesliga this season, in recent years they’ve proved themselves to be a versatile and dynamic team capable of bridging the gap to elite sides. With that in mind it’ll be intriguing to see how the coach sets them up for this challenge.

The pressure is beginning to ramp up for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, and Old Trafford will expect a response on Tuesday against Valencia.

That’s after the Red Devils backed up their Carabao Cup elimination against Derby County with a 3-1 loss to West Ham United on Saturday in the Premier League. Another poor result here would push the club closer to crisis point.

Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph doesn’t think the Portuguese coach is getting the best of the options he has at United:

The Red Devils may be facing Valencia at the wrong time. After an unconvincing start to the campaign, they picked up their first La Liga win of the season on Saturday, battling to a 1-0 victory at Real Sociedad.

Marcelino’s side are a dangerous opponent. Valencia are built to counter-attack and have firepower aplenty in the form of Kevin Gameiro, Michy Batshuayi and Goncalo Guedes. Given how poorly United have defended in recent matches, containing those sorts of players will be a massive ask.

Real Madrid finishes up its participation in the Champions League group stage on Wednesday when the club hosts CSKA Moscow in the early slate. Los Blancos are 4-0-1 in Group G with 12 points and have the group wrapped up, while the Russian club is hoping to finish third and enter the Europa League round of 32. Roma has already clinched second place in the group.

Date : Wednesday, Dec. 12 Time: 12:55 p.m. ET Location: Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, SpainTV channel: TNT and UniMas Streaming: fuboTV (Try for free) Odds: Real Madrid -550 / CSKA Moscow +1350 / Draw +610

Real Madrid: Since Real has already wrapped up the group, we may see them do as others usually do — rest their best players. Why risk one of your more important players getting injured? Don’t expect to see much of guys like Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, as this would be the perfect time to get some young players some minutes.

CSKA Moscow: This team will try to go all out, playing with a focus on attack, knowing it probably needs a result of some sort to finish over Viktoria Plzen for third place. The team is fairly healthy entering the match, and the confidence will be there after beating Real earlier in the group stage.

The Russians can’t get the win on the road, but they settle with a draw that ends up being enough to advance to the Europa League.
