We’ve got an intriguing quarter final tie in the Europa League, with Juventus more of a household name than Sporting, although perhaps the bookies are underestimating the Portuguese side for this tie. After all, it was no fluke that they were able to overcome an Arsenal side who top the English Premier League, even if the Gunners rested some players.

Sporting were previously able to secure a 5-1 aggregate win over Midtjylland and they have to stand a chance under Ruben Amorim, with the manager having been linked with a host of high-profile positions across Europe. However, he’ll be determined to overcome a Juventus side who could be vulnerable and currently don’t look to be among the best teams in Italy.

Juventus will certainly be the team most under pressure here, with the Turin side having claimed a 4-1 aggregate win over Nantes in the last sixteen of the competition. They were then able to account for Freiburg in the quarter finals of the tournament and it was quite a statement considering that the German side have been performing well domestically.

Perhaps all is not lost for Juve although we think it’s worth punting on Sporting when it comes to the Asian Handicap so that they benefit with a goal start. There is every chance that the first leg will feature goals and we might see Juventus and BTTS Yes being a bet that profits along the way. We would recommend looking out for Europa League price boosts here.
