Juventus a Safe Bet this Year?

Juventus a Safe BetJuventus are one of Europe’s most famous clubs and after having won the Italian League title last season, they’ve firmly re-established themselves as a force in European football. Don’t write them off as potential winners of the 2013 Champions League.

The Grand Old Lady of Italian football won Serie A emphatically, remaining unbeaten throughout the season in a league looking to rebuild its status as the best in the world. Juve’s success is due to a stout defence and arguably one player above any other - Andrea Pirlo.

Pirlo has been overlooked in recent seasons, as players like Xavi, Iniesta, Schweinsteiger, Sneijder and Alonso have grabbed the headlines as the world’s best ‘midfielders’. Pirlo was always fit to be mentioned alongside these names but slipped into obscurity in his final days at Milan. The recent European Championships confirmed his status as one of the best.

Pirlo isn’t a goal scorer of any acclaim; his game is sitting in front of the back four and distributing the ball with perfect style and ease. This is a great weapon in the modern game where the attacking team look to close the defence down quickly after losing the ball, meaning the opposition can’t settle in possession. Pirlo is technically perfect and rarely loses the ball under pressure. He’s also a major threat from deep as he can pick out a 40 yard pass with ease.

Pirlo’s passing skills have aptly earned him the nickname ‘the architect’, with Juve building their most destructive moves around him. More and more teams look to deploy players who build moves from deep, seeing the anchor man as a playmaker rather than a destroyer. The floating number 9 may be the order of the day, but Pirlo represents something equally creative.

Juve are hard to beat due to their comfort in possession and therefore offer a sound bet for this year’s Champions League. At odds of around 16-1 they are something of an unknown quantity to the bookies and their affiliated online casino. They’re rightly regarded as favourites for the Serie A title and the addition of a Llorente could propel them into the stratosphere.

Football betting is great fun, and when the season is over you need something to keep those gambling urges at the door.
