The last time these two sides faced off, we were treated to a thrilling 2-2 draw with goals from each side coming in the last five minutes of the match. With the rematch being the last game of group play, any drama would be infinitely more meaningful to both sides.

The Galatasaray crowd is famous for its passion, so will they be rewarded with an exciting match?

 

Will Juventus Play for the Win or the Draw?

Juventus boss Antonio Conte has come out saying all the right things. He’s insisted that his side are playing for the win and not the draw, but will that be the case when push comes to shove?

Pushing for goals could leave the defense vulnerable to counter-attacks, so will Conte be aggressive with his attack, or will he sit back and play for the draw?

 

Prediction

With so much on the line, this will be an exciting back-and-forth battle. Both sides will play each other to a standstill, however, and Juventus will get the point they need to advance.

Juventus 1, Galatasaray 1
