Sam’s Betting Tips – Olympique Lyonnais vs Juventus FC

“Lyon have a solid home record in this competition, remaining unbeaten in their last eight UCL home games. Juve have been excellent in the UCL, but have only won one of their last four competitive away games. An efficient performance from Juve should see them edge this one.”
