Champions League: Owen predicts Juventus vs Chelsea, Man Utd vs Villarreal games


Former Real Madrid striker, Michael Owen, has predicted the outcome of some of today’s UEFA Champions League group stage games.

Juventus will host Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea in today’s Champions League clash in Turin.


Manchester United will tackle Villarreal at Old Trafford.

Providing his predictions, Owen told BetVictor, “This is a must-win for United after some disappointing results. The defeat to Young Boys on matchday one was a shock and ultimately one that Solskjaer must feel was preventable. Ronaldo’s signing galvanised the club but after a couple of bad results, the pressure is back on Ole.

“Villareal are an organised side but have had a strange start to their La Liga season, drawing five of their first six. Unai Emery is obviously an experienced manager in Europe, but I think United will have too much for them. I am going for a 2-0 United win.”

Commenting on the Juventus vs Chelsea game, Owen said, “I have got to say, I didn’t see that performance against Man City coming. That was a rare poor showing from Chelsea under Tuchel, but I would expect him to get a response from his side here.


“I still think Chelsea have a good chance of retaining this trophy. Juventus have started their Serie A season in poor form and frankly, don’t look quite the side they once were. I would never write them off, particularly with Allegri back at the helm, but I fancy Chelsea to come back from Turin with a win. 1-0 Chelsea is my prediction.”

The kick-off time for all the matches is 8 pm.
