Juventus vs SC Freiburg Match Preview, Live Streaming

Juventus have their eye on the quarterfinals of the Europa League as they host Freiburg in the first leg of their round of 16 clash. The Allianz Stadium has been a fortress lately and the Turin side should have too much for their visitors.

Juventus are in the round of 16 of the Europa League after seeing off French side Nantes 4-1 on aggregate in the knockout playoffs. They were held to a 1-1 draw in the first meeting before running out 3-0 winners in the return leg in France.

The Turin club warmed up for the visit of Freiburg with a 1-0 defeat to Roma in Serie A last Sunday. They have claimed six wins and a draw from the previous seven matches across all competitions and manager Massimiliano Allegri will be confident of making a swift return to winning ways.

Another thing that will give Juventus confidence ahead of Thursday’s clash is their record at the Allianz Stadium. They have claimed three wins and a draw from their last four home matches across all competitions.

Freiburg drew a bye in the previous round after finishing top of the standings during the group stage of the Europa League. They were unbeaten in Group G, claiming four wins and two draws from six matches.

The draws came in their final group matches as Freiburg appeared to lose their way having begun with four straight wins. However, Christian Streich's men travel to Turin in good form having gone unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions. They were however held to a 0-0 draw by Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga last Saturday.

Although they are unbeaten in their last three away matches, Freiburg often struggle against the top sides away from home. A 5-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund is among their recent results on the road while they have also been beaten 3-1 by RB Leipzig and 5-0 by Bayern Munich.
