Juventus' transition from Paul Pogba and Alvaro Morata to Miralem Pjanic and Gonzalo Higuain has gone incredibly smoothly in Serie A, where they have made light of being handed four of last term's top eight in their opening six fixtures to deliver five wins and set the early pace.

Those 15 points mark three times as many as they had at the same stage 12 months ago following the exits of Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal and Carlos Tevez which, given they claimed the scudetto for the fifth time in a row by a nine-point margin on that occasion, feels rather ominous.

Their Champions League debut wasn't as accomplished, disappointing as they were held 0-0 by Sevilla in Turin - for comparison, they started last season with a 2-1 victory at eventual semi-finalists Manchester City - yet they are 1.330/100 to get it right on their first away trip at Dinamo Zagreb.

While the Croatian champions are excellent in the qualifying phase, going 12 contests unbeaten since the start of 2015/16, they aren't so impactful in the actual competition, falling to six straight defeats, the latest 3-0 against Lyon.


Juventus Win to Nil

Dinamo Zagreb's greatest group-stage failing is in front of goal, where they have a single strike to show for their most recent six encounters, as opposed to 16 concessions. Juventus were breached just twice in their past six group games and consequently have to be fancied to win to nil at 1.9620/21.
