In the Group D Champions League group phase match, Olympiacos will host Juventus at the Allianz (J) Stadium tonight. Juventus defeated the Olympiakos by the great 7-0 goals and it is the positive thing for Juventus to win this match. So if in the Italian Serie A of equal Juventus has not yet been found, then the result of the first round of the Champions League was a little unexpected.

No other side has managed to keep Juventus scoreless at home this season for as long as Olympiakos did, but the introduction of Higuain gave them an extra dimension in attack.

- Meanwhile, Olympiakos have lost six of their last eight away games in the competition (W2). With a hole from a bagel, Olympiakos remained in the game of the 1st round of the Champions League. He was beaten finalist in two of the last three seasons with Juventus.

Once Higuain scored the Greeks lost their appetite for the battle and Mandzukic bundled the ball home as Olympiakos tried to clear a Dybala shot off the line to wrap up the three points for Massimo Allegri's side. In these matches Juventus remains with a large percentage of won fights. Both the teams had met four times and Juventus won 3 matches and Olympiakos won one match.

However, the latest news reported by Sky Sports claims Allegri will present a 4-2-3-1 formation where Stefano Sturaro will play as a right-back and Mandzukic is projected as a man target to replace Higuain.
