Juventus v Sporting Shown A Card: Rodrigo Battaglia

Football - Champions League - 18 Oct 19:45

I fancy there to be a few cards in this one, especially from Sporting. They have picked up 6 and 3 cards in their two games this season, and it makes sense to back one of their players tonight.

Battaglia is one of those that stands out, and odds of 3.00 for a CDM are always good, especially in a game where Juve will dominate possession and he will be responsible for getting through a lot of work. He has played the full 90 in both of Sporting's CL games this season, picking up 1 card.

His defensive numbers in the competition are pretty staggering, despite the small sample size. He is averaging 4.5 tackles, 1 interception and 2.5 fouls per game so far. Even in his 5 domestic starts he has put up 2 tackles, 0.5 interceptions and 2.9 fouls per game, so he's an all action combative midfielder that's for sure. He's up against really good opposition here, and Juve will be looking to assert their dominance on Sporting after a less than fantastic display against Olympiakos last time out and their 1-2 defeat to Lazio at the weekend.

The ref for this game is Michael Oliver, who averages 4 cards in 28 European games, and has shown 5 or more in his last three outings.
