UEFA Champions League round of 16 play resumes Tuesday as Villarreal welcome Juventus to Eastern Spain for their first-leg clash. In what is expected to be a fairly even affair, the hosts are the slight favorites, though for many the edge goes slightly to Juventus due to their top January signings of Dusan Vlahovic and Denis Zakaria, both of whom have made an instant impact. Villarreal are coming off of a 4-1 win over Granada over the weekend, while Juventus had to settle for a 1-1 draw in the Turin derby against Torino.

Juventus: No suspensions, but Juan Cuadrado is a yellow away from being suspended. When it comes to injuries, Giorgio Chiellini is expected back at the end of the month after his calf injury, while Federico Bernardeschi is expected back this week. Right winger Federico Chiesa remains out due to his ACL tear. 

Prediction

Gerard gets the opener for the hosts, but Juan Cuadrado’s late goal gives the Italian side all of the momentum ahead of the second leg. Pick: Villarreal 1, Juventus 1
