Juventus: First place in Serie A and sharp in UCL, Juve looks to have its best team in years and has to be up there with the top contenders to win the cup. Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo are gelling, and the expectation here is for the defense to dominate and for the team to earn three points. Expect Juve to score early and often, with its defense giving the Russian club nothing.
Lokomotiv Moscow: Hard task here, especially after losing at home just barely to Atletico Madrid. Lokomotiv has some really good players that hardcore fans will know. There is Peruvian Jefferson Farfan, Polish midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, Portugal midfielder Joao Mario and even Eder, who scored the winning goal in the Euro 2016 final as Portugal beat France. The problem is, outside of Joao Mario, these are guys who are nowhere near the form of their prime. Will they have enough to get something here?
Juventus dominates from start to finish to stay atop the group with three points.
Pick: Juventus 4, Lokomotiv Moscow 0
