Tottenham vs Juventus 7 March 2018: Champions League Preview and Predictions

Soccer | Round of 16

Tottenham will host Juventus in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie. The first leg at Juventus ended in a 2-2 draw meaning that both teams have tons to play for in what should be a great game of football.

Juventus have had big injury issues in the past few weeks and it is still unclear whether key striker Gonzalo Higuain will be able to start. The Argentine is very important to how Juventus play and this question mark will trouble the Italian side. Having said that, there is plenty of attacking threat in this Juventus side and with the like Dybala and Douglas Costa in the side. Playing away from home will be another challenge for the Italian champions but I think they have enough talent to cope with the problems they will face at Wembley Stadium.

On the other side of the coin, Tottenham will hope to pull off a major upset. Not many people expected Tottenham to make the quarterfinals after the picked Juventus but now they have a real chance. Getting a 2-2 draw at Juventus was a major accomplishment and now they need to finish the job at home. That being said, I think they will fall short. Juventus have the experience of these pressure situations where Spurs don’t and I think that will be enough to get the away side over the line

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good enough price on Juventus to qualify and as a result that is the bet which I am suggesting. Betting on the away side to win outright is also a good bet and I think both results will occur.  

 

Pick:
Juventus
