Juventus vs Tottenham: In one of the big matches of this Champions League’s round of 16,
Juventus hosts Tottenham in Turin on the 1st leg of this tie.
We can’t consider Tottenham’s presence here a surprise.
Of course that on the last couple of years the team failed to advance to the Champions League’s final stages.
But Tottenham finished in 2nd place of the Premier League for the last 2 seasons, ahead of the usual giants that dominate the Premier League.
But this season, the team didn’t really leave it to chance.
They advanced in first place, unbeaten, on a group with teams like Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, who are two teams much more used to these wanderings than the English side.
Still, they’ve gotten 5 wins and 1 draw and advanced in 1st place with one of the best defensive records of the entire group stage.
I expect a more moderate affair here. Juventus is a very pragmatic team and they are aware of the danger it is conceding goals on these Champions League’s knockout ties.
On the other side, we have a Tottenham that was one of the best defences of the group stage despite facing Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, which means they have a well-tested defence.
Juventus vs Tottenham – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe on a more closed encounter, focused on marking and without many goals, so the under appears as an interesting option.
I don’t see any of these two teams launching itself wildly on the attack on the 1st leg of the 8th finals of the Champions League and the defences should be prevailing here.
