Champions League Betting

Juventus v Tottenham Betting Preview – UEFA Champions League 13th February 7.45pm

This was a bit of a rough draw for Tottenham after managing to win their group ahead of Real Madrid. They get such a tough opener now in the round of sixteen as they head out to Turin to try and get something out of the game to hold onto back at Wembley. Juventus are such a strong side at home in Europe that they will be going as favourites to get a first leg advantage on the board on Tuesday night.

Juventus News and Form

Juventus are in the round of sixteen in the Champions League for the ninth time in their history and they are W5 L3 from their previous eight visits to this stage. Juventus have been to the final of the Champions League in two of the last three seasons so they are no pushovers at all. They are unbeaten in their last five games in the Champions League, winning three of those, following a heavy loss out at Barcelona on match day one. The Italians went unbeaten on home soil in the group stage, beating Olympiacos and Sporting while playing out a 0-0 draw with Barcelona. You never expect Juve to give too much away defensively and under 2.5 goals at William Hill is at odds of 8/13* (Betting Odds taken on February 8th, 2018 at 7:56 p.m.).

The Old Lady took a 3-0 aggregate win in last season’s round of sixteen against Porto. Juventus are unbeaten in their last 26 games (W16 D10) on home soil Europe since losing to Bayern back in April 2013. That loss against the Germans is actually their only loss in 31 matches at the Juventus Stadium (W19 D11) in Europe. It is such an impressive home record and as well at home, they have suffered only one defeat in their last 24 knockout stage matches, winning all three in last season’s campaign. Juve’s record at home to English clubs is W13 D5 L3. Their record in two-legged knockout ties against English clubs is W5 L8 and currently, they are on a five-tie losing streak against sides from England.


Tottenham News and Form

Tottenham have managed to make it back to the round of sixteen in the Champions League for only the second since. It‚Äôs been awhile since they were last here in the 2010/11 season when they recorded a tight 1-0 win over AC Milan on aggregate. Away from home this season in the Champions League Spurs collected seven points on their travels, taking wins out at APOEL and Borussia Dortmund while earning an excellent point in a 1-1 draw at Real Madrid. So that has been good form from them, however, the Lilywhites really don’t have great away form in Europe, having won only four of their last fourteen on the road (D4 L6). This is a tough draw for them, especially after having won their group. Tottenham have a W5 D6 L4 (W1 D3 L4 in Italy) record in their last fifteen games against Italians side. Five times before they have gone up against Italian opposition in two-legged ties and from those Spurs are W4 L1 up. They are going to need a big performance from Harry Kane to get something out of this tie and he has been carrying some powerful scoring form and as long as that keeps up, Spurs will have a chance. Still, both teams not to score at William Hill is at 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 8th, 2018 at 7:56 p.m.). Spurs did well in the group, how will they fare in such a tough opening knockout stage fixture?

Juventus v Tottenham Predictions

Experience counts for a lot at this stage of proceedings and Juventus have plenty of that in the knockout stage of the competition. Tottenham were highly impressive in their group stage campaign but are still rightly underdogs for this away match. Juventus are a tough home side and can take a lead in the tie.
