Juventus v Napoli Predictions & Betting Odds – 22nd April 2018

Buffon (Juventus)
Juventus v Napoli Betting Preview - Serie A 22nd April 7.45pm This is a top-two clash in Serie A with only a handful of games remaining. Juventus have control of the title race now and can put a giant Gianluigi Buffon sized hand on the Championship with a win in this one. Napoli's winning form has just been drifting in and out and they need to produce three points in this one to at least get some pressure back on the Old Lady.

Juventus v Napoli Betting Tips

Juventus dropped a couple of points at relegation-threatened Crotone in midweek, a surprise result for them. They go into this clash on the weekend just the four points clear of Napoli now so the pressure is on just a little bit. Realistically they just need to avoid defeat to hold their ground and there would be just the four games left in the season for them to safely get through. A win though in Turin would send them seven points clear with twelve left for the season to play for. Juventus have only suffered one home loss in the league all season, which was back on October 14th against Lazio. Their home record is W14 D1 L1 and they are on a seven-match winning streak at the moment on home soil in Serie A, undefeated in eleven. They have hit the back of the net in each of their last seven and have scored at least two in each of their five. In the bet365 correct score market the shortest priced option available is the 1-1 draw at 5/1, with Juventus 1-0 right there at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on April 18th, 2018 at 11:55 p.m.). Remarkably from their 16 home games in the league this season, Juventus have conceded just the five goals, taking a clean sheet in 75% of their fixtures in Turin. Remarkable stuff. They are at 12/5 to win to nil at bet365. Up until the start of March, Napoli looked to really have somewhat of a grip on the title, however, a loss at home to Rome on March 3rd snapped a tremendous ten-match winning streak that they were on and that has sent them on a patchy run of form going W3 D3 L1 in their last seven, which isn’t bad, but it hasn’t been enough to keep pace with Juve. Napoli took a 4-2 home win over Udinese in midweek which meant that they did close the gap on the leaders as Juventus could only pick up that draw. The problem is, is that Napoli are now winless in their last three away games (D3) and two of those were against current top six sides, AC Milan and Inter Milan. In their four games against current top sides this season, Napoli have failed to score in three of them. Napoli’s overall away from reads an unbeaten W12 D4 L0. They have scored 31 goals in their 16 road games this season and have conceded just eight goals on their travels. They have earned a clean sheet in 62% of their away games. There are two powerful attacks here and Napoli have to have a go at this and both teams to score at bet365 is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on April 18th, 2018 at 11:55 p.m.).

Juventus v Napoli Head to Head

Juventus took a 1-0 away win at Napoli earlier this season in the league meeting. They went up against each other four times last season because of Coppa Italia meetings and Juventus came out on top with two wins and a draw. Juventus have won their last six in Turin against Napoli in all competitions. In the last five Serie A meetings, Juventus are W3 D1 L1. Both teams have scored in eight of the last ten head-to-heads.

Juventus v Napoli Betting Odds*

Juventus 21/20, Draw 23/10, Napoli 13/5* (Betting Odds taken at 7:10 p.m. on April 18th, 2018)

Juventus v Napoli Predictions

Juventus have been powering down the home straight this season and there’s no reason to suspect that they won’t get the maximum points haul in this one. There should be no stopping the Old Lady on home soil in this one. Home win but both teams to score.

Real Madrid v Juventus Predictions & Betting Odds – 11th April 2018

Real Madrid
Real Madrid v Juventus Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 11th April 7.45pm There is a long way back for Juventus into this tie now. They lost 3-0 in Turin last week but they had more than enough chances and exposed plenty of weaknesses in the Real Madrid back line to still give themselves hope. On any other night, they could have easily won. But it is an advantage to the Spaniards now who head back to the Bernabeu looking to close out the deal against the Italians.

Real Madrid News and Form

Real Madrid are in their 35th European Cup quarter-final. From their previous visits, they hold a wonderful W28 L6 record. They have won each of their last seven last-eight ties. So it is not often that you are going to see them tripped up at this stage and it’s not likely to happen this season either. A win in this one makes them the first side to hit 150 Champions League wins and they are on a six-match winning streak against Italian sides. The Spaniards are W8 D4 L1 in their last thirteen games against Italian opposition (the only loss a defeat at Juventus in the 2015 semi-final first leg). Real Madrid have won 34 of their last 40 UEFA Champions League home matches (D5 L1) in such a powerful record at the Bernabeu. They collected seven points from their three home games in the group stage and beat PSG 3-1 at the Bernabeu in the last round. Cristiano Ronaldo is the bet365 first goalscorer favourite at 5/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:39 p.m. on April 8th, 2018) and he has scored in every Champions League game this season. Madrid have won 23 of their 32 home matches against Italian opponents (D3 L6). Overall they have lost only two of their last 28 European fixtures.

Juventus News and Form

There is a long road back for Juventus in this tie, too long of a road more likely than not. They certainly had their chances in the first leg and on any other night, they could easily have taken the victory. Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain could have put Juventus in a strong position as the Italians attacked well and found plenty of space in the Real Madrid defence. But it didn’t happen for them and without anything to build on, this is a tough situation. In the bet365 correct score market a Real Madrid 2-1 option is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:39 p.m. on April 8th, 2018) and it is probably worth backing both teams to get on the scoresheet. Juventus hold a W9 L6 record from two-legged ties against Spanish opposition. Their other trip to Spain this season didn't go well as they lost 3-0 at Barcelona in the group stage. The Bianconeri holds a W19 D15 L23 record from previous games against Spanish sides. Juventus have are W2 D2 L1 away from home in Europe this season and over 2.5 goals at bet356 for 4/7 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:39 p.m. on April 8th, 2018) looks a solid proposition. Remarkably this is only the second time they have lost the first leg at home in UEFA competition.

Real Madrid v Juventus Head to Head

The two sides have met 20 times in the European Cup and Real Madrid’s success last week was their tenth win in their games against the Italians. Juventus are there with eight and the two drawn games. So it’s all pretty tight in and from those games real Madrid have scored 25 goals to the 22 by Juventus. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in each of his last six games against Juventus for real Madrid (nine goals). Madrid have not beaten Juventus in a two-legged tie since the 1986/87 European Cup second round, but they have a W5 D2 L1 record in their eight home games against Juve.

Real Madrid v Juventus Betting Odds*

Real Madrid 8/15, Draw 31/10, Juventus 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 8:39 p.m. on April 8th, 2018)

Real Madrid v Juventus Predictions

Real Madrid should put the tie to bed comfortably enough. Their back line does look a bit dodgy and Juventus got at them well in Turin. But it’s too far back now for the Italians to turn this all around. Look for Madrid to close out with a second leg win too but for both teams to score.

Juventus v Real Madrid Predictions & Betting Odds – 3rd April 2018

Real Madrid
Juventus v Real Madrid Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 3rd April 7.45pm A tough looking tie for Juventus to land, but they are actually looking a decent option to get something out of this first leg. They have home form against Spanish sides and they have won each of their last four two-legged contests against Real Madrid. The Old Lady will be out for revenge as Real Madrid got the better of them in last season’s UEFA Champions League Final. Juventus have to make it count at home.

Juventus News and Form

Juventus were left heartbroken in Cardiff ten months ago, losing the final 4-1 to Real Madrid. For the 18th time in their history, they are in the quarter finals of the European Cup (W12 D5) and they have a pretty strong record at this stage. They have decent form in two-legged ties against Spanish sides at W9 L6, and notably, they have won their last four duels with Real Madrid specifically in two-legged duels. Juventus beat Barcelona 3-0 on aggregate at the stage last season and held the Catalans to a draw in Turin in this season’s group stage. But they are without a win in their last four against Spanish sides now (D2 L2). They are however, unbeaten in their last seven European games (W4 D3), getting past Spurs in the last round in such dramatic fashion after looking out of the running.

Juventus v Real Madrid 2018 Infographic

Juventus have a lot of fight, a lot of substance and grit about them. They have match winners too. In the bet365 correct score market a 1-1 draw is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:37 p.m. on March 30th, 2018) and the shortest priced option available in it. Juve's overall home record against Liga opposition is W15 D9 L2 and they are unbeaten in their last nine fixtures, losing just one of their last 25 home fixtures in Europe against Spanish sides. So that is a very strong record they can at least look at and take some confidence from. They are undefeated in 27 European home games now (W16 D11) and have suffered only the one reverse in their last 25 UEFA knockout stage games as well (W15 D9).

Real Madrid News and Form

Real Madrid are back in the quarter finals of the European Cup/Champions League for a record 35th time. They have prevailed in each of the last seven visits, this being their eighth season in a row of making it this far. Real Madrid have won their last five games against Italian opposition and overall in two-legged ties against Italian sides they are W12 L9. They failed to win on nine visits to Italy before snapping that sequence with a victory at Roma in the 2015/16 round of sixteen and then followed it up with a win over Napoli in their last trip there. Los Merengues are now W7 D4 in their last eleven games home and away against Serie A sides. Madrid's overall record away to Italian clubs is W6 D8 L18. Real Madrid are W3 L1 on their travels in the Champions League this season, the reverse happening in London against Tottenham in the group stage. They had a rough draw against PSG in the round of sixteen, a team priced up as favourites to win the tournament outright this season at one stage. But Real Madrid showed their character and stepped up to the plate, even though they rode their luck defensively at times and prevailed 5-2 on aggregate. Cristiano Ronaldo is the 7/2 first goalscorer favourite at bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 11:37 p.m. on March 30th, 2018) and he has scored in every Champions League played this season. Madrid have lost just two of their last 27 European fixtures (W19 D5). Their lack of clean sheets across all competition is really the only big concern about them.    

Juventus v Real Madrid Head to Head

Of the last four two-legged ties in the UEFA Champions League between these two giants, it is Juventus who have come out on top in them, so they do have that going for them. They have the honour of being the last side to knock Real Madrid out of the Champions League, which happened in the in the 2014/15 semi-finals. Real Madrid narrowly leads the head to head with 9 wins to 8 (D2) from their previous meetings. But Real Madrid produced that 4-1 win over them in Cardiff last summer in the Final. That was their second Champions League final success against them.

Juventus v Real Madrid Betting Odds*

Real Madrid 6/4, Juventus 9/5, Draw 9/4* (Betting Odds taken at 11:37 p.m. on March 30th, 2018)

Juventus v Real Madrid Predictions

Real Madrid haven’t been good at the back all season and Juventus can make a fist of this. They are just a bit of value to go out and take the most of home advantage because they will know that this is their best chance of making it through. Juventus to win.

Champions League Quarter Finals Betting 2018 Winner Odds & Predictions

Manchester City
The final eight teams left standing in this year’s UEFA Champions League now all know their fate in the quarter-finals after the draw was made on Friday, March 16th. It has thrown together a tremendous clash between the two last standing Premier League clubs in this year’s tournament, Manchester City and Liverpool. So that will be a mouthwatering showdown to look forward too while the reigning Champions Real Madrid will have a tough battle on their hands as they head off to face Italian giants Juventus in the quarter finals. The two met in the Final in Cardiff last season, with Real Madrid running out big winners in the showcase match. Will Juve be able to gain some revenge? Here we take a preview of the four ties.

Champions League Quarter Finals Betting Odds*

Barcelona 5/2, Man City 3/1, Bayern Munich 4/1, Real Madrid 9/2, Juventus 10/1, Liverpool 12/1, Sevilla 66/1, Roma 66/1* (betting odds taken on March 16th, 2018 at 6:42 p.m.)

Outright Winner Odds Converted to Chance of Winning

Barcelona 28.5% Man City 25% Bayern Munich 20% Real Madrid 18% Juventus 9% Liverpool 7.5% Sevilla 1.5% Roma 1.5%

Barcelona v Roma

Barcelona will be expected to roll their way through this one. Roma had a tough time of things in seeing off Shakhtar Donetsk in the last round so are probably going to have their work cut out for them in this one against a much more difficult opponents. The Catalans have been moving through the tournament effortlessly once again and they have moved to 5/2 favourites at Bet365 following the draw* (betting odds taken on March 16th, 2018 at 6:42 p.m.). They are favourites to win the first leg of this tie against Roma at home which is on Wednesday, April 4th. There have been the four previous meetings between the two clubs and from those things are actually even with one win each and two drawn matches having been played out. The last time they were together was in the 2015/16 Group Stage, with Barcelona winning 6-1 at home. The Spanish giants are unbeaten in their last twelve matches against Italian club, winning nine of those. Oh, and Lionel Messi has 12 goals 19 previous games against Italian opposition. Barcelona are probably going to find themselves in the final four.

Sevilla v Bayern Munich

After seeing off Manchester United in the last round, Spanish side Sevilla gets a tougher task as they face up to Bayern Munich. The Spaniards performed well against United in the round of sixteen, but they still looked pretty shaky at the back. Bayern Munich coasted through their tie against Besiktas in the last round and are favourites to win this tussle. This will be the first meeting between the two in UEFA competition and what makes this one interesting is that Bayern have lost their last five games in Spain, while Sevilla will be defending an unbeaten home record against German sides (W7 D4) when they host the Bundesliga powerhouses in the first leg.

Juventus v Real Madrid

What a tie this should be. Everything great about Juventus was seen in their second leg victory at Wembley over Spurs in the last round. They looked down and out in the second leg but called on all of their experience and nous to find a way to win through at the end of the day, taking a 2-1 win in London. They famously met up with Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League final with Real Madrid winning 4-1. However, it is Juventus who have won the last four two-legged ties against Real Madrid including the 2014/15 semi-final clash. They have won six of their last seven home games against the Spaniards as well. From the nineteen previous meetings, Real Madrid are 9-8 ahead with two draws. The Bianconeri may well make a good fist of this and do have a little appeal at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on March 16th, 2018 at 6:42 p.m.) to win the first leg in Turin.

Liverpool v Manchester City

The bonus of this draw is that there will be a guaranteed English side in the final four of this year’s Champions League. This will be their first meeting in UEFA competition but it was Liverpool who are the only side to have beaten Manchester City in the Premier League this season. They are dominating the head to head from previous domestic fixtures as well, being 87-45 ahead with 46 drawn matches over the Citizens. You get the feeling that Liverpool's chances will hinge on them producing a result at home in this first leg, but they are 2/1 underdogs at bet365 to do so, with City at 13/10 to pull off the victory* (betting odds taken on March 16th, 2018 at 6:42 p.m.). The Citizens have managed to pick up just the one win in their last eight games against the Reds in all competitions.

Barcelona - W14 L5 Bayern Munich - W18 L10 Juventus - W12 L5 Liverpool - W8 L4 Man City - W1 L0 Real Madrid - W28 L6 Roma - W1 L2 Sevilla - W0 L1

Quarter Final Predictions

It is easy enough to imagine that Barcelona and Bayern Munich will see off their respective opponents easily enough to make it through to the final four and take a step closer to the Final in Kiev. As for the other ties they are little harder to call. Manchester City probably won’t be too pleased with having drawn Liverpool, but over the two legs, you can see them just producing enough, especially with the second leg back at the Etihad, to get through. It could be an epic tussle between them though. The upset that we would put the most stock in would be Juventus doing a number over Real Madrid. They have head to head form over Los Merengues in Turin and if they can build a first leg lead, they will know how to defend it on the road.

Man City leads Champions League betting ahead of quarter final draw

Manchester City
With Chelsea bowing out against Barcelona in midweek, it has left just two of the original five English Premier League clubs in this year’s UEFA Champions League. Manchester City and Liverpool were the only one to make it through after Manchester United were stunned at home by Sevilla and Spurs lost out against the battling experience and expertise of Juventus in their second leg duel at Wembley. Manchester city had an easy time of things in their round of sixteen tie against FC Basel, winning 5-2 on aggregate, while Liverpool powered their way to a 5-0 aggregate success against FC Porto. The other notable name to fall from the round of sixteen was PSG who couldn’t get the better of reigning champions Real Madrid in their fantastic tussle. The draw for the quarter finals will be made on Friday, March 16th and in there will be two English clubs, three Spanish clubs, two Italian clubs and German powerhouses Bayern Munich. The fall of PSG has left Manchester City as the 3/1 outright favourites now at bet365* (betting odds taken on March 15, 2018 at 00:13 a.m.) as the Parisians were right up there at the head of the outright winner market with Pep Guardiola’s troops.

Champions League Winner Odds*

Man City 3/1, Barcelona 7/2, Real Madrid 4/1, Bayern Munich 9/2, Liverpool 9/1, Juventus 9/1, Sevilla 50/1, Roma 50/1* (betting odds taken on March 15, 2018 at 00:13 a.m.) Of course the current odds are all going to be shifting around a little bit come the draw for the final eight. That will be because of the level of difficulty that a team will face in the next round of the draw. But it is Manchester City who are the ones to beat according to the bookmakers and it would be very interesting to see how they handle the moves against someone like Barcelona, Bayern or Real Madrid.

Tottenham v Juventus Predictions & Betting Odds – 7th March 2018

Tottenham
Tottenham v Juventus Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 7th March 7.45pm Tottenham are arguably in the driving seat now in this Champions League tussle with Juventus. They were down and out early on in Turin but fought back tremendously well to come out with a 2-2 draw and that boost of away goals gives them the upper hand in the tie. Juventus may be a little stronger in terms of personnel for this one though and will be looking to pull off a big night at Wembley.

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs did a wonderful job in fighting their way back from 2-0 down against Juventus out in Turin in the first leg. At 2-1 down though they dodged a huge bullet as the Italians missed a penalty kick. Only once before have Spurs been at this stage of the competition so are relatively inexperienced at all this, but they are holding a slight advantage through away goals at the moment. They won all three of their group stage games at Wembley scoring three goals in each of those games, which included a win over Real Madrid.

Tottenham v Juventus 2018 Infographic

In the William Hill correct score market for this second leg, the 1-1 draw is the shortest-priced option at 6/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:41 p.m. on March 5th, 2018). Spurs hold an unbeaten record of seven home games against Italian sides (W4 D3) and they have won four of their five previous two-legged UEFA contests against Italian opposition as well. The stats do look good for them as the Lilywhites have won all six of their ties in Europe after having drawn the first leg away from home. Harry Kane is running as the 3/1 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds taken at 00:41 p.m. on March 5th, 2018) for the match and Spurs have every reason to be confident.

Juventus News and Form

Juve have a W5 L3 record from round of sixteen ties in the UEFA Champions League. They are carrying good away from in Europe at the moment too with a W3 D3 record going in their last six away from Turin. In last year’s campaign, Juve won five of their six away matches in last season’s UEFA Champions League, drawing the other one so are still going to put up a tough fight. They are unbeaten in seven now against English sides as well with a W3 D4 record and were on a three-match winning streak against Premier League sides before that 2-2 draw in Turin with Spurs. The Bianconeri have a poor record away to English clubs of just W3 D6 L12. The last time that they went to England was to face Man City in the 2015/16 group stage and they won that 2-1. In two-legged knockout ties against English clubs, Juventus are W5 L8 but have lost each of their last five ties. Both teams to score at William Hill is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:41 p.m. on March 5th, 2018). Juventus at the moment are on a massive 19 game streak in all competitions without defeat (W17 D2) and they have conceded just the one goal in their last ten games away from home (W10). If you take out the draw with Spurs, Juve have conceded one goal in their last 19 in all competitions.    

Tottenham v Juventus Head to Head

The first leg between these two was the first-ever meeting between the two clubs.

Tottenham v Juventus Betting Odds*

Tottenham 11/10, Draw 12/5, Juventus 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 00:41 p.m. on March 5th, 2018)

Tottenham v Juventus Predictions

Juventus have shown some astounding form recently and are no mugs. They have the experience and the quality to go and do what needs to be done in London. The Italians may well be worth a flutter to edge their way to a match victory.

Juventus v Atalanta Predictions & Betting Odds – 28th February 2018

European Football
Juventus v Atalanta Betting Preview - Coppa Italia 28th February 4.30pm Juventus hold a 1-0 advantage from the first leg of this Coppa Italia semi final duel against Atalanta. So they are in a strong position now to push on through to the final and they were supposed to have met Atalanta in Turin in the league on the weekend, but the game was postponed because of heavy snow at the Allianz.

Juventus v Atalanta Betting Tips

It is a solid position for Juventus at the moment to be in holding a 1-0 lead from the first leg. Now they are heading back home for the second leg they will be expected to hold onto the advantage that they have earned. They have only lost one game at home this season in all competitions and they've won four of their last five there (D1). They are such a strong home side and before Tottenham played out a 2-2 draw in Turin in the Champions League recently, Juventus had taken a clean sheet in their seven previous home games. Juventus to win to nil at BetVictor is at 11/8 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:18 p.m. on February 25th, 2018). Juve are such an efficient machine on home soil really and you kind of just always expect them to go out and get the job done. In the correct score market, the 1-0 home win option is at the head of the market and there have been a lot of tight meetings between these two clubs recently. There was a 2-2 draw between them in the league at Atalanta earlier this season which was the scoreline in last season's corresponding fixture there as well. They did meet up in the Coppa Italia last season and Juventus took a one-goal margin victory at home over them there. A Juventus to win by a one-goal margin in this current meeting is at 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 9:22 p.m. on February 25th, 2018). Overall in the head to head between the two clubs, Juventus absolutely dominat things as they are 32-4 ahead with the eleven drawn matches. In the Coppa Italia things are a little tighter though. This is the seventh game between them in the Coppa Italia and Juventus are 3-2 up with the one drawn match from those previous clashes. Atalanta do have it in them to haul themselves back into this tie. They have only lost one of her last nine games now away from home in all competitions, and that defeat was a 3-2 loss out at Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Europa League clash in the round of 32 back in February 15th. Atalanta have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven away games which is a really good return for them and so they will still fancy their chances of at least making this interesting. Both teams to score at Bet Victor is at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:18 p.m. on February 25th, 2018) if you fancy backing the visitors to get on the board. It may be worth a flutter too as they have only failed to score in one away game all season in all competitions. That having been said, they have just the two clean sheets on their travels all term. Can they claw their way back into this?

Juventus v Atalanta Betting Odds*

Juventus 11/20, Draw 14/5, Atalanta 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 11:18 p.m. on February 25th, 2018)

Juventus v Atalanta Predictions

Juventus should have the strengths to play out the victory in this one. Atlanta are never a pushover, but it is just so hard to get the better of Juve at the Allianz and therefore back the home side to get through it by a one goal margin.

Juventus v Tottenham Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th February 2018

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.).

Juventus v Tottenham 2018 Infographic

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’s 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.

Juventus v Roma Predictions & Betting Odds – 23rd December 2017

European Football
Juventus v Roma Betting Preview - Serie A 23rd December 7.45pm There’s a huge top four clash from Serie A to look forward to on Saturday as Roma make the trip to Juventus. This should be a fantastic battle as Juventus haven’t quite had things all their own way this season in the race for the league title and Roma could pull level with the Old Lady if they can be themselves a win in Turin. This should be some showdown between two very good teams.

Juventus v Roma Betting Tips

Juve go into the weekend in second place in the league and they have gone W4 D1 L1 in their last six games. Their last home game saw them play out a 0-0 draw with Inter Milan, who sit just a place behind them in the league standings. Juventus holds a W7 D 1 L1 record at home this season in the league, the only reverse happening against Lazio. They are really being pushed in the title race this season by Napoli, Inter and Roma to some extent. There’s a great battle going up there and there’s little margin for error. Juve have remained strong at the back and they have taken a clean sheet in each of their last four games. Juventus to win to nil at William Hill is worth considering because Roma are more of a defensive side than a powerful attacking one. Juve have scored 21 goals at home this season and have conceded just the four in their nine games. 78% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Juventus have won their last six home games against Roma now so they are carrying that good streak of form in the head to head. Their last two home wins have been by a 1-0 scoreline over Roma and a Juventus 1-0 correct score at William Hill is a decent option for the game. Each of the last four meetings between the two clubs have ended in a home win so the head to head is pretty even recently and in the last six Serie A clashes, Juventus are W3 D1 L2 against Roma. Juventus have scored the opening goal in 71% of their matches and they have been leading at halftime in 65% of their matches. Paulo Dybala is their top scorer for the season with a twelve goal haul and five of those have been on home soil and he is the second favourite in the anytime goalscorer market to teammate Gonzalo Higuain who is at 11/10. Roma have impressed this season with 38 points from their sixteen league games and this is such an important game for them. A win takes them level on points with Juventus and they will still hold a game in hand over the Old Lady as well. Roma are the lowest scoring of the current top six in Serie A but they have the best defensive record in all of the Italian top flight. They are unbeaten in their last nine games now, part of a W12 D2 L2 record they have recorded overall this season. Their only two losses this season happened at home against Inter and Napoli, two of the three sides above them. Roma have taken a clean sheet in both of their last two games played and so can hold their own. They have taken a clean sheet in 71% of their away games, scoring in 88% of them. Away from home, they have only shipped the three goals while they have averaged 1.8 of their own. It has been impressive stuff from them and Edin Dzeko goes as their 6/4 anytime goalscorer shortest-priced option.

Juventus v Roma Betting Odds

Juventus 3/4, Draw 14/5, Roma 15/4

Juventus v Roma Predictions

Even though Roma are going well and they have a tough defence to break down, Juventus still look a bit of value to go and collect the win in this one. They have such good home form going against Roma for one, and second is that they have strung together some excellent form of their own lately. A 1-0 correct score for Juve looks a decent proposition.

Juventus v Barcelona Predictions & Betting Odds – 22nd November 2017

Barcelona
Juventus v Barcelona Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 22nd November 7.45pm A big high profile match and if this game ends up in a draw it would sort of suit both of them. A draw wins the group of Barcelona while a point sees Juventus go and lock in second place in the group. So the draw will likely have some appeal in the match outright. Earlier in the group campaign, Juventus were destroyed by Barcelona at the Nou Camp and will at least be looking for a bit of revenge.

Juventus v Barcelona Betting Tips

This game in Turin now is going to be the highlight of the Wednesday night fixtures for match day five. All that the Italians have to do is avoid defeat in the game to book a place in the round of sixteen. If it ends up as a draw then it will mean that both of these go through to the next round. If Juventus though want to try and push on and actually top the group then they need to roll out a victory in this one. Juventus rolled out a stunning 3-0 home win over the Catalans in the quarter finals last season but suffered a big 3-0 defeat at the Nou Camp back on match day one of this season’s campaign. Since losing to Barcelona on match day one, Juve have recovered to a W2 D1 L1 record. At home, they have taken a 2-0 win over Olympiakos and a 2-1 victory over Sporting. There really should be goals in this fixture and over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 9/10.

Their 3-0 win over Barcelona in Turin in the first leg of the quarter finals was a crucial result that allowed them to play out a 0-0 draw back at the Nou Camp. Can they rally themselves to produce another to home performance of that magnitude against the Spaniard?. In the bet365 correct score market, the shortest priced Juventus victory is 1-0 option at a price of 17/2. The 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option at 11/2. The Bianconeri have a massive streak of unbeaten home form in Europe going as they are now undefeated in 25 games (W16 D9), so that’s impressive and they have a great home record against Spanish opposition as well. Juve are W15 D8 L2 at home against La Liga opposition and are unbeaten in their last eight at home against Spanish visitors. They have lost just one of their last 24 games in Turin against Spanish opponents (W15 D8). So that’s all fantastic reading for them. Their main options in the anytime goalscorer market are Gonzalo Higuain at 5/4 and Paulo Dyeable at 11/8. Juve slipped to a defeat against Sampdoria in Serie A on the week, their first loss in seven in all competitions. Just a draw then suits Barcelona as that is good enough to win them the group. Barcelona are W3 D1 so far in their campaign, surprisingly being held to a 0-0 draw at Olympiakos on match day four in Piraeus. That was like a victory for the Greeks. Barcelona are in control of the group, but they don’t have great form out in Italy. Their away record against Italian clubs is W6 D9 L6 but they are actually without a win in any of their last five visits there with a D3 L2 record. Away from home in this season’s UEFA Champions League group stage, they took a 1-0 win at Sporting before that 0-0 draw at Olympiakos so the goals haven’t flowed for them particularly. Still, both teams to score at bet365 is a price of 7/10 because of the scoring power that is on show in this one and Juve need to attack to try and top the group. Barca are unbeaten in 17 matches in all competitions, winning 15, and have kept 12 clean sheets during that run. Barcelona to win to nil at bet365 is a price of 10/3. Looking at Barcelona’s away from in Europe, it isn’t particularly strong, with only five wins in their last thirteen road games in the UEFA Champions League and they have lost three of their last six on the road, including a 4-0 loss at PSG last season and their 3-0 defeat at Juventus. So they haven't been in great shape away from the Nou Camp. The last time that the Blaugrana failed to get beyond the round of sixteen in the UEFA Champions League was way back in 2006/07. Lionel Messi has been having a prolific season in front of goal and he is a price of 4/5 in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market with Luis Suarez at 7/5. Messi has 19 goals in 23 outings for club and country this term and he only needs three more to make it to 100 UEFA Champions League goals. He is 11/4 favourite in the first goalscorer market.
