Cristiano Ronaldo 3/1 to win Champions League with Juventus

Football Betting
It is official. Cristiano Ronaldo will be Juventus player next season after Real Madrid accept a ÂŁ99 million bid for the forward. The 33-year-old will now move on to a new challenge after nine years at the Bernabeu and while he is not going to end up being the most expensive footballer in the world, the move does ensure that is the most expensive footballer in the world over the age of 30. During his time at Real Madrid, he collected four Champions League titles and two La Liga titles. While that may not sound a lot in nine years he, of course, has achieved so much more. Like all of his personal awards and all of the goalscoring records that he has set in his time with the club. During his time with Real Madrid, he had six different seasons having netted over 50 goals for them. Will those kinds of goalscoring exploits continue in Turin? He is currently 3/1 to score 40 or more goals in Serie A next season or he can be backed at 12/1 to make it to at least 50 which would be some feat*(Betting Odds were taken from Betfair on July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.). It was in the UEFA Champions League last season against Juventus when he scored that ridiculous overhead kick and he is 5/2 to score a bicycle kick* (Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) in Serie A next season while the Portuguese star is at 4/5 to be the Serie A top goalscorer*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.).

What does he bring to Juventus?

The bigger question really is what he will bring to Juventus? They are the powerhouses of Italy and they have been one of the big forces in the UEFA Champions League. Juventus are a 9/1 option at the moment*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) to win the UEFA Champions League next season with Ronaldo in their ranks and you can even back the Portuguese star at 3/1 to get a goal against his now former club Real Madrid*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.). You can also take that same price on him winning the Champions League at any time during his stay at Juventus. Ronaldo is set to sign a four-year contract with the Turin giants. What his arrival will do is strengthen their domestic power and the Old Lady is at 2/5 to win Serie A next season*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.).

Transfer Knock-on Effect

Gareth Bale is now 1/4 odds to stay at Real Madrid*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) at the summer transfer window. Much has been made about him leaving over the summer after not getting as much game time as he would have liked last term. Ronaldo going will have created space for him. Beyond the Spanish giants, Manchester United are the club at the shortest price to be his club next season with the Red Devils at 10/3 odds*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.). So Bale may get a reprieve at the Bernabeu if he wants to stay but it is likely that Real Madrid are going to go and spend to rejuvenate their squad. The speculation is that they are going to break the bank to get Neymar there and he is a 2/1 option*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) to join up with them for next season. Another likely strong target for Real Madrid is going to be Eden Hazard who is at 5/4*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) to make the move there, with other notable target names being Kylian Mbappe, Mo Salah and Harry Kane.

CR7 odds to make sensational move back to Old Trafford

Next Manager Betting & Transfers
Is Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the Bernabeu in the summer? This week there were reports that Real Madrid were entertaining a blockbuster bid from Juventus. The rumours are swelling around and Juventus have made their move knowing that Real Madrid are looking to shake things up over the summer after finishing a long way back of last season’s La Liga winners Barcelona. So there may we be the temptation to move 33-year-old Ronaldo out of the door and go on the search for fresh legs. Since the reported move by Juventus for Ronaldo, that has sparked up the speculation that Real Madrid are going to go and then try to renew their interest in getting former Barcelona man Neymar from PSG. That would be something. Juventus is 2/13 to be Ronaldo’s club* (betting odds were taken from July 7th, 2018 at 3:23 am) after the summer transfer window at Unibet with some operators suspending betting on the market after punters piled into it. Real Madrid is 16/5 odds* (betting odds were taken from July 7th, 2018 at 3:23 am) to still be the talisman’s club next season. Despite winning another Champions League title earlier this year with Ronaldo, the time looks right for the two to part ways. Ronaldo is certainly not getting any younger but he would be a good fit for someone like Juve who have been on the periphery of winning the Champions League over the last couple of seasons. His arrival could just spark that edge challenge needed to get over the line. However, while the Portuguese striker looks destined for Turin, could there be a twist? Could CR7 be making a sensational return to Manchester United? Earlier this summer Ronaldo was priced up at 16/1 odds* (betting odds were taken from July 7th, 2018 at 3:23 am) to make a return to the Red Devils but on Friday bookmakers were receiving a surge of bets on him making a return to the Theatre of Dreams, with one operator cutting him from 14/1 to 8/1. Unibet have Manchester United at 10/1* (betting odds were taken from July 7th, 2018 at 3:23 am) to be Ronaldo’s club after the summer. There is, of course, the thought that he could be used as bait for PSG to get Neymar going the other way.

Juventus v AC Milan Predictions & Betting Odds – 9th May 2018

European Football
Juventus v AC Milan Betting Tips - Coppa Italia Final 9th May 8.00pm It is the Final of the Coppa Italia in midweek and Juventus are standing on the threshold of a domestic double. They have taken control of the Serie A title race and booked a comfortable win on the weekend. AC Milan also won in the league on Saturday and they will be heading into this showdown as underdogs. Can they prevent Juve from getting at least one of the pieces of silverware that they seem destined for?

Juventus News and Form

With Juve now fully within touching distance of the league title, needing just one more point, so they can be more relaxed about focusing on the Coppa Italia title. They have been going strong again and they haven’t had many off days at the office this season really to speak about. They started their cup campaign with a 2-0 home win over Genoa, then they beat Atalanta 2-0 on aggregate in the semi-finals. A lot of the strength of Juventus is at the back, how well they defend and put themselves on the line. However, they have only managed to take the two clean sheets in their last nine games in all competitions. One of those was a 3-1 league win over AC Milan so both teams to at bet365 is a good 3/4 odds option* (Betting Odds taken at 11:45 pm. on May 6th, 2018). The Old Lady are W5 D1 L1 in their last seven games in all competitions and they scored at least three goals in each of those wins through that sequence. In the bet365 correct score market a Juventus 3-1 result is at 16/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:45pm. on May 6th, 2018) which is a repeat of their recent league meeting, while the shortest priced option is a Juventus 1-0 at 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 11:45 pm. on May 6th, 2018). AC Milan haven't really been in hot form at all as they have gone W2 D4 L2 in their last eight matches (all league games). But they haven't been beaten too often and the two wins in that sequence were in their last two games, so that is positive that they can take from that. They haven’t been prolific in front of goal either really and before their back to back wins, they had netted just two goals in five games. They can’t open up and go toe to toe with the attacking power of Juve, because AC Milan don’t have that same kind of scoring threat. In Serie A, Juventus have scored over 30 goals more than AC Milan have. Milan opened their Coppa Italia campaign with a win over Verona and then after two 0-0 legs in the semi-final against Lazio, AC Milan won through on a penalty shootout. Do they have enough to trouble the Old Lady?

Juventus v AC Milan Head to Head

Juventus are well up in the recent head to head duels with Milan and have already won both league meetings with them this season in Serie A. Both of those Juventus wins were by a two-goal margin as well which leaves Juventus on a three-match winning streak against AC Milan. The last time they met in the Coppa Italia was in the 2016 final and Juventus won that 1-0. From the nine previous Coppa Italia ties that these two have contested, Juventus are unbeaten at W4 D5.

Juventus v AC Milan Betting Odds*

Juventus 11/13, Draw 13/5, AC Milan 4/1* (Betting Odds taken at 3:35 a.m. on May 6th, 2018)

Juventus v AC Milan Predictions

Juventus to win: The Old Lady do have the edge and now with less pressure on them in the Serie A title race, they should be able to relax and go and enjoy themselves here. AC Milan are on the brink of being major force once again, but they may well end up second best.

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 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.

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.

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.
