Of all the Champions League ties left to play in the round of 16, this is perhaps the closest and most intriguing. Juventus were beaten finalists in last season’s competition, but they will have to score at least once at Wembley if they are to advance against Tottenham Hotspur following a 2-2 draw in Turin.
That game showed that Spurs are one of the most impressive teams on the continent currently, and they showed good maturity to come back from two early goals. Crucially, the north Londoners have already beaten Real Madrid at the English national stadium and they will therefore feel that, when at their best, there is no side in Europe’s elite club competition that they are not capable of beating.
Domestically Spurs have been in very strong form; they are undefeated in 2018 and their last two wins – over Rochdale and Huddersfield Town – have meant that they are into the FA Cup quarter-finals and fourth in the Premier League respectively.
Striker Harry Kane netted in the first-leg and the Englishman has shown that he is one of the world’s most complete forwards. As good as Juve are defensively, keeping him away from Gianluigi Buffon’s goal is of upmost importance on Wednesday night.
Since the first-leg, the Old Lady have won each of their three games 1-0 – including two away from the Juventus Stadium – and the same result in London would be enough to see the Italians into the quarter-finals of the Champions League once again.
Juve are boosted by Gonzalo Higuain’s return to training. The Argentine scored twice in the first game, as well as missing a penalty, but had been an injury doubt for this fixture.
Tipbet have a massive 105 markets to bet on for this Champions League fixture. The game is sure to be intense, and Spurs, with their two away goals, are rated as more likely to both win in normal time (2.20) and advance by any means (1.40).
Juventus are one of the strongest sides in Europe, though, and can be backed at 2.90 to reach the quarter-finals. Extra-time (6.00) is possible with another 2-2 draw. Many more betting options can be viewed.
