Juventus Betting Analysis

Juventus ended with egg on their face after scoring two goals within the first 10 minutes of the first match to then allowing Tottenham to tie at 2-2 in the final score.

Christian Ericksen’s equalizer in the 71st minute now puts a black cloud on Juventus’ aspirations to make it to the next stage of the competition as this game will be played in England.

Wembley Stadium will not be welcoming for La Vecchia Signora and Massimiliano Allegri’s squad will have to fight tooth and nail to gain valuable away goals.

Even if some players such as Gonzalo Higuain and Miralem Pjanic have downplayed the first game’s result, it is clear Juventus’ position is dire.

Even if Higuain should be fit to play against Tottenham, the striker will have an uphill struggle to find the back of the net. Equally, Juve will have to work hard to keep a clean sheet, however unlikely, given their difficulties to contain Tottenham’s scoring opportunities in the first match.

Tottenham Betting Analysis

Tottenham’s comeback at Juventus now gives Mauricio Pochettino’s squad a great advantage as this game will be played at Wembley Stadium.

Though Tottenham started the first match conceding two goals within the first 10 minutes of the match, which would curb most team’s motivation, that they managed to equalize the score can give them the drive needed to pass through to the next stage.

Tottenham hasn’t really done well in the Champions, but this is arguably its best run yet. Should they get past Juventus, it could announce this team’s ascension in Europe’s most elite soccer competition.

The Spurs will look to Harry Kane to work his magic and find the back of the net; though Kane was initially denied a goal by Juventus’ goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, he’ll undoubtedly find it easier to score on his home grounds.

Wembley Stadium has been a stronghold for the Lilywhites as they’ve not lost there since October, winning 11 and drawing two and having played well through three matches in the group stage of this competition.

Tottenham scored in all three group-stage games, defeating beating Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, and Apoel Nicosia.

Prediction: Tottenham will come out gunning to score in the first half of the game. From then on out, it’ll be a close game where Juventus will equalize the score but lose in the aggregate.
