Tip Juventus - Tottenham
Juventus are on a fantastic run at present but so are their opponents in this Champions League last sixteen tie. The Italian side are undefeated in their last 16 league and cup games with wins in each of their last 11 and seven straight clean sheets. Home form in particular is impressive and in their last 14 home Champions League games, only Barcelona and Real Madrid have left Turin with a win. You have to go back eight home games and to November 5 since Juventus last conceded a home goal but there could be some fireworks in this tie. Despite all the great stats, Juventus are only second in Serie A but only a point behind Napoli who are already out of the Champions League. Tottenham are also on a long unbeaten run and it's 12 league and cup games since they lost away to Manchester City. Lots of eyes will of course be on Harry Kane but Spurs also have other key players that Juventus need to be wary of. The likes of Son, Eriksen and Ali all have to be on form if Spurs are to reach the quarter finals. This could be a tense game and the bet is to go for Juventus to get a narrow win to take to Wembley for the second leg.
Key points Juventus - Tottenham
Juventus have won their last 11 games.
Juventus have kept eight straight home clean sheets.
Tottenham have failed to win any of their last three away games.
Tottenham have only won two of their last five away Champions League matches.
Conclusion Juventus - Tottenham
Juventus are always a match for most teams that take them on and it takes the very best to get a win in Turin. The Italians are in great form at present and their defence has almost forgotten what it's like to concede a goal, especially at home. Spurs had a good group gettiing that home win over Real Madrid, but that might flatter them after the struggles that the Spanish side have been having. Juventus have more experience and with home advantage can get a narrow win here.
