The Old Lady have reasons to believe that this Juventus vs Tottenham Hotspur fixture will work out to their advantage.

They have made it difficult for every opponent to score against them, this season.
But, make no mistake, Juventus will not have easy in this Juventus vs Tottenham Hotspur fixture as the visitors have proven their mettle in the group stage. Bossing the defending Champions Real Madrid, Spurs topped Group H with 16 points, staying unbeaten and dropping points in only one game.

Juventus vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction
Tottenham have an excellent front line to boast with the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli good enough for any side – and Real Madrid would vouch for that. However, we are talking about the Juventus side that has become adept at managing clean sheets. Will it be easy for Tottenham to go past this defensive shield of Juventus? It is easy to see that this game would be a low-scoring encounter. We are backing this to be under 2.5 goals and don’t be surprised if a single goal determines the winner. Juventus could end up being the winners of this leg, considering the tightness of this fixture and the importance of a home win.
