Tottenham vs Juventus Match Preview
In a Champions League knockout encounter, getting away goals is golden dust. Tottenham Hotspur have achieved that with two in the away leg and would be confident of usurping Juventus in the second leg. This Tottenham vs Juventus fixture will be played at Wembley on Wednesday, March 7, so check out our Tottenham vs Juventus prediction and betting tips.
There is no doubt that Spurs went into their away leg as underdogs and their task looked all the more difficult when Gonzalo Higuain scored a couple of goals inside the first ten minutes. However, they responded incredibly well to come back home with a 2-2 draw. That should put the hosts as favourites in this Tottenham Hotspur vs Juventus second leg fixture, as away goals are crucial in knockout matches. Since that draw in Turin, Tottenham have managed to win three and draw one of their four matches in all competitions. That run has seen them storm back into the top four of the Premier League standings and will definitely feel confident of their chances in this game. Having scored in 22 of their 23 home games this season, the hosts should feel that they can score enough goals to achieve what is required to progress.
Juventus, though, will be a very difficult team to beat. It was not a favourable result for the Bianconeri in the first leg, especially after going 2-0 up within the first ten minutes. They have, however, improved their form since, winning all three games after that. This run has helped them cut the lead to Napoli at the top of Serie A to just one point, with one game in hand. However, the visitors will be wary of the threat that Spurs pose in their Champions League progression hopes in this Tottenham Hotspur vs Juventus second leg fixture. There is an injury cloud over the availability of Gonzalo Higuain and if he doesn’t play, then it could be very difficult for the visitors.

Tottenham vs Juventus Prediction
There is so much quality on both sides that you can’t miss this tip. Though the Old Lady have improved their defence after the first leg, there should be goals at both ends in this fixture. If you are looking for a specific goal scorer, Harry Kane could be a good pick to find the back of the net for the hosts. The tie is still wide open which means both sides have equal opportunity to progress and that should make this a very open game, so BTS/Yes looks like a good betting tip.
