2018 Champions League Betting Predictions: Juventus vs Tottenham

Looking for 2018 Champions League Betting Predictions? You’re in the right place, because we’ve got the football prediction for tomorrow’s Champion League game between Tottenham and Juventus.

Last year, Tottenham didn’t get too far in this competition, but now they find themselves renovated and with a good shot of passing through the Round of 16, let’s look at what you can expect.

Juventus vs Tottenham Betting Prediction

When:  Feb 13 @ 2:45 PM
Where: Turin, Italy
Line: Juventus +100 vs Tottenham +305; Draw: +225

Betting on Juventus

The Italians had a rough patch at the start of the season; however, they bounced back and now have a 16-game undefeated streak heading into the Round of 16.

In fact, this record is even more impressive when you consider they haven’t allowed but one goal during this stretch which is good and well because of their opponent’s ability to find the back of the net.

Clearly, if there’s any team that can stop Tottenham from making goals, it’s Juventus.

Juve has been dominant in Serie A this season; thus far, they’ve won all 11 games played, including a 2-0 win over rivals Fiorentina their last time out.

This has been accomplished despite the absence of Leonardo Bonucci, who left at the start of the season to join AC Milan’s ranks.

In Bonucci’s stead, Medhi Benatia and Andrea Barzacli have joined Giorgio Chiellini to clamp down on defense.

This match will be difficult for Juve however because they find themselves without a number of key players including Paulo Dybala, Juan Cuadrado, and Blaise Matuidi who are all injured.

Regardless, Juve should still be able to hold their ground and deny Tottenham’s goals though limited on the offensive.

Juventus Likely Starting Eleven

Buffon; Lichtsteiner, Chiellini, Benatia, Sandro; Marchisio, Pjanic, Khedira; Bernardeschi, Higuain, Mandzukic.

Betting on Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino’s team grabbed 15 of the 18 possible points in the knockout stage and finished atop a group that included Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

However, their next opponent presents a real challenge as Juventus has reached two of the last three Champions League finals.

Tottenham also lacks experience in facing Juventus. Except for a pre-season friendly, where the Spurs won 2-0 at Wembley last year, these two have never competed against in a competitive setting.

The Spurs hope to build on the success achieved in the Premier League where they’ve recently defeated Arsenal.

Key to Tottenham’s success is striker Harry Kane, who is the front-runner for the European Golden Shoe.

Joining Kane up front are the likes of Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, And Heung-Min Son, who are deadly in finding the back of the net.

Tottenham Likely Starting Eleven

Lloris; Trippier, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Davies; Dembele, Dier, Eriksen, Alli, Son; Kane.

Matchup to Watch

Harry Kane vs Giorgio Chiellini: This matchup might determine the game’s outcome. If Chiellini is unable to stop, or slow, Kane down it’s likely Tottenham will come out of Italy with a win.

Prediction: This game is difficult to predict. However, I believe Tottenham will come out with a 1-1 draw.
