The draw for the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League has taken place and thrown up some intriguing clashes. Here we have for you Juventus vs Tottenham predictions.
Last season, Juventus would have welcomed this draw as Tottenham Hotspur were not a team to be feared in European competition. They had done well in the Premier League but in terms of the Champions League, little progress was made.
However, things have changed this season and while Tottenham Hotspur have been struggling at times in the Premier League, they have been superb in the Champions League and a trip to the Allianz Stadium in Turin should hold no fear for Mauricio Pochettino and his players.
1. Juventus v Tottenham Hotspur Odds Preview
Juventus reached the Champions League final last season only to lose to Real Madrid in the final. This season they were grouped with Barcelona, Sporting Lisbon and Olympiakos.
Despite disappointing results in Barcelona and Lisbon, Juventus qualified for the Round of 16 comfortably in second place and have great experience when it comes to this stage of the Champions League.
Their record at home is excellent and they are undefeated in their last 9 home matches, winning 7 of the last 9 on home soil. Therefore, Juventus are favourites at 2.25 to win this game.
Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Turin believing they have what it takes to get something from the match and give themselves a good chance in the home leg. Their defeat of Borussia Dortmund and draw at Real Madrid means Tottenham Hotspur must be taken seriously in this game by the hosts and could cause them plenty of problems.
A victory for the away side at 3.75 may be out of reach but the draw is not and that is on offer at 3.20 with William Hill.

2. Juventus vs Tottenham Betting Tips
A feature of Tottenham Hotspur’s play in the Champions League has been their ability to score goals, especially away from home. They have netted in all three of their away games in the group this season, including at the Santiago Bernabeu and Signal Iduna Park.
However, they also conceded in both those matches and only once in their last 9 home Champions League games have Juventus failed to score a goal.
Both teams to score is 3.20.
Juventus have not had things all their own way in both Europe and Serie A this season. There have been dropped points at home each competition and this will give Tottenham Hotspur some hope they can take a draw from this game, with a crucial away goal.
The draw with both teams to score is 4.20.
Juventus have no suspension concerns for this game and should also have Benedikt Howedes and Stephan Lichtsteiner available having suffered from injury in the group stages. Juventus will have to deal with Paulo Dybala, Juan Cuadrado, Andrea Barzagli and Blaise Matuidi absence though...
Tottenham will be without Toby Alderweireld, Juan Foyth and Kyle Walker-Peters. Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli are their men to look out for in attack.
