Tottenham Hotspur may have had their troubles in recent European campaigns but this season they have been superb and Mauricio Pochettino and his players know they can achieve something special this season.

They finished top of a group containing Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund and despite playing away from their home stadium, Tottenham Hotspur defeated both teams at Wembley and were convincing winners.

Real Madrid are one of the biggest names in the Champions League and looking to win the tournament for a third successive season. Therefore, if Tottenham Hotspur can defeat them at Wembley, there is every reason to believe they can do the same to last seasons defeated finalists, Juventus.

Tottenham Hotspur are favourites with the bookmakers to win the match at 2.15 with Bet365. They are also the favourites to qualify for the next round at 1.36.

It’s not often Juventus come into the second leg of a Round of 16 Champions League tie as the team unfancied to progress but that’s exactly what they are, priced at 3.40 to win the match.

Juventus looked in control of the tie having taken a 2-0 lead in the first leg in Italy but Tottenham Hotspur came back into the game, scoring 2 away goals and that could be difference.

2. Tottenham vs Juventus Predictions

While Tottenham Spurs have been very good at home in the Champions League this season, they have struggled to keep out the bigger teams. Both Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund scored at Wembley and Juventus will need a goal to qualify.

Both teams to score is 1.75 with Bet365.

Juventus have won just two of their last five away Champions League games and have scored an average of 1 goal per game. This suggest they are unlikely to play open, attacking football and will instead try and keep things tight at the back, before taking any chances which come their way.

Juventus to score 1 goal is 2.50 with Ladbrokes and unless they keep a clean sheet, it would not be good enough to see them qualify.

3. Team News

Looking ahead to the potential team news and Tottenham will be without right-back Serge Aurier, who is suspended following his booking in the first leg. That should mean a place in the starting XI for Kieran Trippier. Toby Alderweireld also could miss the match.

Juventus have a few players with injuries in the lead up the is match, the most notable of which are Gonzalo Higuain and Federico Bernardeschi. The former is expected to be back in time for the match but Bernardeschi is doubtful.
