Juventus vs Tottenham Prediction
This is a tough game to predict due to the excellent form of both teams. It will be a true football battle in the midfield and we expect aggressive playing from the both sides. Juve like to play strong and aggressive football in defending, but ball possession will be their main objective on Tuesday night. Juventus are undefeated in 19 of their last 21 matches in the Champions League and they are closer to win all three points in front of their fans. But it can't be an easy job. Tottenham play very good football this season, picking up 16 points to finish ahead of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL in the group stage. Harry Kane found the back of the net six times in the group stage and he will be the most dangerous player, especially after corners. It will be one tough game but we expect to see several good scoring chances for the both teams.
