Daily Tips – Juve to grind it out at Wembley

458

Tottenham face the biggest night in their recent history and will be severely tested against Juventus.

The pair’s Champions League last-16 second leg clash looks set to be a delight for us neutrals and a real chess match between Mauricio Pochettino and Massimiliano Allegri.

Juve looked to have the tie done and dusted when they went 2-0 up after nine minutes in the first game but were pegged back by a brilliant Spurs performance as the Lilywhites claimed two away goals in a 2-2 draw.

Wembley has also been kind to them in recent months but there is no doubt that for all their quality, Pochettino’s side do tend to freeze on the big night.

Some may level the same accusation at Juve, having lost in the final of this competition in both 2015 and 2017.

However, Allegri has acknowledged that fatigue was an issue on both occasions and is building their season so that they peak in May this time around.

I fancy both to score at 5/6 and I am also tempted to back experience. As Saturday’s 1-0 win at Lazio again demonstrated, Juve are the masters at grinding out results and for all Spurs’ talent, grit could win this one and the Bianconeri are tempting at 5/2.

Manchester City will also blow Basel away in the other Champions League match, while the same could be the said at Elland Road where Leeds host Championship leaders Wolves.

Nuno Santo’s men had the weekend off and, having seen Leeds bomb at Middlesbrough on Friday, an away win is surprisingly good at 1/1, as is the 2/1 on offer for the visitors to be leading at both half-time and full-time.
