Spurs in pole position to see off Juve

457

Tottenham have surprised many with their Champions League exploits this term and Juventus are on the verge of becoming their latest European scalp.

When you consider that 10 minutes into the first leg, Spurs were already 2-0 down – Mauricio Pochettino’s men will have been an incredible price to qualify from there.

But Tottenham rallied to claim a 2-2 draw in Turin and put them in a strong position to make the quarter finals (2/5 in the betting), especially with two away-goals under their belt ahead of Wednesday’s return leg.

The Wembley hoodoo that was mentioned earlier in the season has been vanquished and Pochettino’s side are unbeaten in their last 15 games in all competitions at the national stadium.

Granted, Juventus are on a fantastic run themselves having gone 20 games without defeat – with three wins and three clean sheets on the bounce (11/4 Clean Sheet Market).

The Serie A champions have been short of firepower though in front of goal, with just three goals in those last three games, with one of those a penalty.

As Max Allegri’s men have to come forward in search of a goal, Tottenham have the pace and guile to hit them on the break and seal a spot in the last eight (Match Betting – Spurs 6/5, Draw 49/20, Juventus 51/20).

Meanwhile, another heavyweight battle this week sees Paris Saint-Germain go toe-to-toe with defending champions Real Madrid on Tuesday (Match Betting – PSG 21/20, Draw 3/1, Real Madrid 12/5).

Real Madrid hold a 3-1 lead from the first leg and their European experience should see them through – especially with Cristiano Ronaldo in goalscoring form.

The current World Footballer of the Year has bagged ten goals in Real’s last seven fixtures, including two in the first leg.

With no Neymar for the hosts, Ronaldo (9/2 to score first) will look to show he’s the main man for the big occasion.
