UEFA Champions League -- Match Time：2/14/2018 03:45 Wednesday (GMT+8)
Juventus: On a very good run (Recent Form: WWWWWW)
Juventus are in good shape as they are currently on an 11-match winning run in domestic competitions. ‘The Bianconeri’ take on Tottenham on Tuesday in the first-leg of UEFA Champions League tie. “We have to play with brain, technique and try not to concede but I would not settle for a 0-0 draw before starting. We know their strengths and we know that we will have to suffer for some parts of the game because Tottenham have four players with great quality in attack. But we grew up, especially in terms of confidence, and we did that because we have achieved very good results in Europe. Only Real Madrid have done better in my opinion in recent years,” said coach Massimiliano Allegri. Cuadrado, Matuidi, Höwedes, Dybala, Barzagli are unavailable.
Probable line-ups: Buffon; De Sciglio, Benatia, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Pjanić, Bentancur; Douglas Costa, Higuaín, Mandžukić
Tottenham: Unbeaten in 2018 (Recent Form: WWDWDD)
Tottenham, just like their rivals, also appear to be in very good form as they remain undefeated this year. Now it’s time for interesting away encounter in UCL. “Juventus are a massive club. They reached the Champions League final twice in the last three years. It's impossible to compare our history with Juventus' one but we have a good plan and we want to reach the level of Juventus. Tomorrow we will see if we can compete with them,” said manager Mauricio Pochettino. There should be no absences.
Probable line-ups: Lloris; Trippier, Sánchez, Vertonghen; Son, Dembélé, Dier, Davies; Eriksen, Alli; Kane
THE BETTING VERDICT:
All in all, I think that this might be a low-scoring clash. This is the first-leg so a cautious approach can be expected, besides both teams are strong defensively and perhaps there may be not much action in this game.
Juventus VS Tottenham
O/U Pick: under 2.25 goals
