Prediction Champions League Tottenham Hotspur – Juventus Torino

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club

Tottenham Hotspur won the home match at Wembley with Huddersfield Town with a score of 2-0, the two goals scored by South Korean striker Son Heung-min in minutes 27 and 54. It was his third consecutive victory Tottenham after those with Arsenal (1-0 at home) and Crystal Palace (1-0, away). In addition, the London team also played in the English Cup on their own home with Rochdale AFC, which surpassed it with the score of 6-1.

After 29 rounds, the team coached by Mauricio Pochettino is ranked 4th with 58 points. The stage this weekend was perfect for Spurs because they won the match with Huddersfield Town, while Chelsea lost to Manchester City and now has a 5-point lead over the champion. Tottenham’s goal is to rank 2-4 in order to play in the Champions League next season.

Tottenham has earned the Champions League’s H Group without excitement without losing any matches, although it has had two extremely strong opponents. The British got 16 points, followed by Real Madrid 13 points, Borussia Dortmund 2 points and APOEL Nicosia 2 points. In the finals they played in Torino with Juventus in the first leg, achieving a very promising result in qualifying in the quarter-finals, 2-2.

According to Fortuna, “qualifies Popescu” has a 1.40 share, while “qualifies Juventus” has a 3.00. So the English are favorites after the Turin result on the tour, but they will certainly have a very hard game, because in the end they will play with the best Italian team in recent years. The hosts can not count on the right-wing defender Igor Serge Aurier, who is suspended due to the cumulus of yellow cards. Belgian central defender Toby Alderweireld has an uncertain situation, but he seems to be recovering until the match with the Italians.

Juventus Football Club S.p.A.

Juventus Torino won a lucky victory over the “Stadio Olimpico”, where he defeated SS Lazio with a score of 1-0, defeating the goal 90 + 3 by Argentinian Paulo Dybala. In the middle of the week, the Turin group qualified in the Italian Cup final after eliminating Atalanta Bergamo with a double win, 1-0 in the tour and 1-0 in the return.

After 26 rounds, Massimiliano Allegri’s team is ranked second with 68 points, with one less than SSC Napoli, but “Vecchia Signora” has a less played match with Atalanta Bergamo. At this stage, which was postponed due to the death of Davide Astori, Napoli was able to play the “Stadio San Paolo” with AS Roma, being defeated by a 4-2 score, so Juve probably will be the first.

This season, “Bianconeri” will try to win the “triple” – the Italian championship, the Italian Cup and the Champions League. In Group D of the Champions League, the Italians ranked second with 11 points, after FC Barcelona 14 points, but before Sporting Lisbon 7 points and Olympiakos Pireu 1 point. In the finals, Juventus Torino has only managed a draw at home with Tottenham Hotspur, 2-2 (Gonzalo Higuaín 2, 9 penalty – Harry Kane 35, Christian Eriksen 71). Argentinian Gonzalo Higuaín missed a 11 meter shot at 45 + 2.

So for Juventus everything is clear, so he can still hope for qualification, is forced to score “Wembley” against Tottenham. The Italians played the final of the Champions League last season, which they lost to Real Madrid (1-4), but they will certainly do their best to eliminate the English even if they are favorites after the tour. The guests can not count on Mattia De Sciglio’s right-wing defender, right-wing Federico Bernardeschi and the far-right ecuadorian Juan Cuadrado, all being injured. An uncertain situation is also the goalkeeper Carlo Pinsoglio, who is not restored one hundred percent after an injury. The only good news is that Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuaín, who had medical problems, returned to training and will be able to play in the London match.
