One of these two Premier League heavyweights will be closing in on silverware this season with a success in this FA Cup duel. Manchester United have taken a lot of heavy criticism for their lack of performances this season but will still be a hard side to beat. Will the positive attacking momentum of Spurs be able to take down the Red Devils? The winner of the tie will face either Chelsea or Southampton in the FA Cup Final.
Tottenham 6/5, Man Utd 23/10, Draw 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 6:50 p.m. on April 16th, 2018)
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho could then be dropping players who didn’t perform in that shock 1-0 home loss against West Brom in the Premier League weekend. This is Jose Mourinho though and it could all be mind games. The Red Devils are yet to concede a goal in this season’s FA Cup. They opened with a home win over Championship side Derby before easing past League Two side Yeovil. Then it was back to back 2-0 successes over fellow Premier League sides Huddersfield and then Brighton. So three of their four FA Cup games have ended in a 2-0 scoreline in their favour. The shortest-priced correct score option at bet365 for the game is a 1-1 at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:36 p.m. on April 18th, 2018). The Red Devils last got their hands on the FA Cup just back in 2016 with a 2-1 success after extra time against Crystal Palace. That leaves them just one behind Arsenal now on the all-time list of FA Cup wins with twelve.
The last time that Man Utd and Spurs were together in the FA Cup was in 2009 with manchester United taking a fourth-round home win 2-1 over the Lilywhites. There have been fifteen previous FA Cup matches between Manchester United and Spurs and things are dead even with five wins each and five draws. Both teams not to score at Bet365 for 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6:50 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) has to offer some value as both teams have scored in just one of the last eight meetings. Of those, Spurs have won two of the last three meetings but the two of them traded home wins in this season’s Premier League. Three of United’s FA Cup games this season have gone under the 2.5 goal line and four of the last six meetings between Tottenham and Manchester United have produced fewer than three goals.
Tottenham have gone through two replays to get to to the semi-final. They opened comfortably enough at home with a win over AFC Wimbledon but then put in a poor display to draw 1-1 at League Two side Newport before winning the replay at Wembley. It was the same story in the next round as they draw at Rochdale before winning the reply at Wembley. They took a direct route of a 3-0 away win over Swansea in the quarter finals. So that’s at least two goals that Tottenham have scored in five of their six FA Cup ties this season. Harry Kane is 3/1 bet365 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds taken at 6:50 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) for the match up. Spurs are eight-time FA Cup winners, their most recent success though was back in 1991 and haven’t been back to the final since then. They will kick off as favourites to make it through this time.
Tottenham are the better of the two sides and with the familiarity that they have of playing on the Wembley turf this season that has to be something of an extra advantage for them. Manchester United aren’t likely to produce over the 90 minutes so look for the Lilywhites to win but for both teams to score.

The Seagulls failed to win for the fourth game in a row as they lost out at Crystal Palace on the weekend. They have a comfortable buffer between themselves and the drop zone though so are going to be safe. This is another game though which may not offer up much for them. Spurs had their long unbeaten stretch snapped as they found Manchester City too hot to handle at Wembley on the weekend.
Tottenham 4/9, Draw 15/4, Brighton 7/1* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018)
The Seagulls have taken just the one point in their last four league games. They had a right old ding-dong battle with Crystal Palace on the weekend at Selhurst Park, losing 3-2 but showing plenty of fight. The Seagulls have been alright at home recently with a W3 D1 L1 record at the Amex going, but they are winless in two there. Overall this season they have picked up a W6 D7 L4 record for the season at home. The half time draw at bet365 for 7/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) is worth considering as Brighton have been level at the break in ten of their home fixtures this season. The Seagulls haven’t actually kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven league home games though and on average have conceded 1.4 goals per home game. They have taken a clean sheet in only 24% of their entire home games. But still with all that added up, less than half of their home games have gone above 2.5 goals so it’s worth looking under the goal line. Two-thirds of their entire matches this season have ended under 2.5 goals. Brighton have scored 64% of their home goals this season in the second half of matches.
Tottenham just didn’t get a look in at home against Manchester City on the weekend at Wembley, losing 3-1. They were a distant second best to the newly crowned Premier League champions. It snapped a fourteen match undefeated streak of form that they were on too. Their away form is still good though having put together a four-match winning streak away from Wembley, scoring at least two goals in each of their last three. Spurs are undefeated in their last eight road games in the top flight and overall this season on their travels they have produced a W10 D3 L4 record. The LIlywhites are on an eleven match scoring streak away from home and they have scored in each of their last 21 league games home and away combined. They will likely get a battle from the Seagulls and Spurs to win by a one-goal margin is at 11/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). Naturally, Harry Kane heads up the anytime goalscorer market but Christian Eriksen continues to perform so well for them at longer value. They start midweek only four points out of second place so need to keep competing.
Tottenham were 2-0 home winners over Brighton earlier this season and that is back to back wins over the Seagulls by that scoreline for them in all competitions now. That was the first Premier League meeting between the two sides and only the fifteenth meeting overall. From those previous clashes, it is Spurs who are 9-3 ahead with three drawn matches. Spurs did lose their last visit to Brighton which was back in the old Division One in 1983.
Tottenham may not have been good enough to match Man City, but they are good enough to beat most sides in the league. Look for some kind of response to come from the Lilywhites, but maybe a win by only the one-goal margin.

Man City are going to have to wait just a little bit longer now to get the league title in their hands. They blew their lines at home against rivals Manchester United last weekend. This is no easy game for them either so can they avoid losing back to back league fixtures? Spurs are still buzzing along on a fantastic winning streak and won’t be fearing the Citizens at the moment.
Tottenham 6/4, Man City 13/8, Draw 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 11:22 p.m. on April 9th, 2018)
It has been imperious form from Tottenham lately who are on a six-match winning streak of league form. The goals are flowing well for them as well having netted at least two in each of their last four games. They haven’t picked up a clean sheet in any of their last three and keeper Hugo Lloris has been guilty of a few mistakes. Both teams to score at 8/15 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 3:50 p.m. on April 10th, 2018) looks like a viable option for this high profile fixture. The Lilywhites have superb home form, unbeaten in fourteen at Wembley and currently riding a four-match winning streak there with each of those four wins coming with a clean sheet. But this is Man City visiting so in the bet365 correct score market a Tottenham 2-1 option is a good solid 10/1 poke* (Betting Odds taken at 3:50 p.m. on April 10th, 2018). Spurs really need the points to keep their top two finish dreams alive and it would heap more frustration on City.
The Citizens suffered that crazy 2-3 home loss against Man Utd last weekend. After sitting 2-0 up at half time, no-one saw that second half collapse coming. They were just 45 minutes away from the title and now they have to wait. Man City’s away form still makes for some good reading though as they are W13 D2 L1 for the season. The Citizens are on a three-match winning streak on the road, having scored at least two goals in each of those wins and conceding just the one goal in total. Manchester City have produced 37 in their 16 away games this season and have conceded just the eleven. They have scored in each of their last five away games. The two losses that they suffered in the top flight this season, their victors needed at least three goals to topple them. That says a lot about City. Over 3.5 goals at bet365 is at 6/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:50 p.m. on April 10th, 2018) and worth a look. More than half of City’s away victories in the Premier League this season have been by a margin of at least two goals.
Man City romped to a 4-1 home success over Spurs earlier in the season. That snapped a four-match winless streak of form that they were on against Spurs though (D1 L3). So Spurs are ahead in the recent head to head meetings and the Lilywhites, albeit at White Hart Lane, have won their last two home league fixtures against the Citizens. Six of the last nine have produced at least four goals.
Tottenham to win: A win for Spurs could a least prolong City’s inevitable title just a little bit longer. City have been exposed recently by Liverpool and Man Utd and Spurs will know how to get the visitors rattled. Home win.
12th April 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Stoke’s season is in big danger of ending on a real sour note now. Three defeats on the bounce has left them three points clear of safety (four realistically with goal difference) and they get another tough game here. Spurs produced some fine form to snap their long winless streak at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea last weekend to pretty much lock down a top-four finish and to carry on in fantastic form.
Tottenham 3/10, Draw 4/1, Stoke 17/2* (Betting Odds taken at 7:32 p.m. on April 2nd, 2018)
The Potters start the weekend second from bottom and badly needing a change of fortunes. They are winless in each now (D4 L4) and are running on a three match losing streak heading into this one with Spurs. They have taken to back to back home defeats (against Everton and Man City ) and they have failed to win any of their last four on home soil, collecting only the two points in that sequence. It’s hard to see them defying the big odds on them in this one too and producing a win. Stoke have only come up with the two goals in their last four home fixtures and have failed to score in half of their last six at home. Tottenham to win to nil at Paddy Power does appear to be a good option out of the gate for 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:51 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). Stoke have netted 17 goals in 16 home games so shouldn’t be a huge threat and they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last two home games. Clean sheets have been few and far between for them this season with one earned in just 19% of home fixtures.
Spurs took a win over London rivals Chelsea last weekend to move on to a five-match winning streak. They haven’t lost since a 4-1 defeat against Man City last December. Away from home, they are on a three-match winning streak, scoring eight goals in that sequence as well. Overall this season the Lilywhites are W9 D3 L4 on the road and they are cruising along at the moment. They even got the boost of having Harry Kane return from injury far sooner than expected as he put in a subs appearance against Chelsea. Hard to know how much he is going to be risked, by Son Heung-Min has been in pretty good scoring form lately and is a good proportion at even money* (Betting Odds taken at 4:51 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018) in the Paddy Power anytime scorer market. Spurs average just about two goals per game away from home this season and have scored in each of their last ten away from Wembley and in 88% of their away games in total this season. Only Manchester City are currently carrying better form than Spurs are in the top flight and only the Citizens have a better away record this term than the Lilywhites do.
Spurs eased their way to a 5-1 home success over Stoke earlier in the season and that was the fourth Premier League game in a row in which they have scored at least four goals against the Potters. Tottenham are on a four-match winning streak and are unbeaten in five against the Potters now. They have won their last two trips to the Bet365 Stadium 4-0.
Tottenham showed a lot of character and class last weekend to beat Chelsea, even if they rode their luck a bit at the back in the first half. Stoke won’t trouble them too much at all and this should be relatively easy pickings for them.

Chelsea v Tottenham Premier League Preview, 1st April 4.00pm
A new month brings a heavyweight duel at Stamford bridge between London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham. This could have big implications in the race for a top-four finish. Spurs are holding down fourth heading into the weekend, five points clear of their rivals, so a win for the Lilywhites in this one would pretty much close the door on the Blues. Can Chelsea lift themselves for a big home performance? They need to.
Chelsea 5/4, Tottenham 11/5, Draw 23/10* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018)
Big pressure game for Chelsea now which is a huge opportunity to try and edge their way back to the Champions League qualification places. They have a five-point gap to make up to Spurs in order to achieve that, but a win here would put good wind in their sails. Chelsea have won their last two league outings at Stamford Bridge, beating West Brom and Crystal Palace. Overall the Blues are W10 D2 L3 for the season and they have averaged 1.7 goals per game on home soil. So while their overall form recently hasn’t been great, they do look a solid home side. Each of their last three home games have made it over 2.5 goals and that is 21/20 at bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) to happen in this one as well. If the Blues don’t make the most of this one then their chances of making it to the Champions League next season through the league route are going to be severely hampered. Olivier Giroud is the 13/8 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for the game, but Willian out at 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) is always a tempting proposition and has been in great form. The Blues are currently sixteen points worse off than they were at this stage last season. The pressure is on, especially with only two wins in eight previous games this season against top-six opponents.
The Blues have shown some vulnerabilities at the back and with Spurs (even without Kane) a threat, then the both teams to score option at bet365 for 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) is still looking viable. Spurs can take a lot of pressure off of themselves with a win in this one which would pretty much lock down a top-four finish. The Lilywhites are in great form at the moment with a four-match winning streak going and no defeat since a loss to Man City back on December 16th. Away from home this season in the top flight the Lilywhites are W8 D3 L4 and they have won four of their last six on their travels (D2). Spurs have averaged 1.9 goals per game away from home this season and have been their usual solid selves at the back, taking a clean sheet in 40% of their road games. Spurs have scored in each of their last eighteen league games now and are unbeaten in twelve in total home and away. They are missing Kane, but are still such a tight, well-knitted group of players.
The Blues did take a win at Wembley earlier this season against the Lilywhites and have won three of the last four meetings against their rivals in all competitions. They collected a 2-1 success in his corresponding fixture last season and are defending a proud unbeaten home record against Spurs in the Premier League. Chelsea have won three of their last four (D1) league home games against Spurs and overall home and away in all competitions are W4 D2 L1 in their last seven against them.
Chelsea do have a bit of home form going against the Lilywhites and they can take advantage of the visitors being without Kane. The Blues have to raise their game, leave everything out there in this one to get some pressure back on the Lilywhites for a top-four finish.
28th March 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
It is that time of the season once again, where you can start looking ahead to what may be to come next season. This year’s Premier League title has looked like a foregone conclusion for most of the way, with Manchester City running rampant. While we still have the rest of the domestic action, the Champions League and of course the World Cup in the summer to think about betting on, City have been priced up as favourites for next season’s Premier League title.
Bet365 have installed Pep Guardiola’s men as the 4/6 outright favourites* (betting odds taken at 11:14 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) to successfully defend their title next season. They have made it look so easy in this season’s Premier League, no-one even getting close to matching their power and consistency in what could be a record-breaking season for them that is it hard to see them having it all fall down anytime soon.
At those 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken at 11:14 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) offered by Bet365, it implies that Man City have a staggering 60% chance of winning the Premier League title next season as well. If they were to successfully deliver a title defence, then they would be the first team to do so since rivals Manchester United pulled it off in the 2007/08 season.
Manchester United have been priced up at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken at 11:14 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) making them third-favourites in the title race for next season, which is only a 14% chance that they will top the pile at the end of the season. Things have turned a little bit sour under Jose Mourinho this season and could need a shakeup in the summer. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are sandwiched between the two Manchester clubs at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken at 11:14 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) which means that are expected to be City’s closest challenge.
But Liverpool could find themselves with a big problem on their hands in the summer and that is holding on to the free-scoring Mo Salah as clubs like PSG and Real Madrid are bound to come knocking on the door for him. It is hard to know what situation Chelsea are going to be in next season with rumours that Antonio Conte could be parting ways with the club after some setbacks this season. The Blues are priced up as 10/1 shots* (betting odds taken at 11:14 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) to get the Premier League title next season and with Willian and Eden Hazard likely to be in hot demand, it could be a long way back to the top for Chelsea.
Once again under Mauricio Pochettino Spurs have been the epitome of style, but on top of their missed chances in recent seasons of winning the league and more failure this season in that regard, they have been priced out at 14/1 odds* (betting odds taken at 11:14 p.m. on March 27th, 2018). But it is a lot shorter than the 25/1 odds* (betting odds taken at 11:14 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) that bet365 have priced up Arsenal at. to win the league next season.
Outside of the traditional big six, the ones deemed most likely to do a “Leicester” and pull out a surprise title are Sam Allardyce’s’ Everton at 200/1 odds* (betting odds taken at 11:14 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) and yes, Leicester themselves at 300/1* (betting odds taken at 11:14 p.m. on March 27th, 2018).

Three-quarters of the FA Cup quarter-final match ups turned out to be pretty routine affairs this weekend. Everything is done and dusted with no replays now being played at this stage of the competition and it is four Premier League clubs in the semi finals, Chelsea, Spurs, Southampton and Manchester United being the last four teams left standing.
Of the two semi finals, the big one is Man Utd v Tottenham. The Lilywhites looked as if they could have a tricky tie on their hands at Swansea on the weekend. The Swans had been in great form on home soil, but Spurs, without the injured Harry Kane cruised through to a 3-0 win. They will face Manchester United who laboured to a 2-0 win at Old Trafford over Brighton.
Mark Hughes won his first game in charge of Southampton as the Saints avoided the big banana skin that they faced at League One side Wigan. The Latics had knocked out Man City in the last round but Southampton safely made it through with a 2-0 win. The tightest tie was at the King Power as Leicester and Chelsea went to extra time, where the Blues won it thanks to a header from Pedro.
Tottenahm2/1, Man Utd 9/4, Chelsea 13/8, Southampton 14/1* (betting odds taken at 11:17 p.m. on March 18th, 2018)
Chelsea 3/9, Draw 7/2, Southampton 11/2
Tottenham 6/4, Man Utd 9/4, Draw 9/4* (betting odds taken at 11:17 p.m. on March 18th, 2018)
It should be full advantage to Tottenham now. The semi-finals and the final, of course, are played at Wembley where Spurs are playing their home games this season, so they know the ground and the conditions well. They should be able to get the better of a stuttering Manchester United on the day.
Chelsea should equally be able to enjoy their day out at Wembley in the semi-finals, they will create plenty of space on the Wembley pitch and probably have too much in the bag for Southampton, setting up a nice London derby for the final between Spurs and Chelsea.
19th March 2018 / lee - Category: FA Cup & League Cup Betting
With Spurs having to cope without Harry Kane now, this FA Cup tie gets a little bit more interesting. The Swans have produced some fine home form recently and will be up for this challenge at the Liberty Stadium. After losing out in the Champions League round of sixteen, this is the last shot at silverware for the Lilywhites this term.
Tottenham 9/20, Draw 16/5, Swansea 13/2* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:32 p.m.)
Swansea will look to make the most of home advantage as they face up to Spurs in the quarter finals. They are certainly carrying the home form to do just that. Remarkably the Welsh club are on a seven-match winning streak at home which includes wins over Liverpool and Arsenal in that sequence. In the FA Cup they have taken out Championship high-fliers Wolves, put eight goals past Notts County and saw off current boss Carlos Carvalhal’s former club Sheffield Wednesday. So they have certainly taken their chances at home and should be really competitive in this one and it’s worth backing both teams to score at even money odds at bet365* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:32 p.m.). That has happened in three of the last four between these two at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea’s last home win over Spurs was back in the 1991 League Cup and are D2 L5 since then against the Lilywhites in South Wales. This season they did pick up a creditable draw at Wembley in the league before falling 2-0 at home against Spurs in early January. This will be the first ever FA Cup game between Swansea and Tottenham.
Spurs have scored at least two goals in seven of their last eight games against Swansea but they are missing Harry Kane now for a lengthy time through injury. How will they cope? In the bet365 First Goalscorer market is Fernando Llorente who is now the 3/1 outright favourite* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:32 p.m.). Can he step up to the plate as he goes against his former club? Spurs are not actually in that great of winning form away from home. They are W2 D5 in their last seven on the road and they have just the one clean sheet in that sequence but have scored in each of their last thirteen away games in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a decent option to consider for this one. Tottenham have made hard work of things in the FA Cup itself having needed replays against Rochdale and Newport at home to get through earlier rounds.
The Swans are in home form at the moment and they may be strong enough and positive enough to get a draw out of this one at 90 minutes. There will be no replay, just extra time and penalties if needed. Tottenham’s loss of Harry Kane could well galvanise the home side even more. So back the draw at the end of regulation.

Tottenham get all of their focus back on a top-four finish in the league now after crashing out of the Champions League in midweek. They will get a good test out on the road against a Bournemouth side who have improved considerably in the new year. The Cherries go into the weekend six points clear of safety after a good revival.
Tottenham 1/2, Draw 13/4, Bournemouth 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 04:45 a.m. on March 8th, 2018)
Bournemouth have shaped up well since Christmas really having lost just once since Boxing Day in the league. So they are ticking over nicely and look pretty solid to survive against relegation. They are without a win in three though, drawing their last two against Newcastle and Leicester. They have great form at the Vitality going on at the moment though with an unbeaten W3 D2 record going and they have scored at least two goals in each of those home fixtures as well. Over 3.5 goals at Ladbrokes for 29/20 odds* (betting odds taken on March 8th, 2018 at 5:35 p.m.) may well be worth a little flutter in this one because while the Cherries are scoring well, they haven’t taken a clean sheet in their last eight home fixtures. Plus their last six games at home have gone above the 2.5 goal line and both teams to score looks a really viable option to roll with in the game. The Cherries have upped their average to 1.4 goals per game at home this season and 70% of those have come after the halftime break. So this should be a really good contest and with Bournemouth having scored in each of eir last ten games home and away in the top flight, they could put up quite a good challenge to the Lilywhites in this one.
Tottenham saw their Champions League dreams ruined in midweek by Juventus so now it is back to the business to try to lock down a top-four finish in the Premier League. They haven’t lost since a defeat against Man City back in mid-December and they are on a three-match winning streak at the moment in the league, each with a clean sheet. Away from home, they are unbeaten in their last five (D3 D2) part of an overall W7 D3 L4 away record that they have posted this term. Spurs are up at an average of 1.7 goals per game away from Wembley and they have scored in each of their last eight on the road and in each of their last seventeen Premier League games home and away combined. Harry Kane is naturally the Ladbrokes first goalscorer favourite at 5/2* (betting odds taken on March 8th, 2018 at 5:35 p.m.) and the Lilywhites have scored in 86% of their away matches. They start the weekend in fourth place, five points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea so have a nice cushion. They just have to make sure that there is no Champions League hangover.
Spurs edged their way to a 1-0 home victory over the Cherries earlier in the season and that is a big five-match unbeaten streak of form that they are on against Bournemouth. The Cherries have failed to score in any of their last four against Spurs now (W3 D1). The Cherries did hold out for a 0-0 draw in this corresponding fixture last season. This is just the seventh game between them with Spurs 4-1 ahead with one drawn game.
This has the makings of being an entertaining clash down on the south coast. Tottenham’s European dreams were left in tatters in the week and may struggle to lift themselves in this one. This is a good chance for Bournemouth to sneak a point.
9th March 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
After fighting back to earn a 2-2 draw in Turin, Tottenham suddenly look the favourites for this tie now. Will the Lilywhites be able to deliver back on home soil? There is a huge opportunity in front of their faces here to progress past one of the stronger sides in the tournament. Juventus, who were missing some key players for the first leg will be rueing blowing such a positive position on home soil as they had to Wembley.
Tottenham 11/10, Draw 12/5, Juventus 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 00:41 p.m. on March 5th, 2018)
Tottenham did a marvellous job of pulling themselves back into this tie. They were quickly behind 2-0 out in Turin but managed to turn things around, given a real lifeline too with Juve missing the chance at a third from the penalty spot with the Premier League side down 2-1 at the time. This is just the second time that Spurs have been at this stage of the competition and they have a slight advantage through away goals. They have been in form as well at home in Europe this season, winning all three of their group stage home games, scoring three goals in each of them too. In the William Hill correct score market for this second leg, the 1-1 draw is the shortest-priced option at 6/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:41 p.m. on March 5th, 2018). Spurs hold an unbeaten record of seven home games against Italian sides (W4 D3) and they have won four of their five previous two-legged UEFA contests against Italian opposition as well. Spurs have also won all six of their ties in Europe after having drawn the first leg away from home. With the home successes they have had already this season, there is every reason for Spurs to be confident and Harry Kane is running as the 3/1 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds taken at 00:41 p.m. on March 5th, 2018) for the match.
Juve holds a W5 L3 record from round of sixteen ties in the UEFA Champions League. They are unbeaten in their last six games played in Europe (W3 D3) and away from home, they took four points from their three road games in the group stage, the loss coming at Barcelona. Juventus though won five of their six away matches in last season’s UEFA Champions League, drawing the other one so are still going to put up a tough fight. They are undefeated in their last seven games giant English opposition too (W3 D4) and were on a three-match winning streak before the 2-2 draw in the first leg of this tie. Overall though, the Bianconeri’s record away to English clubs is W3 D6 L12, which is very poor. The last time that they went to England was to face Man City in the 2015/16 group stage and they won that 2-1. In two-legged knockout ties against English clubs, Juventus are W5 L8 but have lost each to their last five ties. Both teams to score at William Hill is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:41 p.m. on March 5th, 2018). Juventus are unbeaten in 19 games in all competitions, winning seventeen of those and are on a ten match winning streak away from home, with just one goal conceded in that epic sequence. Aside from that draw with Spurs, Juve have conceded one goal in their last 19 in all competitions.
The 2-2 draw in Turin was the first ever match between the two sides clubs.
This isn’t done yet. Juventus are a quality side who can make a nuisance of themselves. They have what it takes to get the home side under pressure again but Spurs have already shown their class this season at home in Europe and will be value to get the win.
