Juventus v Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview: Kane to beat Higuain in battle of number nines

ShareClose Comments
Two of Europe's leading strikers will be on display in Turin and both will want to help their side to a first leg victory in this Champions League tie

Not many sides manage to win at Juventus' Allianz Stadium and Spurs know that scoring an away goal on Tuesday could hold the key to them progressing.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have scored in each of their last 20 matches in all competitions and also netted in each of their Champions League group stage matches.

All eyes on number nines

Both sides boast a classic centre-forward, with Gonzalo Higuain and Harry Kane likely to lead the line in impressive fashion.

Gonzalo Higuain Juventus

Higuain has not been quite as prolific this season as in previous campaigns with the Argentine sharing goalscoring responsibilities with Paulo Dybala, but his countryman will be missing on Tuesday night however.

The former Real Madrid man has been firing in recent weeks and six goals in his last four games show he will certainly be a threat.

Kane, meanwhile, has been in sensational form with eight goals in his last eight matches and six strikes so far in this season's Champions League.

bet365 offer Kane at 7/5 (2.40) to find the back of the net in Turin which is the same price at Higuain. Both players are also offered at 4/1 (5.00) to open the scoring.

Llorente to haunt Juve?

Clearly the two strikers will pose the biggest threat in the final third, but there are plenty of other names to consider in the goalscorers market.

On the return to his former club, Fernando Llorente is offered at 13/5 (3.60)   - or a more tempting 7/1 (8.0) to net last, considering he is unlikely to start.

Juve's Mario Mandzukic, who scored an overhead kick in the 2017 final, is also offered at 13/5 (3.60) to bag anytime.

From midfield, Christian Eriksen can be backed at 11/2 (6.50) to score his second European goal of the season, whilst Mirlaem Pjanic, who is also looking for his second Champions League goal this term, is the same price.

Prices correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
