Round of 16 action resumes in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday night as Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur lock horns in the first leg at the Allianz Stadium.

The Old Lady could only finish second in Group D, three points behind Barcelona. Juve have also been playing second fiddle to Napoli in the Serie A, sitting one point behind Partenopei.

Ultimate victory in Europe’s premier club competition has eluded the Turin giants for the past 22 years and they’ll hope to take a step towards it this time with a home win at odds of (2.25) with AccessBET.  

The Lilywhites had a fantastic campaign during the group phase, finishing on top ahead of reigning champions Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL.

They claimed bragging rights in the north London derby against Arsenal on Saturday to close within a point of the top four and have been quoted by the same betting firm at (3.65) to claim a valuable first leg away win.

A stalemate in Piedmont is available at (3.15).

Juventus are unbeaten in their last 22 Champions League games, last tasting defeat back in April 2013 against Bayern Munich. Max Allegri’s men are charged with keeping that record intact by avoiding defeat at odds of (1.31).

For Mauricio Pochettino’s side, they are one of four teams beside Barcelona, Besiktas and Liverpool yet to suffer loss in Europe this term and are priced at (1.69) to either win or draw in Turin.

Juve scored just seven goals during the group phase which is the lowest among the last 16 participants.  This could be an indication that not too many goals should be expected at the Allianz Stadium and AccessBET has placed odds of (1.21) for less than three goals.

Despite the lethal firepower that both sides posses, bookies favour ‘NO’ at (1.75) for goal action at both ends of the pitch.
