At the Allianz Stadium in Turin, the final phase of the Champions League will start, where the vice-champions (as well as hosts) of Juventus host a Tottenham victorious in the same group of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
The Juventus of Massimiliano Allegri reaches the second round after coming second in Group D, behind Barcelona. Some shiver ran against the Sporting, but in the end it was what made the passage of the turn, complicated from the beginning with the defeat for 3 to 0 l Camp Nou. Now, after a good moment in the championship with 62 points and a trio fight against Napoli, the challenge comes against one of the surprises of this competition, not to be underestimated and to store the result already here in Turin to go with more certainties to play the return to Wembley. It will still be 4 – 3 – 3 for Allegri, but with some change compared to Florence: on the right defensive side De Sciglio is favored on Lichtsteiner, while in the trident he should find a shirt from the owner Douglas Costa to the detriment of Bernardeschi. In the middle of the field Bentancur and Sturaro play a shirt, the confirmation of Marchisio is difficult. He hopes in a Dybala convocation, while there is resentment in the calf for Barzagli.
The Tottenham of Mauricio Pochettino is, without a doubt, one of the surprises of this Champions League. In one of the rounds of this competition, or group H, in which there were teams of the caliber of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, the English arrived even first with 16 points, surpassing the same Real of the “galacticos”. Now, with a close fight also in Premier to get a place in the Champions League, will serve a test of character without lowering the guard, trying again to do things “incredible” as those seen in the group stage. The Argentine coach should instead deploy the Spurs with the same eleven who defeated Arsenal in the derby. or with 4 – 2 – 3 – 1. Unavailable Alderweireld, not the best Rose: in their place there will still be Sanchez and Davies in defense. Dier and Dembele will be the two medians in front of the defense, in front of the usual four: Son, Eriksen and Alli behind Kane, with Lamela ready to take over.
The scheduled game sees Juve a favorite on Spurs, not just for the home factor. With an impenetrable defense like the bianconeri, and a rediscovered Buffon, it will be hard for Kane and his teammates to find the way to the goal. In our opinion, apart from the fixed 1, we want to opt for an Over2.5, sign of a match from a possible 3 final goals, with a doubt on both 2-1 and 3-0.
