The UEFA Champions League match - Juventus vs. Tottenham - Odds to win - UCL trophy illustration. On 2018.02.13, the much anticipated Round of 16 action in Champions League will get under way with two games, including Juventus squaring off against Tottenham.

Juventus will be playing host to Tottenham in the first game on February 13th. Juventus is favoured to move on to the quarter-finals, which is why it should be no surprise that they are favoured to win the home opener of the two game series.

Juventus is having a strong year overall, as they have progressed to the Round of 16 in Champions League, while they are currently 1 point behind Napoli for first place in Italian Serie A.

Tottenham, on the other hand, is slipping a bit this year, as they are currently sitting in 5th place in the English Premier League table, three points behind both Liverpool and Chelsea. This is obviously important, as Tottenham runs the risk of missing out on Champions League next season if these results remain the same.
