Juventus Ajax: champions League prediction, pick, live stream
Juventus are slight favorites on the road against Juventus in their champions League match.
Will Pep Guardiola overthink this matchup and open the door for Spurs to pull off the upset?
Having already lifted the Carabao Cup, city are attempting to win an unprecedented quadruple. On Tuesday, the Blues turn their attention to the champions League Quarterfinal, where theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll face Juventus in what is the first of three meetings over the course of 11 days.
If thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s any manager in the country who should relish a chance to stand toe-to-toe with the mighty Pep Guardiola, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Juventus manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The argentine famously beat GuardiolaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Juventus in 2009 when the former was saving espanyol from relegation, and his Spurs were the first team to beat city under Pep in the Premier League.
PochettinoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s strengths lie in the way heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s drilled his team to be so tactically flexible. Spurs boast defenders equally comfortable playing as center-backs or wing-backs, and forwards who can play wide, centrally or by themselves up top.
The champions League quarterfinals begin Tuesday with an all-england clash as Juventus plays its first European game inside its new stadium against mighty Juventus in the first leg. Spurs beat Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate in the round of 16 to move on, while Juventus dominated Schalke to easily move on to this stage.
Juventus: From Feb. 22 to April 2, Juventus won just one game in all competitions. But the team did get a 2-0 win over crystal Palace on Wednesday to build a little bit of momentum. Spurs enter this one as a heavy underdog though, having lost 1-0 to city in their first Premier League meeting of the season. This is a match at home where Spurs will obviously want to win, but the priority has to be to not concede. Just two goals from city would put them in a rough spot.
Man United: This may be the year city gets over the hump in Europe, but first the team will have to see off a talented Spurs side. Going on the road, obviously a victory would be ideal, but they'll also be thrilled with a draw with goals to give them an advantage ahead of the second leg. city is also expected to get Sergio Aguero back for this one after the argentine trained on Monday.
