Champions League Last 16, Tottenham vs Juventus & Man City vs Basel, Match Predictions.

Champions League Last 16, Tottenham vs Juventus & Man City vs  Basel, Match Predictions.

It's the second day of the second leg ties in the Champions League knockout phase. Let us take a look at the fixtures at hand and try to predict the outcomes correctly.

Man City vs Basel

Manchester City are probably the frontrunners to win the Champions League this season. Pep Guardiola's team needs to be applauded for the performances they have presented to the footballing world this season.

They are playing flawless attacking football and setting new records along the way, as well as winning the Carabao Cup last week against Arsenal.

Basel, on the other hand, would have minimal chances of progressing further even if they brought positive result from the home game, but with a 4 - 0 loss they are most probably out of the competition already.

What the result of the first leg means is the fact that Pep will probably rotate some of the players to fight fatigue and push harder in the Premier League. City only need 12 points to secure the title mathematically, and I'm sure the Spaniard will try to do that at the first chance he gets.

Even with a rotated first-team, this City side would pair well against some of the elite clubs in Europe, so I'm of the opinion that Basel should prepare for another thrashing.

Tottenham vs Juventus

The most anticipated tie of the Champions League final 16. The first leg finished with a tied score 2 - 2 after Juventus opened up the game with two goals in the first ten minutes of the match.

Gonzalo Higuain missed his opportunities to take the game to bed when he missed a clear-cut chance from the penalty spot in the dying seconds of the first half.

Eventually, Spurs managed to come back from two nil down with goals from Keane and Eriksen. Overall, the London team dominated the game, feet that few teams have managed to do at the Allianz Arena.

However, this is about to be a whole other game. The likes of Dybala and Matuidi are back in the squad, and this will mean a massive plus for the Turin team. Also, Juventus are currently the most in-form team in Europe, conceding only four goals in their last 19 competitive games.

Tottenham, on the other hand, are also in a great form and have yet to suffer a defeat in this year. Last game they lost was 16th December against Man City. Pochetino will have no problems with picking the line-up, only Toby Alderweireld will be out.

What can we expect from this game?

If we get a reply of the first tie, it's going to be great, but this time out I foresee more attack-minded Juventus team. With Dybala and Matuidi back in the lineup, I'm sure Juve will look much better than in the first leg.

Tottenham is looking great this season, and they will probably secure CL next season via the league. They must go into this tie with a bit more caution than it was the case in the first leg, and if they defend well and maybe score a goal, they could easily progress further.

BET: Due to better team quality, Juventus to progress further, odds 2/1 at Unibet
