Tottenham’s away form is concerning and they are about to face a team that has conceded just one goal in 16 matches
Tottenham have emerged from a tricky run of league matches against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal with seven points from nine, but Max Allegri’s Juventus represent an entirely different and more resolute proposition. The Serie A champions may be under pressure from Napoli to retain their crown but they have been looking back to their imperious best of late.
Juventus began their run of six successive titles back in 2011-12 by going unbeaten all season and conceding just 20 goals in 38 games under Antonio Conte. They have not lost that tenacity at the back, boasting by far the best defensive record in each of the last six seasons in Serie A. The 27 goals they conceded in the league last season was the most they had let in since the 2009-10 season, when Inter won the treble.
