Juventus managed to dig themselves out of trouble last night and comeback from 1-0 down against Spurs, to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Their huge turnaround saw Oddschecker punters believe they are capable of going one step better than last year, as 34% of all Champions League bets placed after the final whistle was blown last night were on Juve prevailing in Kiev. It is Buffon’s last chance of winning the Champions League and he will be desperate to bow out in style.
At half-time when Juve found themselves 1-0 down, you could have picked up massive odds of 40/1 with Betfair. Now you can back them at just the quarter of that price, as SkyBet and Betfair are best-priced at 10/1.
Man City remain firm favourites at 3/1 with Bet365, whilst Spanish duo Real Madrid and Barcelona are both best priced at 9/2 and 5/1 respectively. If you fancy another Barcelona style comeback like we saw last year, you can back Besiktas at 10,000/1, although they do find themselves 5-0 down to Bayern Munich, so maybe this one is fairly unlikely.
Oddschecker spokesman George Elek: "Last year's finalists looked down and out at Wembley, but showed that their is life in the Old Lady, or men as it were last night. Buffon and Chiellini rolled back the years, and it would truly be a fairtytale story if they could carry Allegri's team to victory."
