The Argentine marksman remains lethal in front of goal and just recently scored his first Juve hat-trick in a 7-0 thrashing over Sassuolo.
Gonzalo Higuain also has history scoring against British opposition in European competition. The last time he faced a Premier League side, he beat Swansea in the Europa League for Napoli, netting and assisting that night. Looking forward to Tuesday’s clash, he is 16/5 with 888sport to open the scoring.
However, it’s not just going forward Juve shine, they also boast Serie A’s second tightest defence, surely limiting Harry Kane’s chances of finding the net.
