Both managers are likely to make plenty of changes to their teams making it difficult to judge a likely outcome.

With Spurs boasting a superior squad, the temptation should be to back them to be able to get the job done and Conte has a number of international-quality players at his disposal even if he decides to rotate the entire starting eleven.

The side from north London have been in strong scoring form on the road domestically this season, scoring in all but one of their away games and that should continue on Wednesday evening.
