The strange thing about following this case is that to some extent it's already likely to be a win, even if the Court did find against Unilateral Revocation (UniRev) of A50).

The Commission and Council have all formally said A50 can be revoked by agreement. 1/
The UK Government has not disputed that, and has accepted that Parliament can instruct it to attempt to revoke A50. 2/
Unless the Court finds that no revocation is possible ever, and none of the participants has claimed that, we will know one simple fact:

Article 50 can be revoked. 3/
Knowing that, the question is then how, i.e. only by unanimous agreement of Council, only by QMV, or unilaterally. 4/
Knowing for sure that Article 50 can be revoked, and how it can be, even if it is not the preferred method, would be a hugely significant and positive outcome. 5/
I'd imagine that's why UKGov has been so focussed on getting it ruled inadmissible (which is still possible, though seems unlikely). The knowledge it can be revoked, and how, undermines their this deal or no deal rhetoric even if UniRev is not possible.. 6/
I'll just add that @StevePeers and @davidallengreen would probably rightly point out that we can never predict a court's rulings, so consider these musings rather than predictions. 7/7
