Tottenham face another tough Champions League examination as they take on Italian giants Juventus in the last 16 of the competition. Spurs breezed through to the knockout stages by finishing top of a group which included holders Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men taking 16 out of a possible 18 points.
Unfortunately for Spurs fans, their reward for a near-perfect group stage is a draw against Massimiliano Allegri’s Serie A title-winners Juventus, who have reached two of the last three Champions League finals. Spurs come into the game off the back of a dominant win over Arsenal in the north London derby, while the Old Lady are yet to concede a goal across all competitions in 2018.
Tottenham are likely to be without defender Toby Alderweireld, with the Belgian not named in the squad for the trip to Juventus. Juventus meanwhile, will miss the attacking prowess of Paulo Dybala and Juan Cuadrado, with midfielder Blaise Matuidi and defender Benedikt Howedes also on the sidelines and Andrea Barzagli a doubt for Tuesday’s encounter.
Tottenham travel to Italy as winners of the group of death, coming out on top over Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid. Spurs won the north London derby this past weekend with a 1-0 win over Arsenal at Wembley.
It’ll be interesting to see what starting XI head coach Mauricio Pochettino chooses. Much of his first choice XI featured against Arsenal, including Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Delle Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier and Moussa Dembele. The squad only got two days off between Arsenal and Juventus so fitness will most likely be an issue for Spurs.
The game, as a whole, is a huge test for Spurs. Winning the group of death was a great way to establish themselves as a club who can compete with the best in Europe, but winning a Champions League knockout tie against Juventus would let everyone know they believe they can win the competition as well.
