Tottenham host Juventus in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie this week, and they will really fancy their chances of progressing. When the draw was made back in December, nobody from Spurs will have been happy to see their name paired with Juve’s but, having beaten and drawn with Real Madrid in the group stage and come out on top overall, they will have backed themselves to compete and progress. At half time in Turin, having conceded two early goals, the situation was looking bleak, but fighting back to level terms away from home could give them a real advantage should this game go their way at Wembley.

But the Bianconeri will be a huge threat; they haven’t won six successive Serie A titles and reached two Champions League finals in three years without proving as much. The good thing for Mauricio Pochettino’s side is they will have to score, so they cannot rely on their usually solid defence to squeeze a result from the game. If fit, though, Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala have more than enough quality to hurt the Premier League outfit, and another start like the one made two weeks ago would be a real disaster; one from which it would be tough to recover. If Spurs can score early and get Harry Kane and Dele Alli as involved as they were against Real, they will go through to the quarter finals, but you just cannot Juventus out in any way, shape or form.

Form

Spurs have been scoring goals for fun of late, but they increased their chances of Champions League qualification next year with a thoroughly professional display against Huddersfield on Saturday courtesy of a brace from Son Heung-Min. The North London Derby win over Arsenal is also a huge confidence booster, but Juve will provide a level of test they have not faced too often this season.

Juve, meanwhile, are enduring their toughest challenge in Serie A for a long time, but their win over Lazio, and Napoli’s defeat to Roma, at the weekend may have swung the pendulum back in their favour.

Team News

Toby Alderwiereld will miss out for Spurs, having struggled with injury all season. Paulo Dybala is touch and go as to whether he will be fit, but there are no other concerns for either side.
