Tottenham Hotspur host Juventus in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 on Wednesday and the match is perfectly balanced thanks to the 2-2 scoreline from the first leg.
Spurs conceded 2 goals within a span of10 minutes in the first leg but courtesy of the goals from Harry Kane and Christensen, Pochettino will feel that they have the slight upper hand coming into the second leg – thanks to the away goals. We take a look at Spurs’ predicted line up vs Juventus.
SPURS’ TEAM NEWS:
Mauricio Pochettino will hopefully field the exact same team against Juventus which took the field during this weekend’s 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town – barring only one change.
Serge Aurier remains suspended meaning that Kieran Trippier will take his place in right-back. Vertonghen and Sanchez started against Huddersfield Town and will be the central defensive partnership of choice for the manager on Wednesday.
Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele will be placed in central midfield while will play further up as the attacking midfielder.
Christain Eriksen and Son will be on either flank while Harry Kane will be playing as the lone striker.
SPURS’ PREDICTED LINE UP VS JUVENTUS:
Defence: Davies, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Trippier.
Midfield: Dier, Dembele, Alli.
Attack: Eriksen, Kane, Son.
