The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to the knockout stages of the Champions League. The Lilywhites are on a decent run of form, and whilst Juventus won’t be easy to beat, Mauricio Pochettino’s men will likely be confident heading into the game.
The pressure will certainly be on the Spurs boss to get his preparation for the game correct. Of course, if Juventus are at their best, they’ll be difficult to cope with, but there are a few things that Pochettino can control – notably his tactics and his team selection.
In the case of the latter, the Lilywhites do have a few options in a number of positions. Sure, Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane are likely to start, as they should, but there is a bit of unpredictability available for Pochettino.
They managed to beat Arsenal over the weekend, but a different level of personnel could be needed this time around.
With that said, if Pochettino drops these 2 players, Tottenham will beat Juventus tonight – agreed?
