Our Tottenham fans here inside the Transfer Tavern are getting a little excited about tonight’s first leg against Juventus in the Champions League.
Spurs enter the last 16 on a high from finishing top in a group that contained Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. Indeed, as if that wasn’t enough, the fact they’ve recently smashed both Arsenal and Man United have delighted our local Lilywhites.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been playing some of the most attractive football in Europe over the past few seasons, and tonight’s matchup against Italian giants Juventus is sure to be another great game for our regulars to watch. Spurs will be hoping to get something out of the game to take back to Wembley for the return leg and, if that is to happen, some of the squad need to be on top of their game.
A match in Italy against top opposition is always going to be a tough outing but our landlord believes that if these TWO players show up tonight, Juventus will not know what’s hit them…
