Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham will on Wednesday night go into the second leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash against Juventus with 2-2 advantage, having drawn the first leg at Turin.

Pochettino’s men will hope to get a win against Juve at Wembley stadium in England, so as to qualify for the quarter’s final of the competition.

Pochettino will be without full-back Toby Alderweireld, who is out with a hamstring injury.

Jan Vertonghen returned from injury and played the full 90 minutes during the 2-0 win over Huddersfield last Saturday and is set to start at the back against Juventus.

The Spurs coach has a tough decision to make on whether to start Lamela or Son on the left, but considering their recent form, the 46-year-old will most likely go with the latter.

However, Massimiliano Allegri Juventus will have to defend well or go full-attack and put on more than two away goals, if they are to hope of advancing to the quarter-finals.

The Old Lady have few injury concerns ahead of the Wednesday clash.

Higuain didn’t feature in the 1-0 win over Lazio with an ankle injury but is set to make a return in this crucial clash.

Bernadeschi, Cuadrado and De Sciglio are still unavailable for the Bianconeri.
