Tottenham welcome Juventus to Wembley in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday night, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Spurs came from two goals down to draw 2-2 in the first leg in Turin thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen.

Serge Aurier picked up a booking in the reverse fixture and is suspended for the second leg, while Toby Alderweireld is still struggling with a hamstring problem.

Other than those absentees, Pochettino has a full squad to choose from. Perhaps the biggest decision he will be forced to make concerns the attacking positions.

Erik Lamela started in Turin, and his work-rate was one of the key factors behind Tottenham’s comeback. But many fans would prefer to see Heung-Min Son start on Wednesday.

The South Korean has scored four goals in his last two appearances – albeit against Rochdale and Huddersfield – and is likely to be rewarded with a spot in the starting line-up against the Serie A champions.

Here’s our predicted XI to face Juventus – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments.

Spurs XI v Juventus Home



  1. Lloris
    Dier Sanchez Verts
    Trippier Davies
    Wanyama Dembele

    Eriksen Alli

    Vorm, Foyth, Rose, winks, Lamela, Moura, Llorente

  2. I’d go for that predicted team to, I think wanyama still looks a bit nervous after his lay off.
    Dier is a threat from set pieces and can sometimes pop up with goal, unlike VW I know he got that net buster against Liverpool but I’d still go for Dier.
    Defo Son instead of Lamela he’s to erratic for my liking rather have Moura in there in there than him.
    But Deli has got to step up tonight he really has, and so has Erickson. Gutted I can’t get a ticket for tonight but will be there watching the TV hoping for an early goal.
