Tottenham projected XI at Juventus: Pochettino goes conservative

Real Madrid conquerors in the group stage Tottenham Hotspur starring inspirational striker Harry Kane will take on last year's UEFA Champions League finalist Juventus in the first leg of their round of 16 clash on Tuesday at the Allianz Stadium in Turin.

Mauricio Pochettino's men levelled proceedings after a spell of possession in the 72nd minute when Christian Eriksen's low free-kick evaded Buffon to give Spurs the edge going into the second leg at Wembley on 7 March.

The team was awesome in how they reacted.

"Then of course we dominate possession, we dominate Juventus - we force them to play deeper and only use the transition and the counterattack [to] try to create chances".

WIth their run - one could confidently say, they are the team to beat after dropping no points and beating the team who holds the cup. We are facing Tottenham in the Champions League, a really physical and technical team.

Fellow analyst Neil Lennon hailed Kane as one of the best strikers in Europe, with both pundits claiming that they can't see the England striker wanting to leave the club despite interest from some of Europe's richest clubs.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino made two changes to his side that started the Premier League win over Arsenal on Saturday.

Juventus are on an 11-match winning streak and crucially their latest victory, a 2-0 win away to Fiorentina, was on Friday, allowing them 24 hours more rest than tonight's opponents.

It was the first time that Juventus had conceded in 2018 and the first time an away side had scored in Turin since November. He always steps up and I think he's this type of player who represents our philosophy.

Juventus's regrets centred upon a Gonzalo Higuaín's penalty miss in first-half stoppage-time but, make no mistake, this was a richly deserved result for Tottenham.

Asked what had happened to his players following Higuain's second goal - a spot kick after Ben Davies had fouled Federico Bernardeschi - Allegri said: "Tottenham reacted".

"I feel so proud. We go into that game full of confidence and we're looking forward to it".

"We shouldn't just think of Tottenham as Kane, but as a whole team".

"It will be an fantastic game for us but it's now the knockouts and it's open, 50-50".
