Plenty of reason for Spurs optimism against Juventus

Spurs can go into tomorrow night’s clash with Juventus with confidence.

Unbeaten so far in 2018, with big wins over Everton, Manchester United and Arsenal, this side are carrying some impressive momentum.

It’s a run that has seen Spurs get right back into the race for a top four place, something which looked in doubt over Christmas.

This run will now culminate in the biggest fixture of their season so far – a second leg tie in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The 2-2 result in Turin was huge. It will have given Spurs a monumental boost heading into this weeks’ second leg, and at an increasingly comfortable Wembley stadium, confidence will be at an all time high.

Rightly so. Spurs remain unbeaten in this years’ Champions League. But they will need to perform, there is no question.

A mouth-watering array of attacking options will certainly help. If Spurs can hold fast defensively, opportunities at the other end are sure to present themselves.

Son simply has to start. He loves it at Wembley, and his performance at the weekend was sublime. But with the likes of Lamela and Lucas Moura ready to back him up, Pochettino has got a decision to make.

Spurs dominated Juventus for the best part of an hour two weeks ago. All the more impressive having handed over a two-goal head-start. There is plenty of reason for optimism heading into this one.
