Toby Alderweireld has been left out of Tottenham's squad for their Champions League match against Juventus.

When Argentina striker Higuain volleyed Juve in front after two minutes and fired home a penalty seven minutes later the hosts, runners-up in two of the last three season, appeared to have one foot already in the quarter-finals.

Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero scored within nine minutes of each other in the last 16 first-leg tie to nearly certainly extend Basel's wait for a first quarterfinal appearance in the competition.

"It's something that makes me insane because you aren't able to analyse how good teams are in the Champions League". Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to capitalize on Harry Kane's subliminal run in front of goals when they take on Serie A giants in their playground.

Kane made his full England debut under then-manager Roy Hodgson in a 1-1 draw away to Italy in 2015.

Kane, who has scored six goals in six Champions League games this season, will be backed up by fellow England worldwide Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Lamela.




Pochettino praised his team for their response to falling 2-0 behind inside 10 minutes away from home. "He was outstanding. He was fantastic", he said.

'The thought in everybody's head was we have to turn it around, there's no other option now, we're 2-0 down and there's only one way and that's to create something, try to come back.

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".

"The team showed great character and the good thing is that this is our fourth season and always we are improving in different aspects". "Two down against a side who are so hard to break down and in the end we deserved to win more than to draw". Higuain would then miss 2 gilt-edged chances, one of them a penalty, as he royally messed up two chances to put the game to bed.

A road goal and/or a clean sheet would go a long way in setting up Spurs to advance with the second leg coming at Wembley. 'Most clubs are just used to it. Tottenham are not used to it but of course Tottenham are going to give everything we can to get as close as possible to get our hands on a trophy.
