Hugo Lloris: Tottenham set for big battle with Juventus at Wembley

Following an intriguing clash in Turin, and ahead of what looks set to be an equally absorbing meeting in London, here's four things we think will probably happen when Tottenham host Juventus. Nearly all of their young squad will feel the enormous pressure of the game, where stakes were high compared to the group stage fixtures and every single mistake can get punished. In the first half, Spurs had completed 54 of their 77 attacking-third passes; Juventus had completed just 11 of its 27. Mousa Dembele and Eriksen were excellent in the first leg, controlling possession and distributing the ball in midfield.

Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Jonas Lossl admits the Terriers were hoping Tottenham Hotspur would be distracted by their Champions League tie with Juventus when Town visited Wembley on Saturday. We'll have to be a lot better technically than in the first game, particularly the second half.

"I am very interested to see what Juventus do in this second leg, because Juventus found faith in this 4-3-3 after their last defeat in the league at the end of November".

Alderweirald did feature for the White Hart Lane outfit in the FA Cup against Newport County and Rochdale, however, his manager was not prepared to play him in his more competitive fixtures. They, however, got their due reward in the replay, where they secured a comfortable 6-1 triumph at the national stadium, despite having two of their goals chalked off with the help of the Video Assistant Referee. But then we turned the tide.

Tottenham's talisman has moved into the "world class" bracket in the last couple of years and he has been a star man in the Champions League this season, scoring seven goals. The referee didn't make the call, though, much to the dismay of the visiting side.

In "moving to the next level", as Pochettino described Tottenham's ultimate objective, domestic success was considered paramount to progression. Spurs are confident - they are in a rich vein of form and the visit of Massimo Allegri's side could hardly have come at a better time.

"No lack of experience, no lack of concentration", the Argentine, whose side are fourth in the Premier League after an unbeaten run stretching back to December, said. Two years ago, after their Europa League exit against Dortmund, Pochettino said that his team could not compete with the continent's leading clubs.

That impressive result came after a draw in Madrid and recovering from two goals down to draw 2-2 in the last 16 first leg against Juventus was another step in the right direction.

"Of course, Lamela was fantastic in Turin and is a different type of player".

Tottenham's struggles in away games against their main rivals have been a constant problem throughout Pochettino's reign, dooming them to also-ran status in this season's title chase.
