Tottenham Hotspur travel to Turin to take on last year’s finalists Juventus in the Champions League last-16 first-leg on Tuesday, and Mauricio Pochettino must make a massive decision in attack to come away with a result.

Spurs are coming in off a massive Premier League win over rivals Arsenal, coming through 1-0 to take a seven-point advantage over the Gunners in the race for Champions League qualification.

Harry Kane was the match-winner as usual against Arsenal, rising highest to power home a header and give them a narrow win that continues their great run of form recently.

Attention now turns to Italian champions Juventus, who were beaten finalists in last year’s competition, losing 4-1 to Real Madrid in Cardiff in June.

The Bianconeri have been beaten finalists in two of the last three iterations of the Champions League, losing first to Barcelona in 2014/5, before a 4-1 defeat by Madrid last year.

Max Allegri’s charges currently sit in second in Serie A, just one point behind current leaders Napoli as they look to defend their title once again.

Spurs boss Pochettino must be brave and drop one of his key attacking players for the clash, introducing a new face to the Tottenham attack in the process.

This is FutbolĀ have selected the Spurs best XI, including that attacking decision being among just two changes.
