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 is expected to make three changes from the side that beat Arsenal 1-0 on Saturday.

Spurs secured a massive win over their bitter rivals to take a seven-point advantage over the Gunners in the Premier League, and set themselves up nicely for the first-leg against Juventus.

Harry Kane was once again the hero against Arsenal, rising powerfully to head home from a Ben Davies cross and secure the three points for Spurs.

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 made the showpiece in two of the last three tournaments, losing both times to Barcelona and then Madrid in the final.

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 is expected to tweak his squad slightly after playing just three days before the match, but the core of the team is expected to remain in place.

This is FutbolĀ have selected the Spurs expected XI, including a surprising axe for one midfield destroyer who dominated the match against Arsenal.
