Tottenham Hotspur host Juventus for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League round-of-16 tie at Wembley Stadium and the lineups for Wednesday’s clash in the English capital have been revealed.

 

Spurs are trotting out in a 4-2-3-1 formation, as expected, with goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris leading the side from the back.

Kieran Tripper, Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen and Ben Davies complete their four-man defence while Eric Dier partners Mousa Dembele in central midfield.

Dele Alli, Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen line up behind star striker Harry Kane.


The visitors are lining up in a 4-3-3, with Gonzalo Higuain starting as the centre-forward, flanked by Douglas Costa and Paulo Dybala.

Sami Khedira, Miralem Pjanic and Blaise Matuidi feature in the middle while Alex Sandro, Chiellini, Benatia and Barzagli appear in a four-man defence ahead of skipper and custodian Gianluigi Buffon.

The tie is evenly poised after the first leg in Turin ended in a 2-2 draw but the fact that Spurs scored two away goals gives them a slight edge over the Bianconeri.

However, they will be wary of complacency as a sluggish start in the first leg, which saw them go 2-0 down with little over 10 minutes played, nearly cost them the tie in Italy and a repeat performance will be disastrous against the in-form Italian outfit.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (c), Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Dele, Son and Kane.

Juventus: Buffon (c), Sandro, Chiellini, Benatia, Barzagli, Pjanic, Khedira, Matuidi, Costa, Higuain and Dybala.

Match kicks-off at 20.45 GMT/01.15 IST.
