Juventus confirm star man to miss Tottenham clash as teams confirm squads

Tottenham

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri dismissed criticism of his team after their Champions League draw with Tottenham, saying it was "crazy" their opponents were being underestimated.

Dybala has failed to score in the Champions League this season, despite featuring in all six of Juve's group games.

Pep Guardiola's side took command of the last-16 first-leg tie within half an hour in Switzerland as Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero all scored within a 10-minute period. "I think I was a good judge".

The Tottenham striker is having another excellent season and now leads the Premier League charts with 23 goals in 26 games played.

Alderweireld made his grand return in the 2-0 win over Newport County on Wednesday.

"Christian played an awesome game", he said.

"He is 28 and it was a massive injury that we need to manage and be cautious with because we can not put his career at risk", said Pochettino.

"When I started my career as a manager my goal was to play in the Champions League, to play a team like Juventus here in Turin".

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.

Ultimate victory in Europe's premier club competition has eluded the Turin giants for the past 22 years and they'll hope to take a step towards it this time with a home win at odds of (2.25) with AccessBET. This time it was a foul by Serge Aurier but Higuain smashed it against the bar.

"Then of course we dominate possession, we dominate Juventus - we force them to play deeper and only use the transition and the counterattack [to] try to create chances". 'It shocked us but we showed character to come back and we're not going to lie down against anyone.

But the 30-year-old missed two further chances to hammer home Juventus's advantage in the first half, including striking the crossbar with a second penalty on the stroke of half-time. When you beat teams like Manchester United, then have a good performance against Liverpool away and then beat Arsenal in the way we did - we are just looking forward to the next game and it's probably a good thing that it's coming so quick.
