Wednesday 7th March - Tottenham (3) 1-2 (4) Juventus (2nd Leg)

Recommended Posts

Tie of the week. Knocking Juventus out would be a major coup for Spurs.

Is Dybala back for this one?

Edit: nvm yes he is. Going to be the best tie of this week as stated above.

More importantly, Matuidi is back 

To be fair to Juventus they could have won the first leg if Higuain converted some of those chances (and what chances they were too) so I am expecting them to come out with the same kind of gameplan and if they do then Spurs will be out.

Juventus seriously shot themselves in the foot in the first leg after mismanaging their 2 goal lead (which probably should've been more. Juventus need to score and that plays into Tottenham's hands perfectly as they'll have opportunities to punish Juventus on the counter. Positive for Juventus is that Dybala should be back for the game. They should probably also start Szczesny against a past it Buffon but that'll never happen. Can see Tottenham winning this 2-1.

Higuain's chance was no better than the one Kane headed straight at Buffon, the penalty yeah, he fucked up.

The freedom they gave Erikson and Dembele was criminal. 

Will not be the case with Matuidi

Should be another cracking game tonight. As always thoughts are with Davide Astori, his family and his Italian teamates from the Juve team.

Thank you Cicero 🙋‍♀️ I was just thinking when I saw both the line ups how evenly matched these two teams are. Not much to pick between them. How do you see the match going?

Welcome to TF365 :) Good to have you here!

Echo your thoughts too. I just hope that Juve players don't get affected too much by it but that's definitely easier said than done!

Hi thanks for the welcome 😁 I agree. I was reading Gigi's tribute the other day and it was so beautiful but heart breaking too and he is such an emotional guy he will be finding it difficult tonight. I hope they can perform too. I think it is gonna be really close again but unless Dybala really turns up I think Spurs will edge it.

The top pros are usually buoyed by that sort of thing. We already know Higuain's a serial bottler, but you'd have to ask serious questions of the mentality of the rest of them if they let it negatively affect their performance.

I know. But they also wouldn't be human if they didn't feel some sort of pressure to perform for him.

Welcome to the forum mate ^_^

Juventus vs. Spurs is quickly becoming the tie of the round. If you had to stick your neck out, who's winning it?

Hi. Thanks. I'd say Spurs for me. Unless Dybala really turns up I think Son and Kane will be just a bit too much for them

Agreed. Those 2 away goals for Spurs are also massive for them, really gives them control of the fixture. Granted, if we can get a Juve goal soon... then we're likely to have one hell of a game on our hands.

Juve going mental at the non-awarding of that penalty.

Big call from the ref. Looks a penalty to me. Definite contact.

WHAT THE FUCK IS THE EXTRA OFFICIAL DOING THERE?!

That should have been a penalty, in my books at least. They say luck evens out over the course of the season... but it certainly doesn't fucking seem like it sometimes.

Agreed. Those 2 away goals give them a nice cushion. This is so end to end now what an exciting game. I smell a few goals!

Tottenham are definitely in the black this season in terms of bad decisions going their way. Makes you wonder why Pochettino opposes VAR.

The penalty shout aside this looks to be a cracking match... started really well and both sides looking up for this..
