Tottenham Hotspur are going to Tuesday night without Toby Alderweireld on a visit to Juventus for the first duel between the two teams in the eighth finals of the Champions League.
Trainer Mauricio Pochettino wants the Belgian defender quietly return in his team. Alderweireld was a while on the side with a hamstring injury, but made last week’s successful comeback during a bekerduel with Newport County. Pochettino left the defender on Saturday outside his selection for the laden spell with Arsenal.
FC Basel – Manchester City
The second match Tuesday night between FC Basel and Manchester City. The Swiss need to transcend themselves at the forefront of the Premier League. “Everything has really come together to stunt,” said Basel coach Raphael Wicky. “We will be very compact to defend and may actually not mistake. City has almost no weak spots.”
Also Wednesday, two matches on the program in the eighth finals of the Champions League. The Liverpool of Georginio Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk comes on a visit to FC Porto, while in Paris the powerhouses Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid meet.
Next week the four other heenwedstrijden in the eighth-finals on the program.
Tuesday 20 February: Chelsea – Barcelona and Bayern Munich – Besiktas
