18:30: Welcome to our LIVE coverage of Juventus vs Tottenham.

It’s been a while since I screamed the Champions League theme at the top of my lungs.

Highly refreshing, but the guys in the office didn’t appreciate it…

Anyway, we’re here to follow Tottenham’s European adventure which tonight takes them to Turin for the first leg of the Champions League last 16.

Let’s get going!


Tottenham will be without Toby Alderweireld for tonight’s Champions League clash with Juventus.

Alderweireld has not travelled to Turin as he continues to regain fitness following three months out with a hamstring injury.

Otherwise, boss Mauricio Pochettino has a full squad to choose from for the first leg of the last 16. Victor Wanyama could come in to bolster the midfield.


Leroy Sane could make a dramatic return from injury for Manchester City’s Champions League game at Basel.

The German winger has made a rapid recovery from ankle ligament damage that was expected to sideline him for another month and he has travelled with the squad to Switzerland.

Playmaker David Silva and left-back Fabian Delph are also back in contention after respective hip and knee problems but there could be a doubt over defender Aymeric Laporte, who did not take a full part in training yesterday.
