Pochettino: Spurs will learn from Juve game

Tottenham already targeting another Argentine as Mauricio Pochettino's successor

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has rewarded Erik Lamela for his fine form of late with a starting place in the Champions League last-16 tie against Juventus.

Their Champions League last-16 clash will be a fascinating encounter, pitting two of Europe's most in-form teams against one another.

They claimed bragging rights in the north London derby against Arsenal on Saturday to close within a point of the top four and have been quoted by the same betting firm at (3.65) to claim a valuable first leg away win. The 25-year-old crowned a fine display with the free-kick equaliser, a memorable way to mark his first UEFA Champions League knockout appearance.

"It'll be tough tomorrow night then hopefully we can take them to Wembley and get the job done".

"Not many many people believed in us and our ability to get through".

Any result that gives Spurs a good chance of progression into the quarter-finals against a Juventus team, who have won their last 10 games and conceded only one goal in 15, will increase Pochettino's army of admirers. The Bianconeri can still travel to London with confidence considering the chances they created tonight, not to mention the return of some key players from injury.

"For us, we don't have that".

It dived, as 15 investors sold AVHI shares while 22 reduced holdings. 63 funds opened positions while 151 raised stakes. North Star Investment Management Corp. grew its position in shares of NVIDIA by 67.3% in the fourth quarter.

"The team showed great character and the good thing is that this is our fourth season and always we are improving in different aspects".

However, the valiant Londoners would ultimately turn the match around thanks to Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen's crucial away goals, and Pochettino says that after an initial stutter his side were in control of the Serie A giants. "He's rash and lets him team down too often".

One of the key players today is Harry Kane, who scored more goals (56) than Cristiano Ronaldo (53) or Lionel Messi (54) past year.

According to reports, the Italians have their eye on the England frontman "and are willing to pay €250 million".

"My feeling was so bad", he said.

Tottenham had managed to reduce the deficit by then through Harry Kane, who was thwarted on several other occasions by Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, and Christian Eriksen leveled in the 72nd minute. "He is one of those players that is irreplaceable".
