All eyes will be on Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night.

Tottenham have an amazing opportunity to dump Juventus out of this season’s Champions League.

Spurs picked up an excellent 2-2 draw in Turin in the first leg. But can they finish the job in the English capital?

Mauricio Pochettino’s men should be full of confidence, having beaten Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid in the competition already.

Gonzalo Higuain in, Mario Mandzukic out

On Tuesday afternoon, Juventus confirmed their squad for the Champions League match at Tottenham.

The big news for the Bianconeri is that Argentine international Gonzalo Higuain is back in the squad.

Higuain suffered an ankle injury after the Spurs first leg, and he’s missed the last two matches.

But it’s not all good news for Juve, as Croatian star Mario Mandzukic is out vs Tottenham.

Mandzukic has to miss the trip to London because of a muscle problem.

Federico Bernardeschi and Juan Cuadrado are also out of contention with ongoing injury problems.
