Lucas Moura’s Tottenham initiation ceremony

On Monday night in Italy, new Tottenham signing Lucas Moura was forced into his having his initiation ceremony.

Having fallen out of favour in Paris, Spurs spend £25 million to sign the Brazilian midfielder in January.

Interestingly, Lucas Moura is the 22nd signing under Mauricio Pochettino. And 18 of those signings have been foreign players.

Will Lucas be in the Tottenham XI against Juventus on Tuesday night in the Champions League?

That’s unknown, but the South American has bedded himself into his new surrounding by singing for his teammates.

In fact, before he sung, Lucas gave a speech about why he’s joined the club. He said: “I’m here to make history with you, to win trophies.”

Juventus vs Tottenham

For Juve, it has been a spell of utter dominance, winning all 11 of their last fixtures in Serie A, including a 2-0 victory at Fiorentina last time out.

Despite so many impressive displays, the Old Lady still find themselves sat second, behind leaders Napoli, in what has been quite an enthralling race for the title in Italy this season.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side reached this stage of the competition after finishing runners-up to Barcelona in Group D.

For Tottenham Hotspur, this game concludes what has been a tough run of fixtures; but also a period in which they have really flourished.

Taking seven points from their last three league games, coming up against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal, they travel to Italy at just the right moment in time.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side made it to the last-16 of the competition having taken a joint-English record tally of 16 points to top a group containing both Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
