It is one of the biggest weeks for Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham Hotspur as they prepare to host Juventus for the second-leg of Champions League round of 16 tie at Wembley.

Spurs posted a couple of pictures of our players as well as Juventus players from their official Twitter handle, with the caption: Next up… #MondayMotivation

Ahead of the second leg at Wembley, the game is finely poised with Spurs clawing back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Juventus last month.

Gonzalo Higuain stunned Spurs when he scored twice inside 10 minutes. But in the first-half itself, Harry Kane halved the deficit and brought the North Londoners back into the game.

But just before half-time, Serge Aurier conceded a penalty after tripping Douglas Costa in the box. Higuain, in a bid to complete his hat-trick, marched ahead to take the penalty but made a mess of it as he rattled the bar before the referee blew the half-time whistle.

After the break, it was all about Spurs as Pochettino’s men looked livelier and sharper. They looked a different beast and the intensity suddenly increased from the visitors which pushed Juventus on the back-foot.

The constant pressure in the second-half finally paid rich dividends as Christian Eriksen scored a clever free-kick past hapless Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

And the game which once looked to end up on a sorry note for Spurs finished all smiles for them as they demonstrated their gritty display to come from 2 goals down to earn a memorable draw ahead of the decisive second-leg at Wembley.

With excitement amongst the Spurs fans sky-high, let us see how they reacted to the club’s post on Twitter.
