Despite winning a group that contained Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, Spurs have been handed the unenviable task of taking on last season’s finalists Juventus, whilst Antonio Conte’s Chelsea have been paired with the mighty Barcelona.

Both Tottenham and their London rivals would’ve had aspirations to reach the quarter-finals before today’s plush event in Switzerland but it seems Xabi Alonso’s ball-picking skills have left fans of both sides feeling rather deflated:

Not a fan of taking the piss out of spurs for getting a tough draw after the smashed their group including Madrid/Dortmund. They deserved a favourable one so pretty unlucky there

Of course, Chelsea have knocked out Barca before, most memorably on their way to winning the Champions League back in 2012, and whilst Spurs might not have much experience at the top level of European football, surely Harry Kane and co will give Juve a right good game, no?
What do you think?
