From what I've seen so far around the internet, Spurs fans have quickly fallen into two groups. Group A people fall squarely in the "I want an easy draw to get as far as we can" camp. That group would argue that United and Liverpool and City got easier competition after winning their group, yet Spurs get stuck with the reigning Italian champions and last year's runner's up. People in Group B subscribe to the the idea that the Champions League is a place to play the very best, so both Spurs and the supporters should be excited to take on Juventus, a top-notch side. I hear you, I hear you, so let's look at it from both sides. The Team from Group A Perspective: Juventus are an excellent side. They have one of the best combinations in the world up top in the fearsome threesome of Gonzalo Higuain, Paulo Dybala, and Marko Mandzukic. Their midfield is equally loaded with Douglas Costa, Miralem Pjanic, Blaise Matuidi, Juan Cuadrado, and Federico Bernadeschi. And you can't talk about the six-time defending Serie A champions without mentioning that menacing back line of Giorgio Chiellini, Alex Sandro, Stephan Lichtsteiner, and Andrea Barzagli. Scared yet? They also have the best goalkeeper of all time in net, and this doesn't even bring up the fact that this could very well be Gianluigi Buffon's last chance at the only major club trophy he doesn't have. This is going to be hard. This is going to be very hard. The Team from Group B Perspective: Juventus are an excellent side, yes, but so are Real Madrid. In fact, player for player, Real are even better, and we drew with them at the Bernabeu and tore them apart at Wembley. If Spurs replicate those two performances (hard to do, but not impossible), then we will be well through. And what about that vaunted Juve defense? They're all aging and we have some of the best young attacking talent in England. Harry, Dele, Son, Erik, and Chris can take these old men to the cleaners. Back to Group A: Take these old men to the cleaners? You're insane. It's called experience, and no team in Europe is as experienced in the back as the Old Lady. If you wanted to take a defensive unit to the cleaners, we should've drawn Porto or Sevilla or Basel or Shahktar. This is a disaster. Group B's rebuttal: You want to be in the Champions League to play Basel? If we want to be considered European elites, we have to beat the other elite teams first. Mission accomplished with Dortmund and Real. Let's add another scalp to the list! We will have the best stadium in the world next season. Why not let our ambition on the pitch match what we have already started doing off the pitch? After all, to dare is to do. A: But wouldn't going as far as possible in the Champions League show that ambition in the best possible way? I'm sorry, but I'd rather go up against Basel any day than face a team that has been to the UCL final two times in the last three years. Plus, we've been struggling in the league against teams that we know we're better than. It's a recipe for real problems against one of the most disciplined teams in Europe. If we can't break down Watford, how in the world will we break down Juve? B: Fair enough, but the game is about glory. And Spurs have stepped up when the light has shined brightest this season. Take the Real results, add in Dortmund and Liverpool. We controlled United and were really unfortunate not to steal a point (or three!) at Old Trafford. Our stars were born for the biggest stage. They'll shine. Now, I'm not going to say that this exact conversation didn't play out in my mind the minute I found out that we had Juve. It pretty much did, but the draw is done and we have an away day in Torino, so I say, let's go out there and make a statement. COYS.
