The TOT vs BAR match preview –
Spanish league leaders Barcelona travel to England to take on Tottenham Hotspur in a game played in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
Tottenham Hotspur have been the team who have kept improving year by year. Their manager Mauricio Pochettino has done a shrewd job of getting players who fit his ideologies perfectly. It can very well be argued that their starting XI is comparable to one of the best in the world. But, they have always lacked some bench strength, and it is this problem that has once again come to bite them. Some of the marquee players of the team appear to be unfit, and this can be a problem for Tottenham Hotspur.
Meanwhile, Barcelona would want to win this game to get an early lead in terms of getting qualified for the Round of 16. They have been the best team in Spain this year, and it is expected that their full strength side will be at display on Wednesday. If they perform at their maximum potential, nobody on this planet can even come close, and it would be ominous for Tottenham Hotspur to take them on with the injuries the English side are nursing.
