Spurs face PSG in NextGen last 16.

Tottenham's young stars face a trip to Paris in the knock out stage of the NextGen series last sixteen.

Spurs qualified as one of the best placed 3rd placed teams, after what can probably be described as a frustrating group stage, where they dropped points in games that they should have done better, but inconsistency is still a major issue at this stage of a player and teams development, and based on more recent results outside the competition, you hope that the side are running into some great form and confidence, and who knows how far they can get in a competition that ended so frustratingly last season.

Paris St Germain topped their group, which included Juventus, Man City and Fernabache, however the Italians will possibly be kicking themselves for not topping the group, as they were the only team in the group stages to remain unbeaten and earned four points from six against the French zillionaires. Perhaps this indicated that Juve will be the tournaments dark horses, but it does indicate that PSG are not invincible and though they will have home advantage, this promising Spurs side are more than capable of getting a result to take them into the quarter finals.

This round will be concluded in one game as opposed to a home and away leg and will be decided after extra time and penalties, should the game be all square after 90 minutes. This of course will favour the home side, however when you consider there may be added pressure on young shoulders and that Spurs are a quick and incisive counter attacking side, it is still anyones game. We only have to look at how Barcelona dismantled us at WHL, yet we gave them a footballing lesson in Spain, winning 4-1. In the group stage, seven of our eight points were secured on our travels, so perhaps that should be seen as a lucky omen that we have another away trip and have to get a result...
