This is Maurico Pochettino's second Champions League campaign as manager. He failed to make it out of the group stages with Tottenham last season while this is Peter Bosz's first Champions League campaign as manager.


Both are terrific young managers with lot to proves. Pochettino has already taken Spurs to a second place finish in the premier league and Bosz has taken Ajax to the Europa League final last season.

2. Attack
