Well, Cristian Romero is obviously a very important player for Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs were without the Argentina international this past weekend as Antonio Conte’s side slumped to a surprise 2-1 defeat by Newcastle United in North London.
And with a degree of farce about both the Magpies’ goals, it enhanced Romero’s importance.
The former Atalanta powerhouse missed out with an injury against Newcastle and all eyes will be on Conte’s first XI tonight to see if he’s back.
Tottenham are gearing up to welcome Sporting Lisbon to the capital in a Champions League encounter.
But Romero might just be available, going by his Instagram activity.
On his Instagram story, the central defender, a £47 million addition [Daily Mail], posted a short promotional video of tonight’s clash in what could be considered a suggestion that he’ll be ready.
The Lilywhites are top of Group D in the Champions League.
But it’s only a point from second-placed Marseille, who are level with Sporting back in third.
Even bottom-of-the-table Eintracht Frankfurt have four points and could possibly still progress into the next phase of the competition.
Things are so tight and that’s why Romero is massive for tonight, because if Tottenham lose then they could possibly go into the final gameweek outside the top two and therefore under pressure to get a result away to Marseille, which is as tough a fixture as there is in the group.
