Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino promises to be 'aggressive' against Juventus' impenetrable defence

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino promises to be 'aggressive' against Juventus' impenetrable defence

He clearly feels that life around Spurs now - they defeated Manchester United 2-0 last month and drew 2-2 at Liverpool this month - is just about as good as it gets.

"I am in football after two, three years, I am conscious about the sport". We've got to play with our heads, with great technical quality as they are a very physical team, and we're going to have to find way of getting through in London, because that's where the passage to the next round will be decided.

Kane eventually made them pay, rounding Gianluigi Buffon to slide home.

The footballing world is giving Tottenham as much chance of winning the Champions League as seeing a sumo wrestler compete in ice dance at the Olympics.

"He was a fantastic striker and growing up I watched his goals". He's 28, it was a massive injury and we can not put in risk his career.

Meanwhile, Higuain has scored a credible 50 goals in 88 games for the Old Lady since making a club-record £81m (R1,35b) move from domestic rivals Napoli last season. You can not change the sense of the team. There's also [Stefano] Sturaro who can play in Matuidi's role, and he's probably the one most similar to Matuidi. The team always keeps the same principles.

Juventus will be missing Argentinian playmaker Paulo Dybala is still out with a hamstring strain - a player described by Tottenham manager as the Juventus version of Lionel Messi. Yes, we have the dream and hope that we can beat them at Wembley. For me it's a game to enjoy.

Whether Pochettino would have used a back three had Alderweireld been available is impossible to say, but what was clear was that the two-man central defense was ruthlessly exposed early on.

The Lilywhites cruised to top spot in their "group of death" beating Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund along the way.

"When I started my career as a manager my goal was to play in the Champions League, to play a team like Juventus here in Turin". The fans and the players have to work with each other as we did in those games and from then forward we've been really strong.

"We've got another big game on Tuesday and we need to get ready for that". We were very disappointed but that was our first experience of it.

"We need to play well and try to score, which will be hard against a team that is so tough to score against".
