Champions League countdown - Juventus players arrive at Wembley

Champions League countdown - Juventus players arrive at Wembley

Juve raced to a 2-0 lead through a brace from Gonzalo Higuain guian in the second and ninth (penalty) minutes.

Both teams to score as in the first leg is priced at (1.75) with BetKing.

Tottenham must manage the occasion as well as the opposition and Lloris said it would be foolish to try to dig in and protect their away goals advantage.

"Probably we were not the favourites before but people are looking at us after that performance at Juventus and saying we should go through now", Kane said. "But we're going to have to play better tomorrow and know that when we have to defend, we have to defend like we always have - not like in the first leg".

"I think we have arrived at the point where we have maturity and we know exactly the expectation from the manager and how he wants us to play football". We got a lot wrong technically in the first leg, but still created plenty of chances and didn't let them have many.

Spurs are unbeaten in 17 games in all competitions and Wembley, their temporary home while their new stadium is being built, has become somewhat of a fortress.

Tottenham finished in second place in the Premier League table last term and seven points behind champions Chelsea FC.

"He doesn't have to do too much", he smiled, "just start for the starting eleven".

"After the group stage we improved our reputation in Europe".

"I think he is one of the greatest strikers in the world, with Harry Kane", Pochettino said of his compatriot.

"We are a fearless team - very positive people that love the challenge", he said.

"Since the beginning of the season and last season when we used to play here in the Champions League or Europa League, it was a unusual feeling, a hard feeling".

Mauricio Pochettino's men have won three of their last four games since their exploits in Italy to find some good form ahead of the Champions League clash. This season, they have beaten Dortmund home and away with a home win against Madrid the high point, the greatest confidence-booster.

And next up is Italian giants Juventus, twice Champions League winners and runners-up twice in the past three seasons.

"It will be very tough but I think we are going to arrive in a flawless condition to challenge them".
