      Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says his Tottenham team will show nothing but respect to the Bianconeri, whilst Harry Kane is hoping for a good performance

      TAKING A LEAF OUT OF THE BIANCONERI'S BOOK

      Pochettino: "I think Juventus is a massive club, we cannot compare ourselves with them. In their history they have won everything. We have a nice project at Tottenham but it's impossible to compare with the history, of course our dream is to reach the level of Juventus. We will see if we can compete against them, they have an amazing squad with top players, the players that will play tomorrow have the capacity and capability to perform at the level that Juve demand.

      "We will take the competition step by step, not many people believed in us that we could get to the next stage, we won the group and now we are here. We need to show that we deserve to get to the next stage, we need to play well and score goals against a team that is tough to score against. Tomorrow is about belief, we are going to be brave and try to win whilst still showing massive respect to our opponents. It will be a game to enjoy for me, as it was always my dream to play Champions League games like this, it's an exciting moment for us.

      "I am so happy to be here and it’s the first time in 45 years that I've been able to come here, my great, great grandfather came from Piedmont so it's very exciting to be here, but my focus is on tomorrow and we have to try and be careful." 

      A MASSIVE MATCH AWAITS

      Kane: "We’re really excited, it's a massive game and these are the sorts of games we want to be involved in, hopefully we can put in a performance. They have done very well and kept a lot of clean sheets, but we've scored a lot of goals in the Premier League and I want to test myself against the biggest teams and best defences and this is definitely one of them.

      "Wins over Dortmund and Madrid give us the confidence to come to places like here, we have to believe we can come here and win, nobody expected us to get out of group but we finished top.

      "Chiellini is an amazing defender, in my first start for England it was a tough battle against him and a good introduction to international football, we know how good their defence is and I'm looking forward to the challenge of coming up against them."
