Higuain, Kane spearhead Juventus v Tottenham clash

Juventus vs Tottenham Hotspur Juventus have won 14 of their last 16 matches in all competitions

This week Tottenham will travel to Turin where they will be taking on Italian champions, Juventus, in their first leg tie. The same goes for Juve: "if they get past us, they can triumph in this tournament", Llorente who made 66 appearances for Juventus from 2013 to 2015 added.

It was also an exciting first half in Basel, with Manchester City scoring three goals before going on to win 4-0 to leave it with one foot in the quarterfinals.

"Tottenham have a young team and we're building a nice project, but I think it's impossible to compare the history of Juventus with Tottenham. Because 2-0 down in this situation always you need more energy to try to do the same".

Despite so many impressive displays, the Old Lady still find themselves sat second, behind leaders Napoli, in what has been quite an enthralling race for the title in Italy this season. Spurs have taken seven points from a possible nine after league games against Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.

He said: "Juventus is a great team, one of the best in Europe, and they have a lot of experienced players who know what it is to compete in the Champions League - in three seasons they have played two finals".

"One-to-one clashes are important but the whole team will have to do its best to limit, not only Harry Kane, but the "fab four" (Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min) in the attacking area".

"But we must be careful about his fitness and when it is good and he can train, he can make this type of performance because he is a great talented player". "We have the hope we can win in Wembley". "It was a massive injury that we needed to be cautious over because we can not put at risk his career", said Pochettino.

"The Champions League is a odd tournament, as anything could happen". I'm happy with the players.

"It's also true what David Trezeguet said: 'It's only when you leave Juventus that you realise what you had.' I miss it like insane and would love to return".

For Tottenham Hotspur, this game concludes what has been a tough run of fixtures; but also a period in which they have really flourished. Over the last years, with the goals he has scored, he has been on the level of the best. They recovered from their early setbacks to come back into the contest and head into the second leg in the driving seat.
