Pochettino Confident Spurs Good Enough To Beat Juventus

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has expressed confidence that his side can finish off Juventus in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League round 16 tie at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday.

Spurs fought back from 2-0 down to force Juventus to a 2-2 away draw in the first-leg on February 13.
Juve raced to a 2-0 lead through a brace from Gonzalo Higuain guian in the second and ninth (penalty) minutes.
Premier League top scorer Harry Kane pulled a goal back for Spurs in the 31st before Christian Eriksen completed the comeback on 71 minutes.
“We are going to enjoy tomorrow. We are playing against one of the best teams in Europe, but we are a brave team, positive people, that love the challenge and we all think we can win,” Pochettino said during his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.
Pochettino singled out his fellow Argentinean Higuian as one player they must be wary of.
“Higuain is one of the best strikers in the world. We need to be careful with him, but also be careful with all of their players. We are ready to compete,” he added.
The former Southampton boss went on to express his condolences over the death of Fiorentina skipper Davide Astori who passed away on Sunday.
“It’s a massive tragedy. I had the possibility to meet him, he was a great person, great player, great professional. We are devastated about the situation and I send all of my energy to his family.”
