Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham do not have the advantage in the second leg despite forcing a brilliant 2-2 away draw with Juventus in the Champions League.

With Spurs trailing 2-0 in the first half of the match in Turin, Kane rounded Gianluigi Buffon after getting in behind Juventus' defence and passed the ball into the open goal to bring his side back into the tie with a valuable away goal.

Italian Serie A giants Juventus have received a major setback in their Uefa Champions League campaign following the injury of their star man Paulo Dybala who will be unavailable for Tuesday night clash with Tottenham Hotspurs. I think the players know we don't have to change too much and in the last three Premier League games they have started to feel good.

"And for the fans it will be fantastic because the hope to go through to the quarter-finals is there".

They're bang on the money - how on earth did he last the full 90 minutes?

"It will be an wonderful game for us but it's now the knockouts and it's open, 50-50". We've got to be sensible and experienced, as well. It's a good example of the capacity we have.

"We shouldn't just think of Tottenham as Kane, but as a whole team". Only seven minutes that it was hard to handle.

A Gonzalo Higuain double had put Juventus two goals clear inside 10 minutes and left the visitors with a mountain to climb at the raucous Allianz Stadium.

"My feeling was so bad", he said.

"We start a little bit sloppy". I can understand. And we are frustrated too, because when you cannot play it is hard to accept.

But Pochettino, when reflecting on last Saturday's 1-0 win over Arsenal, said: "It is important for the belief of the team and for the confidence".

From a position of control, however, Juve began to retreat and allow Tottenham's creative department of Eriksen, Mousa Dembele, Erik Lamela and Dele Alli to pull the strings.

"I think Christian played an unbelievable game - he was incredible, he was fantastic", he added.

"He is 28 and it was a massive injury that we needed to careful and be cautious, because we can not put at risk his career", he said. All the types we have in our team are players who like to go forward, try to create something.
