Champions League countdown - Juventus players arrive at Wembley

Tomorrow is the highest level we can play at in football - the Champions League against one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

With all of that being said, there is a slim chance that their hard work, in the league specifically, could mean nothing unless they manage to finish in third position as opposed to fourth.

That leaves it all to play for at Wembley Stadium and Tottenham are brimming with confidence, with two away goals possibly proving crucial.

"In football and in life, when you have the chance to play a competition like this, you need to take it because you never know what will happen in the next few years".

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

Moving there for the entire 2017-18 home campaign, they started with a loss and a draw to leave them with just two wins in 12 games at Wembley since it re-opened in 2007.

There is a feeling that Pochettino is on the cusp of something special, but he urges caution, preferring to concentrate exclusively on the job in hand against a club who have reached two of the last three Champions League finals.

But Lloris says they will be positive.

However, they rebounded to beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in their Champions League group-stage opener, kick-starting a current run of one loss in 21 home games. The Tottenham manager also described Higuaín as "one of the greatest strikers in the world" - although he is a major doubt with an ankle injury.

"It's important in this moment to show solidarity, and I think all our thoughts go to the family and friends of Astori".

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.

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

"It's going to be uphill against a very strong Spurs side but then you can get caught out if it's downhill, so we will be up for the challenge", he said.
