Pochettino Confident Spurs Good Enough To Beat Juventus, Fears Higuain

Juventus Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini vies for the ball with Tottenham Hotspur's English striker Harry Kane during their UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg match at Wembley Stadium in London on Wednesday Pochettino reveals which Juve player he fears the most

"I think we have arrived at the point where we have maturity and we know exactly the expectation from the manager and how he wants us to play football".

But the 30-year-old, who scored twice and missed a penalty in the 2-2 first-leg draw in Turin last month, now looms as a major threat to Spurs' hopes of reaching the quarter-finals, with Pochettino in no doubt over his quality.

"We are a fearless team - very positive people that love the challenge", he said. "We need to feel free".

"If we perform the way we usually do we will be close to winning and going through to the next stage".

"Higuain is one of the greatest strikers in the world", he said.

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.

"If something happens which is not quite ideal or is only half a mistake, then in my next game, I am always determined to provide the answer I feel is due", he said at a news conference at Wembley.

Netflix has announced that they have renewed the anthology series , Black Mirror for season 5 with a special video wall teaser. Jodie Foster also became the series' first female director with " Arkangel ".

"You can see the team is more mature".

Juventus have Paulo Dybala available again after he missed the first leg through injury and it was revealing that Pochettino mentioned the Argentinian attacker in the same breath as Lionel Messi.

"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.

"I don't know how Tottenham will play, but considering the first leg result, there's more pressure on them because they are the favourites", he said.

"But when they game starts, you are very focused on your own situation and your motivation to win the game".

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

"It's a massive tragedy". I took three hours to have lunch with him and he was a great kid, great person, great professional, great player.
