Tottenham manager Pochettino: We cannot compare with Juventus

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says the club cannot compare themselves with Juventus.

The two clubs will face off in their Round of 16 first-leg clash at Juventus Stadium on Tuesday night.

Juventus have lost the last two Champions League finals, against Real Madrid and Barcelona, while Tottenham are aiming to advance to the last eight of the competition for just the second time.

And Spurs' Argentine coach understands the gulf in pedigree between the two clubs.

"I think Juventus are an exceptional team; we cannot make comparisons," Pochettino said in Monday's media conference.

"In history they have won everything and reached the final twice in the last three seasons. We are a young team and we are still building our project.

"Our dream is to get to the level of Juventus: we will see tomorrow if we can compete with them."
