Tottenham striker Harry Kane: We know we're expected to defeat Juventus

Tottenham striker Harry Kane accepts they're favourites going into their Champions League clash with Juventus.

Spurs have one foot in the quarter-finals after a 2-2 draw in the first leg and go into the game at Wembley in an unfamiliar position before a big European night.

Kane said: “Probably we were not the favourites before but people are looking at us after that performance at Juventus and saying we should go through now. We have got to cope with that and see how we come through it.

“We know we played well out there and on another day we could have won but we are not getting carried away.

“We know it is a big game. Champions League nights are what we all want to be involved in and this is a chance to get into the quarter-finals. Of course there will be a bit more added pressure and maybe more nerves, but that is why we play football."

He added: “The way we play and the way the manager sets us up in every game, we are always on the front foot, always pressing, always playing attacking football."

“That is the way we play. We are going to try and win the game. If it gets to 80 minutes and it is still 0-0 then we might have a different approach but from the start we will press high and try to create as many chances as possible.

“We know it will be tough but we played well away from home and hopefully we can take it into this game."
