"You need to live through different experiences and it was the case last season in the Champions League [when they went out at the group stage].

We are playing against one of the best teams in Europe, but we are a fearless team, positive people, that love the challenge and we all think we can win".

"If you start to think too much and play for a draw, especially against an experienced team like Juve, you could be in trouble. Champions League nights are what we all want to be involved in and this is a chance to get into the quarter-finals". The Tottenham manager also described HiguaĆ­n as "one of the greatest strikers in the world" - although he is a major doubt with an ankle injury.

Spurs qualified for the last 16 by finishing top of a group including the reigning European champions Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, and Pochettino feels the club have earned respect across the continent.

"I think that Tottenham are a side with characteristics and a way of playing which have bedded in and they will play the game they are capable of playing, which is an open, attacking, physically and technically strong football which will certainly cause us problems", he said.

Paulo Dybala, who also missed the clash in Turin, showed his quality with his first start for two months.

"If something happens which is not quite flawless 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.

"Of course, we are going to play one of the best teams, or clubs, in Europe", Pochettino said.

"When I was at the academy there were two goalkeepers who were my kind of inspiration - Iker Casillas and Gianluigi Buffon - so it's always special when you meet them and play against them". They have to play to win.

"Most of the players have been here two, three or four years together and we have many shared experiences", he said. I had the possibility to meet him, he was a great person, great player, great professional. As it turns out, the same thing could well happen again, despite the rules being changed.
