Harry Kane has said that manager Mauricio Pochettino is going to take the game to Juventus on Wednesday night and play an attacking game with high-pressing, quick football.
Tottenham have a fantastic chance to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after a 2-2 draw with Juventus at the Allianz Stadium a fortnight ago.
But Spurs aren’t going to sit back and try and protect their away-goal advantage.
“We’ll approach it the same as every game: press high, quick football, try and attack, try and score,” Kane said to ESPN.
“We know they need to score but we cannot go into the game with any negative thoughts. We have got to try and win the game.
“The way the manager sets us up in every game we are always on the front foot, always pressing, always playing attacking football. I know that is what he will say on Wednesday.
“That is the way we play. If it gets to 80 minutes and it is still 0-0, we might have a different approach – but from the start we will press high and try and create as many chances as possible.”
Football Insider verdict:
This is the beauty of Tottenham at the moment. They don’t have to go into a game against one of the elite European teams in a negative fashion. So many times in recent years English teams have gone in with a scared park-the-bus mentality. Sometimes it’s worked but it’s never good to watch. Pochettino plays a certain way and teams like Juventus know that. It still doesn’t mean they can do anything about it, and with Kane, Heung-MIn Son, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli, they’ve got an attck that can do damage to any team in the world. Man City might be in a different league but Tottenham are helping bring the pride back to British football.
