Paulo Dybala is Juventus's jewel in the crown

Mauricio Pochettino says his courageous Tottenham Hotspur team must play with freedom against Juventus on Wednesday as they seek to book their place in the Champions League quarter-finals. We have arrived at the most important part of the season and we win or lose everything.

"We are going to enjoy tomorrow".

Tottenham are on a 17-match unbeaten run in all competitions, sit fourth in the Premier League, have an FA Cup quarter-final ahead and are within touching distance of the business end of the Champions League.

Tottenham battled back from 2-0 down with goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen to earn them a 2-2 draw in Turin last month - a result that means they are favourites to progress. "The players would be heroes because they will have competed with these big sides".

"If we start to think too much about playing for a draw, especially against an experienced team like Juve, you can be in trouble".

"Since the beginning of the season and last season when we used to play here in the Champions League or Europa League, it was a unusual feeling, a hard feeling".

In a new Wall Street Journal report about the Daniels payoff, sources tell the publication that "after Mr. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly", Cohen said.

"Of course there will be a bit more added pressure and maybe more nerves, but that is why we play football". "We feel we have respect for the brand of football we show, they respect us in Europe we feel".

"Higuain is one of the best strikers in the world".

Juventus' full squad for Spurs clash: Buffon, Pinsoglio, Szczesny, Del Favero, De Sciglio, Chiellini, Benatia, Alex Sandro, Barzagli, Rugani, Lichtsteiner, Pjanic, Khedira, Marchisio, Matuidi, Asamoah, Sturaro, Bentancur, Higuain, Dybala, Costa.

Meanwhile, Lloris and Pochettino have both expressed their sadness at the death of Italian defender Davide Astori, who passed away at the age of 31 at the weekend.

"Most of the players have been here two, three or four years together and we have many shared experiences", he said.

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