An article in The Mirror describes how Brazil star Lucas Moura has urged his teammates to go for the win to kill off Juventus on Wednesday night – because the Italian champions are so dangerous.

We fought back to draw 2-2 in Turin and a low-scoring draw will be enough to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

However, who made his Spurs debut off the bench in the Allianz Stadium last month, said: “The 2-2 in the first leg was a good sign for us but it would be a mistake to approach the Wembley game looking to sit on that result.

He added: “Juventus are a great team – one of the best in Europe. They have been finalists in two of the last three Champions League finals. They have the experience and the nerves to snatch qualification also in an away game like this.They are a very balanced team and know how to defend well and how to exploit the chances they manage to create. In the match in Torino, their start was explosive but then we managed to get the draw.

He went on to say:”But that evening has to sound a warning – Juventus are capable of scoring two goals in minutes.”

Moura signed in January for £25m from Paris Saint-Germain.

He added: “In Paris I had five fantastic years and then something broke and the last six months were difficult,”:he told Gazzetta dello Sport.Now is not the time to speak of certain things. I will just say that I am happy with the choice I made. Tottenham is a club of the future There are players of international stature like Kane, Eriksen, Alli and Son

He concluded: “There is a young coach who is prepared and ambitious. It is a club with an modern infrastructure. In football you don’t become big by chance. Plans are fundamental.”Moura is unbeaten in his first five games including a first goal in the FA Cup at Rochdale. “It has gone well,”:he said. “The only problem has been the weather. I have never played in the snow like what happened with Rochdale but I will also get used to this.”
