Our captain Hugo Lloris is expecting a “big battle” when we host Juventus in the second leg of our Champions League last-16 clash on this evening.

We drew 2-2 last time out after Mauricio’s men recovered from a terrible start in Turin that saw us concede twice inside the opening 10 minutes.

And according to Sky Sports the team will now be looking to make home advantage count as they bid to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2010/11.

“We had a good result in Juve, but it is not enough to think the job is done,”:Lloris told Sky Sports. “It’s going to be another big battle at Wembley.

He added: “Juve are used to playing at this level and they have a lot of experience and they know how to play this type of game. It’s a bit new for us but we approach this competition with a lot of excitement and we will be ready.”

We have been in terrific form in recent weeks having won our past three games in a row and are unbeaten since they lost to Manchester City on December 16th.

Harry Kane is the in-form striker in Europe and Lloris said: “He belongs to the best, simple as that.
“He shows his quality and ability every weekend. I am really proud to be his team-mate and he is quite special for Tottenham and England.
“He is still a young player with a lot of things to achieve, but he has got the right mentality and he is a great leader for the team too.

Lloris added: “It’s a bit like the team needs Harry, but Harry needs the team too. He works so well and hopefully he will carry on in the same way for the future.”
