Tottenham star Llorente describes Harry Kane's qualities

Toby Alderweireld

Ahead of the first leg of a last-16 encounter with Juve on Tuesday, the World Cup victor said: "Juve is a hard place to leave".

And Llorente, 32, is clearly looking forward to returning to Turin where many of his former team-mates still play.

Dybala has scored 17 goals in all competitions this season, though he is yet to net in the Champions League.

"It'll be a wonderful sensation".

"It's a special club because, despite being an enormous club, it's like a family inside". While by no means exhaustive, here's five reasons Tottenham can win the Champions League.

"I spoke to Claudio Marchisio, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Giorgione Chiellini".

"I am ready to face Chiellini and also accustomed to getting a few knocks; I trained with him for two years! Harry is also super professional".

The Belgian worldwide just missed over three months of action through injury and made his return last week against League Two side Newport County, meaning being thrown in against Juve would be a huge gamble from Mauricio Pochettino - even if it does somehow impact Tottenham's hopes of keeping the defender.

The footballing world is giving Tottenham as much chance of winning the Champions League as seeing a sumo wrestler compete in ice dance at the Olympics. "Buffon is the best captain I ever had", he said.

"I'm going through the best time since I started coaching Tottenham", he told La Gazzetta dello sport.

Ahead of facing Junvetus, Pochettino feels there are two key factors for Tottenham, playing with the head and, of course, Harry Kane: "Against Italians, the first requirement is intelligence".

Juventus were last last year's Serie A champions and now sit second in the league behind Napoli, trailing them by only a point after playing 24 games each.
