Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris has warned his team-mates that Juventus have vast experience in the UEFA Champions League and will be tough to beat on Wednesday.

Spurs pulled off a 2-2 draw in Turin in the first leg of their last-16 clash with the Bianconeri, which should give them the advantage at Wembley Stadium with their two away goals.

However, Lloris admits the north London club are new to the experience of playing in the knockout phase of the Champions League and will need to be at their best to knock out Juve.

"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.

"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."

Mauricio Pochettino's side are on a three-game winning streak and have not tasted defeat since losing to Manchester City on December 16.

Kick-off is at 21:45 (SA time).
