Heung-min Son insists Tottenham "are not scared" of Champions League opponents Juventus ahead of their last-16 second-leg clash at Wembley.

Spurs came from two goals down to claim an impressive 2-2 draw against the Italian champions in Turin last month, and Son believes Mauricio Pochettino's side have enough talent to advance to the quarter-finals at the expense of last season's beaten finalists.

"We are hungry; we are not finished," said the South Korean, who has scored 15 goals in 41 games for Tottenham this season.

"It's a Champions League game against a difficult opponent. We play at home but we are not scared. We need to play our game, be confident and play forward like we play at Wembley. That's the most important thing.

"We are looking forward to playing against a good team, a good opponent. I hope it's a great atmosphere and I think we have a great opportunity.

"You can see how well Tottenham play. We deserve to play in the Champions League to the quarter-final or even more. We are good enough. If we win, everyone will be proud of Tottenham.
