Dele Alli: “Crucial to not get carried away”

Tottenham Hotspur and England Midfielder Dele Alli has made it clear that the Juventus tie is far from over for his side.

The first-leg ended in a 2-2 draw at Juventus’ Allianz Stadium in February. After leading Spurs 2-0 after 10 minutes in Turin the Bianconeri capitulated and allowed Spurs to come away with a favourable result, putting Juventus in an underdogs situation for tomorrow’s game.

Spurs’ Alli spoke to Italy’s version of the UEFA’s official website ahead of the highly anticipated second-leg.

“In the first 10 or 20 minutes Juve showed what they’re capable of, then we were able to show what we could do, finding ourselves two goals down straight away wasn’t nice, but being able to pull it back in their back yard was a great achievement for us and now we start from a great position.

“That doesn’t mean it’s over though. I know that our opponents have so much quality and can be dangerous at any moment. That’s what the Champions League is like, opponents are dangerous even when you have the ball, so it will be crucial not to get carried away.

“If we have the ball, we need to make sure we tighten up quickly and stay focused. We’ll have a clear tactical plan in our head when we kick off, and we’ll do everything we can to win the game as that’s the objective”.
