"We were almost out of the competition because if they had scored a third goal before half-time, it could have been very hard".
"If you don't think too much, and look for a draw, especially against an experienced team like Juve, you could be in trouble".
Pochettino said it was a "coincidence" that it happened in front of the journalists and that it was animated.
"That said, there will be chances for us in attack tomorrow night and the team that takes their opportunities will win". "For me he's one of the best, with Harry Kane".
"We know we played well out there and on another day we could have won but we are not getting carried away".
"If we perform the way we usually do we will be close to winning and going through to the next stage".More news: Predicted Spurs XI to face Huddersfield in the Premier League
"We are playing against one of the best teams in Europe, but we are a fearless team, positive people, that love the challenge and we all think we can win", Pochettino said during his pre-match press conference on Tuesday. The Bianconeri need to win or score three or more in a draw - which is why having Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala both fit again, despite being without the injured Mario Mandzukic, is an advantage.
"I don't know how Tottenham will play, but considering the first leg result, there's more pressure on them because they are the favourites", he said. Most of the players have been here for two, three or four years together.
"But when they game starts, you are very focused on your own situation and your motivation to win the game".
The former Southampton boss went on to express his condolences over the death of Fiorentina skipper Davide Astori who passed away on Sunday.
But Lloris says they will be positive. It's not only Italian football, it's the world of football that is affected. We're devastated to hear the news and we share the pain with all the people in Italy and Florence, and I send all my energy to his family.
"I know it's so hard, impossible to take away that pain and find an explanation".
