Lucas Moura says Tottenham can win the Champions League if they continue to work hard in the competition.
The Brazilian scored his first goal for the club on his full debut against Rochdale in the FA Cup on Sunday.
He made a cameo appearances towards the end of Spurs’ 2-2 draw at Juventus, a result that sees Mauricio Pochettino’s side take two away goals into the second leg at Wembley.
And Moura believes that result proves Tottenham have what it takes to win the competition.
“The Champions League is the most difficult cup but I think we have the capacity to win. If we always think positive, always work hard,” said the 25-year-old. (Quotes via Sky Sports.)
“I think we did a big game against Juventus away. It’s not easy to score in Italy. I think we had a good result and the next game I am sure that we can win, that we can do a big game with our fans and to continue.”
Spurs were the surprise winners of their Champions League group ahead of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
They won five of their six games and earned 16 points, more than any other side in the group stages.
Despite conceding two goals in the opening nine minutes against Juventus, Tottenham’s performance in Turin was one of their best under Pochettino.
The tie is far from over with the sides level going into the second leg, but Spurs will know progression is possible if they replicate their displays against Madrid and Dortmund at Wembley.
