Tottenham's Harry Kane says the Champions League is 'not so scary
Harry Kane and Spurs have been in great form in Europe this season

Forward Harry Kane says the days when Tottenham felt like underdogs against Europe's biggest clubs are over.

Spurs have already sealed first place in Group H, having won 2-1 at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

That made it two wins from two against the German side and Mauricio Pochettino's squad also took four points off holders Real Madrid.

After finishing their group campaign at home to Apoel Nicosia next month, Tottenham will await the draw for the last 16 on 11 December, where they could be pitted against teams as strong as Paris Saint-German, Bayern Munich, Roma and Juventus.

However, it seems the north Londoners are developing a taste for taking on the top teams in Europe.

Kane said: "When you beat Borussia Dortmund at home and then draw at Real Madrid and beat them at home, you come away thinking this Champions League is not so scary.

"We went to Dortmund two years ago and got battered. It wasn't a game we looked forward to then.

"But now, when you are competing with and beating these big clubs in Europe, you tend to look forward more to playing them.

"You want to play in big stadiums against big clubs when you know you can do well.

"Everybody connected with the club should enjoy this moment.

"To think how far we have come from last year in the Champions League [when they exited at the Group stage] to now, when we've finished top with one game to go, is something very special."
