“We have to show respect to Ronaldo for what he has won, his level and how he is still doing it.”
Tottenham sit level on points with Real at the top of their group with seven points from three games.
And there was some uncertainty over whether Kane would play after sitting out Saturday’s defeat at Manchester United with a hamstring injury.

“Yes, we are very confident,” Pochettino said.
“He is on the list. We have one day more to assess him, but I think it maybe can be possible for him to be available to play tomorrow.
“But I don’t want to say 100 per cent sure about that decision, because we have one day more.
“Today and yesterday was good with the training, and now it’s with the medical staff and everyone to try to take the right decision, because it’s important to take the right decision.”
