“We will try to dominate,” he said.
“We will try to be better, but it’s a massive challenge for us to dominate them.
“We will press high, try to play in the opposition’s half, try to be aggressive and brave.
“That’s how we feel football should be played.
“If they try to push us back deeper, then OK, we may have to adapt to their quality.
“But from the beginning we will be brave and aggressive and play to win the game.”
Spurs are without the suspended Dele Alli for the match in Spain, although Jan Vertonghen has returned from his ban and is available.
Victor Wanyama, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela are all sidelined and missed the win over Bournemouth.
