The Tottenham talisman is likely to feature against the Champions League holders, with Mauricio Pochettino 'very confident' his striker will make the Wembley showpiece.

There can be no denying that Tottenham Hotspur missed Harry Kane in the recent crunch game against Manchester United. Ruled out of that 1-0 defeat with a slight thigh strain, Mauricio Pochettino's admission before the fixture that the Spurs star was also in a race to be fit for what is arguably an even bigger match against Real Madrid on Wednesday left fans fearing the worst.

Unsurprisingly, Pochettino's most recent comments to the press gave supporters reason for optimism going into the game against the current Champions League holders.

Spurs were lacking attacking threat in and around the box at Old Trafford, with an inability for the London side's forward players to hold up the ball and bring others in to play noticeable compared to when Kane is on the pitch.

But the Argentine had encouraging news ahead of the battle at the top of Group H, while the media had shots of the striker looking relaxed in training and giving an 'okay' sign when asked how he was feeling.

"We're very confident," Pochettino said of Kane's chances of featuring at Wembley, as quoted by Sky Sports. "Maybe it's possible for him to play but I don't want to say 100 per cent.

"He was training with the group and was good, the same level as the team."

There was a collective sigh of relief on Twitter, with a fair bit of confidence swelling in North London's Champions League representative.

The hope will be that any final tests show Kane is ready to be let loose on a Real side who suffered a shock defeat to Girona in their last league game.
