Tottenham midfielder Sandro is looking forward to the Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid - and sees no reason why the north London side should fear the two-legged contest.

Spurs have already beaten Italian giants AC Milan and Inter Milan in reaching the last eight of Europe's premier club competition. And the 22-year-old Brazilian, who joined the club from Internacional a little more than a year ago, is hoping the run can continue at the expense of Jose Mourinho's Spanish giants.


He told Sky Sports News: "It's a dream of mine, and any professional, to play against one of the biggest teams in the world - but we're going to go there without fear."

Sandro added: "We know they've got some of the best players in the world like Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria - but at the same time we've got fantastic players and we wouldn't have progressed so far in competition if we didn't.

"People now know that Tottenham are one of the strongest teams in Europe, and we deserve to be up there playing against the best."

Tottenham travel to Madrid on April 5, with the return at White Hart Lane eight days later.
