Champions League: Tottenham 'deserved win' against Juventus

Champions League: Tottenham 'deserved win' against Juventus

Juve were risky on the counter-attack with Higuain nearly scoring a third but Tottenham were back in the tie when Alli picked out Kane after 35 minutes and the England striker rounded Buffon before sliding home. The 25-year-old crowned a fine display with the free-kick equaliser, a memorable way to mark his first UEFA Champions League knockout appearance.

Boss Massimiliano Allegri believes the Bianconeri have what it takes to win at Wembley next month.

Juve had conceded only once in their previous 16 games and the club have reached the Champions League final twice in the last three seasons.

Last night's match at the Allianz Stadium couldn't have started worse for the Londoners, who found themselves two goals down after nine minutes.

While Spurs missed some very presentable opportunities through Kane and Alli, Pochettino was very proud with the response his players showed. Alli won the free-kick centrally on the edge of the area after drawing the foul from Giorgio Chiellini and Eriksen drilled it low and into the bottom corner.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino even sounded disappointed his side had not gone on to end Juve's near five-year unbeaten run at home in European competition. Against a team with one of the best defensive records in football and a goalkeeper who had not conceded for 694 minutes until last night, they turned it on once more.

"Of course we are more mature".

After their side fell behind 2-0 inside 10 minutes, Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Harry Kane orchestrated a comeback that justified much of the hype that surrounds them and their team.

"We still have a good chance to qualify in London, but it's totally insane to think that Juventus has to win 3-0 in the round of 16 in the Champions League". "It showed character. It was an excellent performance after that, and we take two away goals to Wembley".

Tottenham displayed resilience, fighting spirit and nerve to salvage a 2-2 draw against Juventus after going 2-0 down inside nine minutes.

"Now it'll be like a final in London".

Three up inside 23 minutes with goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero, the runaway Premier League leaders added a fourth after the break when Gundogan again found the net.

Rio Ferdinand tore into a "rash" Serge Aurier after the Tottenham right back gave away a first-half penalty away to Juventus in the Champions League.
