Juventus 2 Tottenham Hotspur 2: Spurs stage magnificent fightback in Turin


"We had a lot of chances but with the start in mind, the first nine minutes, we can be very happy with the result in the end", Eriksen said after the match, according to Tottenham.

The return leg will be on March 7 at Wembley.

Tottenham travel to Juventus for Tuesday's Champions League second-round first leg.

"It's something that makes me insane because you aren't able to analyse how good teams are in the Champions League".

"It is important to say that we played with one day less". It is Tottenham, rather than the Italian champions, who have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals. "Football gives and it takes away, but I don't think there's any need to get depressed".

City romped to a 4-0 win thanks to lkay Gundogan scoring twice.

What a great couple of weeks it's been for Tottenham. "It was only natural that we would suffer after going 2-0 up".

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri reacted strongly afterward when it was suggested his team, which is going for a seventh successive Serie A title, should have beaten Spurs, which is fifth in the Premier League.

Pochettino's side looked down and out after the first 10 minutes with Miralem Pjanic lifting a free-kick into the penalty area and an unmarked Higuain volleying past Hugo Lloris, despite being in an offside position.

Their poor opening plunged towards disastrous as Juve doubled their advantage in the ninth minute when Higuain plundered his second from the penalty spot after Ben Davies had crudely clattered into Federico Bernardeschi.

Higuain should have put his side 3-1 up before half-time, only for the striker to fluff his lines from the penalty spot. It was the first goal Juventus had conceded in 696 minutes.

"We have a draw against Tottenham in the Champions League and it is like a big loss".

"We played a great game against strong opponents and it's a pity we only drew, but there is still a second leg and we go there knowing that we can still win", Bernardeschi told Mediaset.

There was barely a boring moment and when Tottenham were awarded a foul 25 metres from goal Eriksen drilled a low shot that deceived Buffon and nestled into the corner. Both Kane and Dele Alli went close before Alli played a clever ball in behind the Juventus defence and as Buffon advanced, Kane slipped past him and rolled his shot home. It's true that we started the game not in a good way, but that showed that we are mature enough to compete in the Champions League.
