Champions League: Tottenham survives Juventus

Kane, who bagged Tottenham's victor against rivals Arsenal last weekend, paid tribute to the way his team mates recovered from conceding twice in the first nine minutes on Tuesday ― Gonzalo Higuain striking twice for the hosts.

Harry Kane halved the deficit and, after Higuain had squandered the chance to make it 3-1, missing with his second penalty of the match, Christian Eriksen equalised with a free kick in the 71st minute.

Chiellini, one of Europe's most uncompromising defenders, and Kane, a prolific scorer in the English Premier League, will cross swords again on Tuesday when Juve host Spurs in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.

"Juventus has never been favourites in this tie.

We had 50 per cent possibility before the match and we still have that after this match".

"Winning the Champions League is a dream, it's our objective but it's not easy at all. Yes, we have the dream and hope that we can beat them at Wembley".

"Christian is doing, in my few years, always an important player for us. If someone thought that Juventus could win 4-0 they were way off", said Allegri. It's not so obvious.

However, fresh, gusty, southerly winds will cause temperatures to rise, which will clear any frost. Saturday night will be windy, with wintry showers developing overnight.

"That drives me nuts, because people don't have an idea about the other teams. I'm very happy that it's still open and we're going to play the second leg in London".

"But [for] 83 minutes I think we dominate Juventus and that is a thing to prize, because not many teams can come here and dominate a team like Juventus". There's always ups and downs.

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. Gonzalo Higuaín scored both goals, the second from a spot kick after Ben Davies had brought down Federico Bernardeschi. "The fans have made it their home and that's the feeling we have at the moment here and the support is fantastic".

"We didn't have enough men at the front". That shows how good we were.

They stayed calm, took a deep breath of the crisp mountain air, and finished the first 45 minutes with three times as many passes completed and twice as much possession as the Bianconeri. Then we'll try to go forward in the Champions League.

Lloris got a strong glove to the penalty but was unable to prevent Higuain's shot creeping inside his right-hand post. Football gives and football takes.
