Late Juventus comeback sees Spurs crash out of the Champions League

3 Things Tottenham Must Do To Down Juventus

Gonzalo Higuain of Juventus scores the equalising goal.

Higuain began the comeback in the 64th minute from close range and then created the victor, holding off three Tottenham players before feeding Dybala to net his first Champions League goal of the season.

Dybala was out for two months with a hamstring strain and missed the first leg, but proved his fitness by playing over 90 minutes in Saturday's 1-0 win over Lazio, scoring the spectacular last-gasp winning goal.

Pochettino's men responded to the frenzied atmosphere that greeted them at Wembley and took just three minutes to first sting Gianluigi Buffon's fingertips through Son's rapier-like drive across goal. "Not the least of all because I'm optimistic by nature but I hope this is not the last this year for me or Juventus and that we'll have many more important ones", Buffon exclaimed at his pre-match press conference.

"But in football it is not about deserving, you have to score goals and not concede".

Kane said: "Probably we were not the favourites before but people are looking at us after that performance at Juventus and saying we should go through now".

Max Allegri's Juventus, meanwhile, have suffered heartache in the Champions League in recent years, having lost two finals in the last three years.

The two-time European champions have enjoyed some memorable moments in the competition, but coming back from the brink against such in-form opposition will rank as one of their finest hours. However, the early deficit didn't deter Tottenham, who built up their attack and eventually controlled the play.

Juventus had penalty shouts denied in the 18th minute when Jan Vertonghen embarked on a risky challenge and appeared to take down Douglas Costa in the box.

Heung-min Son's two goals and overall impressive showing against Huddersfield Town may have altered Pochettino's thinking though.

With a little over five minutes left until the break, Son powered onto a fine Ben Davies pass and drove into the area before unleashing an angled shot that fizzed just past the far post.

Like his former Argentina team-mate Simeone, Pochettino is coveted by some of Europe's biggest clubs. They may now be without Leonardo Bonucci, but still have the likes of Giorgio Chiellini, Mehdi Benatia and Andrea Barzagli to call upon and are one of the most shrewd outfits in Europe.

They almost equalised when Argentine forward Dybala fired over after sloppy Tottenham defending gifted him a sight of goal.
