Higuain lands fastest double in history of the Champions League

Highlights clip shows just how brilliant Mousa Dembele was against Juventus Pochettino lauds 'amazing' Eriksen after Juventus draw - 'He always steps up'

DF Jan Vertonghen, 8 - Contributed to Spurs' disastrous start when his uncharacteristically rushed clearance allowed Juventus to build pressure, resulting in the free kick that led to the opening goal.

Higuain had put Juventus - losing finalists twice in the past three seasons - two goals up within the first nine minutes at the Allianz Stadium. After that however it was pretty much one-way traffic from the away side who controlled possession and carved out chance after chance.

Tottenham were wobbling but responded to dominate for long periods and Kane halved the deficit in the 35th minute with his ninth goal in nine appearances in the competition.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri warned they would be ready to challenge again for a place in the quarter-finals after extending their unbeaten run at home in Champions League fixtures to 23 games.

"The performance of Eriksen and Kane and Dele Alli was productive".

"The team played well, with chances to go 3-0 and 3-1", he added. "After their second goal, however, we were the more unsafe side".

These include roster construction, salary cap management, et cetera, which was extremely valuable in McDaniels' decision to stay. He has not picked up a football, but he is throwing balls, working on arm speed. "No, I'm not going to do any comments".


"It was an excellent performance after that and we take two away goals to Wembley".

"Fantastic game", said Pochettino.

Pochettino also paid tribute to former Spurs player Ryan Mason, who has retired after admitting defeat in his quest to recover from the fractured skull he suffered in a clash of heads with Gary Cahill in January 2017. But we showed we are mature enough to compete in the Champions League.

Higuain took the ball but rather than celebrate a first-half hat-trick his penalty rattled the crossbar. 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.

"We are making huge efforts and we are about to go through in the Coppa Italia, but if a draw like tonight you believe it could repress us that is something I don't accept". We are going to London to play in a final and we will have to be very good to go through. When the likes of Giorgio Chiellini and Gianluigi Buffon are protecting your goal it's no real surprise that you don't concede too many goals. "Yes, we have the dream and hope that we can beat them at Wembley". "The first minutes were hard but it was wonderful how we reacted".

"After 10 minutes, we could have been 2-0 down", Guardiola said.
