While Juventus collapsed in Turin to draw 2-2, it was Tottenham's turn on home soil to throw away a winning position on become the first English team to be eliminated this season.

"I just think it was one of those things. We will keep going". "This hurts a lot".


Tottenham were anxious and Juventus went for the kill three minutes later.Higuain's pass dissected Tottenham's poorly-executed offside trap and Dybala ran through to drill a cool finish past Hugh Lloris.

In terms of experience, he is still very much a Champions League rookie.

"We believe in the history", he added.

So poor in the first half, Juventus showed more far desire and drive after the interval.They almost equalised when Argentine forward Dybala fired over after sloppy Tottenham defending gifted him a sight of goal. Son seemed to be in pain but managed to brush it off and score the opening goal of the night a few minutes later.


Mauricio Pochettino has defended his team from the charge of inexperience and believes his side dominated the game, while Juventus scored two goals from the three opportunities they created.

"This was the game that we had in mind", Chiellini told reporters in his postgame comments, according to Juventus.com. They can achieve far more in the coming years, it was just unfortunate they were drawn against such a savvy team in Juventus in the last 16. We played well but sometimes football is like this.

He said the Spurs historically blow many chances at success after his Juventus squad won its second leg matchup 2-1 Wednesday at Wembley Stadium in London.

Vertonghen looked a picture of innocence as Juve's furious players surrounded Polish referee Szymon Marciniak, who opted against pointing to the spot despite replays confirming the Tottenham defender had taken Costa's legs and not the ball.


"It was a very hard match against a great side like Tottenham, who always give their best and are aggressive, but we know English teams always leave gaps at the back and would give us opportunities", he told Mediaset Premium, via Football Italia. "We were under the cosh at times in the first half, but only at certain moments".
