Tottenham Hotspureventually lost on an aggregate of 3-4 after facing Juventus on Wednesday night, March 7 in their Champions League Round of 16 encounter which ended 1-2.
That’s it! Two goals in three second-half minutes have done for Spurs. The Italian champions are through to the quarter finals, while Spurs will have to concentrate on the FA Cup.
Tottenham were magnificent in the first half, with Heung-Min Son particularly impressive. They looked in control until Massimiliano Allegri changed Juve’s shape midway through the second, and almost immediately the tie turned in the Old Lady’s favour. Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala were the goalscoring heroes, but Giorgio Chiellini was surely the man of the match, a colossus at the back, thwarting all attempts by Spurs to force extra time.
This will hurt Tottenham now, but Juve’s experience in this competition showed in the end … and should Mauricio Pochettino’s men make the top four of the Premier League again, perhaps this experience will stand them in good stead next year.
