‘Forget that Dybala’s back’, ‘I want to absolutely batter them’ Tottenham fans discuss tough Juventus tie ahead of the game

It is one of the biggest weeks for Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham Hotspur as they prepare to host Juventus for the second-leg of Champions League round of 16 tie at Wembley.

Ahead of the second leg at Wembley, the game is finely poised with Spurs clawing back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Juventus last month.

Gonzalo Higuain stunned Spurs when he scored twice inside 10 minutes. But in the first-half itself, Harry Kane halved the deficit and brought the North Londoners back into the game.

But just before half-time, Serge Aurier conceded a penalty after tripping Douglas Costa in the box. Higuain, in a bid to complete his hat-trick, marched ahead to take the penalty but made a mess of it as he rattled the bar before the referee blew the half-time whistle.

After the break, it was all about Spurs as Pochettino’s men looked livelier and sharper. They looked a different beast and the intensity suddenly increased from the visitors which pushed Juventus on the back-foot.

The constant pressure in the second-half finally paid rich dividends as Christian Eriksen scored a clever free-kick past hapless Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

And the game which once looked to end up on a sorry note for Spurs finished all smiles for them as they demonstrated their gritty display to come from 2 goals down to earn a memorable draw ahead of the decisive second-leg at Wembley.

With excitement amongst the Spurs fans sky-high, let us see how they reacted to the club’s post on Twitter.
