“Incredible victory”, “Dembele ending Khediras career” Tottenham fans on cloud nine after Juventus result

Published

on

It’s nights like these that just prove how far we have come under Mauricio Pochettino, who has worked impressively with limited resources but has made us a tough team to play against.  Our Champions League group might have been tough but facing Juventus away from home in a knockout tie is something else.

There must have been flies in the stomach of the fans and things certainly did not start in the best of fashions as a quick free-kick was smartly slotted in by Gonzalo Higuain in the second minute of the match. Fans must have been fearing a mauling when the same player stepped up to slot in a penalty in the 9th minute but that is when Spurs’ revival started.

Without Paulo Dybala in the side, we seemed to have the better attack, at least on paper and with Harry Kane smartly rounding Gianluigi Buffon in the first half and scoring with his left foot, a 1-goal deficit was good enough to return with and possibly knockout Juventus at home.

But this side is different and there was no keeping us down, as in the 71st minute, a free-kick close to Juve box was given to us. Eriksen, who had tormented the home team with his running and passing until then, stunned the hosts with a low kick that flummoxed the wall and Buffon.

The match ended 2-2 with Tottenham having the benifit of the away goals. When the return leg is played in two weeks’ time, the onus is on us to complete the job and seeing what we did to one of the best teams in the world, there is no doubt we can progress to the next round of the competition.

Twitter was right ecstatic with the performance of the side, especially of Mousa Dembele who was a beast in the heart of midfield and here are the best reactions from the match.
