‘I’m in disbelief’, ‘We didn’t deserve this’ – Tottenham Fans in disbelief after shock defeat against Juventus

Published

on

Tottenham were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League after two goals in three minutes from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala sealed the Old Lady’s qualification in the quarter-final of the competition.

Coming on the back of a 2-2 draw in Turin from the first leg of the round, it were Tottenham who opened the scoring through Son Heung-Min some six minutes before the halftime. The scoreline could well have stated differently had Tottenham were a bit more clinical. The likes of Harry Hane and Son Heung-Min were awarded a host of opportunities but Buffon stood firm to deny everything the duo threw at him.

Tottenham were in cruise control in the first half, but Juventus could well have had the last laugh when defender Jan Vertonghen bought Douglas Costa down in the area with a clumsy challenge. Referee Szymon Marciniak and his assistant simply waved play on and the chance went begging. Some minutes before that, Harry Kane somehow managed round off Giorgio Chiellini before getting past Gigi Buffon and all he had to do was to find the net. The striker’s attempt, however, hit the side netting.

A defeat means Tottenham lost their first game in 18 matches while for the visitors, they are now unbeaten since 22 November – a run of 20 games. Having said that, Tottenham have become the first English club to get knocked out of the Champions League as Manchester City – despite a 2-1 defeat against Basel – and Liverpool are through in the quarter-finals, while Chelsea and Manchester United are yet to play their second leg.

Juventus, soon after the hour’s mark, bounced back strongly but it is safe to say their goals were a result of poor marking by Tottenham defenders. Stephan Lichtsteiner had delivered a cross into the area towards Sami Khedira, and although the German’s initial effort seemed off target, Gonzalo Higuain came out of nowhere to tap it into the net. Some three minutes later, the Argentine was involved in Juventus’ second when he found Paulo Dybala making a run through on goal and the 24-year-old made no mistake in giving his side the lead.

That being said, the only viable option Tottenham now have to get their hands on a silverware is the FA Cup, where they are scheduled to play Swansea City in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, for the fans, this is how they reacted to the defeat.
