Higuain & Dybala Send Spurs Crashing Out Of UCL

UEFA Champions League Report: Tottenham Hotspur v Juventus 07 March 2018

UEFA Champions League 

Result: Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Juventus (3-4 on agg.)

Date: 07 March 2018

Venue: Wembley Stadium

Juventus rallied from a goal down to earn a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the UEFA Champions League last 16 second-leg.

Tottenham were looking to rock European football after carrying a 2-2 advantage from the first-leg and were buoyed to knock out the mighty Juve.

A tried and tested line-up and formation were put out, and the north London side wasted no time taking control of the game with countless attacking forays.

Son Heung-min tested Gianluigi Buffon with a fierce drive from inside the area but the veteran shot-stopper heeded the call with a fine save after four minutes.

It took 15 minutes for their next threat after Harry Kane beat Giorgio Chiellini for pace to round Buffon, but shot to the side-netting.

Juve’s first attack saw them denied a legitimate penalty after Douglas Costa was tripped by Jan Vertonghen in full view of the match officials who waved away the appeal.

Son continued to pressure Juve with his movement off the ball and produced another save off Buffon, while he teased Chiellini before firing wide before the break.

The South Korean finally got on the scoresheet with an easy tap-in after a cross played in by Kieran Trippier allowed him with a miscued finish that just about beat Buffon in the 39th minute.

The dominance from the Londoners continued well into the second half, and were looking for a second goal but could only manage long-range shots from the likes of Dele Alli.

Massimiliano Allegri made two quick changes and changed his entire stall, with Kwadwo Asamoah and Stephan Lichtsteiner entering the field.

The Old Lady got back in the game after Gonzalo Higuain stretched out his right-foot to finish off Lichtsteiner’s cross after 64 minutes.

Juve then took complete control when they got through the heart of Spurs defence to play in Paulo Dybala for a top corner finish after beating the offside trap two minutes later.

Having lost control of the tie, Spurs were pressing for the equaliser to force extra time but were lacking the cutting edge in front of goal.

The runners-up of last year’s edition showed their experience and calmness in the closing stages to see out a 4-3 aggregate triumph and quarterfinal passage.

Small time team wanting to play among big boys. Last night I noticed that there is nothing special about Hotspur. They need to build for the next 15 years before we take them seriously. City and PSG are in the same whatsapp group

Xperience won the contest that 2 all square in Turin got them complacent & thinking juv can't spin the game as Juve looked into details of that game they realise only those chances spurs created turned out to be goals then they minimize those mistakes knowing that spurs defence is leaking goals but didn't intensify their game against them they let them be incharge of ball posetion as they already beleaved they will win easly at home

Spurs needs play regular in UCL, but first they need to win EPL to gain that courage they need so that they can compete in UEFA not just add numbers
