Juventus 2 goal spoils with Tottenham in Champions League knockout clash

Gonzalo Higuain got a brace for the host in the first nine minute
– But a superb strike Harry Kane and a stunning freekick from Christian Eriksen ensured that Spurs left the Turin stadium with at least a point and two away goals

North London side, Tottenham came from two goals deficit to secure a hard fought 2 – 2 away draw with Juventus as the Turin stadium.
Both team head into the game with victories over domestic rivals in their League. Juventus defeated Fiorentina 0 – 2 away from home while Tottenham had a sweet 1 – 0 over fellow north London rivals Arsenal.

The host wasted no time in getting the game going as Gonzalo Higuain got on the end of a cross from Miralem Pjanic just two minute from kickoff and showed great technique to fire the ball into the back of the net.

Juventus striker Higuain set a personal record for himself as he got another goal in the 9th minute of the game which made him the fastest scorer of a brace in the Champions League for Juventus.
Usual suspect Harry Kane pulled one back for his side in the 35th minute as he ran on to a clever pass from Dele Alli and finding himself in a one-on-one situation with the keeper. He still has work to do but finishes with aplomb into the back of the net.

Christian Eriksen got the much desired equaliser for Tottenham and scored from the free kick with a daisy-cutter that goes under the jumping wall and into the bottom left corner.
