Tottenham manager Pochettino: We deserved to beat Juventus

The Warm-Up Tottenham thrash Juventus…2-2

It was probably the worst thing that could have happened to them because they sat a little bit and Tottenham had no option but to push on.

Spurs conceded twice inside the opening 10 minutes of their Champions League first leg clash, as Gonzalo Higuain struck on the end of a free kick and then converted from the penalty spot. After that however it was pretty much one-way traffic from the away side who controlled possession and carved out chance after chance.

Tottenham had managed to reduce the deficit by then through Harry Kane, who was thwarted on several other occasions by Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, and Christian Eriksen leveled in the 72nd minute. "He and Dele Alli have got to be very careful with the way they throw themselves to the ground".

"At 2-0 down after eight or nine minutes, you think 'this could get a little messy if they are not careful.' But I thought the character they showed for the rest of the half completely dominated Juve". We deserved a victory more than a draw. We showed great character against a team that in the last three years played two finals, with incredible experience on the pitch.

"Fantastic game", said Pochettino.

This gritty display against the two-time champions of Europe will certainly give Spurs momentum going into a crucial spell of games.

"They showed that against one of the most respected defences in the game, they took the game to them".

Tottenham's 3-1 dismantling of the European champions Real Madrid at Wembley in October, coming after a 1-1 draw in the Bernabeu a fortnight earlier was supposed to be because of a depressed opposition.

"We are doing our best and my players should be happy because they are having an fantastic season".

Juve were risky on the counter-attack with Higuain nearly scoring a third but Tottenham were back in the tie when Alli picked out Kane after 35 minutes and the England striker rounded Buffon before sliding home.

Have your say! How important was Erik Lamela and Mousa Dembele in Tottenham's away draw with Juventus?

Kane was delighted to take two valuable away goals into the second leg at Wembley, meaning Juventus have to outscore Spurs to win.

"We still have a good chance to qualify in London, but it's totally insane to think that Juventus has to win 3-0 in the round of 16 in the Champions League".
