Tottenham have grown up, according to Christian Eriksen

Highlights clip shows just how brilliant Mousa Dembele was against Juventus

Spurs got off to a nightmare start in Turin, with Gonzalo Higuain netting a fabulous reverse-angled volley within the first two minutes of the game.

Higuain's second came from a penalty after Ben Davies fouled Federico Bernardeschi, with Lloris diving the right way but unable to stop the powerful drive.

Not only that but Kane's nine-goal haul from his first nine games is more than any other player in the history of Europe's blue-riband club competition ― one more than the quartet of Ronaldinho, Simone Inzaghi, Didier Drogba and Diego Costa.

Kane had pulled Tottenham back into the tie, beating veteran keeper Gianluigi Buffon on 35 minutes with Eriksen whipping in the second with a 70th-minute free-kick to leave it all to play for in London next month.

Juve, who had conceded only once in their previous 16 games in all competitions, will rue Higuain's missed penalty on the stroke of halftime but could have few complaints after being shaken to the core by a vibrant Spurs side.

Juventus' players couldn't get near the Belgian, who somehow combines brute force with grace as he glides across the turf. His seventh goal in the Champions League equals the record of Steven Gerrard in 2009/10 with more to come surely for this modern day Roy of the Rovers.

With Spurs now in hold of two away goals, they will host Juve at Wembley on the 7th of March.

Have your say! How important was Erik Lamela and Mousa Dembele in Tottenham's away draw with Juventus? "We started sloppily. But we showed great character and I feel so proud".

Pochettino praised his team for their response to falling 2-0 behind inside 10 minutes away from home.

"Football is like this, we went from 3-0 to 2-1, we had a 3-1 penalty and instead Tottenham equalised 2-2", explained Allegri of the game.

"The team showed great character and the good thing is that this is our fourth season and always we are improving in different aspects".

"Juventus play to win the Champions League but we are not the favourites to win it".
