Higuain, Kane spearhead Juventus v Tottenham clash

Higuain, Kane spearhead Juventus v Tottenham clash

Tottenham had a mountain to climb against a side which had reached the Champions League final in two of the past three seasons.

"When I started my career as a manager my goal was to play in the Champions League, to play a team like Juventus here in Turin".

Higuain scored twice in the opening 9 minutes, first with a spectacular volley and then from the spot.

The second leg will be at Wembley Stadium on March 7.

The Tottenham striker is having another excellent season and now leads the Premier League charts with 23 goals in 26 games played.

'The thought in everybody's head was we have to turn it around, there's no other option now, we're 2-0 down and there's only one way and that's to create something, try to come back. "Don't think that I won't be sleeping, because I can assure you I will be sleeping tonight".

Defender Ivan Marcano remains unavailable, while the absences of Andre Andre and Danilo Pereira weaken Porto midfield depth. The Reds have a good record against Porto , with two wins and two draws from the four games played between the two sides.

Juve were unsafe 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.

Harry Kane made Champions League history when he scored his ninth Champions League goal in as many games during Tottenham's 2-2 draw at Juventus on Tuesday night.

Juventus's regrets centred upon a Gonzalo Higuaín's penalty miss in first-half stoppage-time but, make no mistake, this was a richly deserved result for Tottenham.

"Of course it's a very important game but we need to apply our common sense about how he is used in the first few weeks after training. All going well he will be available for Rochdale and we will assess day by day". "I'm so excited. My focus though is on tomorrow", said Pochettino, as quoted by Football London.

That may seem a low mark but it's worth noting that players often get into the Italian newspaper's European Team of the Week with such a score, they don't give 7s and 8s out like confetti. We are going to London to play in a final and we will have to be very good to go through. "We work a lot to play in this type of game against Juventus".

He clearly feels that life around Spurs now - they defeated Manchester United 2-0 last month and drew 2-2 at Liverpool this month - is just about as good as it gets.
