Juventus vs Tottenham: 5 lessons Spurs fans learned from their incredible comeback

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.

"Of course, we are building on every season compared to when I arrived here four or five years ago", said Eriksen.

Spurs became the first team to overturn a two-goal deficit in an away knockout round match to earn at least a draw since Chelsea won 3-2 at Barcelona in the semifinals in 2012.

Gonzalo Higuain produced an "extraordinary" display against Tottenham in the Champions League and they will need to improve defensively against him in the second leg, according to Erik Lamela.

Pochettino hailed the maturity and character of his side against last year's losing finalists and insists not many teams can come to Turin and dominate the Italian Serie A champions.

"I think the team was so focused". We are a young team playing in this competition, and I say congratulations to the players to show that performance.

It was the season Eriksen first joined the club and he played in two of those games, a 4-0 defeat at Anfield and a 5-1 thrashing by City at White Hart Lane.

What a great couple of weeks it's been for Tottenham. They were much, much the better team.

Manchester City give Basel 4-0 hiding away from home
This was City's 34th win in all competitions this season - one more than they managed in the whole of 2016-2017. Both Kompany and Guardiola criticised Basel's Sankt Jakob Park pitch.

Barely seven minutes later, Tottenham left-back Ben Davies brought down Federico Bernardeschi in the box and Higuain converted the resulting penalty to make it a seemingly insurmountable 2-0 advantage.

Higuain bottled the chance to seal a first-half hat-trick - he smashed his effort against the bar, helped by a whiff of Hugo Lloris's glove, and Spurs went off with theirs tails up.

Eriksen's sublime pass should have resulted in a goal for Kane but his header was superbly saved by Buffon, who also got down well to deflect another Kane shot wide.

Still, Spurs found a way back, in part helped by Juventus sitting back, nearly 4-5-1 at times with Higuain a distant figure, and the striker's missed penalty before the break following Serge Aurier's reckless challenge on Douglas Costa.

Spurs had fallen behind to an early Gonzalo Higuain brace and, after Harry Kane pulled a goal back , the Argentina worldwide missed a penalty.

Asked if he feared his side were about to sink without trace after Higuain's double strike, Kane told BT Sport, "We could have done, away from home in the Champions League. We have the hope we can win in Wembley".

Spurs were awarded a free-kick just outside the box and Eriksen stepped up to take it and he went low into the bottom right-hand corner which saw Buffon fail to keep the ball out of the net.
