    Juventus proved to the world why they are last year finalist as they picked up a 2-1 win over their English compatriots, Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium despite going a goal down in the first-half.

    The Old Lady of Italian football placed themselves under unnecessary pressure after they threw away their the 2-0 lead at the Allianz Stadium in Turin as Tottenham Hotspur comeback to record a 2-2 draw going into the second leg which gave the English club a slight advantage going into the second leg.

    Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is proud of his club's victory at Champions League opponents Tottenham. At the Wembley Stadium, Tottenham took the lead when Heung-Min Son found the net to become the first home player to score against Juventus in 2018, ending their run of 6 away games without conceding but goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala gave Juventus the victory on the night.

    Higuain took his tally to 21 goals for the season on Wednesday as his equaliser helped Juve beat Tottenham 2-1. He has 5 goals and 1 assist in 7 starts and 1 sub appearance, he's already equaled his totals from last year 's CL in 12 matches and Juventus have conceded just 4 goals in their last 21 games.

    The former Real Madrid superstar Gonzalo Higuain who had also scored twice in the first leg in Turin and also at the Wembley Stadium has revealed how Massimiliano Allegri's side managed to beat Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday at Wembley.

    He told Marca: "How do I explain the win against Tottenham? Soul and character but, above all, heart. We believe in ourselves. We all feel important here and when things go wrong, the team emerge and that's what happened to Tottenham.

    “We were losing, but Juve never give up. We're still alive in three competitions and we want to win them all. That's Juve. The key? Competing and having the ambition to win because we never forget this badge. Happy? I'm very happy to give back Juve how much they give me.

    “Goal and assist from Dybala? He's getting better bit by bit. We need him to be on top of his game, and then the goals will rush back to him and the team. He's had some physical problems, but he's overcoming them. It's only a matter of time because he has all the quality in the world."

    Higuain has shared that he believes there is no better place for him than his current club Juventus. Juventus defender Chiellini was proud of their Champions League triumph at Tottenham speaking with Sky Italia.

    “A team cannot disregard their Coach, just as the Coach cannot disregard the team. I'd say it [the win at Wembley] was very emotional, for us and for all of our fans.

    “Then I'd say it was passionate, given that to qualify in a double-header it takes a lot of passion. We waited for Tottenham to grant us something, and it happened."

    The North London club have failed to qualify for the final eight in all of their attempts in recent times, Spur could have played a defensive game after taking the lead at the Wembley Stadium a style Mourinho is known for. Instead, they allowed the Juventus to sneak back into the match and claim the tie with a quick-fire double in the second half.

    To me it was complacency on the side of Tottenham. Tottenham Hotspur lack of experience, determination and resolve was responsible for their defeat. When was the last time the qualified for the quarter finals?

    Tottenham boss exhibited lack of experience in that game while Max Allegri learn from past error. Experience works a great deal.
    I remember how Bayern Munich eliminated Juventus when Max Allegri made some wrong subs, I believe mistake is allowed.
    Thumps up to Juventus for showing courage and character
