Tottenham mounted a remarkable comeback to deservedly draw at Juventus in the first leg of their round of 16 tie.

Tottenham came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Juventus in Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 first-leg clash in Turin.

An early double from Gonzalo Higuain appeared to have set the Serie A champions up for a comfortable victory, before Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen gave Spurs a slight advantage to take back to Wembley with two away goals.

The Argentina striker made it 2-0 in the ninth minute from the penalty spot, but Spurs began to take control from then on and Kane’s 33rd goal of the season, the first conceded by Gianluigi Buffon in 694 minutes for club and country, gave Spurs a lifeline.

Higuain missed a second penalty before the break during an uncharacteristically nervous performance from Massimiliano Allegri’s side, and Spurs secured a fine result 19 minutes from time, when Eriksen wrong-footed Buffon with a free-kick.
