Juventus coach Allegri: It's obvious we're growing as Champions League team

Tottenham Hotspur have taken control of their Champions League last-16 tie after coming from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Juventus in Turin this evening.

Harry Kane had already pulled a goal back for Spurs, who earned a 2-2 draw thanks to a Christian Eriksen strike in the second half. The Bianconeri can still travel to London with confidence considering the chances they created tonight, not to mention the return of some key players from injury. I think in the second half we played much better.

Fellow analyst Neil Lennon hailed Kane as one of the best strikers in Europe, with both pundits claiming that they can't see the England striker wanting to leave the club despite interest from some of Europe's richest clubs.

It is Tottenham, rather than the Italian champions, who have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals. You've missed reality. Juve is playing to win the Champions League, but we're not the favourites.

"Not many people expected us to get through from the group stage but we won the group instead, so we must be confident against Juventus". What he did next had Tottenham's hopes soaring and fired a result that showed they belong at this rarefied level.

Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld, who recently returned to action after a hamstring injury, did not travel with the squad after Pochettino chose to ease the Belgian back in. Pochettino insists Spurs want to ease Alderweireld back into first-team football but the player himself declared himself fit and ready after last week's cup win at Wembley.

It was the first time that Juventus had conceded in 2018 and the first time an away side had scored in Turin since November. For me, Ryan is a player who will always be special. When you beat teams like Manchester United, then have a good performance against Liverpool away and then beat Arsenal in the way we did - we are just looking forward to the next game and it's probably a good thing that it's coming so quick.

"Of course I am so excited, but my focus is on tomorrow to try and play the game and be competitive". "We go to London tied and we play a final, and probably they will be under more pressure than us".
