Juventus forward Paulo Dybala ruled out against Tottenham

Tottenham star Dembele targeted by Chinese side Beijing Sinobo

Mousa Dembele linked with China move that would rule him out of Tottenham v Juventus second-leg

With Spurs trailing 2-0 in the first half of the match in Turin, Kane rounded Gianluigi Buffon after getting in behind Juventus' defence and passed the ball into the open goal to bring his side back into the tie with a valuable away goal.

"They've gone away already this year to Dortmund, to Real Madrid so they have nothing to fear from anybody", Redknapp said on TV3's post-game show. "They are a very physical and technical team".

Eriksen, who scored from a free kick for the first time the last two seasons, liked Spurs' chances in the second leg, adding: "We are sure we will have chances at Wembley. I think I was a good judge".

Tottenham now sit in fourth spot in the Premier League table, although they could be leapfrogged by Chelsea tonight, should Antonio Conte's side beat West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge.

Mauricio Pochettino's men travel to Turin to face Juventus in the last-16 of the Champions League after making it through the group stage. The squad only got two days off between Arsenal and Juventus so fitness will most likely be an issue for Spurs.

Juve were risky 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.


Massimiliano Allegri returned to a 4-2-3-1 formation in the absence of Blaise Matuidi with Douglas Costa between winger Federico Bernardeschi on the right and Mario Mandzukic on the left. I can understand. And we are frustrated too, because when you cannot play it is hard to accept.

"Every season he steps up and grows up and he is this type of player that represents our philosophy". The striker also went on to feature for Juventus in the Champions League final in 2015 against Barcelona, a match that eventually proved to be his last in a black and white shirt.

'I don't know if you ever feel ready to win it, ' said Eriksen.

"Is there a part of you that thinks you'd rather see the English team win over the Italian team?"

"It's true that we started the game not in a good way, but that showed that we are mature enough to compete in the Champions League".
