Balague gobsmacked by one aspect of Tottenham 2-2 draw v Juventus
Highly respected Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague was massively impressed with Tottenham following their draw with Juventus in Turin on Tuesday night.
Balague went on Twitter following the 2-2 result in the Champions League and said that the scoreline was as remarkable as due to the fact that it was at the home of the Italian giants – a stadium from where they have not conceded a single goal in 2018, let alone two.
He said, “Whatever happens Spurs fans have to be so proud of this team. They’re doing what they are doing at Juve’s ground!!!”
Whatever happens #Spurs fans have to so proud of this team. They are doing what they are doing at Juve's ground!!! Those who only praise/celebrate teams that win titles, look away or you might love Spurs tonight

Tottenham looked like they were in for a night of pure misery when a quickfire brace from Argentinian hitman Gonzalo Higuain within the first ten minutes gave the home side a 2-0 lead.
Serge Aurier looked to be struggling to contain the Juve left-side and was culpable for conceding a penalty.
However, Mauricio Pochettino was quick to change the side’s formation and a switch in the centre of the park of Christian Eriksen soon put the Old Lady on the back foot and gave Spurs a command of the game.
The Lillywhites hit back with a Harry Kane effort towards the end of the first-half and a Christian Eriksen free-kick in the second-half put them ahead in the tie on away goals.
And Balague was right in saying that Spurs fans ought to be proud of their side following the result – Juve have not conceded a single goal in their last 16 matches in all competitions.
