Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has said he was disappointed that his side couldn’t go on to win the game as they were “much better” than Juventus.
It’s a result that they would have taken before the game but after coming back from 2-0 down, Tottenham had Juventus on the ropes and could easily have gone on to complete a shock victory at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday night.
Two quick goals from Gonzalo Higuain left Tottenham with everything to do but first Harry Kane pulled one back before Christian Eriksen fired a low free kick past Gianluigi Buffon to level the tie.
Talking after the game Pochettino said that he wanted to congratulate his team for the way they responded to the two quick goals.
“We let in two goals in seven minutes, but the character we showed today was fantastic,” Pochettino said on the BT Sports live coverage of the game (BT Sport 2, Tuesday, 7pm).
“The team was amazing in the way they reacted.
“In the end the draw is good, it’s a good point for us, but it’s a bit unfair as we were much better than them.”
Back in the studio Glen Hoddle said, “He said there he was disappointed they didn’t win the game and that’s the standard he’s set.”
Tottenham will go into the second game as favourites with two away goals behind them.
It plays out March 7 at Wembley and Tottenham fans can dream about a place in the quarter-finals of the competition after a fantastic showing in Turin on Tuesday.
