Speed machine a serious concern: Three things learned about Tottenham in Juventus clash
Tottenham were forced to come from behind to rescue a 2-2 draw against Juventus in their Champions League clash on Tuesday.
The Italian side took an early lead in Turin, with Gonzalo Higuain striking home in just the second minute of the game, after finding himself in acres of space from a clever free kick.
Spurs’ nightmare start continued as Ben Davies fouled one of the home side’s players in the box just minutes later, and it was Huguain who doubled both his and his side’s tally on the night.
However Tottenham grew into the game and after seeing some good chances blocked by the Juve defence, Harry Kane managed to round Gianluigi Buffon to halve the deficit.
Higuain had the chance to wrap up a first half hat trick at the end of the first 45 minutes after Serge Aurier’s reckless foul conceded another penalty, but it was cannoned off the crossbar.
In a much more even second half, it was Spurs who drew blood to level the clash, with Christian Eriksen’s low strike from a free kick sneaking past Buffon to complete the comeback.
So what can Tottenham fans take away from the clash in Turin?
Here, Football Insider analyses three things learned in Tuesday’s outing in Italy, including one speed machine who caused serious concern with his display.
