Double strike in three minutes!
London – Juventus Turin makes it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Three minutes is enough for the Old Lady versus Tottenham Hotspur.
Last year’s finalist Juventus Turin averted an early exit in the Champions League with a double strike within three minutes.
The Italian record holder in the second round of the last 16, Tottenham Hotspur defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 (0-1) despite the backlog. At 2-2 in the first leg in Turin, Juve had lost a two-goal lead.
The goals of Gonzalo Higuain (64th) after a header from Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala (67th) paved the way for the Old Lady to reach the quarter-finals in the second leg (“The game to look up in the TICKER”).
Ex-Leverkusen’s Heung-Min Son had previously led the Spurs, who were the most impressive in the first round, to London’s Wembley Stadium (39th).
In the final stages, the hosts ran desperately, but the defensive effort of seasoned veteran Gianluigi Buffon gave them a tight lead over time.
In the 90th. In the second minute, top goal scorer Harry Kane put a header on the inside post, Andrea Barzagli scratching the ball off the line for the already beaten Buffon.
