Champions League - Follow the Football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus live with Eurosport.

Juventus were deeply angered by what they saw as a failure in the first leg.

No team has ever progressed to the next round following a 4-0 home defeat in the first leg of a Champions League knockout tie.

The Argentine is seeking trophies at Tottenham and if they do that the players will become heroes.

Only nine minutes into the first leg, it looked the game was over.

"What was great about Spurs' performance three weeks ago was the fact that when they went 2-0 down, they didn't stop playing their own game". In Serie A Torino and Lazio were shut out on the road, both games ending in Juventus 0-1 victory and Atalanta was beaten at home in Coppa Italia as well one - nothing.

Juventus brought Higuain to London and he trained successfully at Wembley on Tuesday but Allegri will be without Carlo Pinsoglio, Mattia De Sciglio, Federico Bernardeschi, Mario Mandzukic, and Juan Cuadrado. "But they have quality and if you make a mistake they will score".

Chiellini hadn't scored against Tottenham but made the last-ditch intervention required - clearing Son Heung-min's cross - as the clock wound down at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday.

"Both Higuain and Dybala will play".

"When I watch football and the manager always criticises everyone and sees the phantom and tries to defend himself and fight with you and fight with the fans and fight with this". Juventus have won their last 10 Serie A games on the trot, conceding just once during the process.

Juventus, meanwhile, are on a similarly impressive domestic run.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League games and sit fourth in the table. I see no reason why they can not play.

At the start of the season there was a lot of talk about a hoodoo regarding the national stadium and Spurs, but the Lilywhites have since shown that was nonsense. But Spurs only play one way. Higuain will once again be asked to act as the focal point of the Juventus attack. After all, they were the previous year finalists and will be looking forward to using this to their advantage. Dybala took the chance at the end. It's the best way to enjoy this competition. We have arrived at the most important part of the season and where we can win or lose everything. We created many chances and scored one. "It was very hard".

As predicted yesterday, Real Madrid beat PSG in Paris to make it ideal wins (5-2 on aggregate) over the much fancied former French champions and surprisingly, Liverpool were held at Anfield by Porto.

"We suffered", Chiellini said after the 4-3 aggregate win. Of course, we prefer not to go to extra time tomorrow, because we have a short bench at the moment. The trio form a deadly attacking contingent with their incision and dynamism and will hope to cause plenty of problems for the visitors.
