Will Juventus Qualify After Tottenham’s Impressive 2-2 Comeback?

Tottenham Hotspur were fantastic against Juventus following an impressive 2-2 comeback at away after a first half 2-0 lead, to put the hopes of the Italian giant qualifying for the quarterfinal stage in jeopardy.

Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen helped Spurs cancel Gonzalo Higuain’s brace in the first half, even though the Argentine forward wasted an opportunity of scoring a hat-trick after hitting a penalty in injury time of first half at the woodwork.

The impressive 2-2 result which Spurs got at Italy means Juventus, will now be under pressure when they travel to Wembley to either pursue an outright win or get an above 2-2 draw to scale through, anything shot of that means they will be out of the tournament.

Unfortunately, the last time Spurs lost a match at their home ground in all competition was on October 10, 2017 to West Ham in the Carabao Cup, they have been consistent and firm at Wembley which should also be a reason for Juventus to worry.

Worse still, the highest draw Tottenham have recorded at their home ground in all competitions since October 2017 has been a 1-1, no team has been able to do any draw above that margin, which should also be a source of major concern to them.

In fact, Spurs have also made themselves unbeatable at their home ground since making their debut in the Champions League last season beating clubs such as Real Madrid, Dortmund, Apoel and ensuring they get an away draw to enable them keep their dreams alive.

If the above statistics is anything then go by, then Juventus will be technically out of the champions league as they may not be able to scale through when they visit England in two weeks time.
