Champions League: Higuain-Dybala inspire Juventus to complete sensational comeback at Wembley

Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min celebrating his goal against Juventus during the second leg of the round of 16 at the UEFA Champions League at Wembley Stadium in London on March 7.

"For us it is an awesome night. We believed in the win", Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini told BT Sport.

Cristiano Ronaldo who will not stop scoring made 12 goals in 8 games played in the champions league this season, he has scored in each of the 8 games played.

But Massimiliano Allegri's side are made of sterner stuff, as they have proved by reaching two of the last three Champions League finals and now going on a 21-match unbeaten run in all competitions this season.

"We are used to playing these games".

"Five years ago, maybe we didn't have this edge, but year after year, you gain it".

Three minutes later Higuain, scorer of both goals in Turin, sent Paulo Dybala clean through to beat a ragged offside line, and lash in and suddenly Spurs were staring at a Euro exit.

Locked at 2-2 after the first-leg, Son Heung-min put Tottenham ahead at Wembley to give Mauricio Pochettino's side the flawless start.

Starting as left wing forward, Son tested Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon from the start.

'We kept splitting the team in two with misplaced passes, but after the break were more balanced, compact and kept it tight. The bubbly Douglas Costa went past Jan Vertonghen, who brought him down in the box but the referee did not give the penalty that Juventus felt they deserved.

Tottenham were looking to rock European football after carrying a 2-2 advantage from the first-leg and were buoyed to knock out the mighty Juve.

The 25-year-old South Korean finally broke the deadlock in the 39th after he tapped home a low cross from Trippier's cross. We can talk about the reasons, but the reality is they create three chances and score twice and we create many and score once.

Dybala missed the first leg with injury and was largely anonymous at Wembley - his first sight of goal not arriving until just past the hour when he drove wildly over.

Three minutes later Higuain's pass took out the whole of Tottenham's static defence in one fell swoop and Paulo Dybala raced through alone to curl the victor past keeper Hugo Lloris.

Spurs bombarded Juventus' goal in the closing stages and both Christian Eriksen and Son fired narrowly wide.
