Buffon got his fingertips to a scuffed Kane drive, but could do nothing when the England global sprung the offside trap on an Alli through ball and dribbled round to score from a tight angle.

Juve surrendered all momentum after their blistering start and Spurs will now be targeting a first Champions League quarter-final since 2011.

"The performance of Eriksen and Kane and Dele Alli was productive". Yes, we have the dream and hope that we can beat them at Wembley.

Tottenham had a mountain to climb against a side which had reached the Champions League final in two of the past three seasons.

That defeat was back at the old Stadio delle Alpi, making Tuesday's draw the first time Juve have surrendered a two-goal lead at the Allianz Stadium in any competition.

Since its creation in 1992, English teams have fared well in the competition, with famous sides like Manchester United's treble winners in 1998/1999, and Liverpool's comeback men in 2004/2005; English players, too, have competed effectively. It was fitting that the Dane grabbed the equaliser in the second half with a low free-kick that found its way into the corner past the despairing dive of Buffon.

Getting Higgy with it: Gonzalo Higuain put Juve 2-0 up in Turin. "In the last few weeks, the team are growing and have stepped up".

Asked for an assessment on how his side has evolved during the course of the season, Pochettino said: "We are more mature now". "I don't think Juventus minded us having the possession but we had a good balance and won the ball back quickly, and that's what we had to do". They were much, much the better team.

For Tottenham, the two away goals - against a team that had only conceded once in its previous 16 matches - represent a reward for the character they displayed.

The Premier League's runaway leaders scored three times between the 14th and 23 minutes - through Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero - before Gundogan added a fourth goal from long range in the 53rd minute.

However, they face a Juventus side who have not lost a home game in Europe since they were beaten by Bayern Munich in 2013 - a run of 22 Champions League games.

He told juventus.com: "The second leg in London is still some way off, so now we turn our attentions back to the league and to Sunday's derby against Torino".
