Gonzalo Higuain poked in from close range to equalise in the 64th minute before fellow Argentine Paulo Dybala, who missed the first leg with an injury, curled past Hugo Lloris after bursting clear
Juventus produced a Champions League smash-and-grab raid as Paulo Dybala’s goal earned them a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley to send the Italians through to the quarter-final 4-3 on aggregate Wednesday.
Poch: “If you don’t create chances and you lose to a team that is better than you then you can say you need more quality. But if you compete at the same level as a team that played two finals in three years in this competition, only you can be proud.” https://t.co/UeBM2NHmzO

Son Heung-min’s first-half effort had put Tottenham in control after they had drawn 2-2 in Turin last month and there was little sign of a Juve response until Gonzalo Higuain and Dybala struck in three second-half minutes.
“Juventus is a dragon with 7 heads. You smash 2 of them, but you can never kill it.”

It was tough on Tottenham, who will rue several missed chances in the opening period and hit the post with a Harry Kane header in the 90th minute, but proof that Massimiliano Allegri’s experienced Juve, runners-up in two of the last three seasons, remain one of Europe’s toughest nuts to crack.
Tottenham 1 (Son 39) Juventus 2 (Higuain 64, Dybala 67)
