Higuain, Dybala stun Spurs to send Juventus through
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. 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. Higuain poked in from close range to equalise in the 64th minute before fellow Argentine Dybala, who missed the first leg with an injury, curled past Hugo Lloris after bursting clear. 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. RESULT Tottenham 1 (Son 39) Juventus 2 (Higuain 64, Dybala 67) Juventus won 4-3 on aggregate
