Juventus staged a superb comeback over Tottenham Hotspur midway through the second half here, downing the British squad 2-1 at Wembley Stadium and earning a ticket to the Champions League quarter-finals.
With this win on Wednesday night, Juventus -- the Serie A champions and finalists in two of the last three seasons -- knocked Tottenham out of the tourney before some 90,000 local fans, reports Efe news agency.
Tottenham were gobsmacked by the double whammy from the Italian squad and never quite recovered as the minutes ticked away with Juventus mounting a great defence and even created several chances to augment the score, although they did not manage to capitalize on any of them.
Before the match, a minute of silence was observed by players and fans in memory of Italy international Davide Astori, who died unexpectedly last Sunday.
