5 things we learned from this week's UCL action
#4 Tottenham Hotspur belongs to the upper echelons of the European footballing world
Juventus versus Tottenham produced yet another classic Champions League encounter where Juventus ran out as winners. But what struck me most is Tottenham's performance on the return leg.
After going behind twice during the first leg encounter in Turin, the way the lily-whites turned things around against the old lady made me think them as the quarter finalists at the expense of Juventus.
The level of exhilarating football they displayed over the course of the two legs is a clear indication of the rise of Tottenham Hotspur as an European footballing giant. If they can keep hold of the core of their current group of players such as Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen etc for a considerable amount of time and keep manager Mauricio Pochettino aswell, then they is no stopping Spurs from lifting major silverwares, domestically aswell as in Europe.
