Tottenham produced a brilliant comeback to draw at Juventus after a disastrous start to their Champions League last-16 first leg in Turin.

Spurs were rocked early on as Gonzalo Higuain scored twice inside the opening nine minutes, the first from a quickly-taken free-kick before he struck again from the penalty spot.

Spurs – buoyed by their weekend win over fierce rivals Arsenal – began to take control from then on and Kane’s 33rd goal of the season, the first conceded by Gianluigi Buffon in 694 minutes for club and country, gave Spurs a lifeline.

Higuain should have completed his hat-trick with a second penalty that he smashed against the crossbar on the stroke of half-time, and Christian Eriksen made Juve pay with a low free-kick that found the bottom corner in the 71st minute.

The result ends Juve’s 11-game winning run in all competitions and leaves them facing a sizeable task if they are to keep their quest alive for a third final appearance in four years.
