Tottenham fans pick out one bad seed from stunning comeback

Tottenham Hotspur managed to come from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday night.

Gonzalo Higuain scored twice – once from the penalty spot – inside the first nine minutes of the encounter in Turin.

Spurs were able to recover from the shock, though, as Harry Kane pulled a goal back and Christian Eriksen later secured an equaliser.

The result has put Mauricio Pochettino’s team in a good position heading into the second leg at Wembley, especially as they have two away goals to their name.

There was one crack on the surface, though, and it was centred around Serge Aurier.

The right-back had a mixed performance, and he made some rash decisions that were costly.

After Kane gave Spurs some hope with a goal, Aurier was in danger of helping Juve to a 3-1 lead when he gave away a penalty by lunging in on Douglas Costa.

The 25-year-old, though, breathed a sigh of relief when Higuain missed the target, but he later received a yellow card, which means that he will be suspended for the second leg.

Some Tottenham fans were not best pleased with Aurier’s performance.
