Tottenham Hotspur crashed out of the Champions League on Wednesday after a 1-2 home loss to Juventus at the Wembley Stadium.

Son Heung opened scoring for Tottenham on 39th minute of the first half.

After Andrea Barzagli blocks a cross, Kieran Tripper pounces on the loose ball and squares to the far post where Son is waiting. He scuffs it into the ground and the ball somehow goes in with Buffon helpless. 

Gonzalo Higuain equalised for Juventus in the second half to make it 1-1.
