Spurs fan Charlie called the Sports Bar phone-in after watching his side come from two goals down to earn an impressive 2-2 draw away at Juventus last night.

The Italian champions' injury list includes Paulo Dybala and Blaise Matuidi, with Allegri admitting he has not yet decided on his final line-up.

"Stopping Kane, just me alone, is pretty impossible", said 33-year-old six-time Serie A victor Chiellini.

"The door is open for me to help him - and the club - because we love him and (wife) Rachel and (son) George and all his family. We dream of going all the way and know that to achieve that, we must beat the best, starting from Juventus", the striker was quoted as saying by Football Italia. We started not in a good way but showed we are mature enough to compete in the Champions League.

Juve squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 in the round-of-16 first leg and they were second best after Gonzalo Higuain's double - a smart volley and a penalty - had put them in complete control inside eight minutes. "I think the recent form we've had, it just breeds confidence".

The UEFA Champions League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus in Turin, Italy starts tonight at 1:15 AM (IST).

The second half saw Spurs continue to knock on the door before Christian Eriksen wrong-footed Buffon to score from a free-kick with twenty minutes left on the clock, much to the delight of Michael Dawson in the Sky Sports News studios.

"We had a 50 per cent chance before and we still have 50 per cent. Tottenham are fantastic", he said.

"They've kept a lot of clean sheets, but we've scored a lot of goals in the Premier League so it should be a good test".

For Juve, it has been a spell of utter dominance, winning all 11 of their last fixtures in Serie A, including a 2-0 victory at Fiorentina last time out. The striker also went on to feature for Juventus in the Champions League final in 2015 against Barcelona, a match that eventually proved to be his last in a black and white shirt.

Moreover, Kane admits that part of the process by which he has emerged as one of the game's top players has involved seeing him parading the Champions League trophy itself.
