Tottenham came from two goals down to secure as precious draw away to Juventus, with Harry Kane netting a record ninth goal in his first nine Champions League games.

Spurs got off to a nightmare start in Turin, with Gonzalo Higuain netting a fabulous reverse-angled volley within the first two minutes of the game.

The Argentine hitman then made it 2-0 for the hosts, converting a spot-kick after Federico Bernardeschi was fouled by Ben Davies in the Tottenham box.

However, the Premier Legaue side fought back, with Kane rounding Gigi Buffon before firing home on 35 minutes.

That goal made it nine in nine for Kane in UEFA’s big cup, a record eclipsing the likes of Ronaldinho and Didier Drogba.

Higuain should have put his side 3-1 up before half-time, only for the striker to fluff his lines from the penalty spot.

After the break, Tottenham pushed for an equaliser and it eventually came on 71 minutes, with Christian Eriksen firing his low free-kick past Buffon.

The game would end 2-2, a result which puts Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the driving seat ahead of the return leg at Wembley next month.
