Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham deserved win more than draw at Juventus
From ESPN - February 13, 2018

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said his side deserved a win after fighting back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw at Juventus on Tuesday night.

Despite a disastrous start that saw Gonzalo Higuain put Juventus 2-0 up inside nine minutes, Spurs will take a slim advantage on away goals back to the return leg at Wembley next month

ButPochettino believed his side were worthy of leaving Turin with an even better result, telling BT Sport: "Fantastic game. We were sloppy and conceded two goals in nine minutes, but the character we showed was fantastic.

"I want to congratulate the players -- 2-0 down in Turin to a team so difficult to break down. We deserved a victory more than a draw.

"We are more mature now. In the last few weeks, the team are growing and have stepped up. It's a good example of the capacity we have.

"The team was amazing in how they reacted. You need some luck always in football. The tie is open, Juventus are a massive team. We have the hope we can win in Wembley."
