Tottenham Hotspur will be brimming with confidence after their fairly wondrous UEFA Champions League season continued with a 2-2 comeback draw with Juventus in Turin on Tuesday.

[ RECAP: Juventus 2-2 Spurs ]

Down 2-0 after nine minutes against legendary competition, Spurs didn’t just rally to draw the match; Tottenham controlled the better part of it and were good money for a win.

Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen scored, and Kane could’ve easily had a couple more. From the BBC:

“We could have done [capitulated], away from home in the Champions League,” Kane said. “It showed character. It was an excellent performance after that and we take two away goals to Wembley. Great result.”

Now 0-0, 1-1, or a win will do the trick come March 7 in London.

“We are sure we will have chances at Wembley,” Eriksen said. “We go into that game full of confidence and we’re looking forward to it.”
