Barzagli: 'Juve nothing if not tough!'

Andrea Barzagli admits Juventus had “50 terrible minutes, but we are nothing if not tough” after knocking Tottenham out of the Champions League.

Son Heung-Min had given Spurs the lead at Wembley, 3-2 on aggregate, but Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala goals in under three minutes turned it around for a 2-1 result in London.

“We are capable of anything, including 50 terrible minutes and then turning the result around. At a certain point, we started playing well and scored two goals,” Barzagli told Mediaset Premium.

“We had to suffer too and were lucky with that upright, but we need luck in this competition!

“At half-time we had to adjust a few things, but above all just had to believe. We started the second half in a bit of a shaky way, but we were facing a really impressive team.

“Juventus proved we were tough and Juve are nothing if not tough.”
