Could do little about either of Juve’s goals and was forced to do very little after the second goal. Held his nerve and stood up well to Higuain’s second penalty.

Tottenham recovered from conceding two early goals to earn an incredible draw in Turin against the Italian champions.
Gonzalo Higuain was left unmarked in the box from a free-kick to score a fantastic volley inside two minutes.
Clearly on the ropes, Spurs conceded again when Ben Davies clipped Bernadeschi in the box to allow Higuain the chance to score form 12 yards.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men grew in confidence however and, despite missing a clear chance, Harry Kane showed his world-class striking credentials by latching onto Dele Alli’s through ball to round Gianluigi Buffon.
The comeback was complete in the second half when more Tottenham pressure told and the insatiable Christian Eriksen rattled a free-kick past Buffon to leave the tie finely poised for the return leg at Wembley.
So how did the Spurs players get on?
