Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 08/03/2018

Veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini has explained why Juventus and Real Madrid progressed to the quarter-finals after the last year finalist dumped out Tottenham Hotspurs and Paris Saint –Germain.

Juventus was held 2-2 in the at home in the first leg of the clash and the Italian Champions needed a victory to qualify to the next round and to make things worst during the second clash at the Wembley they were behind again after Son Heung-min broke the deadlock but Juventus fought back in the second half to claim 2-1 win over Spur. 

Chiellini insisted it was because Tottenham lack a trophy-winning mentality.

 “Tottenham, it's the history of the Tottenham. They always create many chances and score so much but in the end, they miss always something to arrive at the end.

“We believe in the history. Also yesterday in the game between Real Madrid and Paris, the history it's important and the experience is important and tonight we used our skill and arrive at the win.

“Tottenham are on the verge of being able to win this type of game. Sometimes you just need that spark, maybe a trophy win, but we had our experience and made the most of it in these circumstances."

Juventus await their next opponents in the Champions League next Friday.
