Juventus were effectively knocked out of the Champions League before the first leg even ended last night, and Tottenham fans are absolutely loving it.
Spurs fans are enjoying Juventus’ capitulation at the hands of Real Madrid, citing Giorgio Chiellini’s own words that history is important.
After Spurs were knocked out of the Champions League at Wembley, Chiellini said they knew Spurs would crumble, because it’s the history of Tottenham.
“They always create many chances and score so much, but in the end they miss always something to arrive at the end,” the 33 year-old said.
“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 to arrive at the win.”
Needless to say, Spurs fans are rubbing it in that “history is important”, as the side that have lost more Champions League finals than any other club lost 3-0 at home to Real Madrid in the first leg of their quarter-final.
Spurs were undone by two quick Juventus goals at Wembley despite dominating most of the match, something that does point to a lack of experience and composure.
Still, Juventus don’t really have much right to talk according to Spurs fans, as Real Madrid turned Chiellini’s words against the Italian giants on Tuesday night.

Amusing considering they have lost more CL finals than any other team in history.
So much for best defence in the world.

Funny how getting/not getting a red card can change a tie.
