Tottenham crashed out of the Champions League after Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala scored second-half goals to send the Italian side through 4-3 on aggregate. Here’s how we rated a shell-shocked Spurs side that lost 2-1 at Wembley on the night.

Hugo Lloris: 6

Did not have a save to make in the first half but was given little chance to stop the goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala, two ruthless finishers who had broken clean through one-on-one with the Frenchman.

Kieran Trippier: 6

Assisted Heung-Min Son’s first-half goal with a precision cross along the ground but should have done better when totally unmarked on the right-hand side in the dying embers of the game. It needed one of his best crosses but instead got his worst, dribbling straight into the hands of Buffon.

Davinson Sanchez: 5

Made some strong tackles and headers, but showed a worrying sign when his ad-hoc clearance almost gifted Paulo Dybala an equaliser, and then Sanchez got sucked in by Higuaín, who turned him and slotted in Dybala for the winning goal.

Jan Vertonghen: 5

Deserved to concede a penalty early in the game when he brought down Douglas Costa in the box and was also caught on his heels for Juventus’ second goal.

Ben Davies: 7

Worked tirelessly on the left-hand side, while troubled by Douglas Costa, and produced some dangerous crosses, one almost finding Dele Alli late on for an equaliser that may have forced extra time.

Eric Dier: 6

Made some crunching tackles in midfield in a strong first-half showing but took a whack in the second half that seemed to affect him, and he was replaced by Erik Lamela. Sixty-seven percent pass completion is also not good enough from a central midfield player expected to recycle possession.

Mousa Dembele: 7

Had a superb first half in which he was man-marked by Sami Khedira, but shook him off and completed 100 percent of his passes, but he tired and faded as the game wore on just when Tottenham needed him most.

Christian Eriksen: 8

Had another tireless game and went close with a number of good efforts, one in particular that missed by a whisker because of a deflection right at the death.

Dele Alli: 7

Looked to be having one of his best games of the season in the first half, setting up Son and Harry Kane for first-half chances with intelligent positioning, but he was rattled by Miralem Pjanic in the second half and it affected his game. He was eventually taken off for Fernando Llorente

Heung-Min Son: 8

Scored his fifth goal in three games to seemingly send Spurs towards to the quarter-finals. Another fine display. 

Harry Kane: 6

Had a great early chance when he rounded the keeper but shot straight into the side netting. Kane met somewhat of a match in the veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini, who helped confine him to just only one shot on target in the entire game. Unlucky when he hit the woodwork late on. 

Erik Lamela: 6

Came on for Dier to try and inject some life back into his shell-shocked team-mates at 2-1 down, and it worked to an extent as he was able to link up midfield and attack.

Fernando Llorente: 5

Also introduced as a late replacement for Alli as Spurs looked to go even more direct and try and force extra time, but Llorente managed just one knock-down that almost created an opening.
