Heading out of the competition and needing two goals to progress, Juventus fans were slightly bemused when Allegri decided to bring two full backs on to save the day for the Italain giants against Tottenham.
Spurs were brilliant for the first hour of the match, as Son’s opening goal took them within touching distance of a quarter-final berth.
But no one saw Allegri’s genius, as the Italian’s master stroke worked to perfection, with the full backs stretching the game and allowing Higuain and Dybala to wreck havoc in the middle.
