Tottenham Hotspur were left heartbroken against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League as the Italian side won 2-1 in the second leg to progress 4-3 on aggregate from the round of 16 on Wednesday.

Spurs took the lead through Heung-Min Son, but the Serie A champions fought back with two goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala against the run of play at Wembley Stadium.

Manchester City join Juve in the next round, despite losing 2-1 to FC Basel at home in the second leg. The Premier League leaders won the tie 5-2 on aggregate. 

The two winning sides join Real Madrid and Liverpool in the last eight.

Here are the latest results from Europe's biggest club competition:

Wednesday Recap

It was a cruel night for Spurs at the home of English football, but Juve leaned on their own experience to progress to the quarter-finals.

The north London team dominated the first half, and Son slotted home six minutes before half-time for a precious advantage.

However, the Italians gambled as they tried to reverse their fortunes, and a classic smash-and-grab saw the nature of the tie flip around.

Higuain levelled the score on the night and on aggregate after 64 minutes, and Dybala ran clear of the Spurs defence to crash his effort past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris three minutes later.

The English side were shellshocked by the passage of play, and the Italians immediately went into an overtly defensive formation to protect their comeback.

Harry Kane had a quiet night, but his header hit the post in the final moments as Spurs threw everything at their opponents.

Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News called the action as the Old Lady advanced:

Manchester City eased their way through their home leg against Basel but suffered a rare defeat as the Swiss side pushed hard.

Gabriel Jesus tapped home an opener for City after eight minutes as the hosts flew out of the blocks, but it was to be manager Pep Guardiola's best moment as the visitors caused a minor shock.

Mohamed Elyounoussi silenced the City fans with a 17th-minute equaliser, and Michael Lang grabbed the winner with 19 minutes remaining.

Sky Sports Statto hailed the visitors' record:

It was a satisfying victory for Basel, but a hollow achievement after collapsing in the first leg against Guardiola's men.

City will not be too concerned by the result, and they remain one of the favourites to win the competition as we approach the business end of the tournament.
