Tottenham's Lucas Moura Returns To Haunt Matthijs de Ligt On His Juventus Debut
Matthijs de Ligt must be sick of the sight of Lucas Moura who returned to haunt the Dutchman on his Juventus debut.
The 19-year-old made his Juventus bow on Sunday as a second-half substitute following his £67.5 million transfer from Ajax.
But his side suffered a defeat to the hands of Tottenham with Moura continuing to torment De Light following his showing in the Champions League last season.
De Ligt was drafted into the match in the 64th minute with the Brazilian forward finding the back of the net just a minute after he entered the fray.

After Moura leveled the game, Harry Kane then scored a 94th minute winner from the half-way line to secure a dramatic 3-2 victory.
Spurs resume their pre-season with a friendly against Manchester United in China on Thursday.
