It was another English Premiership comeback on Wednesday at the Ajax Arena in Amsterdam as Tottenham Hotspur snatched the remaining Finals ticket from the hands of the youthful giant-killing Ajax boys.
With seconds away from being knocked out, Dele Alli played a cute pass to Lucas Moura, who completed a three-goal second-half comeback – and a hat-trick! – with pretty much the last kick of the match.
It was a brilliant final finishing performance by Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who had conceded two quick goals in the first half, despite having lost the first leg at home 1-0 to the magnificent young Ajax team full of passion, drive and no little talent. De Ligt and Ziyech gave Ajax the 2-0 lead at half-time.
By the end of the first half of the second leg, Spurs trailed 0-3 on the aggregate.
But Lucas hat-trick completes incredible comeback in the second half.
The Premier League is set to invade Madrid on June 1 as Tottenham will meet Liverpool in the Champions League final.
Wednesday match result was really incredible as Spurs scored three times in the second half to erase a 3-0 aggregate deficit and progress on away goals!
It’s absolutely heartbreaking for Ajax, whose remarkable Champions League journey deserved a better result.
