Tottenham Through On Away Goals To The Final In Madrid | See Photos

Tottenham will face Liverpool in an all-English Champions League final after producing a stunning second-half comeback against Ajax to rival the Reds’ miracle win over Barcelona.

Just 24 hours after Liverpool staged one of the greatest-ever fightbacks at Anfield, Lucas Moura scored a second-half hat-trick to secure a 3-2 win in Amsterdam and send Tottenham through on away goals to the final in Madrid.


Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Spurs looked out of it at half-time after a towering header from Matthijs de Ligt and a curling finish from Hakim Ziyech.

Man of the match: Lucas Moura

But Lucas stuck twice inside four minutes to level the scores early in the second half, first slotting home a brisk counter-attack before wriggling past two defenders in the box to smash in the equaliser.

And the Brazilian completed his remarkable hat-trick when he scored the dramatic winner deep into stoppage time to seal another historic night in this competition, and leave Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino in tears.

Spurs will now face Liverpool in their first European Cup/Champions League final on June 1.

After Liverpool proved anything is possible against Barcelona, there was always a sense of belief in Tottenham even when they went behind to De Ligt’s header from a corner on five minutes.

Champions League, then Nations League


The Champions League final will be played just five days before England face the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League. With several players from England and the Netherlands in the Champions League final, that means they face a quick turnaround.
