All-English Final: Tottenham In Comeback Win Over Ajax, To Face Liverpool



Lucas Moura

Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur have made it to their first Champions League final after they came from behind to beat hosts Ajax Amsterdam in their Champions League clash.

Both sides met at the Johann Cryuff Arena in Amsterdam with Spurs trailing 1-0 from the first leg courtesy the goal by Donny Van Der Beek.

The North Londoners were able to recover from that first leg loss at home to advance to the final on the away goals rule after their 3-2 win over Ajax in the second leg.

Tottenham Hotspur came from two goals down at halftime to score three second half goals.

Matthijs De Ligt and Hakim Ziyech had given Ajax Amsterdam a two-goal advantage at the halftime interval for a 3-0 aggregate win at that stage.

Brazilian international Lucas Moura stepped up big time for Tottenham Hotspur after he scored a second half hattrick to edge his team into the final.

The former Paris Saint Germain (PSG) player scored two goals in three minutes at the start of the second half to take Spurs to within just one goal of qualification.

Lucas Moura got the all-important goal with virtually the last kick of the game to take Spurs through to their first ever Champions League where they will face Liverpool in Madrid next month in an all-Premier League affair.
