Spectacular night in Amsterdam – euphoria, tears, passion

    An unforgettable night in Amsterdam that has left no one indifferent saw Tottenham Hotspur producing a staggering comeback against Ajax to join Liverpool in the Champions League final

    The Spurs entered the clash as considerable underdogs to prevail in this clash following a disappointing 1-0 loss at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the first leg.

    Things went from bad to worse for the visitors after Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech scored two first-half goals to stretch the Lancers lead to three.

    Ajax’s halftime fairytale, however, turned into a second-half nightmare, as the Premier League giants managed to overcome a two-goal deficit in the final 45 minutes of this two-legged tie.

    The Eredivisie toppers were seconds away from breaking into their first Champions League final since the 1994-95 campaign, but Lucas Moura silenced the Johan Cruyff Arena just a few moments before the final whistle.

    Lucas Moura, a man in the spotlight, has gone from Paris Saint-Germain outcast to Tottenham hero, as his outrageously prolific second-half performance fired the London outfit to the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

    The Brazilian winger has netted his first career hat-trick in the Champions League, and it took him only one half to do that. What’s more, the 26-year-old has drawn a blank in 19 straight Champions League knockout stage outings before, stretching back to his time at PSG.

    In the end, Liverpool and Tottenham will face-off in the Champions League final on June 1, which will be the first time since the 2007-08 campaign that the two Premier League sides battle it out for the ultimate prize.

    1. Ajax lose because onnana couldn’t,t control his ego. He had to show the whole world how smart and good he was bye trying to stroy the last minute off a great game. He thought he only get a yellow card, but he got also a time penalty from 1 minute. And let it be his bad karma , in the end off that extra minute Ajax lose the whole game. Thank you onnana for your ego , and hope you learn now ego kickers always are losers .

    2. Pretty much bro, 2 different halves. Ajax were all over Spurs in 1st, sat deep and invited pressure in the second. Why? Sure, Spurs had to chase the game and defensive consolidation is what you want, but… smacked of fear from what had been a previously fearless giant-slaying outfit. Bad tatic… yep
      thought if they had played the same would have been 4-1. well done Spurs, as a Gooner thats hard to say, but they deserve it whole heartedly. never give up!
      2nd Spurs goal; Onana?
