It’s safe to celebrate now, right?

So last season I had a hard time getting into the Champions League because we had a weak group and I missed the first two games due to work and by then we were already in deep trouble. It was probably the low point of my Spurs year, given how infrequently we get to the competition. So yesterday I promised myself I’d see the game and the ceremony before kickoff. I wanted to see the camera pan across our squad as the anthem played.

I did. It did not disappoint. And that game was pretty alright too, huh? 3-1 against Dortmund, a brace from Harry. It was pretty great. And the xG numbers suggest we did pretty well:
