Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League hopes looked dead and buried after Ajax raced out to a 2-0 lead tonight at home, giving them a 3-0 aggregate lead. But Lucas Moura has given Spurs hope with two quick away goals to start the second half.
The Brazilian made it 3-1 on aggregate 10 minutes after halftime, converting a 1 vs. 1 chance on the counterattack:
Just three minutes later, Fernando Llorente had a golden chance to close the deficit to just one goal but his point blank effort was saved. Just as the chance looked gone, Moura gathered the ball on the rebound and somehow found the back of the net with the follow-up.
