Tottenham Hotspur have surpassed many people’s expectations by making it through to the last eight of the Champions League.
After three group stage matches, Mauricio Pochettino’s side only had a single point to their name.
A 2-1 victory against PSV Eindhoven in matchday four, Spurs found themselves heading into the match against Inter Milan with only a win keeping their hopes alive and a Christian Eriksen goal ensured that they went into the final match of the group with a chance of progressing.
An away trip to Barcelona at the Nou Camp meant that a draw proved to be enough after Inter drew with PSV; Spurs head-to-head record against the Italians determined who progressed.
An impressive 4-0 aggregate victory in the last sixteen tie against Borussia Dortmund helped to book their place in the quarter final of the prestigious European competition and earn a bumper £9.2million in the process.
Spurs will learn of their next opponents when the draw takes place on Friday.
