Tottenham Hotspur progressed to the round of 16 in the Champions League by the skin of their teeth yesterday evening, but what a night it was.
Spurs fans will always remember the time they had to play away at the Camp Nou to qualify for the knockouts, and came away having done just that.
Unfortunately, the club needed a little help from a certain PSV, but we don’t have to talk about that.
On another day Spurs could have won that tie by three or four, but the ball just wouldn’t fall right in the final third.
It took a late strike from Lucas Moura to secure the much-needed draw, booking Spurs a place in the competition when it restarts come February.
Tottenham will also be hoping to get their new stadium ready in time, because playing the knockouts in their new ground would make this Champions League turnaround even sweeter.
Harry Kane had this to say on the prospect (The Mirror): “It would be incredible. Something special, Champions League games in the new stadium. We’ve got to try and create that atmosphere, everyone knows Anfield’s been fantastic for Liverpool.
“They’ve pulled out some great comebacks and results there and I’m sure that’s what we’re going to have to do to progress in this competition.
“Every games going to be tough so we’ve just got to have that belief amongst ourselves and the fans to go as far as we can.
“This is another step forward for us. Of course we are going to celebrate this and it’s massive achievement for the club but it’s important we carry it on and go as far as we can in this competition.”
