Tottenham Hotspur know all about coming from behind to win a Champions League knockout match, as the mind tends to drift back to that infamous tie in Amsterdam.

After Ajax went 2-0 up on the night and 3-0 up on aggregate, it looked as though the battle was over. Spurs had 45 minutes left to achieve the unthinkable.

However, once the first goal went in, the young and inexperienced Ajax side started to look nervous. That only increased once Moura found the back of the net for a second time.

Of course, Spurs eventually went through after Moura sealed his hat-trick with a 96th-minute winner, but could they repeat the trick?

The Lilywhites come into the away leg 1-0 down again against Leipzig, with the Germans being relatively inexperienced in the latter stages of the Champions League.

Spurs have been there and done it, reaching the final only last season, and Mourinho has claimed that Leipzig will feel the pressure, backing his boys to get the job done.
