Tottenham Hotspur proved to be too tough to beat at home in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Heung-min Son’s strike in 78th minute moved the north London club closer towards making history.

Spurs will take a narrow 1-0 advantage into the Etihad on Wednesday night.

If they manage to hold on to it, the Lilywhites will qualify for the semi-finals of the competition for the first time in the club’s history.
