Spurs tipped to win the Champions League by one of the greatest players of all time

Tottenham Hotspur are on the brink of club history in the Champions League, as they bid to qualify for the semi finals for the first time in their history.

Spurs won the home leg of their all-English quarter final draw against Manchester City last Tuesday at the new stadium.

A late Heung Min Son goal, after Harry Kane limped off injured, sealed a slender 1-0 advantage for Tottenham to take to the Etihad.

Tomorrow night could prove to be one of the biggest in the club’s recent history, as they continue their unlikely bid to lift the Champions League trophy.

Many wrote Tottenham off after taking just a point from their opening three group stage games, and again when they drew Borussia Dortmund in the next round, and yet again when they drew Man City.

One man who has been impressed with the Lilywhites continuously upsetting the odds is Brazil legend Ronaldinho, who has tipped them to go all the way.

He said (Standard): “Why can’t Spurs win the Champions League? Because they don’t have the history in the competition or because they have never won it before? Every team who has won the Champions League had to win it for the first time once. Their result against Manchester City, who are one of the best teams and have some of the best players in the competition, showed that they can compete with the best.

“At this stage they will believe they can go all the way — and if they play as they can then maybe they will.”
